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.

The food never fails to impress. Restaurant staff are helpful and considerate. This is a family run business with the “personal touch”. Blairscove’s oysters are to die for.

Another great night at Blair's Cove Service expectations exceeded with positive engagement. Food/wine great. Desert selection was a little weak in choice this time ? Perhaps the time of night? Still a great choice and experience.

Just about perfect. As good as "Loam" in Galway (restaurant of the year 2019), although a different experience. More relaxed and with a great atmosphere with food to die for! Will most certainly be back.

The location is sublime and immaculately kept. The service is friendly and relaxed. The food is bountiful and excellent. The wine could perhaps have been chilled a little longer but to be fair I didn't raise this at the time and had I, I have no doubt it would have been addressed. All in all a wonderful meal and weekend. We look forward to returning.

Every thing was great as usual. The starter and desserts would make your heart melt and the steak cooked by the log fire is delicious. The staff are more than helpful and are so friendly.

Most enjoyable 'special occasion' meal with fabulously attentive service and an excellent choice of non alcoholic drink options.
