Best B&B of our Ireland trip!
We stayed at 7 different B&Bs during our 9 days in Ireland and Estelle O'Driscoll's B&B was the most welcoming and hospitable. Highlights include 1 large and comfortable rooms, 2 a warm greeting which included tea and homemade pie, 3 her friendly dog Freddie, and 4 a sunroom that she allowed us to hang out in for several hours. Although Glin is off the beaten path a bit, it is a wothwhile diversion for a comfortable evening to wind down from your travels. SSSSS

From the simple entrance you can't tell what a lovely home is awaiting you inside. Estell is a lovely hostess. Everything is well thought and with a lot of lovely details. You have eveything you need two WIFI networks, tea&coffee in the room, hairdryer, modern clean bathroom, etc. The breakfast was the best we had so far in any B&B and a great variety to choose from. The pub next door was also good and prices reasonable.
I would love to go back and I would definitely recommend this B&B to anybody. Thanks Estell, we will definitely return to Ireland and to your home.SSSSS

Definitely the best B&B on our trip around Ireland! It is beautifully located in the centre of the picturesque village of Glin, and both our rooms and the breakfast room with a lovely view of the garden were furnished and decorated so tastefully. The breakfast was absolutely fantastic -- we're still talking about the waffles and pancakes! A big thank you to Estelle, who anticipated our every wish and did everything to make the stay perfect for us adults and our little son. SSSSS

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
