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.

Another wonderful evening in Blairscove. Bringing back so many memories of when we got married there last year. A truly magical place. Fine dining but very relaxed atmosphere with attentive and friendly staff. Beautiful food with the most incredible flavours. Thank you Ann, Woodie and staff

A very special place. Beautiful dining room with chandeliers, roaring fire, candles everywhere & a pianist accompanying a beautiful meal. Amazing starter buffet where the seafood is a highlight. Extensive main course menu, we opted for the sharing platter of rib of beef, it was cooked to perfection. With just enough room left we tackled the dessert buffet, delicious homemade treats. Can't wait to come again!

We had another lovely night at Blair's Cove. Our wine was selected by Woody, (the Luigi Bosca Malbec) a great choice! The impressive choice of starters did not disappoint, however I feel the waitress was a little afraid that we would over indulge as she watched carefully as we helped ourselves! We missed Amy from the starter buffet this time. The mains were DELICIOUS. The generous portion of duck breast was cooked to perfection. We're so sad that BC closes for the winter, but we look forward to seeing you all in March! Keep doing what you do!

Never EVER EVER disappointed with Blair's cove. We have been going there 24 years- first when Phillipe held the reigns. Now, we still come with our now adult children of 18 and 20 to the capable hands of Ann and Chris. Pleasant staff , unhurried and efficient service, food excellent. Adore it . Thank you so much.

We had a most enjoyable evening , food, wine and setting was most simply magnificent. The right background tone with beautiful piano playing . The friendliness of staff stood out , they took pride in what they were presenting and were genuine and sincere in answering questions. I have dined in Blair’s Cove on a number of occasions and will continue to do so. My only regret is I can’t do it more often . Then again that might soil the special treat that it is. Looking forward to my next visit.

Our only problem with Blairs Cove is that we can't get here often enough. We had yet another superb evening in Blairs Cove, it was wonderfully spooky for Halloween. Dinner was sublime. Our 4 year old came to dinner with us and was really well catered for as well. Thank you Mary Seery Kearney
