“The best holiday accommodation we have ever stayed in, without a doubt.”
Reviewed 3 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

This is the second time the six of us have stayed in the property in the last year. We were looking for accommodation within easy reach of Oldcastle where my 86 year old Dad was born. We also wanted to be able to get to Dublin easily but to stay in a country property, and to find somewhere which would cater for the family age range of 18 to 86. The location of Glenboy was perfect. It also offered a suburb location for visiting the many local places of interest as well as very easy access to Dublin.

Little did we realise though, what a lovely house awaited us. The most comfortable beds ever, the most well equipped and thoughtfully furnished house we have ever stayed in. The decor has obviously been very well planned and the space was wonderful. We had the bonus of house martins nesting in the eaves and the local bullocks eager to watch our comings and goings.
Oldcastle is a very welcoming town, with all the services you'd need, and Owen Traynor's bar serves the best Guinness around, and has the warmest welcome you could hope for.
Last but by no means least was the welcome we received from the Glenboy owners, who couldn't do enough for us. Thank you again.

The hosts were very helpful in every way. There was nothing I would have changed about our stay in Glen Boy! We had everything we needed and more. The property is out in the country side, so peaceful! The village of Old Castle is quaint and met all our desires. The only thing our wifi network kept crashing, the hosts gave us other sites to go to when one crashed.

“Comfortable cottage - wonderful location!”
Reviewed 21 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We were a party of 6 friends, and we all really enjoyed our stay at Glenboy! Very comfy beds, spacious living room and kitchen area, and a truly lovely hostess. The location was perfect - easy to get to from Dublin, and yet nicely tucked away in the Irish countryside. Highly recommend Glenboy to anyone!

“Real Irish Country luxury and hospitality”
Reviewed 12 June 2012 for a stay in April 2012

people found this review helpful

Glenboy County Accomodation really does offer the best of all; privacy; total country relaxation, and the nearby town of Oldcastle (walking distance), all in a glorious converted barn that has great character, but all creature comforts. If you want to experience 'real Ireland' this is the way to do it, from curious cattle at the fence eager to check you out, to Owen Trainer's Pub, where you have to walk through the small general store and through the single door to the bar behind to get a pint! But to head back to the accomodation at the end of a day exploring is to retreat to warmth and comfort that is second to none, whilst being homely. In fact, I thought the place was so comfortable I was not keen to leave it for day trips! I would have been happy to sit in front of the fire and soaked up the ambience. Hosts Karen & Pat are great and make you feel very welcome and looked after, whilst allowing the privacy one looks for on a holiday this. In a nutshell, I would recommend Clenboy to anyone who wants an authentic country Irish getaway.
