This place is definitely something special! The feeling of the house is so enchanting,so much history there ( especially after you hear the stories of the landlady !) The gardens are not the most manicured ones, but they are just amazing...!!You can actually feel the dedication and love the owners do put in here!! The breakfast was by far the... More

This home is in complete ruins. we arrived late at night and the bed had no sheets on it. We slept in our clothes and left in the morning. there is no resemblance to the home pictured in the "Hidden Gems of Ireland: brochure. They made many excuses for the neglect of the house and property but the bottom line... More

Do not waste a single cent of your money here. The new owners have let these once beautiful gardens go to wreck and ruin, and have the audacity to charge a small fortune to enter. Such a shameful act of wilful destruction and will only serve to bring the island into disrepute. Disgusted.

I simply adore the west of Ireland. Not only is the region incredibly beautiful, but there is such a delightful lightness in the spirit of the people you meet there. I only wish I had discovered this part of the world earlier in life! On this trip we were doing a circular tour, starting in Wexford and then slowly moving... More

We stayed two nights at Glanleam House and enjoyed every minute. From the convenient and beautifull house, the stories of the owner for those who have an open ear, the tea and wine at the fire place and the best dinner and breakfasts we have had in Ireland (which were all good to very good but this was special).

Our stay at Glanleam House was wonderful in all respects. Do go there, and don't be put off by reviews that do not take the trouble to ask the owner what she has tried to achieve with the place. The owner and her daughter (and grandchildren) were very welcoming and full of stories. The interior of the house is really... More

Avoid at all costs. Whilst on Valentia island for a day trip we decided to visit Glanleam house and gardens as my mother is a keen gardener. The main gates were open and the ticket office unmanned so we continued up the lane to the main house where a watchful dog alerted the owner to our presence. We were presented... More
