My friend and I arrived at Glencar House in the early evening after walking on the Kerry Way. We were hiking the Kerry Way to celebrate turning 50! We had just walked 15 miles from Black Valley. We were both tired and hungry. We had a great room and dinner. After dinner, my friend and I then moved to the cozy bar area and sat by the fireplace while having a few beers. We had a great conversation with a young lady and older gentleman from Switzerland who were in the area fishing. We both had a great night of sleep. After breakfast, we talked to Liam and Eilish about a short cut back to the Kerry Way. The short cut trail was beautiful and along the nearby stream. They were very knowledgeable about the area. Excellent views, food, service, and rooms. I highly recommend Glencar House.
