I needed an overnight trip to Blarney at the last minute and stayed here. Very reasonable price of 49EURO B and B. Clean room, though only lukewarm water for a shower in the evening and blocked drain. The breakfast was decent, and cooked fresh. Now the room was upstairs to the pub, and in hindsight I probably shouldn't have booked...

Thank you for your feedback, Fiona. We will look into your comment about the temperature of the water. All shower drains have been cleaned recently but we regret if that inconvenienced you. We're glad you enjoyed breakfast and the warm and inviting atmosphere. We make no secret of the fact that the guest rooms are above our pub and that...

Can't beat the location to the Blarney Castle. Literally a 5 minute walk to the ticket gate. It was cool that there was a Pub/Restaurant downstairs. It also seemed like the most popular pub in the town out of the 3 or 4 bar sthat were around. If pub food isn't your thing, there were a few good restaurants directly...

Thank you for your review, Nigel! We're delighted you found the water pressure to your liking, as well as the rest of your stay. It's true, we do have live music in the bar at weekends. We make no secret of the fact that we have a pub downstairs so we're glad it didn't spoil your visit. Sincerely, MaryBeth

Stopped here for refreshments after visiting Blarney Castle and gardens. It was an easy walk to the picturesque square of Blarney. A lovely pub nicely decorated with may rooms for eating and relaxing with some cute "snugs" for 2. There are lodging accommodations but we did not see them. The owner Jerome was very friendly and warm. Very good comfort...

I was just here for one night. After a gruelling 7 hour drive I couldn't tell you how pleasant it was to be greeted at the door, "Hello you must be Siobhan". All the more impressive as I entered through the bar (reception closed due to renovation work) The room was really lovely very spacious and well appointed with wooden...

We had a great night's stay at the Muskerry Arms, even though it was very busy in the bar downstairs we did not find the noise intrusive. The room was large, modern & clean with every thing you could possibly want available in the room. This included a heater to supplement the central heating which we did use, a fan,...

Accommodation is clean, warm and comfortable. Obviously refurbished recently, with no expense spared. Spacious rooms and spacious hallways. Staff are very friendly and nothing is a hassle. The food was excellent, with a good choice on the menu. The only drawback was something that may not be a big deal for some, may even go unnoticed for others, but for...

People are very nice. Food was awful and room is cold as hell in the winter. Bar is right bellow the rooms where we stayed at, and since it was live music day, i could hear it in the room to 1am. I also heard people cleaning up the bar, up to two am. Even though people are very nice,...
