“Food was pretty good but the dessert was STELLAR!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

The Lemon Tree is a clean, quiet nice restaurant in the village (attached to the Blarney Castle Hotel). Our server, Maeve, was a peach. We had meals that were on the good side of average but thought we had died and went to heaven when we had the rice pudding with berry compote for dessert. I NEVER get two desserts but I got two that night.

The staff were friendly and helpful. It was a lovely evening.

“Great food close to castle entrance”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

We were part of a tour group and found few food options at blarney castle, but just across the street from the castle park entrance is the Lemon Tree. A delightful little restaurant with great food and great service. Good menu selections as well.

Loved the food. It exceeded expectations. We both had fish and pudding and were impressed by quality and standard. Receptionist/waitress was very warm and friendly. She deserves a pay rise!
