“A Gem of a B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2008

A beautiful place to stay. The rooms were huge, clean, and well maintained. A nice walk into the center of Blarney. The owner was very helpful on where to go and by what time we needed to be there. If you ever stay in Blarney, this is the place.

This would have to be the best B&B I've stayed in so far. My husband and I stayed at Blarney Vale for 3 nights on a trip around Ireland and really loved this B&B. The double room was spacious and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious with an excellent selection (my husband loved the 'Blarney Vale Special'!). The Blarney villiage square was a nice 5-10mins walk and has plenty of restaurants/bars to choose from. Blarney castle is a 'must' and is only 10mins walk away from Blarney Vale B&B. Anne was most very helpful in advising us on places to visit and we enjoyed a great day trip to nearby Cobh and Kinsale.

I highly recommend this B&B. There's lots to see and do in the area. I only wish I could've stayed longer!

My family and I stayed with Anne in her lovely home and were exceptionally well accommodated for, including very spacious and comfortable en-suite rooms and a fabulous home-cooked breakfast. Our hostess was very friendly and provided excellent knowledge of the local area and places to go and places to eat.

A truly pleasurable experience and I would not hesitate to go back.
With all the driving that a touring holiday involves, it was a pleasure to stay somewhere that is within an easy 5 min walking distance of Blarney village and castle.

Accommodation costs were very reasonable especially given the quality of stay.

  • Liked — The atmosphere and spacious comfort
  • Disliked — The weather - but not much they could have done about that!

Stayed for one night as just a flying visit however, if we're down this way again we would certainly go back. An extremely friendly welcome and everything you could want from a b&b...

This is a very nice B&B to stay at. The rooms are very clean and a good size. The bathroom is typical size of most B&Bs. The beds are quite comfortable to sleep. The views aren't the best, but you are looking at country side. It's a bit of a walk, about 10 minutes to get to Blarney Castle, but the town is nice to walk through. The owners are very sweet and helpful. They can provide information about the sites, driving directions, and excellent places to eat. The owners are also very good cooks because breakfast was delicious!

Our family had and awesome stay at the Blarney Vale B&B. I agree with all other posters that Ann was genuinely the friendliest B&B owner we had the pleasure of visiting. And, that's saying much, for we were blessed at all our B&Bs. It is a short walk to Blarney town center. Ann's breakfasts were wonderful, cheerily served; and our family room was neat, clean and comfy. We would certainly return on another trip. You will NOT be disappointed. Most highly recommended.

  • Liked — Ann's friendliness and marvelous breakfast, nearness to Town Center
  • Disliked — can't think of a thing

My girlfriend and I are in our 20s and found this place to be an absolute treasure! Anne's hospitality was what made this B&B the best place we stayed during our 8 day stay all over Ireland. Anne was so nice and even took us down in to town to let our legs do some resting after the walk around Blarney castle. She is by far the nicest B&B owner we have run in to in Ireland. Breakfast was great and the room was awesome! Take it from me, if you want a good place to stay in walking distance from the city and not a really long drive from some great cities and islands, this is the place to stay. My girlfriend still misses staying at Anne's.
