Myself and my husband stayed here september 2013 as we got a very good deal, this is a lovely hotel, quiet and the rooms are very nicely decorated, the breakfast is in the blarney woolen mills cafe attached to the hotel, the breakfast was great and they have lovely fresh scones, pastries and theres a great atmosphere as the locals come in for their morning tea and coffee. The evening meal included is in the bar accross from the hotel and we got a lovely meal both nights and the staff were very friendly .

Room Tip: We got a room over looking the coming and going of blarney woolen mills but it might be quieter on t...

Our stay at Blarney Wollen Mills was great. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Our room was extremely clean as well! This hotel is in great location for walking to the castle and just walking around town.

Lovely staff in hotel reception and restaurant areas. Good food. Bedroom adequate but unfortunately we overlooked a corrugated roof and derelict yard. Could almost have touched the roof!! Carpets and furniture throughout dated and worn and some wooden surfaces badly marked. Net curtain on window ripped and internal window sills in need of a good clean. However bed was really comfy and spotless and our cleaner was very fussy about changing the bed and keeping bathroom clean. Nothing that a bit of TLC won't sort. The rooms at the back need some light coloured furniture etc. after all that we enjoyed our stay. Great staff.

Great accommodations to rest & enjoy Blarney. I suggest at least 2 days to tour the castle and grounds. Make sure you check out the fern grotto. The restaurant was great. Also have a very large, extensive woolen mills store.

Blarney Woollen Mills is justifiably proud of its past history as a former mill which provided generations of local people with work. However, it is particularly keen to acknowledge the amazing foresight and spirit of Christy Kelleher who rescued the derelict mill and revitalised the village of Blarney. The ivy-clad stonework facade, the large parking areas, the craft superstore are impressive. The welcome at the reception desk was warm and the receptionist on duty went out of her way to suggest what to do over the next 2 days (the famous Blarney stone, visit Cork city, Cobh etc) The interior of the hotel contains an eclectic mix of furniture; there are a number of cabinets with jewellery, crystal etc. However, on entering the lift, we were assailed with an unmistakable musty odour - the carpet seemed dirty and unkempt. There is a fitness centre and perhaps damp feet/shoes may be the cause but it is so off-putting - please get rid of that manky carpet! The room was spacious, overlooking the front of the hotel and Blarney castle was in view. However, the effect was spoiled by a very dirty, stained tub chair - we covered it with a towel. The windows are very old, fixed closed and single-glazed but each window has a 2 panel double glazed insert which can be opened. It was disconcerting to note the amount of black mould - a good deep clean on a regular basis would eliminate that problem, even with very old window fittings. House-keeping needs to inspect the rooms; in our room the curtain was hanging badly off the rail but this was ignored. On our first morning, we went to breakfast shortly after 9. It was difficult to work out exactly what to do or where to sit as the restaurant is open to the public for snacks etc. We eventually chose a table and set it using bits and pieces from neighbouring tables. When the server came, we ordered breakfast and were very happy with the meal when it arrived. In complete contrast on the 2nd day, we were greeted on entry and led to a fully prepared table. Needless to say, breakfast was a completely different experience on that occasion! So, all in all, Christy Kelleher and his family have set the ball rolling but there are some glaring inefficiencies and problems that need urgent attention.

We stayed here in April for my mom and dad's wedding, they did an excellent job I must say! When we came in from the church, we had our pictures taken in the castle gardens and in the reception of the hotel, the hotel itself is absolutely beautiful!!! Loved the stone-work walls! A lot of is stayed, I think maybe we booked out about 12 room. We picked a lovely 3 course meal for all the 200 people and the food was fantastic! The function room is also beautiful! They decorated it just the way we wanted it and we were so happy!The only 2 things I didn't like were the other guests and the bar, the other guests staying there knew that we had a wedding booked, since the hotel told them, yet they said they didn't mind and still booked in. We made hardly any noise down in the function room and all they did was complain which drove my parents mad since we were actually being reasonably quiet. Also the bar was extremely expensive, 5.50 for a bottle of Smirnoff ice! Ridiculous. Other than that, we really enjoyed out stay here and would definitely stay again. I would definitely recommend booking this hotel for a wedding.

We spent 4 nights at this hotel in July and had a lovely stay. The hotel was clean and the room was very comfortable with a very clean and sparkling bathroom. Room service each day was excellent. The food and service at the next door (and associated) Christy's Pub was second to none. We even travelled back specifically each night to eat at Christy's as we knew we would get excellent service, fantastic food and a great choice from the menu, all at an exceptionally good price. Would highly recommend the hotel and pub and would definitely stay here again given the opportunity. An excellent base for travelling around the south of Ireland. We didn't have breakfast here on any day so cannot comment on that, or on the next door Mill Restaurant. On the downside, there is free wifi throughout the hotel and complex, but the signal strength was so poor that we couldn't get it inside the bedroom for 95% of the time, despite an access point being located right outside the room!
