“A welcoming and restful place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2012

So convenient to Cork City and Kinsale, this lovely guesthouse is a great home away from home for travellers. Wonderful and welcoming host with helpful local information, great breakfast and very peaceful and restful room with a serene mature garden outside the window. We definitely recommend this place and look forward to going back next time we travel to Ireland. Thank you, Adrian, for everything!.

Nothing more can describe the recent stay with Adrian and Noelle.
Great B&B, warm welcome, well appointed rooms with everything you need. Great sleep- as crey18 says this is an added benefit as I would normally not sleep well first night in another bed.
Fresh cooked breakfast- yummy.
So much better overall than big hotels where you are just another number.

Another great stay over with Adrian and Noelle. A warm welcome, as always, lovely room and comfortable bed. Clean and spotless. Slept like a baby, usually never do on the first night away anywhere! Fresh cooked breakfast set us up for the journey home the next morning.

Ive stayed here now on several occasions. Adrian is a super host and couldnt do more for you. The accomadation for a guest house is fantastic. Some one mentioned cosy, yep its that but much more. as a guest house it dosnt do meals which is a pity because the breakfasts are superb. Adrian's wife Noelle ( not sure if thats correct spelling, appologies if not) has cooking classes and unfortunataly ive had to walk in and out past the most beautiful smells having just had a fish supper or similar. Thankfully when I first stayed in Carrigaline the local hotel quoted an unbelievable high price so I went serching and found Glenwood House which was a 1st class alternative at a much more reasonable price.. Dont mess about just go direct..

A wonderful B&B, I stayed here for two nights having stayed in a couple of other hotels in the Carrigaline area whilst I serched for more permanent accommodation in Cork. I wish I had found Glenwood first. The accommodation is great, lovely cosy rooms and the owner is one of the friendliest hoteliers I've ever come across. Plus, FREE Wifi, a luxury not afforded in most hotels! This B&B is super value and more comfortable than most Hotels in the area. It is situated in a perfect location, far enough out to avoid the rough and tumble of the town, but close enough to walk into Carrigaline with ease. If you're in the Carrigaline area, definitely stay here.
