“Lovely hosts and YUMMY breakfast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2010

Stayed at Glenribbeen in March 2010, wanted to get away for a weekend and what a gem! Peter and Els are the perfect hosts and their eco lodge is gorgeous, close to Lismore and has some lovely hens you can always have a chat with the next morning! It's these hens that provide the yummiest eggs for Els' special breakfast...do not leave here without trying! Ate in a lovely restaurant in Lismore called The Chop House and the owner drove us back to Glenribbeen after our meal, now that's service! Places like Glenribbeen provide a unique welcome that you can only get in a great Irish B+B and it's why I'm going to holiday at home this summer. Will definitely be back.

just returned from short stay at this magnificent B&B, room communal areas & breakfast area were all spotlessly clean. Breakfast was wonderful and the choice was great. I was in awe at the manner that these people run their B&B whilst all the time taking into consideration their carbon footprint and the planet. Will certeinly go back for some more tips and a relaxing break Thanks again

A clean, quiet, easy to find place near cultural activities. I explicitly enjoy the ecological way this B&B is run.

Thanks so much for taking the time to sign up to TripAdvisor and compliment us.
I am really delighted you enjoyed your stay and perhaps we'll see you again in Spring-Summer when the garden is is at it's best.

It's very important to me that you noted our eco-efforts in your review. It's nice to get the recognition - at the personal level.

I hope too you enjoyed the breakfast. It's something else we work hard at.

GEL&A is situated in a nice area. Lismore is nearby like the nicest areas as Dungarvin, Dunmore East and the Knockmealdown Mountain's. See the location as a base to discover the surrounding areas. And when coming "home" two very nice people will be there for you to, if you wish, cook. The "b" for breakfast has to be a capital B we can tell you.

Peter and Els provided a great welcome, friendly service, very tasty breakfast (go for the Glenribbeen Special!). They were delightful with the kids - including early morning archery lessons! We feasted on mackerel which Peter had only just caught, and freshly picked marrows from Els' garden.

Our only regret was not spending more time at Glenribbeen - next time we will do more than just pass through....

We arrived in the evening just before dinner and the owners (The O'Conners) were having a birthday party for Mr O'Connor. They showed great hospitality and seemed incredibly happy that we were there. We left to have dinner and when we returned Mr. O'Connor offered us warm bread pudding and rum raisin ice cream (this was his birthday cake and ice cream). He offered his family room and beautiful music for us to map out the rest of our trip. The breakfast, made by Mrs. O'Connor was the best breakfast that I have ever had and she made the best bread that I had ever tasted. They were a very charming couple and excellent hosts. The house was cozy and beautiful inside and outside. I would encourage everyone to stop by and meet these lovely people and see their wonderful home. If I ever get back to Ireland I will visit Glenribbeen again.

A real treasure to find,our stay at Glenribeen Lodge was a stopover between Kerry & Dublin - we thought we knew the undiscovered parts of Ireland but we were really surprised at the beauty and unspoilt solitude of the area. We were so warmly welcomed by Els & Peter (& Grannie the dog!), who were the most fantastic hosts imaginable. Excellent en-suite rooms, comfy beds and a real homely feel to the whole place. We enjoyed two walks, one along the river and one up the hill, the wildlife we saw included kingfishers ,herons and flying fish which our two children loved. The food was fabulous ,organic fresh produce and the veggie breakfast which was their own recipe was gorgeous! We were so pleased to stay at Glenribeen, a brilliant place to stay in an amazingly picturesque part of Ireland.

  • Liked — the hosts, and the beautiful accomodation and surroundings
  • Disliked — it was all really impressive
