My wife and I just walked in the door of the motel (it's our anniversary) and we found two bottles of wine, as well as a card wishing wishing us a happy anniversary. The room is GREAT and very clean. It's very obvious that they really care about the experiences of their guests. 100% A+ grade

Anyone considering a visit to Ft Lauderdale should seriously consider staying at the Blarney Castle, now under New Management and Ownership. Rooms are Basic but with all the facilities one requires including a good Swimming Pool, Laundry facilities and cooking facilities in most of the rooms. Free car parking and a short walk to the Beach. The new owner is... More

I fell upon this find 30 yrs ago and ever since I have stayed here when Marie can accommodate us. It's our first choice over anything else. It feels like coming home because I have gotten to know the owner and her staff. They make us feel welcomed every time including her long standing customers who like us have been... More

Old property - one of the 60ies/70ies type of motel; but CLEAN and Maria the lady owner is very nice. Very close to the beach (10mins of slow walk). VERY convenient price-wise co pared to chain hotels which night have been through the remodeling but from outside look like being same age. Don't be surprised that you don't find any... More

We stayed here for one night prior to a recent cruise. We had originally booked a place closer to the cruiseport. Are we ever glad we changed. Though this place has been around for decades, upkeep has been first rate. We stayed in a nice one bedroom suite very near the pool. With fewer than twenty rooms in the motel,... More

Loved this motel very close to the beach in Lauderdale. The owners were great, friendly and helpful. We loved our stay. The motel reminds me of something you would find in the 50s. Highly recommended.

I always stay here with my parents when I visit fort lauderdale. Marie the owner is such a nice host and the Blarney castle is like a resort it is wonderful. Everyone who stays at the Blarney is very nice. It is across the street from the beach

We booked here for one night before a cruise. The Sheraton on the beach was filled up with my fellow passengers. What a find! True midcentury Florida historic. The motel is spotless and bed was comfortable. Marie has owned it since the mid 70's. She greeted us and helped us up with bags to the third floor penthouse. The unit... More

This was my second stay at the motel, its literally a 5 minute walk to the beach and about 15mins to Beach Place Las Olas strip. Marie is so nice she truly makes you feel like you're at home. The building is old but so are all of the little motels around, the rooms are big and clean. If you... More

Have just spent 3 lovely days in the care of a wonderful lady owner who made our stay a real pleasure. What a wonderful family atmosphere,warm and welcoming. Will definitely return.it was a pleasure meeting other guests, it felt more like a private club than a motel.
