“castle view”
Reviewed 6 July 2012

I arrived with my 3 children last week, and was very surprised at the hotel. The hotel is steps away from blarney castle, and has an excellent location. It is also right behind the blarney woolen mills. We were met and taken up to our room by a very nice receptionist. The room was quite large, and had a typical cottage type feeling. The furniture and decorations are a few years old, but nicer then most of the places we stayed at outside the cities. The room was clean, and we had plenty of room for our family of 5. I loved the pub downstairs, and we had an excellent time sitting around and enjoying time with the locals. There was live music, so if you are not interested in irish music then ask for the room that is not over the pub. We had the room over the pub, and enjoyed listening to the music while we were going to bed. The food was incredible, and I could not believe the quality. It was as good as some of the finer restaurants we dined at in Dublin. I cannot wait to come back.

Stayed 5 nights of a 12 day trip to Ireland. This charming hotel was by far the best one of our trip!
The hospitality shown by all the staff was superior. All the staff truly made you feel welcomed .
We ate all of our meals there. The food was absolutely delicious, from the full breakfast and the dinner menus. The pub was very nice and the entertainment was quite a bonus! If we get a chance to go to Ireland again we would defintely stay again and we highly recommend this hotel!!
We loved Ireland and thank you for adding to making our trip such a pleasure.

Stayed 2 nights, and enjoyed our stay at the Blarney Castle Hotel. Our room was on the 2nd floor, and was clean and comfortable. The staff was superior! Upon check-in, our luggage was whisked up to our room, and was given a simple tour of the room and hotel. The clerk also provided details of breakfast, and other dining options in Blarney. Breakfast: able to pick from continental side of menu...cereal, fruit plate, etc, and pick a cooked to order breakfast dish from the full service menu. Delicious and well prepared. All in all, our stay in Blarney was made special by the care and attitude of the staff.

We really enjoyed our short stay at the Blarney Castle Hotel. It felt less like a "hotel" and more like a large B&B. The staff was super accommodating and friendly. And it's right across the street from Blarney Castle which is a must see in Ireland. Nice pub inside the hotel and the restaurant was very good. Highly recommended!

This place is absolutely fab and ticks all the boxes. Our golf society stayed here for 4 nights and we could not have asked for a more enjoyable break. Una & Ian were fantastic hosts and looked after us throughout our stay. We have been to Ireland on many occasions, but this was by far the greatest hospitality we have experienced. Even when we were rained-off the golf course on our first day, Una & Ian went out of their way to research what alternative trips we could do to pass the time. It just so happened, whilst mulling over theses options, we stayed in their bar... ALL DAY!!
A great place, with great hosts, locals, music and food. I would highly recommend this to all.

A thoroughly enjoyable stay at a very friendly and well-run hotel. Ian and Una made us feel very welcome from the minute we arrived, as did all of the staff. As has been noted, the atmosphere in the bar was terrific, with amiable locals more than happy to chat to "well-refreshed" foreigners! Food was good too, the rooms were of a decent size and Blarney itself a picture. A great stay and highly recommended.

Una, Ian and all the staff made us most welcome as we (13 of us) spent 4 nights using the hotel as our base to play golf.
No request was too difficult.
Just one example - we had a late game down at Kinsale some 1 hour's drive away which meant we wouldn't get back to Blarney until after 10.00. We rang ahead and they kept the dining room open for us producing as good a meal as ever with friendly service.
The bar had a great atmosphere; it is used as a local by many so we had great conversations and many laughs
By the way the breakfasts are great.
