We were made very welcome here when visiting Ireland from England/Wales. Stayed at the campsite near by, they arranged taxis for us back which was no problem at all. The food smelt lovely, shame we didn't get chance to try it.

Super helpful staff - seated us upstairs for the music but happily moved us downstairs to a quieter corner when we asked. Food was amazing, and there was a great buzz to the place.

Description
The Muskerry Arms was established as a small Public House in 1838 and is named after the Muskerry Tram Line, which serviced the village of Blarney up until the 1930's. The premises is owned by the O'Connor Family since 1984 and is personally managed by the O'Connor Family. The Muskerry Arms is a great family run business, offering 11 recently decorated superior bedrooms, live music, coverage of all sporting events on our big screens, great food & drink and always a warm welcome from our friendly staff. The Muskerry offers the ambience of a great Irish Pub with the olde world charme & character in the decor and the friendly reception you will recieve coming through our doors. So if you are just passing through or just back from visiting the Castle, Blarney Woollen Mills, it's all waiting for you here in the Muskerry Arms. After extensive renovations over time we now have an establishment rich in heritage and folklore which continues to be the focal point of Blarney.
