Beautiful part of Ireland, and I felt very much apart of it in a superb room that reminded me of being a guest in a manor as a girl. The hosts are a pleasure to talk to and the surrounding area delightful to explore. At...More
Just returned from 12 extraordinary days at Glenlohane and we were thoroughly charmed. As advertised, this isn't a hotel or even a B&B in the ordinary sense. Instead, one feels like a very pampered guest in this gracious family home.

delightful hosts. I was treated to delicious food and a unique and fascinating history of Desmond Sharp Bolster's life there at Glenlohane, the period of time he spent in the United States, and...More
Neither an hotel or a professional guest house, Desmond, Melanie and their son, Gordon, run Glenlohane as an extremely private house with an air of friendly informality so unique to Irish Country House Bed and Breakfasts. Certainly not considered a 'room for the night' type of B&B, there are no public signs at the roadside to draw the attention of casual visitors. Guests are welcomed on a pre-arranged basis and know where they are going by the detailed directions in this web site. There are no public and private quarters as in a professional place and guests may use facilities of the entire house as if staying with friends. There are family dogs and a cat in the background and animals play a large part of life at Glenlohane. Less than a quarter of a mile away, and still on the farm, is a Self Catering Cottage that can be rented on a weekly basis. Apart from farm animals, there are also horses, ponies, fantail pigeons and bantam hens in the traditional stable yard.Whether it be at Glenlohane for B&B or Glenlohane Cottage for self catering, staying is for the discerning visitor who wishes to learn more about Ireland's history and culture through personal contact with the owners. One is also well positioned for sightseeing throughout the Scenic Southwest of the country.
