About Us

Glanleam House is an enchanting estate dating from the 1770’s. Spellbound by its magical setting of sheer natural beauty, five generations of the Knights of Kerry made Glanleam their home, each extending the original building, turning Glanleam House into the historic country manor it is today. Rescued by mother and daughter team, Meta & Jessica Keissig in the 1970’s, following extensive restoration today it is an oasis of tranquility set in magnificent sub-tropical garden overlooking Valentia Harbour. The house with a mixture of antique and contemporary furniture and extensive library is your opportunity to escape the norm and live like a knight! Now managed by Jessica and her husband Eoin, they invite you to explore the grounds and working farm which includes sheep, geese & chickens (& delicious eggs!), ponies, dogs, bunnies and possibly the world’s oldest cat!
