Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 September 2016

Blairs Cove seems to be a special place to host a wedding & therefore the 4 apartments are often used as a B&B by family & guests, however we booked for 6 nights self catering & what a great place to use as a base for exploring West Cork.
We had taken the Coach House, such a stunning space. A thoughtful, tasteful conversion with a nice mix of modern & old furniture & art.
The apartment was well equipped , can't think of anything it didn't have. The WiFi was consistently good.
There is no doubt that everything is better when the sun shines as it did on 5 of our days & I was able to sit outside ,reading, in the late afternoon. There were several areas to choose from.
We did eat in the restaurant on one of our evenings & agree with many reviewers that it is a delightful experience & fully understand (& agree) why it is regarded as the best place to eat for many miles around. The dining room alone warrants special mention.
Only two small suggestions to make even better, 1.is to also have a sheet on the bed as the duvet was heavy & the weather was warm 2.The sofa is a bit hard to sit on , one or two evenings would be fine but a softer one would be better for longer stays..
All in all we loved Blairs Cove & felt the pricing was very good value .
The next generation of the family are now taking over & we wish Ann & Woody every success for the future

Room Tip: The Coach House has stunning views over Dunmanus Bay.

What a place. This was our 2nd visit, this time with a 3 month old. Anne and Woody and staff could not have been more accommodating. Dinner was as always to die for and the apartment was so tranquil and so well stocked with all the essentials it was such a nice experience. Nothing was a problem for the staff of this restaurant and hotel and all of them looked as though they love working there. Would totally recommend the restaurant for a total gastronomic experience. Starter buffet was exceptional and flavours and combinations exquisite. Thanks for a great stay and wonderful food.

A fantastic experience, from a great dinner with family to an a la carte breakfast delivered to our room/suite. The staff and owners couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming. The views are stunning. Blairs Cove House is highly recommended and a brilliant start, stop or midpoint on a trip to West Cork.

I hate to give Blairscove a good review because that could mean more people finding out about this wee gem and therefore making it more difficult for people like me to book a stay there. This was my third visit and it never fails to disappoint .It was superb the first time and continues to get even better [if that's possible ]. My Mum feels so relaxed there that we'd barely arrived when she was ensconced in a corner of the sofa,feet up and perusing the deaths in The Cork Examiner [ Yep,it's still The Cork Examiner for Corkonians and reading the death notices is a form of therapy perfected only in the Rebel County]. Food was glorious [only complaint on that score was the fact that I felt like a baby hippo from all the delights available. "Stand back from the trough" is only an option for those of steely determination in Blairscove ] If Heaven is anything is like Blairscove,,have no fear of death !
