The Glen Country House was my favorite accommodation during the 9 days my husband and I spent in Ireland. Our room was wonderfully comfortable with a great en-suite bath and lovely view of the grounds. The unique french toast served at breakfast was the best I have ever eaten. My husband would say the same about the Irish Breakfast he... More

Unfortunately we could only stay one night. But we loved it. The house is gorgeously decorated, (could easily go for a boutique hotel) in a beautiful surrounding, nice (and clean) comfortable bedroom and a wonderful breakfast, every thing so fresh and homemade, granola - french toast yammie, served by the very friendly host.

A far above average Bed and Breakfast establishment, lovely peaceful setting and an interesting old house still in the same family for generations,the latest of whom are doing a great job looking after their guests. The breakfast is a superb offering as good as any I have had anywhere. I would highly recommend to anyone looking to stay in the... More

This small country house is listed in several of the guide books that list quality accommodation in Ireland, and deservedly so. The house,which dates to 1860, is in a 300 acre parkland setting and is impeccably and tastefully maintained and furnished. It has only 5 bedrooms, so we counted ourselves extremely lucky to get a booking for August bank holiday... More

We stayed here for one night after leaving Kinsale. It is a lovely house. There was no tea or coffee In the bedrooms Which I found surprising for the price, and there was an unpleasant smell in the bathroom while we were there. The atmosphere was not very friendly, however the views were lovely and the common room was very... More

Lovely old farmhouse with great rooms and breakfast. Guy was very hospitable and spent time explaining the family history of the farm and giving directions to local places. What we will always remember most about this place was the breakfast--the pancakes were awesome! You should order them and see for yourself. Nice place and we would recommend it to anyone... More

This place is beautiful and elegant, and the hostess Diana and Guy warm, helpful but not too intrusive. The tree lined driveway, the ivy covered house and stately yet welcoming rooms were lovely. Our room was so pretty, the bed HUGE and comfortable, the grounds and view of the ocean spectacular. My husband and I sat outside near the grass... More

We stayed with Guy and Diana as part of a large booking for a local wedding. The care that was taken to make sure we were comfortable and happy was unlimited. Our rooms were warm, clean, beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable. The charming sitting room really made The Glen more like a small hotel than a B&B. The breakfast was... More
