“Thank You Bridget!”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

Just back from spending 4 nights in this lovely country house. The room was nice and clean and the cat 'Socks' was extremely friendly. After it came to Bridget's attention that I am a vegetarian she made a great effort to provide me with a lovely veggie breakfast every morning. Bridget is a lovely, caring & sincere hostess and I just wanted to say a big thank you to Bridget!

We stayed at Gleann Fia for 3 nights and during that time found the accomdation to be excellent. The property of 5 acres was beautiful and tranquil. Both Connor and Bridget were found to be friendly and informative hosts and the breakfasts were generous and tasy including a lot of Bridget's delicious home made jams and breads.If we were ever to return to Killarney we would definitely stay at Glean Fia again.

Dear Richard F.

Thank you for this very positive review of your recent stay with us. Spending 3 nights in one establishment you get to know and see almost everything about it, and for us your opinion is more valued.

We hope that you enjoyed the remainder of your visit to Ireland and Europe and had a safe trip home.

If we can do anything for you from this part of the world please let us know and we certainly will try.

With every good wish for the coming years.

Upon arrival Connor was very helpful in helping us book an extra night at our next stop in Doolin. He called and made all the arrangements for us. What a nice way to start our stay. About a mile from downtown Killarney this quiet and beautiful B&B has alot to offer. The breakfasts were great and Bridget was a first class host. We also bought 3 jars of her homemade delicious raspberry jam
which she bubble wrapped for us to bring home. Highly recommend.

We enjoyed our five night stay here with friends on the outskirts of Killarney. The breakfast was delicious--eggs prepared in any way you liked them in a timely fashion, the jam was delicous and made by the owner. Wished I could have had either French toast or pancakes once or twice during my stay. The hosts were helpful with suggestions on places to visit and where to eat. It was a nice place to relax after a busy day of exploring the countryside.

This B & B is located outside of Killarney with a brook and wildflowers nearby. Very peaceful
setting. The rooms were very comfortable and we could hear the brook nearby.
Killarney is not far away, but unless you are fit, a car would be recommended. Their
breakfasts were very good and hearty.

Gleann Fia is located outside Killarney in a wooded setting along a brook with lovely wildflowers. The rooms are lovely and the food was delicious. It has more a hotel feel than a B&B, however. It has a lot of rooms and the hosts are informative but don't interact with the guests as much as other B&B's where we have stayed in Ireland. A car is necessary as town is a good long walk but the distance from town is part of its draw.

Dear kccruisers.

Thank you for your review and kind words regarding your stay with us.

I have to say we very much enjoy interacting with all our guests from the moment they arrive, with introductions to The County - The Town - Local Attractions and Activities. On going interaction throughout the stay giving up to date information on weather and travel - don't know what more you can expect. We don't like to over talk with guests as they may not like or want it. No mater how familiar you may want to be there is a professional line. In 30 years I have never heard this comment, so I am somewhat amused.

Wishing you all the very best of health and happiness in the coming years.

Bridget and Conor.

The setting down a narrow lane, in the shade of large trees, next to a brook could not be more perfect. Then comes the lovely home, the comfortable rooms and warm hosts. Bridget is absolutely charming and makes you feel that you are good friends and the only people there. The parking was easy and plentiful and the town close by, although you do have to drive.
A great place to stay and relax!
