“Charming old house in a beautiful country setting with a wonderful host”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2013

This house is full of character, history and country charm and sits in a beautiful rural setting. We loved it. It's off the beaten path, and it was worth the extra drive for us, and not that inconvenient. Josephine is a wonderful host - very welcoming, informative and helpful. She has lots of walks in the area to suggest and has a lot of detailed maps of the area and hike books for you to look at. Lively, spirited and delightful person, we thoroughly enjoyed her company and interesting conversations with her. To us it was true Ireland staying at her place. We were there in a blustery weather and every evening when we returned there was a warm fire going in the woodstove waiting for us - such a nice and welcoming touch, a true Irish hospitality. We had a fabulous time staying there and enjoyed visiting Killary Fjord, Leenaun, and Cong. Roundstone isn't that far away, and nor are Ballynahinch and Clifden. Thank you, Josephine, for the fabulous Connemara experience! We will be back!

If you like to get off the beaten path, this is the place for you. After a short drive through the woods, you come upon this lovely little home at the end of the road. Our hosts were very friendly. Had a nice chat with Joe in the evening in the living room. Beds were very comfortable. Woke up to a rooster's crow, which was delightful, and enjoyed a delicious breakfast. Great place for a get-away.

I have been to Glen Valley twice ( 2008 and 2010) and will return again when I can. The innkeeper, Josephine, is as pleasant and sociable as you could want. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the Irish Breakfast is sensational. You are made to feel at home and you cannot help but relax in the serene setting of the farmhouse. I look forward to my next visit.

We spent one night at Glen Valley during our road trip of Ireland. Very warm hospitable family feel to the house and the two Joe's made us feel very welcome. Still laughing about Joe's story's. We turned up late in the afternoon and Jo left us a note on the door and the keys asking us to make ourselves at home (very nice touch) This B & B was the most remote of all the one's we stayed at, this too just added to the charm though. I would suggest using your GPS to locate, or call before you hit Leenane, as the property is a good 3 or 4 miles before you hit the town and quite easy to miss the road sign if driving Northbound.

We spend two nights in Glen Valley Farmhouse. The location is wonderful, with a lot of possibilities for walks around . The house itself was probably once a nice place, but today it is not well kept. It is overpriced compared to other places we stayed. Definitively avoid it if you are allergic to dust!

The location of the house is its best attribute as it is so secluded. Aside from that, the house has great character and is decorated to a really high standard. It has a really cosy feel to it. Very comfortable bed. Very relaxing spot.

My husband and I spent several nights at Glen Valley during our honeymoon in Ireland. Joe and Josephine were beyond hospitable and treated us like we were part of the family. The B&B is nestled in a beautiful, quaint and scenic part of Ireland (near the Connemara Mountains). We are looking forward to returning during our next venture to Ireland!!!
