Giltraps Townhouse & Glamping
Ranked #1 of 2 Kinnitty B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 September 2017

Just finished a two night break at Giltraps Glamping with 3 friends. What can I say the place is a beautiful gem located in the centre of Ireland. (Ideal location for any part of the country). From the moment we arrived, we were made feel welcome and nothing was any inconvenience to any of the staff members. We didn't really know what to expect with glamping but Giltraps by far exceeded our expectations. The Cabin was fab, everything you could wish for, Comfy beds, lovely linen. The bathrooms (a close walk away) were spotless. We got the breakfast hamper delivered to our Cabin the following morning, it was so fresh and tasty. The breakfast was fab. That evening, we went across the road to Giltraps bar for what was meant to be the famous one drink but the music and craic was to good to leave. Thanks to everyone at Giltraps for making it such a memorable stay. I highly recommend it. Can't wait for our next visit.

We stayed in a log cabin on the glamping site. The cabins were beautiful and very cosy. The glamping area was very neat and well laid out and also had mini farm with hens and pigs! We also had a friendly little kitten visit our deck. Kinnity itself is a lovely spot with 2 small quaint shops and 2 pubs. We visited giltraps pub which was lovely and enjoyed a few games of pool, in their beautiful pool room. The bar staff also served tasty complimentary food which we were delighted with! Breakfast was delivered to our door the following morning in a little crate which included tea,coffee,croissants and a yummy fry in a bap each. We went for a cycle the following day with bikes provided by giltraps. The bikes were very easy and comfortable to cycle, we cycled a loop around kinnity castle and it was great. Would highly recommend for a quiet peaceful retreat. Thanks to the lovely staff for a great stay and keep up the good work!

Kinnity is a beautiful rural village which is full of friendly people. The untouched landscape may trick you into thinking the local pubs and hotels may be old fashioned however Giltraps has a menu, service and procedures that would put high end venues in London to shame.

The hotel rooms and Glamping are adjacent to the cafe which serves incredible food and delicious coffee. The staff were so helpful and went over and above the call of duty to make our stay perfect.

Across the road from the cafe, the Giltraps pub is a lovely, reasonably priced traditional Irish pub. When I visited it was for a wedding and the pub provided a feast of a barbecue and had two live bands.

I can't wait to go back my stay was fantastic!

We had such an amazing stay here in one of the Glamping log cabins. From the moment we arrived everything was perfect from the wonderful staff to the spotless log cabin. The facilities on site were perfect. Our stay was topped off by a visit from the Giltraps tooth fairy which absolutely made my youngest sons year!!! I cannot fault anything from our stay here we cannot wait for our next visit!!! Thank you guys!!! The Healy family
