Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Stayed Saturday night in the Piggery. Absolutely lovely location, the staff were welcoming and all suitably observing the Covid practices. The Piggery is a cosy apartment and very comfortable, we had welcome sherry and shortbread. The dinner was superb. We arrived a short time before dinner and were given our menu, including the wine list which we would then use and dispose of afterwards. All the staff wore visors and observed the hand sanitising and social distancing without being oppressive. The meal was outstanding - the whole place was busy and buzzing. Definitely will return and defiantly recommend this gem.

i was here last year, enjoyed a really good meal, and was looking forward to another when i went back, recently. i was not disappointed. i had wondered how they would manage the buffet-style starters, and it was done efficiently, one group at a a time. like a military operation. but the food was a good as ever, thankfully. our meaty mains, steak and rack of lamb were brilliant, perfectly cooked, but i reckon the star of this meal was the scallops. they were lovely. the deserts trolley is probably a bit of a danger zone, but well worth the risk. try a couple of them, they're so good. service is, as always, friendly and the wine list is excellent. they handle the covid requirements well, making sure that everyone does as they should with mask and sanitiser. has to be done! the views outside the restaurant are spectacular, matching the food and the atmosphere inside. hopefully, i'll make it back there again.

Booked in for Dinner as had been recommended this place by a local. I booked a week in advance for a Thursday night and could only get the early sitting so its a popular place and rightly so. Its a set menu €65 pp but worth every penny for a special occasion. The selection and quality of the food is top notch. The setting is spectacular with amazing views. Inside is decorated beautifully. Our table looked out on a beautiful walled garden where some guests were having pre dinner drinks in the sun. Although they have had to make changes due to social distancing it is not apparent to someone who has not visited before and altlhough well distanced from other guests it still feels cosy and intimate. As its also a wedding venue they have a marque attached to the premises which is now used as a waiting area pre dinner. It is so well decorated you don't even realise you are in a marque its more like a large conservatory with comfortable chairs and sofas to relax on while browsing the menu. We stayed in nearby Bantry which is only 12km away, however we were charged €20 e/w by the taxi driver which seemed fairly steep but as we wanted to have a bottle of wine with our meal we had no option. There are only four rooms for guests that wish to stay so it was booked out but without a doubt we will return at another time and hopefully get to stay as its a real hidden gem.

Blairscove is such a beautiful restaurant.The staff were fantastic and the service was so excellent. It's the best experience I have had in restaurant since covid. The starters is a buffet and the chef goes each item with you.There was an excellent selection. I had the scallops for my mains and himself had the beef, both dishes were cooked to perfection. Then desert is a buffet and again there was a great selection to suit everyone. We weren't drinking alcohol and the non alcoholic range of drinks was fab,I particularly loved the spiced mule. I can't wait to come back next year.

The food was amazing. We came for a wedding and had the best experience. The lamb was amazing, the appetizer buffet was delicious, and desert was indescribable. The food could only be matched but the beautiful setting and gorgeous stone building the restaurant resides in. Finally staff was more than happy to cater to our friends with gluten and dietary restrictions, not batting an eye or hesitating to make sure their food was safe and equally delicious. They even have a vegan chef that was happy to make a dessert plate for a lactose intolerant friend.

It was just excellent from start to finish. The food was very very good. Every course attempted to delight and surprise the diner; superbly cooked and a feast of flavour and culinary skill. Service was attentive, competent, at times kind and always generous with huge attention to detail. It is a just an unmissable experience.

On a summers evening there is nowhere better than Blairs Cove. Overlooking Bantry bay the setting is stunning. Dinner was preceded by drinks in the garden courtyard. The no-alcohol cocktail was delicious. The starter table groaned with a fabulous selection of local produce. Our mains were local fish and scallops again delicious. The desert selection was far too tempting. Mint teas were accompanied by homemade fudge and biscotti. Absolute perfection.

We are returning guests like so many. We were so dying to bring our parents to experience the dining at BC as we fondly call Blairscove. They are still talking about the food. The food was sublime as always, each night topping the previous. The staff are so passionate about what they do and they showed great kindness and attention with our parents. We stayed for 3 lovely nights in The Piggery and The Smokehouse. It was superb as always with the delightful breakfast served to the apartment. Ann and Chris set a very welcoming and relaxing tone. They really have a lovely way with guests. The setting is spectacular and you leave wanting to come back !

Friends and I were fortunate to get a table for dinner on a recent visit to West Cork. I had previously booked during the pandemic, however it had not been confirmed. When I got in contact with Blairscove they didn’t have my booking details however kindly found us a table the Saturday evening. It was my first time dining indoors since last year and what a treat. The location overlooking the water, the beautiful gardens, pre dinner drinks room & dining room were all beautiful and very well appointed. The food was amazing-starter buffet, mains and selection of desserts. We chose the scallops, black sole and cod for our main courses and all three were beautiful. The wine and cocktails were excellent & the perfect start and end to the meal and accompaniment respectively. The service is 5 star. Every member of staff was friendly & helpful without being obtrusive. I cannot wait to return. Thank you for a wonderful and memorable experience for my 40th birthday celebration.

We visited Blair’s cove for an early evening meal with our two young children and my husbands parents. Gorgeous experience from start to finish - such a beautiful spot the staff were very attentive and accommodating. My father in law is a coeliac and had great choice. Food was to die for - adore the buffet style starters and desserts and mains were incredible. It was first time for us all to be out for a meal post lockdown so was great we felt so looked after and safe. Can’t wait to return - next time adults only so I can really relax and enjoy. Keep up the great work guys! One of our favourite destinations in the country.

Somehow it no longer works here. Maybe we just didn’t feel it but perhaps waiting 55 minutes before going for starters that were already laid out didn’t help. The meal just seemed a bit endless. The staff all around but we had to ask for pudding and ask for coffee. A return visit. Maybe we would have been better leaving it as a memory

Balirscove is one of those iconic places in West Cork and we have been coming here at least once a year for a long time. Ann, Chris and their great staff run a very professional country house & restaurant in a beautiful setting. Beautiful food served in an iconic setting. Long may it last.

If you find yourself in West Cork a visit to this 5 * restaurant is a must. The location is stunning and the welcome amazing. Luxury dining at a fraction of the cost. Enjoy a self served buffet style starter with oysters, king prawns, fresh salmon, smoked salmon and no lots more, a great way to try anything you want or haven’t before for fear of not liking it. The mains were superb and plentiful we had the sharing 20oz Tipperary steak with 3 different sauces. To finish a desert selection of beautiful homemade cakes, meringues, fresh fruits & ice creams again choose one or have a selection if you still have room. Anne the owner was so welcoming and made our visit memorable. Thank you so much will visit again soon!
