Hi I stayed here recently and thought this was a lovely place. Highlights were fabulous fluffy pancakes with fresh strawberries, plums and natural yoghurt - really tasty and good coffee! Also really liked the sun room, really comfortable, loved Freddy the gorgeous cocker spaniel and really recommend O'Shaughnessy's pub for a great Guinness. Recommended B&BSSSSS

There are BNB's and then there is O'Driscolls. I can't rave enough about how wonderful she made our experience of touring Ireland. We stayed there 5 nights, which I would advise anyone to do so you can try each one of her marvelous breakfasts. She was of great help in advising us about ferry schedules and other questions we had, and always went the extra mile to make sure we were comfortable and enjoying our stay. Frankly, she spoiled us for all the other BNB's we stayed at. I can't recommend her highly enough. The whole rest of the trip we talked and marveled about how great it was staying there.SSSSS

One of the best B&Bs we have ever stayed in. Our room and bathroom were absolutely spotless and the breakfast choice, with one of us being a vegetarian, was the best we've ever had. Estelle is a wonderful hostess - nothing too much trouble and when we arrived we had tea and home made rhubarb pie in the very pleasant guest lounge with views of the lovely garden. Estelle is very friendly and knowledgeable of the local area. Glin has some good walks and is a great base for exploring the area and within easy reach of Killarney, Ring of Kerry, Dingle etc for a day trip. We can't recommend O'Driscolls highly enough.SSSSS

Estelle O'Driscoll's B & B was the highlight of our visit to Ireland and well worthy of a second visit, should we go again. The accomodation is clean, quiet, comfortable and well appointed. The breakfasts are gourmet standard and portions, if anything, are excessively generous. I asked for half portions and still ate twice what I have at home because the quality is irresistable.
The personalised hospitality is exceptional with additional touches that are unique, e.g. Home made pie or scones and jam are presented with afternoon tea, if one is in, and it is all just part of Estelle's generosity and amazing "service."SSSSS
