About Monica Neenan

Seán and I invite you to relax and unwind in our traditional farmhouse cottage among mature gardens in picturesque rural area convenient for touring south and west of Ireland. We have been 4 star approved by Fáilte Ireland (the Irish Tourist Board) since we tastefully restored the cottage in 2005 and began welcoming guests. The house and farm have been in the family since Dermot Sullivan of Ballykennedy bought land in Broadford including the land now containing Glenview Lodge in 1685 from John Anketel.

We live just down the road so we are always available. As I have great memories of spending my childhood in the dwelling house helping out in the farm, milking cows, feeding the hens, heading off for school every morning and other wonderful memories it is our privilege to be able to share it with people from all over the globe. You will be made very welcome.

With kind regards,

Beautiful country location, great Irish experience

  • 4 of 5

My friend Sue and I really enjoyed staying in this old lodge with lots of family memories and filled with books about Irish history. I recommend this stay especially for people with an interest in history. Monica and Sean were very welcoming hosts. We accepted the additional package which provided a lovely breakfast basket with Monica's delicious bread and a talk about history and an Irish coffee making demonstration by Sean. We were really impressed by his balanced discussion of the hardest times in Irish history. And the Irish coffee was the best! The countryside is wonderful and within striking distance of many points of interest.

Thank you, Monica & Sean - from Susan and Julia

Quiet,relaxing,cosy holiday Feb 23-March 2 2018

  • 5 of 5

Monica and Sean made us very welcome and it was lovely to stay in their farmhouse. We were warm and cosy and the wood burner was welcome after our days out. :)

The weather was bitterly cold whilst we were there but we had wall to wall sunshine and were able to see many beautiful sights including the Dingle peninsula,the Cliffs of Moher ,the Ring of Kerry and Cork. All fabulous.

The day we left Monica and Sean came to say goodbye and Monica gave us some of her DELICIOUS homemade chocolates ! To die for !

Thank you to them both and we would certainly recommend Glenview Lodge to anyone who would like peace,quiet,and generous hospitality :)

  • 4 of 5

This beautiful farmhouse is located in the most beautiful countryside and had amazing views. Sean and Monica were the sweetest! Monica had homemade Irish Soda Bread waiting for us and it was delicious! They were very helpful and accommodating to anything we needed. Their home is beautiful, comfortable and very clean. Upon our departure Monica gave us a box of her wonderful homemade chocolates. They were incredible. We would recommend anyone to stay here. We look forward to our next trip to Ireland.
