We stayed here on our last night in Ireland (a Friday) and were definitely pleased. It's right in the middle of town with the Blarney Castle basically across the street. The staff were nice and helpful and the pub being right downstairs is a plus, although if noise bothers you it might be an issue as there were people talking loudly on the street below until at least 2AM, but our room WAS right over the front entrance. A great band played live music that night so it was nice to have a few drinks with the locals and then just walk upstairs to sleep. The room was large and clean. The food was fine - not the best, not the worst either. The breakfast waitress was very nice and accomodating.
As others have mentioned, it is a bit weird that there's a reception sign pointing upstairs so you enter there, walk through several halls and doorways to find reception where there's then a sign that says sorry, go down to the bar to check in. Mine as well just remove the reception sign upstairs and put it at the front entrance no?
