A word from Owner & Manager, Sonia McGonigle
My Husband, Martin and I are proud to say that 2016 sees us celebrate 11 years in business here at the Glen House and the 250 year anniversary of the house itself.
Having purchased the house from Ms Dorris Russo, which she also ran as a Bed & Breakfast for many years, we carried out a full refurbishment of the original house and added a 7 bedroom extension to the rear. We also added our conservatory to the side, which now is home to our very popular Rose Tearoom.
Since we opened our doors to guests in 2005 the house and business has gradually evolved and we have made a number of new additions to The Glen House. These include a decked area which sits beside the river that flows down alongside the house from The Glenevin Waterfall. This area allows guests to dine alfresco (weather permitting of course!) or to just sit and relax to the sound of the river.
At The Glen House we now have had the pleasure of welcoming people from all over the world.
One of our biggest projects since the refurbishment has been the addition of our Craft Shop & Ice Cream Parlour in 2014. Although only small in size this little shop houses some fantastic locally made arts and crafts. You will find the perfect gift here for that someone special. The shop also stocks Mullins Ice Cream from Co Derry, and offers the perfect treat for big and little kids alike after the walk from the waterfall.
At The Glen House we now have had the pleasure of welcoming people to stay from all over the world. We hope they feel that they have experienced the best of Irish hospitality when they leave us and that The Glen House proved to be a relaxing and comfortable place to spend their days away from lifes usual stresses and strains.
We hope we have the pleasure of meeting new and old faces alike over the coming months, whether you are staying overnight or just calling in for a cup of tea after your walk to the waterfall.
Hope to see you soon,
