“Charming and Spotless”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

We stayed a O'Driscoll's for one night and had some reservations following our previous B and B experience, but they were quickly laid to rest. Estelle was friendly and welcoming and provided us with a delicious tea upon arrival. She gave us excellent suggestions for dinner and for a walking route. Our room was bright, modern yet very charming, and spotlessly clean. There was minimal noise from adjacent rooms or from the street so we were able to leave our window open all night with only minor noise issues. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room and bathroom were well appointed. The breakfast was just delicious with many options to choose from. The sunroom was a nice spot to read during the evening (although not available after 10 pm) and the garden was very pretty. Glin is a quiet little town so a good break from nonstop sightseeing. One minor suggestion- a fan would be helpful for airflow since the room can get fairly warm due to having only one window.

Estelle was a very welcoming hostess, offering us coffee and cake on arrival. Lovely garden to sit in. However it was such a shame to see unnecessary signs dotted about in the room, including one in the bathroom regarding showering limits. There were extension cables running along the floor and a leaning shelf to hold the kettle, which were a cause for concern. We believe the guest lounge should be available at all times, however there was a sign saying it would be locked at 10pm. Such a shame as Estelle was lovely and the breakfast was beautiful.

Estelleo, Owner at O'Driscoll's Bed & Breakfast, responded to this review, August 1, 2013
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay & liked the breakfast & garden .
But I think you were a little unfair about the signs in the room , there is a non-smoking sign , a WiFi password sign & a Red Cross Defibillator no. :- for an emergency . A check-out time.
The Extention Cable is running along the skerting board & the shelf is not a danger.
I have had 2 inspections in the last 3 years from the Irish Tourist Board since I got my 4 stars & they did not find issue with the cable or the shelf or the signs.
The Guest lounge that you refer to is the Sun room at the back of the house overlooking the garden & as this is also a back door I like to make sure that it is secure every night.
If you said to me that you wanted to spend some time there in the late evening ,it would not have been a problem to me .
I hope you enjoyed your trip to Ireland.

This was my third stay at O'Driscoll's B&B, this time with my mum and my daughter and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. Estelle really is a wonderful host and honestly cannot be faulted. The house is lovely, the rooms are all wonderful and breakfast is perfect. Glin is a lovely, peaceful town but with plenty to offer; a choice of pubs, shops and places to eat. Thank you Estelle and Charlie.

Typically my wife and I look for a B&B on the outskirts of a town preferring the country atmosphere. On this occasion we happened upon O'Driscoll's B&B in the town of Glin and were especially happy to spend a wonderful time with Estelle and her dog Charlie in their 200 year old home. Estelle made us so welcome and offered us many suggestions for what to see and do for the trip ahead. We very much appreciated her assistance in securing for us a next evening's B&B location as our travels continued over a busy,long holiday week-end. She presents a warm, hospitable location to rest from travelling as well as great food and a beautiful back garden.

My husband & I stayed here in June 2013 during our recent trip to Ireland. We'd had a long drive & it was a cold, wet day. From the moment we walked in to the B&B, Estelle treated us wonderfully. We must have looked cold because she made us a cup of tea & gave us each a piece of her magnificent home made apple pie. The house is lovely, the room we stayed in was wonderful, the bed was so comfortable & breakfast was perfect. The total experience was fabulous. It was just like being home. I loved it so much, I didn't want to leave. We still talk about this place now that we are back home. Thank you Estelle.

We (family of 5) stayed with Estelle for 2 nights while exploring the nearby areas. She was a most gracious host, despite our late check-in the first night. Beds were comfortable, room was very clean, spacious enough for the 5 of us, and well-appointed. Breakfast was delicious, and Estelle even marked the Fourth of July holiday for us by having an American flag on our table! I would highly recommend this B&B in this lovely little town (with a friendly pub right next door!). We hope to return very soon!
