Very comfortable, and run by Maureen McCleary, this b&b is fine. All is good in the room, and for b"fast. It is far enough from town to be quiet, but also not walkable into town.....which for me is the only unfortunate thing.

My wife and I stayed here during our honeymoon in Ireland & Scotland. When we arrived, Maureen greeted us very graciously. We felt very welcomed. Our room was clean, spacious, and even had a skylight. This B&B had slightly more of a hotel feel, but still maintained the traditional B&B hospitality. The B&B was a little distance from local 'downtown'... More

Our group of five ladies from the US found this bed and breakfast to be quite nice. Nothing fancy but clean, comfortable, with large rooms and comfortable beds. The breakfast was well done.

My husband and I absolutely loved this B & B. The owner, Maureen, was very welcoming and gracious. Everything was very clean, and the bed was comfortable, The WiFi was the best we had during our time in Ireland. The breakfast was wonderful, with several different options. I'd highly recommend this place.

Only one night here, as the only guests of the house. Large beroom, but small, narrow bathroom for room 6. Where do the B&Bs get such small sinks?? Hard to adjust the heat, could use an electric blanket. Great breakfast.

We loved staying here for a few nights on our honeymoon. The owner was so welcoming and kind. The room and bathroom were excellent and spacious, unlike many of the other places we had stayed at. The breakfast was delicious and we had a beautiful view. Highly recommend.

We stayed at Glencairn House as it was one of the only places with free rooms. It turned out to be a bargain - and a wonderful place! Glencairn House has free parking and a very nice breakfast is included. The owner recommend a place to have dinner which was marvellous!
