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.

Couldn’t have felt safer during current Covid situation. Staff were amazing. Made us feel really comfortable. The buffet starter and dessert felt no different in fact it was nearly nicer. Loved having pre dinner drink in marquee. Great view and airy. Blairscove is our special place and we don’t get there enough! Our experience this time was just as wonderful as previous visits.

I visited with five other guests who had not been to Blairscove previously, they were blown away! We will most definitely be back in the near future. Everything from the food, to the service, to the atmosphere was spectacular. It was also very reassuring to see all the measures in place for the "new normal"...a superb job without affecting a wonderful experience.

It was lovely to be back at Blairscove again after a long hiatus. Food and service top drawer as ever and while the atmosphere was not quite as buzzy as we're used to, it was not at all bad in these social distancing times. Well done to all.

Blairscove restaurant is in an idyllic setting. The premises is very tastefully decorated. The staff were friendly and helpful without being intrusive. The food was delicious and our chosen wine was excellent. The restaurant website was helpful and instrumental in choosing to book a table there.

Excellent evening, as always. Very impressed with how the staff has adjusted to post-Covid requirements. The elegance of the restaurant has been retained in a suitably safe environment. My understanding is that there is 1 price for the 3-course meal. There used to be a 2-course option. Will that come back?

We had a very high quality meal with excellent service. The weather on the night was wet and windy which resulted in the reception area being slightly cooler than expected.

Thank you for a great evening on 2/07/20. The attention to detail was amazing particularly under the circumstances. Staff were very friendly and welcoming while baring in mind social distancing. One menu per table but easy access to menu using mobile phone. Food was the usual high standard.
