“Wonderful host”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

We stayed here recently while on a two day photography course in Kerry, the guest house was part of the package so we had no say in choosing it, but what a lucky find......from the time we arrived we had such a welcome from Conor who was informative and helpful, and a good cook also. Sadly we never met Brigid on this occasion, but maybe next time. We will definately come back. The bedroom was clean with plenty hanging and drawer space,and en suite. The downstairs rooms comfortable with a welcoming fire to greet us when we arrived in wet and chilled to the bone. And the honesty bar worked very well with plenty of choice. Thank you Conor

Dear Travellor60.

Thank you very much for your kind words and comments regarding your stay with us. I remember your photography party very well. October can be damp and unfortunately the weather was not kind that weekend. If I recall the flight from Kerry was also questioned due to the sudden downturn in the weather.

Hopefully you will return for another shoot and enjoy a more pleasant weather weekend.

Best wishes always.

I found this lovely B&B on the Internet and it was exactly what I pictured it to be! It is beautiful, charming, relaxing, and my family felt so comfortable there we only wished we had planned to stay longer! Connor and Bridget were so friendly and helpful. When we were leaving I felt sad to say goodbye, as if they were our relatives we had come to visit. The breakfast was delicious and eating by the fire was so relaxing. The perfect way to start the day. In the evening our family relaxed in the sitting room and enjoyed some hot tea and conversation before retreating to our lovely room. Connor even went out of his way to help us with an issue we had with a hotel we had booked in Dublin for the end if the week. He even went as far as speaking with the hotel directly and negotiating for us to get a room upgrade at no cost! We are so thankful to Connor and Bridget for making our first trip to Ireland a wonderful experience we will never forget! By the way, we had our four young children with us and they went out of their way to make our kiddos feel right at home. I want to plan a trip to come back to Ireland just to stay at the Gleann Fia again!

Dear musicmommy4

What a nice review to get from a lovely, friendly and gracious family. We were so lucky that you found us and delighted to assist you with a very small issue with your accommodations in Dublin.
I know its October of 2013 that you were with us but I do recall your time with us with a fond memory. I hope that one day you all will find the time to visit again and until then you are in our top ten.

Best always for your family,

Bridget and Conor

Great charm and lovely setting for this well needed respite. Close to town and filled with plenty of suggestions for things to do as well as maps too. Connor was more Han helpful and a great chef w breakfast too! And really saved us when we realized we had the wrong adapters for our electronics!!!

This B&B was fantastic.Bridget was so welcoming. We were spending our holiday in Ireland with our American friends who flew across the Atlantic to meet us (half way) as we had been staying in the UK with our family. Our rooms were fabulous and clean with ensuites. We stayed in that evening and brought in cheese and deli food and wine, which we enjoyed in the conservatory. When we ran out you could avail yourself of the collection in the conservatory. You wrote down what you drank on an honour basis and it was charged to the bill on leaving Gleann Fia. Other guests came in and joined in before retiring that evening. With the American Presidential elections looming it was very interesting conversation! The breakfast was wonderful. There is a gorgeous creek running through the property and great photos shots there. All in all I would thoroughly recommend staying at Gleann Fia Country House.

All we dreamed of for our Irish B&B!
Charming & helpful hosts, large & comfortable bed/bathroom, lovely common rooms, delicious & filling breakfasts, beautiful & green grounds/babbling brook. You will never want to leave!
Each day, Conor helped us plan our adventures which were wonderful. But, we also loved returning each night!
Our family of four had a large room (seemed more like 2 rooms open to each other), a double bed plus 2 twins... very spacious and the largest bathroom we've seen in Ireland!
Would love to return!

We had booked this country house for one night but the minute we arrived, we knew we wanted to stay longer - so we did! Conor welcomed us with warmth and plenty of first-hand local info, which proved invaluable. Our room was wonderful-spacious comfortable and very well equipped. We had a wonderful view over the rear lawns to the stream running through this beautiful country estate just outside Killarney, even a deer came to visit. It is perfectly placed for sights around Kerry and the town itself is just lovely! The house offers everything you could need, including an honesty bar and free tea/coffee all day. Bridget serves a fantastic breakfast with so much choice. Socks the cat was a great addition! All up, a delightful house and couple make you feel very special..we will be back!

Room Tip: Room 2 is just lovely! Double aspect and very spacious.

Glean Fia country house is 2k's from Killarney Town Centre. Our room was comfortable, breakfast was ok. I prefer natural yoghurt rather the flavoured varieties. Toasted soda bread would have been better than the white toast served.

The communal rooms especially the conservatory are very nice. The owners offer an honour system for wine, beer, spirits and soft drinks which was a nice touch. We stayed 3 nights and it was a good base to get to all the sights we were visiting during the day. While we were there, there was a number of others Aussies staying there.
