Most of the people who stay at Glasha seem to be frequent visitors, returning one more time for Olive O’Gorman’s great hospitality, returning one more time to this beautiful area, so beloved of hillwalkers and hikers. But, no matter how often you have stayed, you will still be blown away by the transformation of the Glasha dining room when you sit down to dinner on your next visit.
What was once a comfortable but domestic space is now a super-cool room of poised elegance, with a patio door out onto the walled courtyard. It’s a stunning makeover but, to tell you the truth, it’s not a bit surprising that Olive should have pulled off such a stylish coup. She is a determined and driven woman, someone who always wants to transcend her best, and her cooking and her house show her determination in action. So, after a big afternoon hike in the hills, peel off the Osprey backpack and ditch the Mendls, and bring on the Comeragh lamb with rosemary, the striploin with creamed mushrooms, and the good red wine.
