When I first stepped in this bar, I was with my boss and 2 managers to conduct an interview session for a position, interesting right? Yes, my boss always think of something special, even for the interview.

The Blarney History
Anyway, come back to the topic, after I went back home, I was trying to do some research thru’ internet but it’s quite disappointing as there are not much information can be found. However, according to my boss, the Blarney is actually an Irish pub which being named after the Blarney Stone and Blarney Castle, which is one of the famous attraction at Blarney town, Ireland.
There is a very interesting legend of this stone which is by kissing the Blarney Stone at Blarney Castle, it is claimed that one can receive the “Gift of the Gab” (eloquence, or skill at flattery or persuasion). The legend has several suggested roots, involving members of the MacCarthy dynasty – builders and original owners of Blarney Castle. You can read this for your reference: The Blarney Town

The house pours are quite cheap during the happy hour. If you not a alcohol lovers, there are also non alcohol drinks for you to choose.

I must admit that I’m not a Guinness Stout fans but the draught here is really smooth and good. Highly recommended!

Normally I will order their snacks menu instead of the main course as I personally felt that the snack items are better than the main dishes.

Last but not least, “ss time” (shock sendiri) 😉

If you want to have a cozy and high class environment with affordable price, this is your best choice to hang out or host a small event. This place is very crowded during weekday after working hour compare with weekend as most of their customers are office crowd. I think this is the main reason that they are closes on Sunday.
