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 had been looking forward to dinner in Blairs Cove for some time. We knew it would be good but it passed our expectations. It was truly amazing and a wonderful experience. So glad we got there before the Covid lockdown last night!

Absolutely outstanding!! I have been wanting to visit here since seeing a segment years ago on Nationwide!! From start to finish, it was amazing. The staff are so professional, friendly and informed of dietary restrictions. I am celiac and had so much choice, which is a rare thing!! The range of non alcoholic drinks was very impressive and had one of the tastiest non alcoholic wines which again is another rare thing!!! 😁 The buffet starter was amazing,everything was delicious. I had the steak, which was cooked to absolute perfection. If it was appropriate I would have licked the plate 🤣 I really could not fault Blairscove in anyway, the whole experience was just fantastic. Will definitely be returning. Thank you for one of the nicest meals ever!

We went as a treat for our wedding anniversary. It was our Sixth visit in 3 years. The perfect place for a special occasion. My wife had the scallops for her main course, which was excellent. I had the breast of duck which I found disappointing. The starters and sweets were the usual high standard. Our House recommended wine, although on rhe expensive side was a good choice. We will be back. The waiting staff were first class and very pleasant.

We had a wonderful evening celebrating our anniversary. The Covid restrictions were carried out to the letter. This did not take away from our dining experience whatsoever. As usual we had an exquisite meal with excellent choice from starter Buffett . Our voice of main course was superb of monkfish and black sole. We had a choice also of wonderful desserts. The staff are so very friendly and make the experience So much more enjoyable.

We had an absolutely wonderful evening at Blairscove. A unique and surprising bit of heaven in West Cork, highly recommended to all wanting an intimate, special experience with family and/or friends. The grounds were gorgeous, the food was excellent, the staff was friendly, and the memories will last a lifetime.
