About Us

Glanleam is an enchanting old estate. Spellbound by its magical setting of sheer natural beauty the Knights of Kerry made Glanleam their home. Keen botanists, they planted 1000’s of foreign and exotic plants into the already existing woods in Glanleam’s valley, resulting in today’s jungle-like subtropical paradise.

The Boathouse, Gardener’s Cottage, Estate Manager’s House and Hothouse are converted into beautiful self-catering holiday homes. Beyond the woods and gardens, Glanleam’s soft meadows turn into weather beaten fields as they meet the rough southwest Kerry coast stretching as far as the lighthouse at Cromwell Point. Walking here is a nature trail of its own with ever-changing scenery. Also included in Glanleam is a working farm with sheep, geese and chickens (and delicious eggs!), ponies, dogs, bunnies and possibly world’s oldest cat. Glanleam is situated in an unrivalled location, with splendid gardens, a beach, a lighthouse and acres of green fields and dramatic scenery of great natural beauty which combine to make it the perfect place to refresh body and soul.
