Located only five minutes from Blarney on the R579, with it's whitewashed walls and abundance of hanging baskets, Blairs Inn looks as pretty as a picture. Occupying a secluded, riverside setting in the heart of the country, this inviting hostelry is an outstanding example of an authentic traditional family run pub.
Your hosts are The Blairs, a warm and friendly family who extend a sincere welcome to newcomers and regulars alike. In Winter, real coal fires flicker on the wooden interior of the lounge bars and candlelit Snug and Pantry restaurant. In Summer, Blairs is renowned for its spectacular floral displays and patio and gardens and trout can be seen to "rise" in the Owennageara, the Sheep River, which bounds the garden.
Interesting combinations are the distinctive style of their menus. Quality Kenmare Seafood and Cork farm produce provide the foundations of their much talked about food that is enjoyed in the lounge, bar and restaurant. Weather permitting; you may dine outside into the peaceful garden bounded by the Owenageara, the Sheep River, where in summer trout can be seen to rise. Anyone visiting for the first time will understand why Blairs Inn has been showered with awards and rave reviews
