Without a sat nav difficult to negotiate Cork and find Carragaline but we managed at last..Adrian was very helpful with directions to Cobh, Wouldn't class the hotel as 4star luxury. bathroom very oldfashioned and having the shower over the bath very inconvenient.. Had the smallest serve of scrambled eggs imaginable. maybe the chooks weren't laying.

Dear Joan, Thank you choosing to stay at our guesthouse on your recent trip. We are however disappointed that you had a problem with the en suite facilities. We would happily have accommodated you in a room with walk in shower had that been preferable. Our standard serving for scrambled eggs is two large eggs but we have no problem... More

I stayed here in September 2013 as part of business travel and found the staff very friendly and the prices very competitive. The room layout and furniture however was very basic. I had to plug in an electric heater (provided in the room) to take the chill out of the bedroom and bathroom. The shower was powerful and there was... More

My husband has stayed here before but this was my first time. What a delightful place with owners to match. The breakfast was the best I have ever had and I was even tempted to eat a cooked breakfast. Plenty of fresh fruit and good quality grown-up cereal! Rooms are comfortable and supply everything you need, even a bottle of... More

This time a business visit with a UK colleague who was most impressed and complimentary. As she is a hardened traveler and hard to please this was high praise indeed. So I was delighted that I booked to stay at the Glenwood, so much better than big, impersonal hotels, huge beds and a great nights sleep. Free WiFi- that works!!... More

We stayed at this guest house in November and were thrilled with our stay! Excellent service, great food, clean and comfortable rooms and situated within walking distance to the local town- what more could you ask for?

We stayed recently in Glenwood House and we were hugely impressed with this delightful B&B. Excellent service, great room, quiet surroundings and delicious breakfast. Glenwood House provides brilliant value for money and we would not stay anywhere else while staying in the Cork area. Highly recommended !
