I stayed here while on a week long yoga training course. It was just the place I needed. Beautiful quiet rooms, comfy bed, powerful shower and a fabulous freshly cooked breakfast each morning. Oh and wifi in the rooms! Can't forget that. I was very satisfied with my room. The highlight was the breakfast each morning. Home made bread, home... More

I work away from home a lot and was so lucky to find this fantastic Guest House. I spent 5 months Monday to Friday every week. The rooms were spotless and very quiet The owners were very friendly and nothing was too much for them. If anyone is in the area and looking for somewhere to stay don’t look any... More

If you are staying in Carrigaline or even near Cork and don't stay at Glenwood House, you are simply cheating yourself. The proprietor Adrien is the kindest, most helpful and accommodating man I've ever met. My friend and I were genuinely sad to be leaving at the end of the week, and I'm certain we will be back. A few... More

A group of 15 of us stayed for 2 nights at the Guesthouse and were very well taken care of. The owners are friendly, helpful and couldn't do enough for us. The location is central and we were able to walk to our venues. The rooms were clean and well thought out. The food was delicious. All in all a... More

We (a group of singing girls) spent an amazing weeked at this amazing Guesthouse. The proprietors couldn't do enough for us. Bedrooms were meticulous, breakfast was sublime (sorry for all the superlatives!) but it's all true. Would really like to go back again soon.

I was one of a group of 15 who stayed for 4 nights at the end of September for All Ireland Golf Finals and was treated like one of the family. Adrian and Noelle were excellent hosts and couldn't have been more accommodating if they'd tried. The Guesthouse is in a quiet area so no fear of being disturbed by... More

Your hosts at Glenwood could not be nicer or more welcoming and the accommodation was very high quality. Hotel caliber room with B&B style friendliness. Massive bed too and I had a great nights sleep. Carrigaline is a great location; I recommend the walking/bike path to Crosshaven - a scenic 7km along the water.
