About Blairscove Restaurant

Blairscove Restaurant is located in the barn which completed the quadrangle of farm buildings serving the former manor house.

It is high like a church and the tall windows overlooking Dunmanus Bay were recesses through which the hay was pushed down to the animals from the loft above. Some say that about 250 years ago the building was part of fortifications complete with two watchtowers.

In October 1981, after extensive restoration works, the restaurant opened its doors. Right from the start we became known for the best of Irish meat grilled on a roaring fire in the dining room, an impressive display of ‘help yourself’ starters as well as a mouth-watering selection of desserts.

This has not changed in all the years except that the freshest of seafood has been added to the selection. We use local produce as much as possible and all of our dishes are prepared in-house.

We had a wonderful night in Blair’s Cove. The service was excellent and the food delicious. The only downside was having to leave, I could have stayed forever.

I hadn't been to Blairs Cove in about 10 years and it is still as amazing as ever. We brought our two toddlers with us and the staff were so accommodating and friendly. We could not have asked for better service and the food was divine. Cannot wait to go back - we won't wait as long the next time!

Blair's Cove is the best restaurant in Ireland. It's got it all: delicious food, great service and staff, beautiful setting. It is very good value for money given the quality. I wish I lived nearer this place.

We had a fantastic meal and the staff were really knowledgeable about what dishes were suitable or could be adapted for my coeliac husband.

We had a wonderful meal, fabulous food, great variety and atmosphere. Loved the buffet style starters and desserts. We had been here over thirty years ago and had very high expectations from that experience. We were not disappointed

We had a wonderful evening from start to finish. We felt very safe as the restaurant owners had really thought hard about Covid guidelines and had done everything to ensure a safe and comfortable dining experience.The food was absolutely delicious - only problem was I ate too much!!! The staff were delightful and so well trained. The pace of the service was perfect. I cannot recommend Blair's Cove highly enough if you want to enjoy a quality dining experience! Thank you!
