I recently visited New Ross to attend the Jfk 50 celebrations. I was so happy to book the Glenbarry in advance as the town was packed out for the event.
As soon as I arrived I knew we had found a splendid place to stay. Ger picked us up in the town as we had arrived by bus and he brought us back to the B&B. We were greeted in a friendly manner and the house has a calming and relaxed ambiance that makes you feel like you are miles away from home. The house itself is lavishly decorated and spotlessly clean.
Our room (sorry I can't remember the number) was on the ground floor and had a fabulous view. The room was beautifully decorated with new carpets, blinds and curtains. The bed was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. The attention to detail was splendid with even a fan heater on the ceiling for when you stepped out of the shower which was just another added luxury. The power shower was amazing and a real treat!
There was ample tea and coffee to be made in the room, a flat screen television and an iron and ironing board. The hairdryer was of top quality. In general the room was so comfortable and so relaxing. I felt as though we were staying in a 5 Star Hotel.
The breakfast was delicious with a wide variety of choice be it a wonderfully cooked Irish Breakfast or a more continental choice of fruit, breads and yoghurts.
Then after departing Glenbarry I was surprised to see Ger in the town, I was even more surprised when he handed me my watch. I had left it in the room and Ger had been looking around the town for me to give it back. If that is not 5 star service I don't know what is!
Everything about this B&B is wonderful, the location, the house, the rooms and the breakfast, but the hosts Margaret and Ger put the icing on the cake. They have done a wonderful job. I will be returning and would recommend for anyone to stay in Glenbarry B&B.
There is loads to do in New Ross with plenty of tourist attractions restaurants and pubs. Glenbarry is the perfect place to stay if you want to explore New Ross or just get away on a break. Don't miss out on the tranquil retreat!
