Absolutely excellent stay, with everything we needed to be comfortable away from home! Full kitchen and supplies, extremely comfortable beds, wood for the fireplace, cable tv and wifi, and very clean accommodations! We even arrived to find sweet treats and milk in the fridge, and coffee in the cupboard ready to go! Arriving after normal hours wasn't a problem, as access was readily available.
When we had a questions the owner was quick to respond.
Overall VERY pleased with our stay, and would highly recommend to others!
Our family of five spent a wonderful four nights at Glenview Lodge. It was our first visit to Ireland, and Seán and Monica made it memorable and superb. The property dates back all the way to the 1680’s but the farmhouse (built in 1865, I believe) is modernized and comfortable inside. It was perfect for our family: a double bedroom for my husband and me, two twin beds in a second bedroom for our adult sons, and a single twin bedroom for our teenaged daughter. Plus, the two and a half baths and full kitchen – and the ping pong table and guitar – were fantastic amenities that we enjoyed as well.
The location is excellent. We took day trips to Cork, Limerick, and the Cliffs of Moher. Seán and Monica have not only decorated the farmhouse warmly, but they provide TONS of information about Irish history and local trips available to take. They were very welcoming and made themselves available to answer our questions.
The best part of our trip was spending an evening with Monica and Seán as we opted for the “Irish Experience” package. I highly recommend any time that you can enjoy their company and stories, as they are lovely people who know the history and the surrounding area so well! Monica actually grew up at the Glenview Lodge as her childhood home... That evening will be a happy memory for our family for many, many years to come.
They are a beautiful couple who compliment one another so well: Seán is the history and details person (he also makes an amazing Irish Coffee!) and Monica is also warm and friendly, and a superb cook. I don’t think I will ever find an Irish Stew in the States that comes close to hers. We’ve been spoiled forever… :)
We highly recommend Glenview Lodge and truly hope that our family can return there one day. Monica and Seán – we wish you all the best and thank you for your hospitality, and sharing your lovely home with “strangers” who leave as friends.
