On our trip to Kerry to climb Carrauntoohil we stayed in Glencar House. On arrival we recieved a very warm welcome and immediately felt at home. The ensuite room was spotlessly clean and had the most comfortable bed. The hotel is situated in a remote and peaceful location and is a perfect base for climbing Carrauntoohil. Liam and Eilis (and Lizzie the dog) are the most welcoming, friendly and helpful hosts. Eilish's cooking was first class and being able to sit beside the fire in an armchair while reading the paper and having a drink was like being at home. The little extras provided really added to our stay, the packed lunch and flask of tea for the climb, the certificate of achievement, the electric blanket on our bed, the celebratory drink. We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone and will definately be returning in the future for another relaxing and peacful weekend.
