I come from Finland to study in near Carrigaline and this BB house was excellent chose. Wake up morning and go eat fresh and big breakfast and go stuby. Evening come back and if want eat owners wife cook good big home make meal and of course the price was low. After that it was easy to go bed and rest. Place is quiet and that makes sleeping easy. If i need to again near Cork i will 100% sure book room Glenwood House and go see friendly Adrian and he wife! Thanks from Finland.

Glenwood House offers the perfect mix of a quiet place and very friendly hosts with whom you can enjoy a friendly chat. The rooms are very clean and offer all amenities one needs on a business trip. Breakfast is very good and daily newspapers are provided. Adrian is always there in case you need something, and gives you the feeling of being at home.
I stayed at Glenwood House for one week and will definitely come back on my next business trip to Carrigaline.

This time a business visit with a UK colleague who was most impressed and complimentary. As she is a hardened traveler and hard to please this was high praise indeed. So I was delighted that I booked to stay at the Glenwood, so much better than big, impersonal hotels, huge beds and a great nights sleep.
Free WiFi- that works!!
And then the fresh cooked breakfast, wonderful home made preserves (plum, vanilla and star anise- amazing!!).
After one long day and heading into another this was a relaxing and restful retreat.
Thanks again to Adrian & Noelle.

Room Tip: No need- all excellent!!

We stayed at this guest house in November and were thrilled with our stay! Excellent service, great food, clean and comfortable rooms and situated within walking distance to the local town- what more could you ask for? The owner Adrian could not have been any more helpful and was on standby to offer advice and assistance should we have needed it. What is great about this guest house is that it offers top quality rooms with up-to-date facilities that would be found in a top class hotel whilst, at the same time, providing a tranquil experience that can only be found in this type of guest house. You get the best of both worlds!

Thank you for everything Adrian and family. We hope to be back soon!

P.s. If you stay at this guest house make sure you purchase one of the delicious homemade jams on offer,a must have for the jam lovers out there.

I travel in Ireland a lot and stay in hotels and B&Bs. This is one of the best ever I've stayed in. The people are nice, the decor and furniture is fresh & new., the breakfast is lovely with freshly squeezed oj and fresh fruit. They also have plums poached in vanilla & star anise! There is flat screen TVs and free wifi. The price is very good value. The bed was lovely & firm. It's ideal for me as I do a lot of work in Ringaskiddy but it's very close to Cork & on the was to the west. I'll be back. Dave Toner, Dublin 18.

Room Tip: They're all good.

We stayed recently in Glenwood House and we were hugely impressed with this delightful B&B. Excellent service, great room, quiet surroundings and delicious breakfast. Glenwood House provides brilliant value for money and we would not stay anywhere else while staying in the Cork area. Highly recommended !

So convenient to Cork City and Kinsale, this lovely guesthouse is a great home away from home for travellers. Wonderful and welcoming host with helpful local information, great breakfast and very peaceful and restful room with a serene mature garden outside the window. We definitely recommend this place and look forward to going back next time we travel to Ireland. Thank you, Adrian, for everything!.
