We were visiting Blarney on our way to Kerry airport and stopped in Blarney for a break.
Looking for somewhere to eat, we asked a local shopkeeper who instantly recommended the Hotel.
We were not disappointed. To begin with we ordered starters and my wife's chowder was full of meat. My bacon and Brie tartlet was wonderful. So fulling was the Guinness and starters we decided to stay a while and enjoy the local banter rather than any more items from their extensive menu.
I would describe the place as 'quaint' and a good old Irish pub with people playing cards and it was obviously a place where the locals meet.
The staff were extremely helpful and service was their objective rather than the money -making for a very pleasant experience.
