Just back from a 2 night stay in Blarney Castle Hotel.
Very traditional setting. Staff were very friendly. Breakfast was cooked to order ans is genuinely the best breakfast menu we have experienced.
Room was huge with all expected features inc free wifi & lcd tv.

Great location Woolen Mills at rear, Castle accross the road.

Highly recommended to anyone visiting Blarney.

Stayed at Blarney Castle Hotel with my mother in October on a trip to meet up with family. The hotel was very accomodating/lovely rooms/very spacious. My mother was meeting some cousins and the hotel was very accomodating to let us sit in their lounge area for literally 7 hours catching up. Highly recommended.

The location is terrific for a visit to Blarney Castle. The room was a nice size and comfortable. We had a wonderful included breakfast, with excellent, personable service. The reception, specifically Grace, was warm and efficient. Highly recommend staying here if you are planning a stop in Blarney!

My wife and I stayed at the Blarney Castle Hotel in October. The hotel is a short walk away from Blarney Castle. It is also within walking distance of other pubs and shops. In reality you do not need to leave the hotel for a great pub. We had dinner and breakfast at the hotel and they were both delicious. We went to another pubs in Blarney, but we couldn't resist the traditional music being played at the Blarney Castle Hotel that night. Many locals were in the pub and the traditional music was amazing. Many people showed up to play. After a little bit of music, people started dancing. The atmosphere was unforgettable. The staff was great, and the locals were friendly and welcoming. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Recently stayed here with 2 other friends . The guest bedrooms were spacious clean and very well furnished. The food was definately the best we had to date in Blarney . We both had a Country Casserole Dish which was 10/10. The service was great. We stayed on for the entertainment which was sø great . The people sitting next to us were so friendly . Breakfast was sø tasty and what a great menu on offer. We will visit again
