Grand-Inn Bar and Bed

The house on Aðalgata 19 consists of 3 separate building structures, the first and northernmost was built in 1897, and is now the guesthouse section of Grand-Inn Bar and Bed. In 1923 KM Lindgreen, a chemist, added an addition to the southern end of the building and created the second door which was to his Chemist/Apotek, which is where the upper area of the bar is today. Ole Bang purchased the Chemists and middle apartment in 1931 and then the northernmost part in 1942 thereby taking ownership of the whole property. In 1956 he built the southernmost end which is now home to the main bar area of Grand-Inn Bar and Bed. Ole and Minna lived in the house during our childhood here in Sauðárkrókur.

Minna often invited friends in for a glass of sherry and a chat - we hope that our guests will feel as welcome as Minna's and will be able to sit back, relax and enjoy a good time with friends.

Glaumbaer

The Glaumbær Farm first exhibition was opened in 1952, but the farm had served as a dwelling until 1947. The old turf farmhouse forms the backdrop for exhibitions focusing on rural life in 18th- and 19th-century Iceland. On the museum grounds at Glaumbær, there are also two 19th-century timber houses, Áshús and Gilsstofa. These are good examples of the first timber houses built in the region. Áshús contains exhibitions and the Tea Room Áskaffi, which serves traditional light Icelandic fare. Full meals are available if booked in advance. Gilstofa, at present, contains the Museum´s administrative offices. Together these three buildings are a powerful reminder of 18th- and 19th-century life in rural Iceland.

Towns & Villages

Society and the economy have many faces. Whereas agriculture is the mainstay of rural areas, the towns depend upon fishing, industry, trade and a range of services, with each village having its own characteristics though they all prove hospitable hosts. 
The availability of food and accommodation and the possibilities at every location for recreation and entertainment make hopping between the villages informative as well as fun.   
In every case, the residents are lively and ready to celebrate.
