Six of us spent an evening in The Square Table and it was absolutely lovely. Trish looked after us so well and the food was delicious. I highly recommend trying this restaurant if you are in Blarney.

This is a special place. Really great and unique dishes. Once you try them you will want to make them yourself and they will tell you how: but then you realize that these are special cooks. Not cheap but really worth it. Modern Irish cuisine...More

A lovely experience. Not at all expensive for the quality on offer. Lovely staff who obviously care a great deal about your food and your experience but they weren't fussy or in any way pretentious. We have returned since and will do so again.

This small restaurant is a class apart. The menu may be limited but the quality and presentation of the food is second to none and for average price. Trish and our waitress were very attentive and friendly. Service, food and value all 5 stars.

We have eaten in the square table as a couple and as a family. It is by far the best restaurant in Blarney, gourmet food in a relaxed environment. Excellent service, delicious food. Would highly recommend. We will definitely be back

At The Square Table the goal is to serve good quality, uncomplicated food that is locally sourced and served in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. Twin sisters, Martina and Tricia Cronin, choose their suppliers from among local, artisan, small businesses who are as passionate about food as they are. Inspired by watching their mother cook from an early age, these choices are very personal.
