The facility is well located in central Blarney. While the house is relatively older and the bathroom was relatively small, the management and his family were very helpful and responsive. The owner and his family cared for several cats that were strays in the neighborhood. All the cats were kept outdoors, but the care and concern showed the kindness of the owner's disposition.

This was our first B&B on this vacation. The house was great and so was Tom! He tended to our every needs and loved hearing all of the stories. The one that the kids liked was he time on the fishing boat and how the Octopus went after him. Very memorable! Thank you!

Our stay was lovely. Tom and his son Tommy were very friendly hosts. We had great conversation, and got helpful tips about where to go and how to get around. Breakfast was one of the best we had. Walking distance to Blarney castle and pubs.
