Just spent three fantastic days at Glencar House Hotel. The hotel was fantastic, food excellent, location amazing and above all the greatest hospitality you could ever imagine from Liam and Eilish. The whole experience was brilliant and we can't wait to go back again. Would recommend to all.

Stayed here 1 night only but so wished to have stayed longer. Our room was spacious and spotless and En-suite Shower was brill. We decided to have dinner there and were so glad we did
as the food was delicious and plentiful as was the breakfast next morning.Enjoyed our few drinks in the bar (Warm & Inviting) and chatting with the Locals & Guests and have to mention the lovely
singing from Mike & Margaret (What a Hoot) and Piano singalong with Eilis...a perfect place for a perfect stay! Will have to return someday soon and stay longer. Thank you so much Liam & Eilis for everything and a big cuddle to "Lizzy".

We stayed at Glencar house for three fabulous and memorable nights.

The hotel was delightful and simple but what really made it really shine was the location and our hosts - Eilis and Liam. They were so caring and attentive and ... the food! We expected to be eating in pubs or towns near the hotel but no! The dinners there were exceptional (to be honest we ate there every night because it was the best food we had on our whole trip) and so well priced. Breakfast was also a treat and we were able to watch the rain, deer, hares and birds from the conservatory.

We had a room with a great view of the mountains and thanks to Liam we were able to get a guide to take us up there.

We live in Australia but should we be in Ireland again, we would make the trip back even across the country!

I would recommend staying there to anyone looking for a break and a touch of real service - you definitely need to give it a go.

My family went to Glencar House for many years when I was a kid and we loved the freedom of the huge gardens, river walks and beach trips as well as the feeling of coming home to a place so familiar and well loved each year.

Having read the reviews here, my parents and I decided to return for a few days - and WOW! None of the charm of Glencar has been lost but only added to. Eilis & Liam are the most hospitable of hosts and made every effort to see that any request was met. Eilis is a fantastic cook and every meal was delicious. Despite the fact that they run a busy hotel, both Liam & Eilis always had time to stop and chat, share stories and make everyone they came into contact with feel at ease.

The accommodation is unfussy and simple. The surroundings are unspoilt and even in the constant rain, are quiet and provide restoration for a weary London soul!
And to top it all off, Dad caught a great big salmon which provided much celebration both after it was caught and that night - a great feast of salmon, wine and fantastic conversation ensued!

This is old fashioned Irish hospitality at its very best (think pre-Celtic tiger) where generosity, joy in serving and attention to detail and to the customer is paramount. Don't miss this gorgeous gem of a hotel!

Thank you so much for taking the time to post your review. We were so delilghted that you and your parents decided to return to Glencar House this year and relive all your childhood memories with us. We really enjoyed hearing all the stories of the times you visited Glencar House back in the 70's. We look forward to seeing you again next year and hopefully your dad will be lucky enough to catch another big salmon. Best wishes from Eilis and Liam.
