From the minute you get to the front door, Maureen makes you feel like family. She gives you time to get settled, time to enjoy your tea and treats and then time to enjoy talking to her. The house is spottless and comfortable and all on one floor. We totally enjoyed our stay at this lovely home.

Just spent 2 weeks in Ireland on the NW coast. Irish B&B hospitality was good throughout, but this one wins the overall prize, whether you consider the host's friendliness, the food, the room size, the shower. At other places there were often minor things that were not as good as we'd have liked, here everything was perfect.

Of all the B&B's we stayed in during our time in Ireland, this was undoubtedly the most beautifully decorated. The landscaping, too, is gorgeous. All rooms are on ground level, which we appreciate from a luggage-hauling perspective. It was a bit difficult to find without a house number to enter into the GPS. It is not in the heart of... More

Arrived late and immediately welcomed by Maureen. Made to feel welcome and provided a comfortable room with a lovely shower and TV, just what we needed after a long drive. Good selection for breakfast and really well kept premises, would recommend it to any weary traveller

We spent three nights at Glencairn House, Maureen is the most gracious host (and prepares the BEST Irish breakfast in all of Ireland!) Glencairn House is centrally located for touring the Inish Owen and Rosguill Peninsulas; as well as Glenveagh Park. Maureen was extremely helpful in recommending areas to visit and sites we should not miss. I high recommend this... More
