The Glencar Hotel is in a remote, beautiful location. The building has seen better days -- the restaurant and downstairs generally could do with a big overhaul -- but the prices for the simple but pleasantly decorated rooms reflect this. The hosts are very friendly, and provide excellent homecooked meals in the evening as well as a full breakfast which is included in the price of the room. I enjoyed my stay and would recommend the Glencar Hotel to anyone interested in a stay in the wilds of Kerry.
