Arrived hungry and thirsty. Didn't have to wait long for service. A lovely blonde girl with plaits served us. She was very efficient and pleasant making us feel very welcome. We had a lovely lunch and loads of tea. We left ready for the afternoon exploring Malin Head. Would highly recommend this tea room.

This is a jewel of a place. Even the details are special. Check out the tea cups! Breakfasts were generous and delicious. Sonia is so welcoming and helpful. She made accommodation for our surprise family visits. She even took a trip to the "take-away" for a quick dinner for us. We felt we were staying at our friendly cousin's place... More

Pulled in to the Carpark to head for the waterfall walk beside the Glen House. Seeing the tea room and toilets the other half headed over for a cuppa. The tea room was nicely decorated in paste colours. We ate in the conservatory area, there is a area in the house for extra seats on busy days. We went for... More

We stayed at the Glen House on a golfing trip to Ireland. The entire area is very beautiful Sonya did a great job of looking after us and treated us very well Its about a 10 minute drive to Ballyliffen Golf. The villagee/town of Clonmany offers lots of great local pubs nearby

Could not recommended this place more highly. Stayed here on more than one occasion and will return. Sonia, the owner, is just fantastic and could not be more welcoming. Beautiful surroundings and breakfast to die for. Gr8 little tea room and nothing is any trouble. Do yourself a favour and pay a visit..

From the moment you arrive at The Glen House you feel the warm Irish welcome. Sonia could not be more welcoming and the setting is beautiful. The rooms are immaculately clean, beautifully decorated, with stunning views. You are made to feel very much "at home" and that nothing is too much trouble. Well worth a visit.
