“Really Good B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

This is a really good B&B . Immaculate rooms, good breakfast and warm welcome from Carmel. It was a cold evening and the turf fire in the sitting room was a nice homely touch.
We will definitely stop here again on our Irish travels.

This is a purpose-built b'n'b located on the main street of the village. The rooms are on the small side, sized like bedrooms in a house. The bed in our room was a double, which is on the small side for North Americans. The b'n'b is very clean and quiet and there is a nice lounge. The breakfast was alright, but not exceptional. A good place to stay if you're visiting one of the local gastro-pubs or restaurants, many of which are within walking distance.

We stayed here in April 2013. Absolutely beautiful B&B. Spotlessly clean, very warm welcome from Carmel who even offered us a lift to the local hotel that we were going to attend a wedding. The dining room was just gorgeous & the breakfast was top quality. Great selection of cereals, yoghurts, breads, scones & jams. The cooked full irish breakfast was excellent too. Highly recommend this B&B to other travellers.

Absolutely nothing to say wrong about this accommodation. Excellent in every way. We stayed here Friday 27th Sept. and found Carmel friendly and helpful - she even booked our restaurant for us! Rooms are fresh and airy and totally spotless. The Stone Lodge is a superb example of what all guesthouses in Ireland should be living up to. The breakfast matched the overall standard.
We were so impressed we have booked to come back to stay a night in October with two other couples to eat in another restaurant in the village!

this was such a wonderful place to stay. our room was incredible, so roomy and comfortable. carmel & oliver think of everything! tea & coffee facilities in your room and lots toiletries in the bathroom right down to femine products. breakfast was fantastic and everything was so fresh. wi-fi in the rooms and there's a cosy loungeroom with t.v books and tourist information, although carmel & oliver were a wealth of information. lovely little town, hope to go back.

My wife and I travelled around Ireland staying in B&Bs. Glasson Stone Lodge was a standout experience: warm welcome by Carmel and Oliver who went out of their way to be helpful in many ways. The room was large, spotlessly clean, attractively presented and at ground level which made it easy to get our substantial suitcases to our room. Large off road car park was a bonus. Breakfast was the best we had in all of the B&Bs - absolutely delicious and the fruit salad was extra good. We had dinner in one of the nearby pubs, only a couple of minutes walk away. Many thanks to Carmel and Oliver for a very pleasant stay.

Great place. Carmel and Oliver are very welcoming, very friendly but not intrusive. I came to the area for sailing in Lough Ree Yacht Club and spent 3 nights. Carmel was very helpful with dealing with my wet gear etc. The house is really comfortable with everything you could need, including a kettle in the room which was especially appreciated by this tea-aholic. Carmel also thoughtfully has the ensuite stocked with toiletries in case you have forgotten anything. Breakfast was fantastic – everything and anything you could think of was available, including freshly stewed rhubarb from Carmel’s mother’s garden. Delicious. The rooms were refreshed daily and clean towels supplied. There is a large Centra next door which was very useful for picking up my lunch for the boat. Glasson is a lovely quaint town with a choice of excellent places to eat. So all in all, top marks, no complaints and I will be back next time I am sailing in the area.
