A friendly welcome, and although Reception did not seem aware that we had pre-booked a ‘special pitch’ (serviced), they were helpful and able to offer us a choice of two. The toilet block was clean, with free showers. WiFi also free, but unfortunately wouldn’t connect at our pitch. We were only there for two nights and were glad we walked into town on the first afternoon when the weather was fine - the site is at the top of a hill and it feels like a very long walk back. If it’s a clear day, you can see Blarney Castle in the distance as you exit the site. Due to very wet and windy weather on our full day in Blarney, we didn’t get to experience the site at its best, but we did feel it was well-maintained. Although the site is a fair walk from the main amenities in Blarney, the ‘Stoneview’ restaurant is only about 100m from the site entrance. It is not the cheapest place to eat, but the food was really excellent, as was the service. We got to sit at a window with a view of Blarney Castle. The only little niggle was that when we arrived back from the restaurant, our neighbours were having a BBQ, and their guests’ two cars were both parked on (and filled) the small piece of grass that was actually our ‘living’ area (we didn’t have an awning out, or a vehicle on our pitch, other than the motorhome itself). It didn’t matter too much as we weren’t planning on sitting outside that evening. However it is worth being aware that pitch space can be a little limited on the site - especially for units that have both awning and vehicles.
