We stayed at the Muskerry Arms for three nights in one twin and one single room. I’m quite surprised about some of the negative reviews here. True, there is no ‚classic‘ reception. As the reservation email clearly stated, check-in was in the pub and took about 1 minute in total (friendly greeting, finding us in the reservations book and handing... More

This was a great way to relax after kissing the Blarney stone. We had a great meal followed by a few pints of Guinness. The bar had live music and a great atmosphere. The service was outstanding and nothing was to much hassle. I'd dwindling recommend this bar for food or just a few pints.

Staying in a local hotel with little atmosphere came in to Blarney to have a meal. This Bar was recommended on Trip Advisor. It was packed when we arrived in the bar area with tourists and locals watching the last few minutes of Hurling Match. Waterford v Kilkenny. Great Atmosphere. We soon found a table with the assistance of bar/floor... More

If you stay here, please check the following before they put you in room 5 (twin room). Check the lights work. We couldn't get the main lights working, only the lamps. Despite trying many switches.

Very nice pub. Very good food and the atmosphere is really nice. We both enjoyed our meals and Guinness. The entertainer for the evening (Kieran) was pretty hilarious and made sure everyone felt welcome there.
