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 our dishes are prepared in-house.

For our efforts we have received two AA rosettes for culinary excellence for a number of years and are featured in all the leading guides.
