We had a drink and a meal at the blue bull. The staff behind the bar were very friendly and welcoming. A nice varied menu with a good selection. If you're ever in sneem its well worth popping in for a bite to eat and a drink.(so to some the blue bull up) Good food good drink good price.

Travelling with a group of 8 we happened upon this restaurant in Sneem by pure accident. As another reviewer said there was one server tending bar and looking after the food also but she had our order taken and food in front of us in no time. Everyone of us had a fantastic meal. Portions were very generous and the... More

We had been looking for traditional Irish food and went into the Blue Bull. That is what we got. There was a single person serving the food and beer to the locals. She was on top of it. We had a very tasty meal in front of us in no time at all. I tried the Irish stew and my... More

The scallops I can thoroughly recommend ,but the dessert of Sticky Toffee Pudding was far too dry. The service was efficient warm and friendly ,which was our experience when we went there previously also.

We have been to the Blue Bull a number of times on our visits from the US since 1990. This time I had the seafood and pasta in a creamy garlic sauce. Not heavy at all, delicious. My husband had the fish & chips and also was pleased. We then moved to the bar and had an after dinner drink... More

We went here as we had read a review by Andrew Lloyd Webber, the food was great but we were very disappointed in the eating area rather dark and felt squashed

We travelled for 21days around the circumference of Ireland and recall the Blue Bull in Sneem as providing the worst meal at gouging prices on the whole journey. At 25 Euros per person this was to be the 'seafood special' of the day - linguine with fresh prawns and crab meat. It arrived after some time on plates so hot... More

A fantastic pub with good food, wonderful wine and a lovely outdoor smoking area. We visited several times during a week's stay in Sneem and the staff were so friendly and welcoming. Mary was especially helpful in recommending great local beaches for us to walk our spaniel.

We've eaten here several times during stays in Sneem and can recommend it to any visitors. A nice range of dishes which should suit most people, and all at a sensible price. The sticky toffee pudding, if on the menu, is highly recommended!
