“Not one meal, but many”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2014

I have been to Blair's on each of my sixteen trips to Ireland since 1990. I always eat in the Bar.
The food has never failed to impress in quality (and quantity) and the atmosphere and ambience in the bar is always a bonus.
Though John and Anne seem to have taken a back seat of late, Richard keeps up the long tradition of excellent, friendly, personal service.
When I am in Cork in September, Blair's will again be my preferred eaterie,

“Relaxed atmosphere with quality food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

Although the location is a wee bit out from Cork this place is well worth a visit. The staff will take your order in the bar then show you to your table when it is ready. The food is of a high standard and the ambience of the place is terrific. Really enjoyed our visit and planning to return soon

“The best apple tart you will ever have.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2014 via mobile

Its a lovely, cosy, warm spot. Very relaxing. Their wine list is extensive and varied. On three visits the food was consistently excellent and the beef in the casserole is on par to fillet steak. There is a real personal feel to the place and a genuine care. I couldnt agree more with the owners reply to a previous bad review. To finish this off, with no exaggeration, the apple tart is the best you will ever have in your entire life. Its seven euro but its worth it. A hidden gem.

“Too expensive for bar food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2014

Food good but way too expensive for average bar food. Would not bother returning as there is just as good places near by. Toilets need a revamp immediately. Boiled potatoes in their skins and we were not even asked what type of potatoes we would like ie mashed, chipped.

“Best Place in Ireland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2014

Here we definitely had our best meal in our almost 2 years in Ireland.
This spot match completely the ideal irish countryside pub.
Very good food, cosy place, very friendly staff and guests, and of course great beers.
If you are in the Cork area you definitely should find the time to have a meal here.
