What our guests say

Read some reviews about us in

  • Food was brilliant, staff and owner were incredibly friendly making this outing an amazing experience. All three of us ordered different mains and desserts from the menu, all the food was cooked to perfection and came in large portions at a low price. Dessert was to die for and the new iced coffee is top class. 100% will come again and I'd highly recommend it to everyone.
  • We came across this guesthouse while out for a spin and wanted some lunch. Luckily this was its first day opening after Covid lockdown. The choice of food was very good and even the fussy eaters should find something they will like. The squid rings for starters were lovely. I had the beef lasagne for mains. Deserts were homemade and out of this world!!! Worth a visit if you are out this part of the world.
  • If you are driving the Wild Atlantic Way, around Carna don’t miss this amazing spot! Views are stunning, food is next level, service was friendly and warm. We will be back, thank you!
  • The owners and staff at Glynsk really are extremely pleasant, and genuinely , and may I stress genuinely, welcoming and friendly. It truly is a pleasure to eat there, and my wife and I both very much enjoyed our visits there, both for the excellent food and for the pleasure of being in the company of such nice people.
  • Family friendly, excellent food, country treat. We have visited this restaurant 3 times in the past year and have never been disappointed. Customer care is a priority and the food is just as good. Nothing seems to be a problem. as a family of 6 we look to share plates at times and mix starters and main courses to keep everyone happy. No issues here. Portions were good and food excellent. fish dishes were wonderful and reasonable. We will be back.
  • We had the pleasure of visiting Glynsk house for lunch today. We dropped in whilst passing and were warmly welcomed. We were very impressed with the high standard of Covid 19 hygiene measures in place and felt totally at ease. The waitress was a lovely girl who made our visit most enjoyable . She told us the specials from the outset and took good care of us. The food was delicious and the price very reasonable. We would highly recommend. There is also a lovely craft shop there. We look forward to returning again.
