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.
Wonderful eating experience, up there with anywhere we've enjoyed worldwide. Philip & Ann
Blairs Cove is suberb!!! Quality food and service every time. It is our go to location for special occasions and celebrations. They are managing to maintain a lovely calm atmosphere despite the new Covid 19 restrictions and it is still as amazing as ever.
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.
Beautiful food, beautiful evening :)
A choice of one hot starter would have been nice
Despite the current COVID restrictions the restaurant has maintained its high level of quality, standards and atmosphere.
Excellent implementation of the COVID requirements with a minimal impact on the overall experience. A delicious return to restaurant dining. A real treat.
Well done on a very nice experience, especially given the constraints!
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.
Lovely restaurant with great food and beautiful setting. Just book it and enjoy yourself
Excellence, as always. Operating with meaningful, customer-friendly, staff-safe protocols for Covid.
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?
Had an amazing experience in Blairscove stayed in The Piggery for two nights and loved it Everything from cleanliness to interaction with staff (all wearing face masks+visors) could not be faulted Look forward to visiting again
Felt very comfortable staying at Blairscove and eating in the restaurant during these Covid-19 times.
Service was superb. Covid protocols were reassuring without being annoying. The restaurant is now a haven of tranquility and joy. We have already made 3 more bookings for the upcoming weeks. Can’t wait!
Really lovely experience!
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.
Amazing experience from start to finish. Will be back!
Highly recommend this restaurant. A lovely treat for a relaxing evening with beautiful food and service.
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.
We dined in the restaurant on weds 1st and fri 3rd. Thoroughly enjoyed both meals for the quality of food and excellent friendly service. Will highly recommend to our friends!
We had the loveliest evening , thank you so much ! We felt so safe and your staff were amazing. Food was delicious as always!
Anne and Woody together with their staff are making a huge and successful effort keep the Blair’s Cove experience as good as ever despite the problems posed by Covid 19.
