“Beautiful Country House!”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

My friend and I spent one night in April at the Gleann Fia Country House and we could not have been happier with the house or the setting. The Victorian-style guesthouse is nestled in a beautiful forest which has walking trails surrounding it. We started the day with a morning walk along the stream and through the forest, and were surrounded by peaceful tranquility. The rooms were roomy, beautifully decorated and very clean. We enjoyed the conservatory and the delicious Irish breakfast. Conrad was friendly and hospitable, providing information and answering any questions we had about Killarney. I hope to return and definitely recommend this country house to anyone staying in Killarney.

We just sent two nights at Gleann Fia. We were greeted by our terrific host Connor who was full of energy, experience and advice on the Killarney area. We followed his suggestions and were not disappointed. The B&B is ideally located close to everything and even has a river running through the property along which you can walk. The conservatory was a wonderful place to relax, have a drink ( on the honour system) and chat with other guests. Our room was well situated with an ensuite bathroom and the necessities for tea or coffee making. Wifi was available throughout at no extra charge...a must when far away from family nowadays. The breakfasts were outstanding with a variety of choices. It is easy for us to recommend this B&B to anyone who is travelling to the Killarney area in Ireland. We would definitely stay at Gleann Fia again!

I stayed at Gleann Fia last August for a weekend because of a booking problem with the other hotel where I liked staying, but the owner called Gleann Fia and explained the situation and they promptly arranged a room for me. I was upset to have to leave but the whole thing ended up coming out beautifully.
Conrad and Brigitte are lovely people who work hard and make every effort to make you feel comfortable and well at their place. The estate is beautiful with a crook right in front of it. I had the pleasure to sit at a chair in front of the crook, read and relax. The decoration of the place is of such taste! My room was small and because of that I had to come down and stay in the living room and other rooms they have, all full of books, magazines, just impeccable taste. Breakfast was very good and I met a group of Italians there who liked Brazil and I still write to some of them. If I would come another time I would choose a larger room, I guess. But the one I had was good enough for the weekend. They keep everything super clean and help their guests in whatever they can. You need a car to stay there and you cannot walk to town, but Brigitte gladly took me to town so I could have dinner. This was really generous of her seeing that she works hard to keep that place. I highly recommend it!

We stayed 2 nights at Gleann Fia around Easter weekend. I was especially surprised by how affordable the rates were, and wasn't sure what to expect. The hosts, Conor and Bridget, were very friendly and helpful. The facilities are fantastic. All the charm one would expect from an Irish B&B. The location is beautiful and just far enough out of the way to feel secluded. Perfect if you have a vehicle or plan on cycling.
Advice for anyone planning to book, do so through Gleann Fia's website. I booked through goireland and not all of the room options/configurations are available.

We stayed there for one night with our little dog. The living room is very cosy and nice. Breakfast is great and plenty. The hosts were very kind and helpful. Thank to their advise we found some hidden gems along the coast. Definitely recommend. We are planning to go back in spring again.

We stayed 2 nights in Killarney and loved staying at Gleann Fia. It was a beautiful setting and we loved the conservatory and warm fireplace for tea or coffee after getting wet in the rain. The breakfasts had a great variety and very delicious!! We loved Bridget- she was so friendly and wonderful! She made us feel at home and gave us alot of great information on the area and helped arrange a pick up for our Ring of Kerry Tour. We were so happy with our stay there and were sad to leave. The only drawback was that we would have liked to walk to town; it was close (about 2km?), but the road was a bit too busy and not a great path. But overall, we loved it and would highly recommend it!

We were very excited on arrival al Gleann Fia as it was my job to organise our accommodation for the 3 of us. On arrival it was breath-taking and absolutely beautiful - luckily we had our own car and could travel to and from town - a long walk otherwise!
We had been searching for laundromats/laundrettes all over Ireland before being told by Conor that no they don't have those in Ireland. Every other country we've been to yes, but not Ireland. And Ireland is one of my most loved places in the world. On arrival. we were treated to Conor's knowledge of the local area and told we would have to listen as he would not repeat it if we came back downstairs and asked again. So we were deterred from asking again. Having been a Customer Service Manager I was perhaps a bit sensitive to the welcome. Having said that our stay was wonderful, the conservatory was magnificent (it has inspired our renovation of our own home extensions and Gleann Fia was at the heart - sitting there in the evening being able to take in the outdoors and the stars at the same time in the warmth of the inside - plus the honour system of the bar was outstanding!). I would stay there again in a heartbeat. I would like to see Brigid happier and Conor enjoy his job more - they have a tiny gem in the heart of the world well worth visiting!

Dear Bargain21

Thank you very much for your very nice review of our property - we appriciate you taking time to write.

In reply to some "buts" you had;

In Killarney we dont do self service laundromats/laundrettes but fully serviced laundry, where you hand in your items and they are washed / dryed / ironed or folded for you to collect later the same day on your return after visiting the Ring of Kerry / Dingle or other local attractions.

On your arrival and introduction to the local area, Oh dear; Im afraid you missed the Irish sense of humour - 90% of guests always need a recap or reminder of what I told them. This is very good as it tells me that they are enjoying, interested in the area and need more information.

I am not a psychiatrist but for me Bridget is a lovely natural and caring person with no airs or graces about her - she enjoys her guests company and goes the extra mile for everyone. As for I, well I can very honestly say I love my work 24x7x365.

Again thank you for staying with us and we both hope that you had a pleasant trip home and all is well.
C&B.
