Welcome to Glebe Country House

A fantastic option for travellers looking for a quiet stay, in a strategic location, to explore Kinsale, West Cork and beyond.  We offer Warm hospitality with a romantic and relaxed atmosphere.

Our facilities are fully equipped with all the comforts you need, as well as beautiful formal gardens with a Lavender walk, Partier and Rose Garden. We have areas for walks, an enclosed garden for our dog guests, and easy access to the main tourist attractions of Blarney, Kinsale and West Cork.

Under the hospitable ownership of Gill and Caroline, this classically proportioned Georgian Rectory has been providing a restful retreat for guests since 1989, and everybody loves it for its genuine country house feeling and friendliness.

Spacious reception rooms have the feeling of a large family home, and generous, stylishly decorated bedrooms have good bathrooms, fast Internet connection, and tea/coffee making facilities. The Rose Room, on the ground floor, has French doors to the garden.

Set in two acres of beautiful, well-tended gardens (including a productive kitchen garden), this charming old rectory near Kinsale has a lovely wisteria over the front door and it is a place full of interest.

Check in is between 4.00pm and 6.00pm when Complimentary Afternoon Tea is served. Please let us know if you require check in at a different time and we can arrange it.

Enjoy our Georgian Gardens

Our Georgian gardens are a treasure trove worth exploring.  We are blessed with soil that will grow almost anything and a temperate climate helped along by the Gulf Stream.  The sight of the Chilean Flame tree in full bloom against the Cobalt blue sky of a spring day makes the heart sing.  The gardens have been designed to complement the period of the house.  My own favourites are roses and peonies in the borders, and azaleas, magnolias & rhododendrons in the shrubbery.

Our Poly-tunnel is in use all year around, and we use our own Fruit and Veg as much as possible. There is nothing quite like eating sun soaked strawberries straight from the garden.
