Once again we see a demonstration of deceptive advertising tricks being used to make this hotel appear warm and friendly but in reality it is nothing more than a hostel. The decor is tired, the furniture has seen better days and the carpet has more creases in it than the queens skirt. Aside the fact when we arrived, albeit at... More

As we entered the tiny reception we were met with painters painting over the dirt which looking back was definitely the case. Leading up to the room was a narrow seedy dark staircase with a dirty carpet. The room was bright with a nice view but that is about it. The green pillowcases had a smell of greasy hair from...

I chaperoned a school trip in April of 2013 (I had to select May 2014 because of Trip Advisor). Our first stop was two nights at the Glena House. The hotel was old, but the kids loved its authenticity. It was only a short walk to downtown Killarney where we enjoyed live music and jaunting cart rides. I think we... More

Friendly, prompt service, quiet location, short walk to shops, horse and carriage outside the door. Great time. Thank you! I'm planning a trip back next year. Such a beautiful place. Great for families, couples, friends, solos!

A group of us (four) reserved a room. This company has three properties near each other. Since we arrived during the slow season, two of the properties (the one we reserved) wasn't opened. They did have signs directing us to the check-in. We got our room and discovered no heat, plug-in's didn't work, and tv didn't work. After the front... More

The arrival began with my groups exhausted bodies stumbling through the smelly and old lobby. We had to carry our heavy bags up several flights of narrow stairs which were covered in a carpet so old that we couldn't even comprehend its original colour. Our room number was drawn with an orange marker on the door, not to mention the... More

Five of us stayed for one night, from start to finish it was a good experience, rang to increase the number from 4 to 5 two days before and the person on the other end of the phone was very helpful. Glena House is in a great location, smack bang in the middle of the INEC and Killarney town. Landed... More

I thought it best here to just state some facts first rather than opinions, it may help when making an assessment. 1. Friendly receptionist; 2. Carpet on stairs to rooms so old and worn it has gone black in places instead of its original (red) colour; 3. Hall lights in final corridor to the room were not on, consequently corridor... More

This was a great place to stay as it was so close to the town. The breakfast was really good, the staff were really friendly and the rooms were nice and clean. My only complaint is that the walls are quite thin so we could hear a lot of noise from the hallways. We were lucky it wasn't too noisy... More

I stayed here overnight with some friends. the place is a dump. I would not normally give a bad review, but I don't think anyone should be going here without knowing what it is like. The staff were very nice, but that is the only good thing I could say about it. the reception area and stairs were dirty and... More
