Exactly what the pictures and description said. It was quiet and we had everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

We flew into Ireland that day so this was our place to learn to drive and recuperate from jet lag. Very quiet and nestled in the hills with farms all around. Monica and Sean answered all my questions about our first plans of sight seeing. Kitchen was well equipped and everything was clean. Monica gave us a box of home made chocolates when we left and they were delicious! Thank you!

Lovely Place To Stay

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely a wonderful place to stay. We were a family of four (2 adults/2 - 25+ kids) and we totally enjoyed the farm house. It was in a great location for day trips around Ireland. Monica and Sean were wonderful hosts. The countryside around the house was breathtaking. Highly recommend!!!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Great place in country but easily accessible to sites in area. The house was quaint but fully renovated and equipped with everything you could need and very comfortable for our party of 4 adults. The setting was stunning with wonderful views over the rolling hills. And one of the highlights was meeting Sean and Monica, our hosts. When we arrived we were having car trouble and Sean was able to get a mechanic there right away and have our car fixed and ready to go without loosing out on our time in Ireland. And when we arrived we had a wonderful loaf of fresh baked bread waiting for us from Monica. They gave us great tips about things to do and places to see and were very helpful. I would highly recommend Glenview Lodge.

Quiet peaceful home

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend this beautiful quiet home to everyone who is wanting to see the beautiful countryside. It was a perfect location for those 1 day trips to scenic Ireland. Sean and Monica were wonderful hosts. The food was great and all the directives they gave were very helpful. So if you are looking for a quiet beautiful country side this is the place to stay.

Serene countryside, and great accommodations.

  • 5 of 5

We could not have wished for better on our first trip to Ireland, and were so pleased with the accommodations. Sean and Monica were delightful hosts and have thought of everything to help you settle in. They even provided literature of the surrounding areas that might be of interest, and a list of restaurants that were close by. We ate at the Mallard Restaurant in New Castle West twice; it was very nice and we highly recommend it. We traveled to many suggested areas and it was nice to come back in the evening to sit outside and enjoy the peaceful surroundings. To sit outside until after 10pm and have it still be light was an absolute joy. Thank Sean and Monica for helping to make this trip memorable!

We stayed for a week with our 3 kids. House was very clean and just right for the 5 of us. The property is gorgeous and it is the most peaceful place. Sean and Monica were so lovely and made us feel very welcome in their beautiful farmhouse. They also add many special touches that make you feel so well taken care of. Would absolutely recommend this property. It is a perfect spot to stay to explore the West and South of Ireland. We have many happy memories from our time there.
