Anne and Ray were tremendous hosts. We enjoyed visiting with them both upon arrival and during breakfasts which were delicious. The location is within easy walking distance to the Blarney Woolen Mills, the Castle, pubs, and restaurants. Other amenities such as a launderette are close by. The rooms were very clean, of good size, and well decorated. The lounge was a comfortable place to relax. The location of Blarney is good for exploring that part of County Cork (Cork City, Cobh, Midleton, KInsale). We highly recommend the Blarney Vale B&B.
