Irish Breakfast

Healthy Homemade Recipies

A good day begins
with a good Breakfast

Breakfast at Glebe Country House offers a wonderful variety of traditional, homemade, & locally sourced breakfast favourites and fresh, healthy options. We are supplied with fresh lightly pasteurised milk from the family farm and source organic and free range products as often as possible.

We know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and at Glebe Country House we have set ourselves the challenge of also making it the best meal of the day.

We provide homemade brown and white soda bread, homemade jams, locally produced honey and smoked bacon. We like to make real tea and we serve our coffee in Café Tierre pots.   We ask guests to help themselves to cereal, fruit salad, cheese, organic yogurt and prunes from the sideboard while we are preparing their choice from the cooked Menu. Our homemade buttermilk waffles with Canadian Maple syrup are world renowned.

Served from 08.30 am to 10.00 am

Its about 10 mins from the n71 at bandon, and its 15 mins from kinsale. The house is old and is beautiful It had lovely gardens and great seized bedrooms.The beds are made for sleeping a sleep of the gods, so comfy. The decor is a collection of varied types of furniture that just fits beautifully with the house. Gill, the owner is a really lovely person that wants to do all she can to make your stay a happy one. The Breakfast was lovely and what a choice. I would highly recommend Glebe house and will definitely be back ."

  • "A friend booked us into this B&B, and we had absolutely no idea what she had booked. Muchas Gracias to Clare because she scored a home run bases loaded. This old house has great rooms, great gardens, great breakfast. They even washed and dried my clothes. Our hostess Jill couldn’t have been nicer. I particularly loved all the art around the house. I could go on and on, suffice it to say that it is by far the best B&B I have ever stayed in during my long years of travel."
