Our trip to Glanleam started out bright and sunny on June 3rd 2012 and things got even better from there on in.We were greeted by the most friendly young lady,the daughter of the house who gave us a map and advised us on the route to walk towards the healing well and meditation area.We started off in the walled garden and then walked through the secret wood which would delight any child and get their imagination going,where fairies and goblins might live.!!!!We sat in the warm peaceful sunshine at the healing well as there are garden benches throughout the grounds to rest and retreat from the real world in this magical place.Every corner we encountered showed us one more beautiful area.The wild flowers were al in bloom and the sun glistened on the sea and nearby Valentia lighthouse,which can be viewed more closely if you take a short walk through a lovely meadow,Having completed our tour we were met by the gracious lady of the house who enquired if we had enjoyed ourselves,-well,it surpassed all of our expectations.My only advise would be is to pack a picnic because it was hunger and the desire for a cup of tea which made us leave this beautiful place.There are lovely picnic areas and toilet facilities nearby.Marian and Conor.cork.
