Stayed in Blarney Castle Hotel for two nights with a friend as we were attending another friends birthday party. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Good homely atmosphere. The staff were incredible nothing was too much for them and the food was delicious. Would definitely stay again.

We stayed here for two nights, while we were visiting Blarney. This hotel is located on the town square, just steps away from shopping,pubs, restaurants, and Blarney Castle. The hotel was nice, located just above the pub. We were on the 2nd floor (remember in Europe, they often consider the 1st floor as the ground floor. By American standards we...

Had asked for it to be cooked medium...some of it was well done, others rare. Thankfully the waiter handled the situation very well. He offered me something else, apologised for the meal and...

We were staying for three nights for a family do; some of the group had visited before and no wonder they come back.

The big plus for this hotel is the staff-they are fabulous and couldn't do enough for us including finding last...

We had a great experience @ this hotel! All the staff were so very friendly and the hotel was perfectly located in the small village and within walking of the Blarney Castle. They were great about accommodating us traveling with 2 teen girls and they had staff to assist us with luggage. Great Experience :)

I booked this hotel for a group that was slightly larger than they could accommodate so we filled all rooms. Una arranged the overflow with nearby Blarney Woollen Mills Hotel but all business was carried out seamlessly with her. We stayed 3 nights and nothing was ever too much trouble, them even offering to take bags to and from rooms,...

The husband and wife team will , and indeed do, go out of their way to look after all guests in this 3* hotel. The rooms are very clean and most look as though they have just been redecorated.
