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.

My wife and I were recently at Blairscove House and although it was a short stay we had wonderful time. The De Mey family were gracious hosts, the service was impeccable and the food was delicious. I look forward to my next visit to WestCork at Blairscove House.

We been going to Blairs Cove for many years and it is a very special Restaurant where the attention to food and service is excellent and the room is full of atmosphere it rates as one of the best overall experiences you well get for a night out. As the menu is 3 courses you will need to be hungry as the the starter is a very extensive buffet as is the desert or cheese board, the main course has extensive choices of local fish or beef/lamb. We ll worth a visit in our opinion.

Excellent service, lovely cosy romantic atmosphere, very tasty buffet starter, good selection, couldn’t fault main course, hadn’t much room left for buffet dessert but everything was homemade and delicious. I would highly recommend staying overnight there, such a treat.
