In the heart of the Kingdom of Kerry, by the Caragh River, lies the Glencar Resort Hotel. Unspoiled by the passage of time, this 350 year old establishment is as old as the trees surrounding it. The Hotel boasts panoramic views of valleys and woods; including the MacGillicuddy Reeks, home to Carrauntoohil, Ireland’s highest mountain. Today these mountains are considered a National Heritage Area and are climbed by hundreds of people every year, from every corner of the world.
The Kerry Way, Ireland’s premier long distance walking route, winds past the Hotel grounds. This offers easy access to many more small walks with which to explore the wild Kerry countryside. The resort is perfectly seated within walking distance of Blackstones River, giving anyone who visits an opportunity to fish for wild Irish salmon or trout. The Hotel enjoys the distinction of being the oldest and one of the greatest fishing houses of Ireland.
With all this, the Hotel itself is surrounded by stunning garden grounds; a quaint picnic area and beautiful horses grazing right outside our doors. Inside sit two warm and hospitable pubs, a championship size snooker table and a restaurant on-looking the imposing Reeks and the breathtaking landscape of lower Glencar. The Glencar Resort Hotel presents the optimal location for exploring all that the Kingdom of Kerry and Glencar has to offer, creating a relaxing retreat or an adventurous outing. We ensure a pleasant and memorable stay.
