A short drive from downtown and potentially walkable. However, lighting on part of the road is poor, so driving is recommended. Conor was very thorough and informative upon arrival. Nice country setting. The breakfast was very good. No elevator, so if you get a third floor room, you have to carry your luggage upstairs. Not difficult to do, but be... More

Gleann Fia is in a beautiful setting and the downstairs (especially the sun room) is lovely, but it has its drawbacks. Our group of 12 had a couple of people over 80 and carrying luggage up the stairs was not easy and no one offered to help. Avoid any of the rooms on the third floor. They are small and... More

Rude Hostess, very condescending when asked for directions on the way there and ideas about where to travel the upcoming days. You will need to know your room number at the breakfast table or the Hostess will have a hissy fit.
