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.

We loved this pub. The food, the conversations, and the pints are great! We enjoyed this place so much that we ate there both evenings during our visit to the Blarney area. The food is great. The entire staff is willing to take time to...talk and share their knowledge of the area with you (including the owners - Rich and Duncan). This was just what we were looking for and it set the bar high for other pubs. It was our kind of place! Thank you for the experience!More

Succulent roast pork with a delicious cider gravy and a generous helping of apple sauce washed down with a local craft cider on a warm summers afternoon in the shady garden beside the river at Blairs Inn Cloghroe - pure bliss. And to follow, good...coffee and a leisurely chat with elegant hostess Anne Blair. Class endures.More

A warm welcome on arrival and we were shown straight to our table. A very helpful waiter took our drinks order and provided menus. Food was excellent and was served with ample portions! We had the Whiskey Wings, Loin of Pork, Meatballs & a chicken...salad. The portion sizes were very generous so visit on an empty stomach! The roast potatoes were some of the best we have ever eaten. Good old fashioned country pub with a distinct Irish charm that delivers competent home style cooking. We will return.More

A friendly greeting as we arrived set the scene for a cozy dinner for our two families. Our drinks order was prompt and the food is simply the best in the area. From the crisp pork belly, to the mussel and monk fish zarzuella and...the wood fired pizzas, hats off to the chef. Our children had margarita pizzas, the thin crispy bases made the Italian way went down a treat. All in all excellent value for money and food that one foodie can rave about! Well done to the team at Blair Inn!More

The staff were friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was great.More

Great menu, everyone was raving about their meals. Well done on including high quality, locally sourced ingredients. It was a real treat, and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. At this stage, all that is allowed is outdoor dining, the space is ideal, plenty of...distance, great atmosphere with the pizza oven going and speakers dotted around. The booking process was simple and the staff are all excellent, they even sang us happy birthday.More

Amazing as always!!! 4 of us had the steak last night (Wednesday) absolutely unreal. Richard and staff are always so friendly and really make it an enjoyable evening out. Love calling in, if it’s just with the other half or a group of people we...always have a lovely evening. Highly recommend :-)More

I have been going to Blair’s for years and I can highly recommend it. The welcome from John and Ann is so warm and friendly. Richard has always looked after any our corporate guests to the highest standard. The fire and cosy set up makes...Blair’s as special as it is. The food is wow wow wow. We had a Christmas night out with 18 ladies and the menu was 5*****. Dunken is wonderful and you will be left with a taste of more. The corn beef and crab are my firm favorites. There’s always full and plenty. Blair’s has a wonderful outside area and a menu to suit all taste. During the summer they have mighty traditional music sessions. Fantastic to see to a family run business doing a magnificent job. Honestly go try the food and you won’t be disappointed. It’s a little gem of a place.More
