“Perfect taste of Ireland.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Our family of five were here in February 2014. Sean and Monica pulled out all the stops to make our holiday perfect. We were in for a real treat when Sean gave us an Irish History talk and how it related to the cottage. We were captivated by Sean's extensive knowledge. Sean then demonstrated making Irish coffee, which we thoroughly enjoyed. Monica made us Traditional Irish Stew, which on a cold evening was just perfect! Monica's baking skills are excellent and when we were offered an afternoon tea, we jumped at the chance to sample more exquisite baking. Definitely would recommend the afternoon tea! Monica also kindly made up a picnic for one of our outings. On a cold February afternoon, was very welcoming.
Their hospitality was exceptional and they were very helpful in recommending places to visit.
I would like to recommend The Village Inn, the village of Broadford's local pub. Pauline the landlady was very welcoming and they serve a good Guinness too!
As for the cottage and surrounding area, it was simply perfect. The cottage is traditional in style but has all the mod cons. Comfortably sleeps 5 persons. We had many memories of warming up with the stove, log burning fire. If you are looking for the real traditional Ireland, than this place is perfect. You are within driving distance to many beautiful places, such as Blarney Castle, The Ring of Kerry, Dingle Peninsula and Cork and Limerick, to name a few. It's a fantastic place to explore the many sites that Ireland has to offer.
I would definitely recommend staying here and I'm hoping to return later this year.

“Excellent hosts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Thanks again Monica and Seán for your hospitality. We stayed over Christmas and were spoilt with goodies like home-made Christmas pudding and chocolates. Very convenient location for getting to know the south-west of Ireland. The house itself has a wonderful Irish charm about it and if walls could talk, there would certainly be a tale or two to tell. We will definitely be recommending you further.

“Glenview Lodge Has It All”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We stayed at Glenview Lodge twice: in June 2011 and December 2013. Thus, we experienced days around the summer solistice when it remains light till 11:00 pm, and winter days when the sun didn't rise much above the horizon and disappeared altogether at about 4:00. We are happy to say that Glenview Lodge is the perfect venue, be it deep winter or high summer (and I expect at all times in between). Our young children loved roaming the nearby hills and fields during the endless summer evenings and we all enjoyed nesting around the peat fire when the winter wind whistled down Gleann na gCapall from Knocktoosh.

The property itself is exactly as advertised: a traditional Munster farmhouse (it has been in the family since the 1680s), tastefully modernized to meet 21st century expectations of comfort. The house is cosy and snug in December, bright and airy in June. The kitchen is fully equipped for a self-catering family holiday -- our kids were up every morning to help cook breakfast, something that doesn't happen much at home! Amenities include two bathrooms (plus a downstairs toilet), central heating, dishwasher, and a washer and dryer. The farm outbuildings have been preserved faithfully, though they are not now in use. In summer, the garden and orchard are delightful. The hilltop driveway offers spectacular views down Gleann na gCapall ("Glen of the Horse") and over the West Limerick hills.

The location cannot be beaten -- perfectly quiet and off the beaten track but within 10 miles of the N20 (Limerick-Cork) and N21 (Limerick-Kerry) highways. There are many local walking trails and sites of historical interest, and most parts of Counties Limerick, Cork and Kerry are within an hour's drive. There are a few pubs and small shops in Broadford village and an excellent supermarket (Meaney's Centra) in nearby Dromcollogher.

Finally, a word about Sean and Monica. They are the perfect hosts. They overlook no detail toward making you comfortable (our "welcome package" in late December included delicious, home-made traditional Christmas cake). They are discreetly on hand if needed, but otherwise do not intrude on your stay. The tasteful furnishings and spotless cleanliness of the farmhouse reflect their ethos. We are very happy to recommend Glenview Lodge for your vacation too.

“Home away from home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Sean and Monica were the best hosts you could ask for! Extremely accommodating, they went the extra mile to make sure our stay in Ireland was authentic and enjoyable. The quaint cottage is very clean, comfortable and homey. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. We were particularly impressed with the view from the drive up to the house. It is breathtaking. An amazing start to our trip! Broadford gives you the feel of what it's really like to live in Ireland and puts you in a good central location to drive to many of southwest Ireland's sites- within and hour or two away. We were very pleased with our choice and you will not be dissapointed!

“A little bit of Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Glenview Lodge is a wonderful place to stay. My husband, myself and our teenage daughter stayed here in August for one week. It is set in a beautiful, peaceful area. It was lovely to get up in the morning, have breakfast on the patio and take in the scenery in the peace and quiet of the lovely garden. It was easy to get out and about from here, as we travelled fairly long distances each day. It was a lovely place to come back to, and very cosy. It is within easy reach of supermarkets and all amenities, but far enough out to leave the shops behind if you wish to. There was a table tennis table in the barn, which we thought was an added bonus, especially if you have children. Monica and Sean were lovely. If we needed help with anything at all they were always happy to help. The cottage is well equipped, clean and very pretty. We would definitely stay here again the next time we visit Ireland.

“Holiday Haven with peaceful panoramic views.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

This peaceful and beautiful location suited our requirements perfectly. Comfortable,clean and tidy with all essentials at hand, a home from home, to help us relax and just soak in the beauty of our surroundings. Sean and Monica did everything they could to make us feel welcome and get the most of our time without being intrusive in any way, on hand if and when needed with friendly and helpful advice and information. We are particularly grateful for their help around sorting contact numbers for us to save us valuable time on our short stay. We will be going back and recommend Glenview Lodge to anyone visiting this area.

“very nice lodge - excellent location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We had a wonderful week, taking turns resting at the lodge on the hill and visiting some of the wonderful sites in southern Ireland.
We greatly recommend Glenview Lodge as the perfect place, both for the quiet and lovely surroundings and for the very good central location for visiting.
The lodge itself is very cosy and comfortable, well equipped and Monica and Sean are great hosts.
Highly recommended ...
