Tim is a fantastic host and made us feel immediately welcome. We throughly enjoyed our stay in Dundalk. Tim's lodgings are in a great location where you can walk to everything. The rooms are good sized, comfortable and well appointed. We had a nice breakfast every morning, and the staff was very gracious.
I really enjoyed my stay at Glen Gat. The host was really friendly. The room was perfect, new , clean (like a little hotel room). I was there for a one night stay for a wedding in the area so it worked out perfectly for me. I'd recommend this place to others.
