10/10 Exceptional

Comfortable, clean room. Pleasant, helpful staff. Good food. A great pub atmosphere. Lively, but I was never bothered in my room by any noise. Located in a quiet square opposite Blarney Castle, it's a great location.

Wonderful accommodation. Cosy and friendly. Staff were really helpful. Blarney is a quiet area but its easy to get to Cork City, especially as the bus stop is right outside the hotel

8/10 Very good

The hospitality and friendliness was exceptional. The room was super comfy, great bed and amenities, and we were 5 minutes away (walking) from Blarney Castle and Gardens. I highly recommended this place to anyone planning to spend a day at the castle and wants a stress free commute.

Our best hotel / hosts experience in all of Ireland Gary (the owner) personally welcomed us - such a warm person! The hotel/family has a rich history, the location is amazing and the staff is really really pleasant. We loved chatting with Gary and Jerome. The room is very nice. The location is just awesome - 2 min walk from Blarney castle. The restaurants nearby are nice too. The Muskerry arms bar is a happening place at night. All in all - a very good trip. Gary represents the best of Irish people - Thank you Gary. We were in Ireland for 8 nights and our stay in Muskerry Arms was the best one
