Great B&B in the very small town if Glin on the River Shannon. Quiet and restful with warm and comfortable rooms and a freshly cooked breakfast of your choice in the morning. The hosts are very helpful with many suggestions on what to see and do. Not too many places to eat locally and travel to eat dinner is essential.... More

Wonderful place to stay and very 'upmarket' for the price, in comparison to many others we stayed in during our motorbike tour of Ireland! Lovely comfortable, clean room & fantastic friendly hosts who couldn't do enough for us, even down to providing the wine glasses for our evening glass of wine outside in the garden! Very peaceful & restful after... More

Howdy, my wife and I stayed her as part of our Ireland tour on our honeymoon a few weeks ago! We loved staying here in Glin. The host was very kind and the house was beautiful! You couldn't see the water, but the property itself was very calming and it was nice to rest there and enjoy the scenery. The... More

Siobhan is a gentle, refined and hard-working lady who is always there to help her clients. Thanks to her every day we had a wonderful breakfast, the room... More

We couldn't praise this B & B highly enough. What a gorgeous house, wonderful setting and in Siobhan a chatty, friendly owner with a wealth of fascinating knowledge on the local area and Barker House itself. We stayed for 2 nights and would have liked longer, the stay was so peaceful. Breakfast was great, the bedroom spacious and comfortable, amazing... More

We were travelling Ireland and had chose not to base ourselves in one place, this B&B was great, the room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast (full English!) set you up for the day. The owner, Siobhan Moloney, was very friendly and helpful. I recommend this B&B to anyone visiting the area. A general tip is to ask about... More

We stayed two nights and everything was very good. We've only given a 4 score for the rooms as it had everything it should but was small although there were bigger rooms. We've also given 4 for location as there's only one place to eat out which is a couple of miles away (Kirbys) and serves very average pub grub.
