Glengarriff Eccles Review

Fronted by a massive wrought-iron balcony, this stately landmark has looked out over the calm water of Glengarriff's harbor since before the Victorian novelist William Thackeray passed through. If you want a harbor view, ask when booking, as they are the first to go. The pretty building is surrounded by greenery, making this a lovely and idyllic spot. Inside, guest rooms are elegantly designed, with large mahogany headboards, tartan blankets on white comforters, and flat-screen TVs, the one concession to the modern age. The public salons are also traditional in style, with lots of dark woods and deep-red upholstery. A busy passing trade and child-friendly staff bring the place alive.
