“Hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

My boyfriend and I booked the place as they are dog friendly and what a pleasant discovery!
Our room on the first floor was lovely with plenty of light and space. They have an outside area for dogs and our dog had a blast in there meeting other dogs!
Gill and Caroline made us feel at home and their breakfast is superb!
Just a few minutes away from Kinsale and the beautiful coast.

Room Tip: First floor in the main house

My boyfriend and I stayed at this gorgeous B&B when we were going to a wedding nearby. Another couple of our friends stayed here also and we were all thrilled with the place. In the middle of the Cork countryside it's only a short drive to Kinsale and Innishannon. The beautiful house is set in lovely gardens. The host couldn't have been nicer. We received a wonderful welcome. Our room was really clean and comfortable. Our host made us some tea while we waited on our friends to arrive with biscuits which was a lovely touch. We had it in the drawing room which was so cozy. When we had to change our plans to leave a day early our host was very accommodating. Our breakfast was so good. The choice was amazing and as somebody with gluten and dairy intolerance, I was really well catered for. One of, if not the best B&B's I've stayed in. Would definitely go back if I was staying in the area.

I stayed with my extended family, three generations of us, and we really enjoyed Glebe House and appreciated the hospitality. Breakfast was delicious, the grounds were well worth exploring, the price was reasonable, and the location perfect for exploring nearby Kinsale. Gill was a lovely host, and she went out of her way to be kind and helpful to the youngest among us (ages 2+). She also gave us smashing restaurant recommendations and excellent directions.

We stayed at Glebe House with our little dog recently and absoutely loved it. Only booked it as it was dog friendly but was pleasantly surprised by the beautiful rooms and tasty breakfasts. The host Gill was extremely friendly and welcoming. We will certainly be back !

We stayed here in August 2013, whilst at a friends wedding close by.
I stumbled across the house hotel whilst looking for hotels or B&B's close to inishannon.
Upon your arrival you are given a warm welcome by the owner and brought into the drawing room for a cup of tea!
The few rooms are spatious and comfortable, with a old world decor - very charming.
They have beautiful gardens, well worth a walk around
And a delicious selection of breakfasts - the waffles are a real treat!

Taking a short break, you will not find a more charming place to stay. It is old world yet modern in all its amenities. Caroline and Jill will not be bettered anywhere as hosts. Every whim is catered for. The food is excellent and believe me I like my food. Beds are extremely comfortable and one can definitely sleep well in this secluded but well located Country House. Kinsale is just a short drive away and if one is interested in having a quiet drink away from the hub bub of one of Irelands premier tourist venues, then Kilmacsimon Quay is the perfect place to while away the evenings. The locals are very friendly and a welcome word is offered to all strangers. On top of being a lovely place to stay with well manicured gardens. A great place for a romantic getaway, but one can also bring their family, friends and pets. Perfect.

Room Tip: All the rooms are equally lovely. I have stayed in all of them over the years.

I'm just back from Glebe house where I stayed for the weekend with 18 of my close friends for my hen party. The place was amazing... wcouldn't ask for more! We had "afternoon tea", activities on the grounds, pizza in their wood fired oven, off to Kinsale for dancing, back to Glebe for a sing song, and a super breakfast to cap it all off. We had free run of the house so could relax and enjoy the facilities without being interrupted by others or (more importantly) disturbing others. Certainly a hen with a difference but ideal for me... loved every minute of it and it was all thanks to a wonderful bridesmaid, brilliant friends and of course Gill and all the rest at Glebe house..... thanks a mill!!!
