Welcome to Glanleam

A warm welcome awaits you at Glanleam – may you be a guest at the historic Bed & Breakfast or at one of Glanleam’s beautiful Holiday Homes or a daytime visitor to the vibrant estate and wild sub tropical gardens.

Originally Glanleam was home to several generations of Knights of Kerry, who were landlords of Valentia Island.

Today Jessica and Eoin O’Donoghue, their two kids and grandmother Meta live in this heavenly place, where untouched nature, wild sub tropical gardens, rich farmlands, coastal ruggedness, sheep, ponies, chickens, geese, ducks, cats, dogs, donkeys, many wild rare animals, a lighthouse, ancient healing energy points, a kids adventure trail and a walled garden all have their special place.

Glanleam is just five minutes’ journey from the famous RING OF KERRY, a minute off the WILD ATLANTIC WAY, close to Knightstown on beautiful VALENTIA ISLAND, at the beach – Glanleam Beach, a great base to visit the legendary SKELLIG ROCKS and in the best DARK SKYS RESERVE to go stargazing.

Guests of Glanleam may stay in the luxury COUNTRY HOUSE BED & BREAKFAST or in one of its comfortable HOLIDAY HOMES.

At Glanleam just relax, unwind, de – stress, meditate, practice mindfulness, spend that precious time with your family and loved ones, have a get together with friends, get active, dare to go for a swim in crystal clear, refreshingly cool water at the sandy beach, visit the healing energy points, discover the Pirates treasure chest and the Fairy Tree, watch the waves crashing on the rocks at the lighthouse, or , enjoy the magnificent view from the KNIGHT OF KERRY MONUMENT or wander for hours through the wild subtropical gardens. When you have done all of this and your holiday is not over yet, why not venture out and discover the beautiful island of Valentia.
