Blarney Hotel Golf & Leisure
Ranked #3 of 7 Hotels in Blarney
Reviewed April 13, 2013

Stayed in the blarney golf resort hotel 12/13 April 2013.
I bought a two night b&b stay for two (E99 living social) included was a voucher for E20 for bottle of wine if you dined in the hotel restaurant one night or to be used for a spa treatment.
It was our first time at this hotel, it is located s few miles from blarney village
On arrival the receptionist was very welcoming and dealt with us promptly.
The hotel contained a very nice restaurant food was good and the staff were very helpful and attentive and you are not rushed in any way.bar food also available.
The summing pool 20mtr/spa /gym all well maintained.
The only draw back was you need a car to go to blarney town.

Room Tip: stayed in room 205 not much of a view but very comfortable.

Took a short get-away break Friday to Sunday with my wife for a pleasant stay at Blarney. The staff were very nice and helpful. The room was large and comfortable but decor was bland. Bathroom and shower were fine. The bed was very comfortable, duvet cosy, air con temperature just right, so good nights' sleep. Public areas of the hotel a bit bland also with a lot of plain wood surfaces. The pool, jacuzzi, steamroom and sauna got the day off to a good start. Breakfast was ok with a good selection but the scrambled eggs were a bit lumpy. Had two dinners which were good. Tried the steak, pork steak, salmon and chicken and were satisified. However staff should be able to describe what is in dishes with unfamiliar names. Entertainment in the bar on Sat. night passed the time. Left it late to try and book a teetime for golf on Sat. morning so did not get to experience John Daly's idea of a good game of golf.

Dear Guest

Thank you for your recent review on Blarney Golf Resort. Your feedback is detrimental to the success of the hotel, and we appreciate the time you have taken.

I was delighted to see that you enjoyed your stay, we have since re decorated the public areas, and unfortuantely during your stay we were in the process of doing so, which would have given the bland feel. All restaurant staff are breifed prior to each service and are well aware of each dishes ingredients, so I am not sure what occured in regard to describing the dishes.

Unfortuantely the Golf course is extremely busy on the weekends and hopefully next time we will be able to accommodate you.

Kind Regards

Went on a break with my better half after getting a great value deal online. Stayed Thursday & Friday and made great use of the Spa facilities with a nice pool, Sauna and Steamroom available.
Breakfast was great with a large selection from typical Irish to continental breakfasts available.
We had a meal in the restaurant on the Friday night and it was excellent. The portions were large and the food was tasty and great value to be had for a 2 or 3 course meal.
On the Saturday I had a massage in the Spa and came out feeling relaxed and refreshed. Be warned that they are only opened on certain days this time of year so book well in advance. The Staff in the Spa were great and really did make us feel welcome.
My only gripe was having to cross the reception everytime we had to go to the pool and the internet was not working in the rooms because of a technical issue during our stay.

We stayed here over the weekend and it was a bit of a let down.We had requested an upgrade and got it but it's not the room which is in the pictures on their website very disapointing.Other than that the room was clean but could be better maintained.We went down to the bar both nights and bar staff -Michael & Lorraine are extremely helpful and friendly.We ate in the restaurant on the 2nd night.Steak was burnt and lamb shank served with curried beans and cous cous (strange combination).no mash potatoes available when requested.
We ordered breakfast to the room the 2nd morning and this was a major let down.the food was freezing cold as if it was left out all morning and the bread rolls were like they were left over from the previous day.
Don't think we will be back.

Stayed recently at the Blarney golf resort. We enjoyed our stay. Staff were all very friendly. Hotel very modern and clean. Our room was very spacious and the bathroom of a luxury feel. Used the swimming pool, very nice and clean. Also our son used the kids club he enjoyed it as had a playground he could use also. The go karts were also an added bonus. Hotel is located in the country a short trip by car to Blarney or Cork city, We enjoyed our stay and will be back.

Stayed here for a long weekend over Easter. Staff were great, food exceptional. We stayed in a family lodge which was well equiped and very comfortable.

My only problem was the lack of Wifi access. The brochure says Wifi can be found in all lodges and rooms. We found the Wifi was very patchy. The only place with continual access was reception.

Apart from that our stay was fantastic.

Xmas was both of our busy seasons at work so we booked in for a 2 night stay from the 1st to 3rd of January. We just wanted to unwind and there was no place that we could have done this better. The room was huge, airy, with so many nice touches. The biggest hotel room either of us have ever stayed in. The location is great, so peaceful, the batteries were fully recharged going home. One slight issue was the bed could have been more comfortable. Otherwise fantastic.

Room Tip: Every room here is well located.
