Ms Teresa Kennedy
Glenview is a simple working farm located just two kilometres south of Ballinamore in County Leitrim, specialising in providing bed and breakfast accommodation.
Glenview in Ballinamore, County Leitrim is a working farm guest house open all year round. The house is perfectly located besides the Shannon-Erne Waterway, which links Ireland’s two longest rivers, setting the scene for a relaxing and enjoyable holiday. Glenview has been renovated and extended several times and now has six ensuite guest bedrooms, each centrally heated. There is the option for B&B or evening meal with bed and breakfast. There is a fully licensed restaurant and bar for guests. The guest house also boasts a lounge with TV, DVD and open log fire along with extensive gardens and a private hard tennis court. Glenview also has a number of self-catering holiday homes open all year round and within a two minute walk of the main house.
Coarse and pike angling holidays on the lakes of Cavan and Leitrim have always been a big factor in Glenview’s spring and autumn trade with special facilities for bait, equipment and boat hire available. Expert advice is available for anglers arriving in Ballinamore for the first time.
County Leitrim, and in particular the welcoming town of Ballinamore, has become a short-break base for motorists touring around Ireland. The Kennedy’s are heavily involved in classic and vintage cars clubs and are delighted to welcome and help visitors in creating a successful touring holiday.
Glenview Folk Museum is Leitrim's only museum and is on site with a superb private collection of over 7000 antique, historical and novel items ranging from pre-famine Ireland. There is an impressive array of farm yard equipment, a collection of horse drawn agricultural machinery, and a thrasher, plus a street scene with a number of reconstructed shops and a pub, all stocked, jam-packed with an assortment of products and equipped as they would have existed in the past.
