Went to this accommodation as we were attending a wedding in nearby Ballyliffin, could not get a room at the hotels there so booked into the Glen House Country Accommodation and that itself was a blessing in disguise. No disadvantage other than a short drive. A well appointed and spotless accommodation with interested staff that talk and engage with guests and in particular the owner Sonia, maybe hotel management courses should book in here for a week or two and see how it's really done.
Plenty of good signage to the accommodation and plenty of free parking.
A varied breakfast menu cooked to a high quality and nothing spared. Rooms are excellent and lovely views around. I had an executive room and was delighted to pay the small extra charge, worth it.
Sonia has also considered the greater tourist needs with a small craft shop and a tea room open to the public later in the day, and will not infringe upon your stay. Also public toilets are provided by Sonia for visitors to the adjacent car park and visitors to the nearby Glennevin Waterfall. These facilities are provided free of charge by the guest house owner and she must be commended on her consideration towards visitors and her business ingenuity in opening the craft shop and tea rooms, well done.
If you are just a casual visitor to the waterfall and need to use the guest house facilities, remember it's provided free of charge to you, so, visit the shop, maybe buy a coffee or make a donation in the box in the car park for the upkeep of the facilities. No dogs to the waterfall, it's sheep country so respect the wishes of the farming community and leave your dog in the car and enjoy the waterfall and surrounds dog free and no stress on the sheep.
