It is a family-friendly place, where you can forget your stressfull everyday life. Only a small disatvantage ist the fact that the kitchen is not well equipped, if you want to prepare proper meals.

Houses well equipped could do with a cheese grater. The only fault was only one of the showers had good water flow and shower heads the others were poor. Even with this minor fault I would stay there again and recommend it to other people wishing to visit the area without hesitation

We have stayed in many and I can honestly say, Blarney Cottage was one of the best! Brian and Anne provided us with treats and all the things we needed to spend a lovely week in Cork. The pictures don't do this place justice. The views are amazing! The Gaol and main street; shopping, dining, pubs are walking distance or a cheap taxi fare away. We honestly, didn't want to leave. We're already saying, "if we come back to Ireland, we're spending the whole trip at Blarney Castle!" Thank you Brian and Anne for making this dream vacation even more memorable.
