“Excellent B & B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

Stayed here for one night with two other couples. Great location, very comfortable and clean accommodation. First class breakfast, highly recommended. My only little and very minor niggle is ( and this applied to all the places we stayed bar one) why are the towels so tiny? Otherwise it was a perfect start to our holiday. Ann was a perfect host and let us leave our luggage as we arrived early in the day so it didn't have to be left in the cars and we could go and explore Blarney.

Thank you, Anne, for making our stay comfortable & cozy. Your warm greeting at the end of a busy day of sightseeing was most welcomed, and you didn't steer us wrong in your dinner recommendation. The beds were comfortable, and breakfast from a menu? How awesome was that! We also enjoyed meeting up with the Hunts again who we first met in Kilkenny. Rebekah said she wanted to wrap you up & take you home with us because you were such a delight to talk to. We hope to come back for another stay real soon. God bless, Rebekah & Peggy D.

We had such a lovely stay at Anne's great home. She was a fantastic host - great beds, wonderful breakfast and really enjoyable time just sitting and talking. Couldn't ask for a better place to lay your head and just simply enjoy !! Plus only minutes to the castle. We are coming back next year with the kids and will definitely stop in again.

Anne, you have a wonderful place and a great location. Walking distance to the Blarney woolen mills and Blarney Castle. Don't miss this wonderful B&B, this B&B was by far the standard for others to follow. Great breakfast choices made to order. We will book here again when back in the Cork area.

Room Tip: Any room would more than satisfy!!

Blarney Vale was the perfect location for a stay in the Cork area. I was on a "whirlwind" tour of Ireland, and the two days in and around Cork were not enough to do it justice. Blarney Vale is reasonably-priced, centrally located, and quiet. The hosts are never intrusive, and have all the local information you need, and offer it freely when asked. The food was amazing--as good or better than any other B&B food I had throughout the "whirlwind".

This was my first real trip to Ireland. The next time I go back, I seriously plan to spend more time in this area to explore all I missed this time around--and there is so much in the area. Cork City is a great central location to "camp". Day trips are easy, affordable, and fun. And this is your perfect B&B.

Disclaimer: I am from Texas, where a "day trip" might be defined differently than what you're used to. But Kinsale is an easy drive, and you'll be amazed at the food there. Don't miss this beautiful area of Ireland, and don't miss Blarney Vale B&B. There's so much more here than the castle you may have heard about!

Room Tip: As far as I could tell, there wasn't a "bad" choice for a room. The B&B is set bac...

This bed and breakfast was lovely, beautifully decorated and very affordable! The location is excellent and you can very easily walk to the center of town and the Blarney Castle. Anne is extremely friendly and charming. We wanted to stay and just become part of her family. Breakfast is hot and made to order. The icing on the cake is every room has its own private full bath. I am telling everyone I know about her b&b. We slept better than we do at home. I can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: Anne has family rooms with multiple beds if needed, just ask and she will be more than happy to set...

Stayed at the Blarney Vale just recently in March of 2013. I have to say what a great place! The location is very convenient, plenty of parking, nice, clean rooms, and the best hosts you could ask for. Will definitely stay again if I'm ever fortunate enough to revisit Ireland. Try the Blarney Vale breakfast special! It's delicious!
