Fodor's Review

Surrounded by woods a five minutes' drive from Blarney, Blair's Inn—noted for its exuberant window-box displays—is the perfect retreat from Blarney's tour-bus crowds. This is a real "local," run by genial owner-hosts and their sons. The bar serves a range of local craft beers and bottled beers. You can dine in the bar or the quieter wood-paneled restaurant. In summer enjoy the beer garden; in winter, warm yourself by a wood fire. Freshly prepared local produce is served in generous portions all day: best bets include Irish stew (lamb, carrots, and potatoes), the house special—hot corned beef with parsley sauce—and a memorable gratin of prawns, crab, and salmon, served piping hot. There's live entertainment every Monday at 9 pm from May to October.
