Reviewed 19 August 2014

Just 200 yards from Blarney Castle and, a 5-minute walk from the world famous Blarney Stone. It offers spacious rooms with satellite TV, a restaurant and traditional bar.

Rooms at the Blarney Castle Hotel all have private entrances and feature free Wi-Fi, work desks and safes. Rooms include bathrooms with hairdryers and free toiletries. Most rooms have views of the village green.

The Lemon Tree Restaurant serves delicious cooked breakfasts each morning and a traditional lunch and dinner menu. Johnny’s Bar has a bar menu, local ales and regular live Irish music and dancing.... So Friendly, and a lot of FUN.

Stunning countryside walk surround the property and the Muskerry Golf Course is just a 5-minute drive away. Cork City is just 8 miles away.

As I come from the area, It was a strange feeling having booked in to one of the local hotels.
And not staying at my parents house, but relatives from America had taken my room at home. So me and my guests fro Germany booked in the wonderful Castle Hotel.
On seeing our rooms for the first time, the size of a suite but not the price of a suite, it was WOW's all around. Very clean and tidy. Beautiful view of the village green and Blarney Castle in the distance.
The bar and restaurant downstairs has friendly welcoming staff that serve lovely food and drinks. A family run hotel, you are likely to be served from time to time by the owner Mr Ian Forrest and also meet his wonderful wife Una decorating the reception area and hall ways. I will most certainly give this Hotel my soon to be famous "A MUST STAY WHEN IN THE AREA" grade!!!!!

Hotel room was large enough which had a queen size and a twin size bed. Has an on site restaurant. Dinners were excellent and portions were filling.
Free wifi worked well.
Irish music usually Tuesday and Wednesday nights. We we fortunate to see an Irish dancer perform there. Atmosphere is very welcoming. Hotel is located approximately a quarter mile to the Blarney castle and Blarney Stone. Please note there is no elevator in hotel.

Room Tip: Might advise a room off the front street if staying over weekend. No elevator.

We were excited to stay here from the moment we booked. And wow, this place exceeded our expectations! Una and Ian are beyond friendly and accommodating. They truly care about their guests and make you feel like they are thinking about your needs at all times. They placed us in a room that was ideal for our family (we were traveling with a 1 year old) - room 24. They had a big strong guy carry our bags to the room and set up the cot in no time. We had all our meals there and they were delicious. Ian walked us over to the Blarney castle. He kept going above and beyond for us. :) The evening entertainment was perfect! Singing, dancing, live music, audience participation. Mags McCarthy is quite a show-woman! One of the best nights we had during our whole trip! You will not be disappointed if you stay here.
Thank you Ian and Una. We will be back and hopefully for longer!

Room Tip: Room 24 (2nd floor) is very spacious, quiet and lovely. They will help carry your bags up the stairs...

Stayed for the nights of the 2nd to 4th July inclusive. Sadly vist was to attend a funeral.
From the very beginning Ian and his staff were extremely helpful and kind. We had several meals which were substantial and of good quality. Our room was a good size and very clean and comfortable with a good bathroom.
Will be staying here again on every future visit.

Stayed at the Blarney Castle Hotel in May 2014. Great service from the front desk - helped us carry in bags after they helped us park in the small parking lot. Nice pub but did prefer the Muskerry pub down the street. -- Did the castle tour the next morning and it was great.

Not sure why but we all just loved Blarney --- maybe because we were so disappointed with Cork.

Room Tip: #24 is a large triple room on the 2nd floor - no elevator, but staff were very helpful getting bags...
