O'Driscoll's B&B is easily the nicest B&B in which I've ever stayed. It was immaculate and very comfortable. The bathrooms had recently been updated. Estelle was a delight. (Her "Sparrow Sanctuary" in the garden is one I idea I will replicate in my own garden. Her French Toast is to die for...really! Glin is a quiet little town on the...

We are still talking about our stay at this B&B - everything was wonderful: Estelle's graciousness, the wonderful sun room, the beautiful garden, the magnificent breakfasts, the comfy beds, the wonderful town. I will definitely be back! Estelle helped us plan our routes, and gave us great advice on driving - which I really appreciated. She had wonderful books for...

We stayed in some lovely houses during a recent holiday round South and West Ireland - but none better than this. The beds were large and comfy, the situation quiet, the power shower was hot and very 'more-ish' (which explained the note about "No more than 5 minutes, please". The place was spotless and Charlie the dog, friendly, well-mannered, and...

Estelle welcomes you to her wonderful B&B with tea and cakes in the sunroom, overlooking a serene and well-manicured back garden. She has a beautiful home, and is a delightful host. You feel like a long-time friend rather than a guest! After a harrowing (some who were there might say near-death) experience at the cave in Doolin, the likes of...

We visited Estelle again this year and received a great welcome and her rhubarb tart and ice cream was a wonderful welcome to our stay. Nothing is too much trouble for Estelle, she has lots of local knowledge and if she doesn't know she will put you in the right direction to find out. She even helped me find the...

I recently spent a night at O'Driscoll's in a family room with my husband and our 13 year old son. Our experience could not have been nicer. We arrived in Glin at around 9:00 a.m., after an overnight flight to Shannon, and Estelle was kind enough to make sure our lovely and comfortable room was ready for us then. She...

Estelle's B&B is a wonderful place to stay. The tiny town of Glin is postcard-beautiful, and the grand River Shannon is barely a block away. Our welcome was warm--and delicious! Estelle served us warm apple pie (the best l've ever had) and tea, which helped us relax after a long drive. Our room was warm and comfortable, and the breakfast...

Cannot recommend O'Driscolls B&B highly enough. Stayed with Estelle for a long period of time working away from home and really enjoyed my stay. Rooms are very comfortable and breakfasts are something to look forward to. A big welcome waiting every time I called and nothing was too much trouble. If you're gonna stay anywhere near the Shannon, make sure...

During our recent 2-week stay in Ireland, my daughter (21) and I stayed at seven B&Bs: without a doubt, O'Driscoll's was the best! Estelle, our host, was friendly, gracious, surpassingly competent and informative. She tuned in immediately to what kind of experiences we sought, and made the suggestions and connections necessary for us to gain those; with her help, we...

We spent two nights either side of a Saturday wedding and cannot speak too highly of Estelle's hospitality. In addition to the fantastic breakfasts, she gave us coffeee and apple pie on our arrival and more refreshments next day before we set off for the wedding as she said it would be a long time before the wedding reception. When...
