Ate in the Muskerry Arms on the last night of a short break in Blarney. Located smack bang in the centre of town, we were greeted by a smiling, pleasant and polite staff. The restaurant was very inviting, with candles lit, music, and quiet conversation. I ordered seafood chowder which was beautiful, very creamy with lovely chunky bits! My fiance had duck spring rolls which were light and crispy, very tasty. The main course of steak was beautifully cooked, exactly as we wanted it! We both commented that the chef definitely knew what he was doing. Three courses for two people, coffee, three soft drinks and a half bottle of wine came to €72. A very enjoyable meal in a lovely setting, I would definitely reccommend it to anyone heading to Blarney.

Down in Blarney for a few days hols and called in to The Muskerry Arms. Very friendly pub/ restaurant. We were a party of four and all the dishes were really good from the Big bacon burger to the pasta dishes - nothing left. We also ordered two extra sides of chips and the were gone in no time !! Service was excellent. We had two glasses of wine and a total of six soft drinks on the bill as well and it all came to €92. really good value. try this place whenever in Blarney

Lovely varied menu & very reasonable. We just had a quick bite - chowder which was great & the locally sourced herb sausages. Both nicely presented and very good value for money. Will definately be back.

Had the pleasure of eating in The Muskerry Arms and will definately be back. We had enjoyed bar food there on a couple of occasions in the past few years but didn't realise they had a restaurant upstairs. As it was early evening we were lucky enough to catch the end of the early bird menu which was incredible value for three courses, we both ate and enjoyed a drink for less than 50 euro, and there are few enough places you can do that in anymore. The staff were lovely and seemed really to care about whether you were enjoying your meal or not. There was a lovely atmosphere and a good mix of what looked like locals and tourists. We're looking forward to returning and I have a feeling that we'll be remembered, as that's the kind of place it seems to be.

I used to eat here often. Unfortunately the food can never be guaranteed to be the same quality for every visit. I have eaten here on a number of occasions. I have complained perhaps 3 times. After my first complaint the staff vastly improved on attitude and service and have remained that way ever since. I complained about the steak and chips recently and got an extremely bad attitude from the Manager. I was told basically by the chef that the steak which was tough and over cooked it just sometimes happens and some of the chips were soggy and some were crispy. We were offered desserts but we don't eat desserts so whats the point of that. We paid 77 euro for food well under par it just simply wasn't good enough. Anyway the manager told us that we should take our taste buds somewhere else. They upped the prices recently probably for the tourists got new menus with the same food on it and now we are paying for the new menus. All I can say is the chef has no pride in his cooking and the Manager could do with going on a course on Customer care. And stop over charging your tourists and regular locals.

Ate there twice in the last 2 months or so, once solo and once in a group. Surprisingly good food, with the Asian items being the best choice. Singapore noodles very good, properly seasoned and with real ingredients. Well worth a visit, an ambitious menu by comparison with other similar places. Recommended.

4 of us went on New Years Eve, wonderful atmosphere, lovely pianist playing in the background, and the food was lovely. We were pleasantly surprised. Very good choice on menu, something to suit all tastes. Staff were excellent
