Perfectly good Sunday lunch at the Blarney Castle Hotel. I had the beef, others in the party the rack of lamb. All in all, got people back on track after a boozy weekend. They could have been a bit more generous with the gravy though

Unfortunately we had only 1 nite stay here. We should have stayed longer. The Irish hospitality was so welcoming. This hotel is so adorable and Sheila and Robert were so engaging and helpful.

The owners of the hotel, Ian and Una, engaged me to photograph their premises for the hotel's new website.

If it's craic ceol and a bit of banter, then you gotta visit the Castle Hotel Irish dancing, sport, friendly staff, and super food. Situated right on the square, you're right in the heart of Blarney village. No need to go beyond the Castle Hotel for your weekend stay. Well worth a visit👍

Bud (Irish day tours) was an entertaining and informative driver/guide. I wasn't sure I'd actually "kiss" the Blarney Stone but ended up so doing. Had a great day and Blarney and Cork well worth visiting.
