After spending an unforgettable two day stay in Glenlo Abbey, if there was one sentence to describe Glenlo it would be "attention to detail with fantastic staff " Our room overlooked Lough Corrib, the room was elegant, spacious and comfortable. On arrival there was a welcome card, a box of macaroons, bottled water from organic lands which was replaced everyday, Orla Kiely toiletries in the bathroom. Everything you would need in your room was there, with a turn-down service in the evening with chocolates. The hotel is situated on 138 acres of land, with a golf course and a driving range. Although not a golfer we took the two complimentary bicycles and cycled around on the cycle track to the shores of the lake, the surroundings are beautiful. The breakfast room is a beautiful, elegant room, breakfast is freshly cooked to order, the buffet had an array of fresh fruit, breads, freshly baked scones, meats, fresh juices, cake etc. and was laid out exceptionally well with an option of making your own Bloody Mary with Dingle gin! The quality of the food produce is of a very high standard. Breakfast is an elegant affair with silver teapots and tea strainers, a long leisurely breakfast with the newspaper is a real treat. A stay in Glenlo Abbey is not complete without dinner in the Pullman restaurant. Dressing up, collecting the train tickets at reception and entering into the magical and elegant world of the Orient Express, fabulous! In the evenings the French room for drinks with it's open log fires and the piano playing in the background is like travelling back in time. If you want an experience of style,comfort, good food, old world charm with friendly staff and wonderful service then Glenlo Abbey is not to be missed! I will certainly be returning.

Such a friendly elegant hotel! Top-notch staff and service. Excellent food. 1st rate accommodations. Terrific golf course. Beautiful surroundings. Ideal location. And did I mention they have a driving range, archery lessons, and an "Introduction to Falconry" class? This hotel was perfect for our extended family gathering -- including teens and grandparents. There was truly something for everyone! Delicious breakfasts and dinners, fun movie nights, and the evenings spent by the fire were magical. The staff were friendly and really went out of their way to make sure we had a great time. The Glenlo Abbey Hotel is the sort of place that you want to recommend to all your friends.

This is a beautiful hotel set on stunning grounds. Lovely walks around the area & only a 5 minute drive from the centre of Galway. The room was spacious & really comfortable. I really liked the framed scenic photographs on the corridors & the French Room at night. The house pianist was a lovely touch & the staff were kind , witty and patient. You could tell they were used to dealing with high maintenance clientele in a most professional & friendly way. There were a lot of "characters" there during our stay & the staff were always smiling & always ready to help. The breakfast room is gorgeous & the silver engraved teapots etc are really pretty. The breakfast itself is nice & the meat is well sourced but apart from the setting it didn't stand out - definitely not as 5 star. Omelette was rock hard, scrambled eggs runny, no decent brown bread & no porridge...but to be fair the fruit was really fresh & varied & the pancakes were also really tasty so we had a better experience on our second morning. I would definitely return to the hotel as I'd love to try out the Pullman Restaurant.

This was a comfortable place for my family to stay for two nights. My parents had a room, and we stayed in another with our 5 year old. They were accommodating to her, although I wouldn't think of it as a family hotel. There is a lot of room to run and play, but we had to keep her very quiet so as not disturb the golfers, and the property is mostly made up of a beautiful golf course. The rooms were clean and nice. The regular dining room is not priced well for a family with a child, but dining in the bar was just fine. Close enough for us to Galway. The highlight far and away was the falconry experience they booked for us. It was magical.
