We really enjoyed our stay here. When we first arrived Diana offered to call a restaurant so we could go get some dinner which I thought was really sweet of her . The property and house are just beautiful. The animals so sweet and friendly, we really loved their morning visits. The breakfast was by far the best we had...

Glen Country House is in the perfect location for a quiet getaway. However, Tripadvisor might want to reconsider the Certificate of Excellence they have awarded to this property. My wife and I booked 3 nights, but after two nights we decided to leave early and informed Mr Scott of this during breakfast. In response to Mr Scott's question as to...

These people were just looking for a freebie!! They complained about the pillows on the second morning and said they couldn't possibly stay a 3rd night, they should have said something the first morning and I could have offered her a choice of many different types of pillows, but when i suggested this she said she "shouldn't have to ask"....am...

An absolutely delightful place to stay. Guy & Diana run an exceptionally welcoming and comfortable B&B. We stayed for one night on a golfing road trip and would have loved to stay longer. On arrival Diana welcomed us warmly and made tea for us to enjoy in the garden. With a rather delicious slice of homemade cake ! We had...

Thank you for your kind words and yes, you are correct we are closing our doors as a B&B on 23rd September (we won't be changing our minds!). It was lovely having you to stay.

Stayed here with my wife and 2 year old for a weekend. It's a lovely old style farmhouse. We had a very comfortable bedroom and large ensuite, the little fella enjoyed the bath a lot. Breakfast was good with healthy choices available and also the mandatory full irish. It is located in a beautiful spot overlooking the sea but it...

We stayed at Glen Country house on our first night in Ireland. It is a lovely house, with beautiful grounds. The room and breakfast were terrific, and Diana spent quite a bit of time helping us with driving and exploring the area.

This is just what I imagined a classic country house experience would be. Set in a beautiful location in secluded countryside with stunning views from the front of the property right to the sea, it was even better than the photographs and other reviews led me to expect. It is elegantly but comfortably furnished, with a gorgeous spacious sitting room...

We stayed at Glen Country House for 1 night during a recent trip to Ireland and wished we would have stayed longer. The property and house are stunning! We arrived and were greeted right away by the Innkeepers who were a lovely couple with many great tips on the area and where to go. The room was beautiful with a...

We arrived at the Glen Country House after spending four days in Dublin. We purposely planned our trip to include a variety of accommodations, including this lovely B & B. Our room was large and beautiful, and very comfortable. The windows overlooked the gardens and the Atlantic. We had a king size bed, sitting area, and large bathroom with a...

Glen Country House is the Ireland oasis that you dream about. You drive along winding, beautiful roads, passing pastures and hills to reach the property. The entryway alone, with it's row of huge, mature trees, tells you that you have arrived some place special. Close enough to Kinsale, but far enough away to experience the peaceful, impressive grounds, with views...

This is one of the best B&Bs I've ever stayed in. It's located in the countryside and has a beautiful view of the sea. The husband and wife hosts are very helpful and friendly. The breakfasts are made-to-order, with several different choices from eggs (any style with meats of your choice), to pancakes, to french toast. The accommodations are spotless,...
