Castle was amazing. A lot of uneven stairs with a thick rope to hold on to keep your balance. Not great for folks who are not steady on their feet or afraid of heights. But for folks who embrace the challenge it is an adventure.The views from the top of the castle were

We stayed for 4 days and were blown away by the country pub feel and friendliness while at the same time the service was extremely efficient. All the food was great but the breakfasts in particular were fantastic. Being within walking distance of the attractions was also a bonus.

Our second visit with friends to this great hotel! The welcome and service here are second to none-yes the rooms could do with a bit of updating but the breakfast and the food here are just great; a lively bar to while away a couple of hours (and sample the Guinness!) and what

Nice cozy room, one double and one single bed, room 206
Hi there, Many thanks for your enquiry of today. The weather is generally good in the months of May, June, July and August. With regards to crowds this would also be the busier times of the year. I would recommend probably 2 rooms (1) 1 double for yourself and perhaps a (2) twin room for your two adult children both with a bed each. The legal age for consuming alcohol in Ireland is 18 years of age. There is no direct shuttle bus from Cork Airport to Blarney and can be accessible via taxi from airport itself or alternatively getting a shuttle bus from the airport to Cork City and then getting a bus from Cork City to Blarney. The price of a taxi from Cork Airport to Blarney would be 20-25 Euros for 1 way and the bus would be cheaper however not as convenient. If I can be of any further assistance please do not hesitate to ask via email. With kind regards Una Forrest
