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,

Quaint and Cozy Farmhouse in the beautiful Irish Countryside

  • 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.

I cannot recommend Glenview Lodge enough! The lodge itself is charming, comfortable and perfect for a family. The location is perfect for day trips to Cork, Limerick, Blarney and Killarney. Sean and Monica are wonderful hosts and accommodated all of our requests and were always available to answer any of our questions. A trip to Ireland would not be complete without a stay here!

Beautiful, calm, quiet spot.

  • 5 of 5

Glenview is a very comfortable, spotlessly clean house, with wonderful original furnishings and features.

Monica and Seàn are the most delightful hosts, with a wealth of information about the area.

The house had everything one could need and it felt like staying in a real home. We were lucky enough to have beautiful weather and were able to sit outside with the chairs and table provided. It is a good location for visiting the West and South West coasts for day trips and the local walks are lovely. The Neenans have provided a wealth of useful tourist information. All in all a delightful experience and highly recommended.

Exactly what the pictures and description said. It was quiet and we had everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

We flew into Ireland that day so this was our place to learn to drive and recuperate from jet lag. Very quiet and nestled in the hills with farms all around. Monica and Sean answered all my questions about our first plans of sight seeing. Kitchen was well equipped and everything was clean. Monica gave us a box of home made chocolates when we left and they were delicious! Thank you!
