Tranquility with the Fairies Beautifully located traditional farmhouse with all necessary amenities. A place to soak up the west Limerick countryside. Thanks Monica and Seán for an amazing stayover this Christmas 2021.

Private, peaceful, traditional farmhouse We (2 + 2) spent a week in Glenview Lodge, an alluring traditional farmhouse, in October 2021. The house is comfortable, well equipped and had everything that we needed for an enjoyable stay. The grounds are large, beautiful and indeed peaceful with the 'fairy trail' being a particular favourite of the children. We will certainly stay again.

Simply serene This was our second stay at the Glenview Lodge - our first was in 2012. This is a charming self-catering cottage surrounded by farm land. It is perfectly peaceful with some of the most stunning views of the rolling hills of Limerick that I've ever seen. Sean and Monica are excellent hosts - they provided us with a few staples (bread, butter, coffee, tea, and milk) to tide us over until we could get to the shop and was a welcome sight to weary travelers when checking in. If you are looking for a place that is conveniently located to Cork, Kerry, Clare, and Galway (all day trips from here) and want some peace & quiet as well, this is the spot for you!

Beautiful haven on a hillside We were attending a family wedding in nearby Springfield Castle, and were in search of nearby accommodation. Sean & Monica were able to accommodate our small group for the few days, and it was a great find. The house is located on a beautiful patch of land, up on a hillside with rolling hill views. The house was really comfortable with everything you could need, 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Sean was a great help in trying to sort out local taxi companies, and when it wasn't possible he even offered to collect us himself. We didn't get to do much exploring as our time was taken up with family and spending time together at the castle but I would highly recommend the house and the hosts.

Lovely cottage in delightful setting Well presented period cottage set in beautiful grounds and charming local area. The owners Sean and Monica are very friendly and helpful, always willing to provide information when approached. The Broadford area is an excellent base for a visit to Limerick County, which is blessed with stunning scenery and offers warm hospitality wherever you go.

Quarantine escape to the countryside. We absolutely loved our stay at Glenview lodge! This was our first trip back to see our family in a year and a half, due to Covid, and we needed a place to quarantine for a week and act as a base for a second week while we visited family. Seán and Monica have created a cosy, family friendly getaway nestled in the Limerick countryside. Our week of quarantine was spent having walks through the fields and woods, visiting neighbouring cattle and horses (who were over the fence), playing table tennis, badminton, card games, and watching the hay baling and wrapping. My children had such a wonderful time. The swings and slide out in the back garden got so much use! We were very happy with the house itself and if there was anything we needed, Seán and Monica were ready to help us. We would highly recommended Glenview Lodge.

Beautiful, restful nineteenth-century farmhouse This was the most beautiful place. It had all that famous "Irish charm" we were hoping for, incredibly cozy. We loved it so much we spent one day of our ten-day vacation just hanging around the lodge and exploring the property. The space out back gives a perfect view of the mist rolling over the hills in the morning - indescribably lovely. Sean and Monica were so wonderful, baking homemade soda bread, leaving gifts of chocolate and Irish breakfast tea for us to find upon arrival, and happy to answer any questions we had about things to do or places to see. It was a great location for a restful stay with awesome proximity to the Cliffs of Moher, Bunratty Castle, Blarney Castle, Galway, Limerick, and Waterford, just to mention a few. There's also a beautiful graveyard just up the road dating back to the thirteenth century. Highly recommend, would love to come back!

Peaceful with a sprinkling of Magic! We chose Sean and Monica’s property in order to escape from our daily routines and grind and to explore nature. We got more than we bargained for!Surrounding the cottage are centuries old trees and farms. Birds and game prance, flap and hop as if no one’s watching. Ireland’s history is at your disposal as you explore the immediate surrounding area. But watch out! As you navigate the fairy trail on the property (if the fairies WANT you to find it!), you may be surprised as you walk by a tree on the trail when suddenly one or two pop into and out of existence, sparkling and sprinkling their magical fairy dust around you. Don’t be afraid! The magical fairy dust only intensifies your awareness of some of the most lovely nature that surrounds you! We will be coming back. I’ll post some drone photos so people reading this can see the extent and hard work out into this lovely property. There’s more to it than meets the mind 😉

Nice, quiet location surrounded by glorious countryside Even in winter, Glenview Lodge is picturesque and peaceful, and an ideal location for visiting nearby attractions such as Limerick, Cork and Co. Kerry. The owners are extremely hospitable and helpful, and live nearby if any advise is needed. It can be a bit cold at this time of year (December) ,but once the log fire has been started in the living room it soon becomes warm and cosy. For us, this was a truly special Christmas and we hope we can return in the near future. Thoroughly recommended, especially in spring and summer and, of course, at Christmas time,

Fantastic historic farmhouse, great location, fabulous hosts! Our family of five spent a wonderful four nights at Glenview Lodge. It was our first visit to Ireland, and Seán and Monica made it memorable and superb. The property dates back all the way to the 1680’s but the farmhouse (built in 1865, I believe) is modernized and comfortable inside. It was perfect for our family: a double bedroom for my husband and me, two twin beds in a second bedroom for our adult sons, and a single twin bedroom for our teenaged daughter. Plus, the two and a half baths and full kitchen – and the ping pong table and guitar – were fantastic amenities that we enjoyed as well.The location is superb. We took day trips to Cork, Limerick, and the Cliffs of Moher. Seán and Monica have not only decorated the farmhouse warmly, but they provide TONS of information about Irish history and local trips available to take. They were very welcoming and made themselves available to answer our questions.The best part of our trip was spending an evening with Monica and Seán as we opted for the “Irish Experience” package. I highly recommend any time that you can enjoy their company and stories, as they are lovely people who know the history and the surrounding area so well! Monica actually grew up at the Glenview Lodge as her childhood home... That evening will be a happy memory for our family for many, many years to come.They are a beautiful couple who compliment one another so well: Seán is the history and details person (he also makes an amazing Irish Coffee!) and Monica is also warm and friendly, and a superb cook. I don’t think I will ever find an Irish Stew in the States that comes close to hers. We’ve been spoiled forever… :)We highly recommend Glenview Lodge and truly hope that our family can return there one day. Monica and Seán – we wish you all the best and thank you for your hospitality, and sharing your lovely home with “strangers” who leave as friends.
