Buy Blarney Woollen Mills Hotel vouchers for deals on Hotel in Cork. Set just outside Cork, the town of Blarney is the crucible in which one of the oldest of Irish traditions was forged, the kissing of the Blarney Stone. This gesture is said to impart the ability to 'deceive without offending', translating into the wit and humour that Ireland is so well known for today. Step into the past, with some thoroughly modern comforts to boot, at the fantastic Blarney Woollen Mill Hotel. Enjoy a stay in this delightful hotel with a full Irish breakfast each morning, afternoon tea on one afternoon of your stay, and a late midday checkout. The Accommodation The 3* hotel was created by an old employee of the mill that used to occupy the space back in the 19th century, who oversaw its transformation into the quintessentially Irish hotel that lies there now. You'll be staying in a double or twin room, which offers an en suite, hair dryer, Wi-Fi, direct-dial telephone, and satellite television. Food As well as your hearty full Irish breakfast, you'll be treated to a sumptuous afternoon tea on one afternoon of your stay. Expect a service laden with sandwiches, scones, and cakes, accompanied by steaming pots of tea and coffee. After doing some shopping at the hotel's namesake store, take a four-minute walk to Blarney Castle, home of the Blarney Stone. Complete a ritual that millions of others have travelled to do, and ascend the battlements of the castle to plant a kiss on the ancient slab of limestone, and really demonstrate your passion for history. If more modern customs call, the city of Cork is a 19-minute drive away. Do some shopping in the covered English Market, the oldest of it's kind in Europe and a treat for the senses. Or, head to the Crawford Gallery, an artistic institution since its beginnings in 1884. Need to Know There is availability for all seven days of the week. Children under 3 stay for free of charge; those between 4 and 12 can stay for a surcharge per night. The Blarney Woollen Mill Hotel has a three-star rating from Failte Ireland.
