“Wonderful”
Reviewed May 16, 2012

We stayed here for one night, whilst touring around West Cork and I thought that it was one of the most relaxing places that I've ever stayed! Our house was overlooking the bay and really, the views were stunning. the house itself was very comfortable and cosy - you can light a fire if you wish so its perfect for a lazy night by the fire with a bottle of wine :) The restaurant was superb - the food really is amazing and the buffet starters are delicious. Steaks done on the grill behind you is something special too. Staff were so friendly. Breakfast was gorgeous too, but my husband was a bit disappointed as it's not your traditional "fry-up", but i enjoyed it. I hope that I'm treated to Blairs Cove again soon!!!

Was here for a wedding. What an amazing loaction! Beautiful surroundings and the apartments and restaurant were also nice. The driveway however, was covered in potholes, or should I say, man holes.

The food on the day of the wedding was great, cannot complain about that,very tasty and not your standard wedding food menu you would expect. However, the service wasn't great. The owners were offhand, rude and honestly, left a bad taste in your mouth. Rather than accomadating people, it seemed to be their way or the high way.

Would love to give this place a 10/10 for the food and atmosphere, but with owners like that, where there seemed to be an evident breakdown in staff relations. I can sadly, only give this place a 6.5/10. Drinks were also on the expensive side, with a vodka and cranberry at eight euro!

Wonderful West Cork. We stayed here on our way to a friends wedding for a night. The location is stunning and the restaurant was absolutely lovely a really great way to spend an evening. Cathy was the person who welcomed us when we arrived and also stepped in to baby sit our son at very short notice. She made us feel so welcome and was so helpful. She even showed us around the accomodation the next day. We really enjoyed our stay here but it was noticed by both of us that the owners did not welcome or take the time for us at all. Cathy was the person who made this stay for us a great one. Many Thanks!

Thank you for this review and the well deserved praise for Cathy our housekeeper. She has been with us for a very long time and is a much trusted and appreciated member of our staff.
We are sorry that we did not get to meet you on this occasion. Having a B&B
yourself you know that one has to be in ten places at the same time 24/7. I am glad however
that you enjoyed your stay despite our absence. Hopefully we will meet on another occasion.

The location is very pretty but the room we had directly over the restaurant is jaded in terms of decor. The breakfast is very nice and homemade. While the restaurant is pricey it is very good but be prepared to be pressurised into having the 'famous starter' by the owner. Overall it's way overpriced for the accommodation standard.

My partner and I stayed here for two nights recently. The accommodation is beautifully decorated, well planned, immaculately clean and extremely comfortable. We had a glorious view over the bay.
We really enjoyed having breakfast served to us each morning, which had fantastic options – we would highly recommend you try their home made muesli with fresh fruit – delicious! On our second evening we had dinner in the restaurant – we were far from disappointed. The selection of starters and desserts, whereby you choose anything you like, is a wonderful way of tasting the great food here. Our main courses were scrumptious. The waiting staff were all very friendly, helpful and great fun to chat to.
Having read some reviews on tripadvisor we weren’t too sure what to expect, however, having stayed and dined here we can genuinely highly rate Blairs Cove House – worth every penny(cent?).
Sabine and Philip – thank you for a wonderful break.

Did not stay overnight....We had a family meal here on last Saturday night. Hav'nt been at Blairs cove for a while and its as good as ever. Magnificent selection on the starter and dessert buffet. Good selection of fish on the menu. The John Dory was perfect. The beef cooked on the open fire was a great feature. Great service-not too intrusive, just right.
Can't wait to go back !!
