See what some of our guests have to say about their experiences

  • I stayed at the Glenbeigh Hotel for 11 nights in a fabulous, fresh, comfy room. Marie and Kilian aka "Chef" were very accommodating, especially when it came to breakfast - we could have it from 6am up to 12pm if we wanted! They treated us like family; my wife was very happy with the service and they had great patience with our children. Yes their food was very tasty & fresh and most of all, hot,,, and reasonably priced. The music was excellent and all the staff were so helpful always had a smile on there face and lots of laughs! When we go back over the ocean again there is no question about where we are going.

  • Every year me and my dad come to Glenbeigh and nearly every night we come here for food and a great afternoon. The staff are so polite and the service is excellent. You could come here with your family and friends, and I would definitely recommend the Olde Glenbeigh Hotel.

  • We have been coming to this wonderful old style hotel for many years. The food is beautiful and the craic is mighty. The staff are very helpful and courteous and there's always a warm welcome for us. I highly recommend the Olde Glenbeigh Hotel for a visit... go on you deserve it!

  • My husband and I held the day after our wedding at the Glenbeigh Hotel. From the minute I got in touch with Marie, it was such a lovely experience. She organised music for us, and made sure to have stocks of the drinks that I thought our friends and family would like. When it started to rain about an hour before our barbecue was due to begin, they shifted the whole show indoors without the slightest hitch, and even though it was a shame that our guests didn't get to enjoy the stunning gardens, they had a gorgeous time in the quirky, authentic, and comfortable interior. It's exactly the way it should be, and they have modernised the place without sacrificing any of its character. Marie and Kilian sorted out accommodation for a load of our guests, and nothing was too much trouble. They drove guests and make-up artists around the village, every time my hand was empty, one of them was putting a drink into it. I couldn't say enough good about the whole experience from start to finish. It's the most welcoming place you could wish to go.

  • We have been coming here for many years. The people, the food, the accommodation, and above all, the friendly welcome and the craic. The hotel is one of the oldest in Ireland. This is a gem on the Ring of Kerry.

  • Absolutely love this place. It has a real warm, cosy feel to it as soon as you go through the door. The staff are brilliant; so friendly and helpful. Rooms are beautiful and the food... well once you try it you will definitely be back for more. Easily 5 stars in my eyes.

  • We had a fantastic stay for 2 nights. Enjoyed great food, wine, music and dancing. An "olde world" experience on the ring of Kerry. Warm and welcoming staff. A very easy hotel and bar to walk into and feel part of the community. Stunning scenery all around. We will be back.

  • I can't say enough about this place. Every year we go down the service is just outstanding. Marie and Kilian and all the staff are always so welcoming. The food is just delicious. There is a great atmosphere and you are in the area this place is a must see. You won't be disappointed.

  • One of the best for service great food and a pleasant place to enjoy a drink. Lots of locals and strangers and all with a smile and and easy to have a chat in this village of Glenbeigh. I heard that they have live music and craic most nights, so this the spot to be, on those long winter nights.

  • We recently had our wedding at The Olde Glenbeigh Hotel. Words cannot fully describe how amazing it was. The professionalism, fun and attention to detail shown by Marie, Kilian and all the staff was second to none. The settings for both the ceremony and the party/BBQ in the gardens was truly spectacular. So many great places for photographs. A truly unique and beautiful spot. We look forward to coming back year after year to celebrate our wedding anniversary.
