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.

I had a fabulous evening here recently with my fiancé and parents. It’s an amazing ‘special occasion’ restaurant. The food is beautiful, I love loved the buffet (starter and dessert) which is something I never thought I would say! Great cocktails also. Wish we lived closer!

The setting is so beautiful. The dinning room is perfect. The service is excellent. The food is out of this world...a meal you will always remember. Definitely I would recommend this dinning experience. It would be lovely if they opened for lunch as the menu is 3 courses so a long walk afterwards would help. Or if for dinner it was an a la carte menu. Having said that the food quality is outstanding and excellent value for money. The last time I ate here was over 30 years ago and the memory has stayed with me..Blairscove lived up to my high expectations. The bathroom is up steep stairs so I am not sure if there is an alternative if you are with some one with limited mobility. Arrive early so you can take time between courses and enjoy the evening. Blairscove is a very special place and deserves to continue doing exceptionally well.

A restaurant that invites 'feedback'...the emphasis being on the word 'feed'? Wow! Setting aside the humour that the thought inspires, may I say what a pleasure it was to dine at Blairs Cove last evening. I first visited there in 1985 and have been going almost every year since then.'Wonderful' is a word only partially useful to describe my thoughts in relation to the choice and quality of food, its preparation and presentation...the standard of service...and the welcoming nature of the surroundings that await diners at Blairs Cove. Yours is a dining experience not to be missed...truly gracious in every respect and enhanced by the melodious sounds that your pianist produces. Your patron Philippe may have his thoughts focused on retirement (I'll believe it when I see it) though clearly the concept he created is one that I know is continuing under the care of his charming daughter, son-in-law and Blairs Cove team. A family enterprise in the care of such an enterprising family! Perfect! Yours, Don & Susie Hall

A beautiful meal served by friendly staff in a most beautiful setting. I have no hesitation in recommending Blair’s Cove as a ‘must visit’ restaurant for anyone visiting West Cork. You won’t be disappointed be it a casual meal or a special occasion, this is for you.

Thank you so much for the lovely dinner! The food was absolutely incredible and the starter and dessert buffets are such a unique feature. Even better than the food was the service. Such kind and personal waitresses and our every need was well-attended to. We really liked the new menu with both starter and dessert buffet. We are already planning our next visit and next time we’d love to stay the night!

We had an amazing anniversary dinner last night. It was so nice being back for the first time since our wedding, and the food was even better than we’d remembered. Everyone was so friendly and kind - it felt like coming home. We will be back again soon!

Excellent meal and service. Wine was lovely. Dining room had lots of character and of course the setting of Blair's Cove is magical. Perhaps the system of booking and confirming a dining reservation could be simplified.
