Stayed for 2 nights in this hotel recently. We got a great deal of €99 for 2xB&B and 1D. Blarney village is quiet pretty and the Woollen Mill shop is the finest of its type in the country.
Booking into the hotel was quick and efficient.
Our room was at the back of the hotel and as a result we had a view of the back yard which was not very attractive. The room itself was dated and heated to the standard of a sauna, I was able to turn down the heating but still the room was over warm. We were on the 1st floor and on the Saturday morning there must have been some kind of exam going on in a room on our floor near the lift, as a result there was a teacher who gave the morning walking up and down our corridor while talking on a mobile phone.
There is no restaurant in this hotel. U dine in the coffee shop of Blarney Woollen Mills shop. While the food was good there was zero ambience and on the Saturday morning we were able to watch a workman perched high on a ladder fixing a projector while we ate breakfast. We gave all of breakfast either watching him and wondering if he as going to fall as he had no helper with him or no protection around the end of his twelve foot high step ladder, or tourists coming into the coffee shop. If u want a romantic dinner while away for the weekend than this is not for you.
The bar for the hotel is called Christies and is very nice and prices are reasonable, however, to get to the bar requires that you have to go outdoors and on a cold wet Jan night this is not exactly ideal. We got soaked coming back from the bar
The staff in the hotel, bar and coffee shop (I could not use the word restaurant) were friendly and polite throughout our stay and all areas were very clean and i must mention the great value coffee and scone for €2.50 in the bar.
Overall, you know it's not going to be 5 star at that price and it was a great value getaway but the hotel needs it's own restaurant.
