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 book this restaurant every time we visit Danmanus Bay. The quality of food and service is consistently outstanding. Well trained staff have been working there for many years and know how to make guests feel welcome. The atmosphere is cosy and elegant. A real treat!

Blair’s Cove is one of our favorite restaurants anywhere. We spend the summer in Ireland and always make plans to eat here several times if possible. Ann and Woody, the daughter and son-in-law of the original creators of BC, are doing a fabulous job keeping the traditions we have come to expect and at the same time bringing their youth and vitality to this wonderful place. The natural beauty of West Cork surrounds Blair’s Cove a great treasure.

Absolutely outstanding across the board. Would make 2 recommendations; 1. Modernise the TV. 2. Lighter tog Duvet or a flat sheet to facilitate warmer weather. Many thanks! We will return. Geraldine

As a family we have been to Blairs Cove over the years. It was such a thrill to now return from London with one of my own children to share in the magic of one of the best restaurants in Ireland. We had the most wonderful night. Above all I would like to say the service was superb. Thank you all for the most perfect all rounded culinary experience.

This place is a credit to those who run it. Every aspect of this restaurant is amazing, The staff are attentive and professional. The food is top class and excellent value for money. You will be hard pressed to eat all that is offered. Piano music in the background while watching the sunset over Dunmanus Bay, adds to the experience. We can't wait to return.

Food was excellent and location is stunning particularly if you get a beautiful sunset like we did. The service was great a lot of the staff very young and learning but that's fine. I would recommend having facial piercings including tongue studs out for service it just doesn't look very clean combined with tattoos it's a little off putting, that's just a personal opinion.

We have been dining in Blairs for over 25 years and, while every meal has been memorable, last night’s was, without a doubt, the most outstanding of all. The standard is getting higher and higher.
