Liam and Jennifer were gracious hosts. Liam is full of information. Rooms were clean and large enough. Bathrooms are large and some are not so large. All are sufficient. Traditional Irish breakfast, will keep you going way past lunch. Nice large sunroom. I would love to return.

Liam and Jennifer were our hosts. Liam was outside to greet us as we pulled into the driveway. There were three couples in our party and each couple had a room with a bathroom either in each room, or close by. They provided tea and coffee for us in our rooms.
The first night we were there, Liam and Jennifer serenaded us with a few Irish songs as well as one of my favorite songs, Edelweiss. Liam was quite the entertainer, providing us with funny tidbits of trivia, jokes, as well as information about things to see in the area. If you want to be entertained, this is the place.
We ate breakfast in the living room that housed an oversized table and chairs. The sitting area was a glass enclosed patio. The "indoor pool" was an above ground pool with a domed cover. There was also a play area in the yard including a trampoline.
Staying at the Riverside B&B is as close to staying at home as you can get. Forget about fancy hotels and other places, move in with Liam and Jennifer. The most gracious, accommodating and entertaining hosts I have ever met - and I've traveled a lot in my 81 years. The breakfast will last you the rest of the day, I guarantee!!! If you want a treat, ask them to sing a song or two for you, you won't regret it. This was my first trip to Ireland; we had a "family going back to find our roots" affair with me, two sons,daughter-in-law, daughter, four grand-children from the USA, husband and wife with two children, distant cousin and his mother, and a third male distant cousin from the UK. Trying to take care of this group with proper berthing arrangements, etc. would be a major undertaking for most B&Bs, Liam and Jennifer handled it with ease and made us all very comfortable. We will go back again!!!!
Liam provides trip planning, an amazing breakfast, light-hearted banter, weather reports, soccer commentary, jokes and stories, and an incredible assortment of American movie and music trivia. The beds are perfect, the bathrooms are suitable and the surroundings are beautiful. This is not the Ritz, it's your Mom and Dad's summer house - its your comfortable Home away from Home. You want to trout fish, 2 minute walk. You want to go hiking, 3 minute stroll. You want to go for a run or a jog, right at the end of the driveway. You want pastoral scenes, you are surrounded by cows, sheep, horses, a family of crows, and Irish hares galore. Yet, you are 8 minutes from towns & villages in all directions (Glanworth, Mitchelstown, Mallow, and Fermoy). Great location to hit the Big Attractions in Blarney, Cork, Limerick, Cahir, Cobh, the Rock of Cashel and so much more. All good stuff - sheets, towels, bedding, big windows, good lighting, indoor swimming pool, sitting room, reading room, couches, chairs, and even a conservatory. You name it, it's all here. Liam and Jennifer are wonderful entertainers, cooks, and fine Irish folks in every way. Amazing two week stay in Glanworth !

We stayed 4 nights here with 7 family members. The location was perfect for daytrips and then to return each night. We planned to do see certain places while there and with our host Liams suggestions were able to squeeze in even more.
Breakfast that was served each morning was "fantastic" as one of our group repeatedly would say. I think I fell in love with Irish soda bread. A big thank you to Liam and Jennifer for having us and for the little extras they allowed us. If ever back in Ireland, we would for surely return. Everything was great!!! Thanks again, From Florida and NC!
