Blarney South (The)
The tin roof looms over a fusion of Irish and American flags and knick-knacks. Simple but sturdy bar stools and chairs keep patrons who have had one too many Guinness's from hitting the floor. The crowd, generally on the low side of 30, is just looking for a good time. Of course the big boys of Irish beers are on tap: Harp, Guinness and Bass. Hearty Irish and American grub is on the menu. Corned beef and cabbage and Shepard's Pie are joined by cheeseburgers and New York Strips.
Unfortunately the original owner Aimen, no longer owns it...It's really gone down hill...The place is dingy, dirty, the kitchen looks even worse, and the food is mediocre at best and lacks any time of charm you would expect. with all the irish pubs open on south street...This should be the last choice, actually make it your last choice in the city, trust me you aren;t missing anything. The good news is he opened a truly authentic restaurant right down the street called Irish times
New Years Eve 2004, we didn't know what we were going to do, we had dinner on South Street and walked for awhile. It was warm, so you could see inside all the bars, because the doors were open. We passed by almost every one, and stopped right outside the blarney, to decide if we really wanted to stay out the rest of the night. We looked inside and 2 people were just leaving the end of the bar( that was about 6:30. We figured we give it a try. We were greeted by Bucky, usually the chef, but tonight he was working the door. He had a great sense of humor and loves checking out the women. Not long after Eamonn the owner joined us. ( Real nice guy) The bartender Jamie( a guy) was great. He made a great martini and kept our drinks filled all night. We will definately go back with a crowd of our friends for a fun night out. This is a place you can enjoy yourself and not worry about any fights breaking out. Oh don't let me forget to add that they have a great selection of drinks.
