The 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.
Blairscove is much loved by its patrons who come time and time again.....
‘Lofty, stone-walled and black-beamed, the restaurant has great character, with a magnificent chandelier as the central feature, and impressive gilt-framed family portraits on the walls.Together with Sabine's brother Ronald Klotzer, who is head chef, the De Meys offer the wonderful food and service that this stylishly atmospheric restaurant is known for: their unique table d’hote dinner begins with the renowned buffet starter display, which is followed by a wide choice of meat and fish dishes simply cooked on the wood-fired grill.
Local cheeses are still offered, of course, and a meal here always ends on a high note, with the famous dessert selection - formerly displayed on the grand piano, these sweet temptations are now laid out on a sideboard in the conservatory, allowing diners to linger more discreetly over those difficult choices... ‘
