Blairs Cove

All the best places to eat, shop and stay in Ireland. A local guide to local places.

There is housekeeping. There is great housekeeping. And then there is Blairs Cove House housekeeping.
In Blairs Cove, you need a pair of Wayfarers to protect your eyes from the gleam and the glow and the spit and polish of the housekeeping. This is a house, from restaurant to rooms, that is so well loved-up that you just can’t help but be bowled over by it, and the hospitality from Ann and Woody just drives home the sense of blissful comfort.
The dining room may well be the most beautiful room in which to eat in the entire country of Ireland and, happily, the cooking is top notch – there were no fewer than 24 starters on the buffet table on our most recent visit, and the live fore meat cookery is particularly fine. Breakfast, served in your room, is a treat for the ages. You will not want to leave Blairs Cove House.
