Returned after many years to Blairs Cove for dinner last week with friends. Food perfect in a gorgeous setting . Staff and management helpful & friendly . Easy to get to if staying in Bantry - €15 taxi each way . If staying anywhere near Durrus you MUST eat in Blairs Cove.

It is a proper West Cork experience. The staff are very friendly, the food wonderful.

All you order is the main course. They have the most amazing buffet for starts. You're brought up by a member of staff and personally walked through each dish, including oysters; yum.

The mains were delicious, sole, halibut and steak. All cooked perfectly.

Loved the experience. Amazing staff who
Obviously love what they do and were so welcoming.
We had a great evening and wonderful food. A good reason to get dressed up after a few days hiking. Wonderful place. Look forward to return.

From check in to the stunning accommodation, the gorgeous food at dinner, lovely staff, accomplished pianist, fabulous night's sleep, tasty b'fast. We are already planning our next visit.

If you haven't been here you've missed the best restaurant in Ireland. It's an annual tradition to meet here in July for a family dinner. This year my hubbie and I stayed over night in the onsite accommodation.
I knew from previous visits that the restaurant was second to none, but the accommodation too didn't disappoint.
Dinner started with cocktails in the bar, followed by starters from the buffet. I had the rack of lamb, others had steak or fish. Nothing to fault here. Desserts are something else, just listening to the waitress describe the selection on the buffet is a joy in itself.
The piano played, the restaurant was atmospheric and the staff were wonderful.
My gluten free requests were no problem.
The only difficulty I had was I didn't have enough space for the amazing breakfast served next morning in the privacy of your room.
This place is a once off experience, I can't recommend it enough.
