Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Josephine is a lovely host, so is the house. It‘s a great base for an active family vacation. We hiked Croagh Patrick and the Connemara NP, visited Inishbofin Island and Kylemore Abby. The kids loved a visit to the Killary Fjord sheep farm. Speaking of sheep, the B&B place is surrounded by them.

So quiet on the farm. Nature is everywhere around. Josephine did feel us as at home. We started with a stay of one night and ended with 3 nights.Not far from Kylemore Abbey and Leenane , and the National Park. An ideal location,

We spent 5 nights at Glen Valley. Altogether a lovely experience despite the cold wet weather. Josephine is a wonderful host: welcomed us at the end of every day with a roaring fire in the sitting room, scones and tea. Her offer of a hot toddy to help me over the effects of a nasty cold was much appreciated! The walks from the farm are great and our visit coincided with the annual walking festival at Leenane. Great local bars in the village and good food at Leenane Hotel. Would definitely recommend.

Josephine and Joe could not have been more gracious. We were on a Hillwalks walking tour. When Josephine picked us up at meeting point at Lough Inagh we asked how we could hire a cab to visit Kylemore Abbey. She quickly volunteered to take us there right then! Next morning after wonderful Irish breakfast while driving us back to trail head Joe gave us a short course on raising sheep. Our only regret is we didn't spent another day with Joe and Josephine. Highly recomend!

This is a more traditional B and B operating out of a farmhouse and on a working sheep farm located about 3 km off the main road. If you are lucky - as we were - you get to see the farmer and his border collie fetch the sheep from high up on the mountain/hill opposite. Breathtaking. The establishment has been in business a while and most of the furniture looks it. The accommodations are typical of those in converted farmhouses - the bedrooms are rather small due to the retro-fitting of the bathroom which is itself very small. The owners make no concessions to modernity - no television and no wifi - and some of the furniture could perhaps be updated. Breakfast was quite satisfactory and is taken round a large table in the dining room. No credit cards accepted.

We hillwalked to Leenane and after 32km walk we arrived in Leenane and realized that the Glen valley B and B was another 7miles away...not in the center of the town at all.We called the owner and she offered to pick us up which was nice. The house is a little old. The place is dark. The owner was nice but not very warm welcoming. The breakfast was good. The surroundings are nice...horses and poneys. Keep in mind the location if you are walking...quite far from town.

This is a great place if you are looking for a nice secluded place to stay in the Connemara region of Ireland. Josephine the owner is a great host, and the breakfast was exceptional. I would suggest this for anyone.

This house is full of character, history and country charm and sits in a beautiful rural setting. We loved it. It's off the beaten path, and it was worth the extra drive for us, and not that inconvenient. Josephine is a wonderful host - very welcoming, informative and helpful. She has lots of walks in the area to suggest and has a lot of detailed maps of the area and hike books for you to look at. Lively, spirited and delightful person, we thoroughly enjoyed her company and interesting conversations with her. To us it was true Ireland staying at her place. We were there in a blustery weather and every evening when we returned there was a warm fire going in the woodstove waiting for us - such a nice and welcoming touch, a true Irish hospitality. We had a fabulous time staying there and enjoyed visiting Killary Fjord, Leenaun, and Cong. Roundstone isn't that far away, and nor are Ballynahinch and Clifden. Thank you, Josephine, for the fabulous Connemara experience! We will be back!

If you like to get off the beaten path, this is the place for you. After a short drive through the woods, you come upon this lovely little home at the end of the road. Our hosts were very friendly. Had a nice chat with Joe in the evening in the living room. Beds were very comfortable. Woke up to a rooster's crow, which was delightful, and enjoyed a delicious breakfast. Great place for a get-away.

I have been to Glen Valley twice ( 2008 and 2010) and will return again when I can. The innkeeper, Josephine, is as pleasant and sociable as you could want. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the Irish Breakfast is sensational. You are made to feel at home and you cannot help but relax in the serene setting of the farmhouse. I look forward to my next visit.
