“Favorite of all B&Bs - Charming!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

All we dreamed of for our Irish B&B!
Charming & helpful hosts, large & comfortable bed/bathroom, lovely common rooms, delicious & filling breakfasts, beautiful & green grounds/babbling brook. You will never want to leave!
Each day, Conor helped us plan our adventures which were wonderful. But, we also loved returning each night!
Our family of four had a large room (seemed more like 2 rooms open to each other), a double bed plus 2 twins... very spacious and the largest bathroom we've seen in Ireland!
Would love to return!

We had booked this country house for one night but the minute we arrived, we knew we wanted to stay longer - so we did! Conor welcomed us with warmth and plenty of first-hand local info, which proved invaluable. Our room was wonderful-spacious comfortable and very well equipped. We had a wonderful view over the rear lawns to the stream running through this beautiful country estate just outside Killarney, even a deer came to visit. It is perfectly placed for sights around Kerry and the town itself is just lovely! The house offers everything you could need, including an honesty bar and free tea/coffee all day. Bridget serves a fantastic breakfast with so much choice. Socks the cat was a great addition! All up, a delightful house and couple make you feel very special..we will be back!

Room Tip: Room 2 is just lovely! Double aspect and very spacious.

Glean Fia country house is 2k's from Killarney Town Centre. Our room was comfortable, breakfast was ok. I prefer natural yoghurt rather the flavoured varieties. Toasted soda bread would have been better than the white toast served.

The communal rooms especially the conservatory are very nice. The owners offer an honour system for wine, beer, spirits and soft drinks which was a nice touch. We stayed 3 nights and it was a good base to get to all the sights we were visiting during the day. While we were there, there was a number of others Aussies staying there.

Ours visit was a short notice online booking for two nights which turned into three. No need for a booking agency either, just visit http://www.gleannfia.com/index.htm and hosts Conor and Bridget were good to their word and made our stay in Ireland most memorable.
Upon our welcome to Gleann Fia Country House and learning we only had a week to tour the Western Coastal areas of Ireland with no specific plans, Conor took a keen interest in assisting us with an itinerary. His suggestions, together with his collection of maps and information, went a long way to getting the most out of our time in County Kerry as well as the remaining time spent in the area of the Cliffs of Moher and Aran Islands.
The house is grand and spacious and set back from a quiet country road on several acres of well groomed grounds complete with a clear running river and yes Deer are visible too! The conservatory areas provided space to relax and enjoy a beverage and meet other guests or enjoy reading from the expansive library of books available.
Our room was more than adequate for two with one double room and adjoining room with two singles. The bed and rooms were comfortable and provided sufficient storage for an extended stay. Would not expect issues with cleanliness and the bath/shower were easy to operate with excellent hot and cold water flow. Breakfast was substantial with an excelent continental buffet selection of cereals, fruit, breads etc. that could be expanded to include Eggs, Bacon and Toast served to order.
If you are in need of a base in County Kerry with a country setting or a night or two within a mile or so of Killarney I am sure you will not be disappointed and will find it good value for the services and amenities provided.
Thank you Bridget and Conor!

Just back from spending 4 nights in this lovely country house. The room was nice and clean and the cat 'Socks' was extremely friendly. After it came to Bridget's attention that I am a vegetarian she made a great effort to provide me with a lovely veggie breakfast every morning. Bridget is a lovely, caring & sincere hostess and I just wanted to say a big thank you to Bridget!

We stayed at Gleann Fia for 3 nights and during that time found the accomdation to be excellent. The property of 5 acres was beautiful and tranquil. Both Connor and Bridget were found to be friendly and informative hosts and the breakfasts were generous and tasy including a lot of Bridget's delicious home made jams and breads.If we were ever to return to Killarney we would definitely stay at Glean Fia again.

Dear Richard F.

Thank you for this very positive review of your recent stay with us. Spending 3 nights in one establishment you get to know and see almost everything about it, and for us your opinion is more valued.

We hope that you enjoyed the remainder of your visit to Ireland and Europe and had a safe trip home.

If we can do anything for you from this part of the world please let us know and we certainly will try.

With every good wish for the coming years.

Upon arrival Connor was very helpful in helping us book an extra night at our next stop in Doolin. He called and made all the arrangements for us. What a nice way to start our stay. About a mile from downtown Killarney this quiet and beautiful B&B has alot to offer. The breakfasts were great and Bridget was a first class host. We also bought 3 jars of her homemade delicious raspberry jam
which she bubble wrapped for us to bring home. Highly recommend.
