The peaceful Glen Country House is set on a 300-acre working farm. Situated 25 miles from Cork, the property overlooks Courtmacsherry Bay, with surfing, horse riding and golfing all within a 20-minute drive. Rooms at Glen Country House are bright and airy, decorated in neutral tones with large sash windows looking out onto the rolling countryside. The 5-star accommodation includes super king sized beds (6 ft) and satellite TV in each room, with free toiletries in the en-suite bathrooms. Locally sourced ingredients go into the freshly cooked breakfasts, which range from the traditional full Irish to French toast served with bananas and maple syrup. With a few pubs in the immediate area and even more choice in the large town of Kinsale which is just a 20-minute drive away, guests have many options for eating out. Guests have the opportunity to enjoy sailing and fishing in the nearby estuary. Otherwise, the property’s mature gardens have views that stretch towards Courtmacsherry Bay, and offer the perfect opportunity to relax with a book on the lawn.
