Two nights at O'Drscolls B&B - could not be faulted - room, facilities, friendliness, breakfast, location, parking. Everything to the quality of a top- class boutique hotel. Many thanks for a great stay.

NOT TO BE MISSED! We arrived at Glin after a 1-day trip to Galway on our way back home to Cork. It was 5 pm and Estelle welcomed us with a delicious coffee/tea and homemade apple tart with views to her lovely garden. After an evening walk to the River Shannon and around the town of Glin, we returned to a cozy, warm & lovely decorated room. After a good night sleep, we were lucky to taste a delicious breakfast (Estelle has choices to meet any person's preference) with free range eggs, bacon, tomatoes and toast. We then made our way home with a big smile in our faces...

We stumbled upon this as we were looking to get away from the "touristy" area of Bunratty. Estelle met us at the door and was ever so welcoming! We had arrived in Shannon just a few hours earlier and we were quite beat after the overnight flight. She let us check in right away so we could get some rest- but not before offering us a wonderful homemade treat and cup of tea. Our original plan was to stay one night and head on to Dingle. We loved it so much here that we booked a second night. Estelle provided wonderful conversation, sightseeing tips (the hidden gems) and fabulous food. She keeps an organic garden out back and is very eco-conscious. I would definitely make this our first stop again if we go by way of Shannon! In any event, I have fond memories and highly recommend O'Driscoll's. Ironically, 2 years later I became friends with a woman who grew up in Glin and really got a kick out of hearing my story and seeing my photos! Full disclosure:Please note that we traveled in 2009 but May 2011 was the earliest option to choose on this site.

Truely excellent B&B, exceptionally clean and extremely comfortable rooms. Superb breakfast (highly recommend the pancakes!) and Estelle is a wonderful host and very helpful. Hope to return sometime.

i can heartily recommend the warm and cosy welcome you will receive from Estelle in sunny Glin! This bed and breakfast was the perfect start to our trip, clean, warm, friendly and most importantly, she makes THE BEST buttermilk pancakes with fresh fruit and natural yoghurt for breakfast - I searched for a substitute rival breakfast the rest of the way around Ireland and nothing matched up! we would go back to Estelle's in a heartbeat and would not hesitate to recommend a stay with her if you are passing through that way!
