Although our time at this hotel was very brief it was certainly a cozy and enjoyable stay. The rooms were lovely. We really enjoyed the front desk staff! Love that this hotel has a cinema room along with a whole cabinet of movies that you can borrow from to take back to your own room to watch! We had a long drive to get to this fine hotel so we didn't arrive until after dinner time and then left right after breakfast the next morning to continue our journey south. Would have loved to stay another night and explore Galway more!

There are lots of positives about Glenlo Abbey: Friendly and helpful staff, wonderful decor, turn down service, slippers provided and robes, Orla Kiely bathroom soaps, little sweets every night, bicycles available for a cycle to the lake, there is a film shown every night and an itinerary of daily activities in the abbey, they also have falconry facilities available, a games room with Tic Tac Toe, chess and dominoes, there is a piano player every night and the Golf course also looks really good, very comfortable beds, great breakfast buffet and a 24 hour bar. Areas of concern: our room 116 (Abbey Classic King Bedroom) looked out onto the car park which is very busy and noisy in the morning, so a room with garden views would perhaps suit a lighter sleeper better. The omelette at breakfast was not very good and a bit disappointing. We could hear noise from the room next door such as TV and plugging in items in sockets and very slow Wi-Fi/broadband. This is a great hotel and I would recommend it for a visit. If however you are looking to be in the centre of Galway city, this is not the one for you, but it is a gateway to Connemara.

Took my wife for an overnight stay to celebrate a belated birthday and to help her recovery from major surgery. From the moment we arrived I knew I had made a superb choice. The room overlooking the golf course was a delight, a welcome card and bottle of sparking wine greeted our arrival. We dined in the Pullman which from start to finish was a memorable experience and one of the best meals we have ever enjoyed. Every member of staff was both friendly and professional. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel and cannot wait for a return visit. I would like to express my gratitude to all the staff for making this visit such a joy and I know it has certainly helped in my wife's recovery.

We stayed for one night here after visiting the Cliffs of Moher on the way up to Northern Ireland. This was a great luxury accommodation to recharge our batteries. We had originally planned on seeing Galway, but after several days of hiking and driving around the countryside, we decided that this was the perfect place to relax and pamper ourselves a little. The room was very comfortable, the hotel is beautiful and the grounds are lovely. The bar and lounge area, with an excellent piano player, was great. Don't miss out on eating at the Pullman Restaurant! Dining on an original car of the Orient Express is definitely a unique experience - and the food was great too! Book in advance if you want to reserve the older (and more historic) of the two cars.

WOW! We loved this place! My wife, 13 year old daughter and I stayed here July 12 & 13, 2017, as we toured Connemara and Clifden. Room 320, above the reception area was outstanding. We spent our evenings enjoying cocktails in the piano area next to the fireplace listening to wonderful music - Simply a wonderful way to end the day. Cellar bar is also very nice. Walking tour of the property was very enjoyable. Also, the falconry show/demonstration was really a unique experience - Make sure you use your iPhone to take some slo-mo video of the birds. The breakfast room and breakfast, itself, was excellent. The service at this hotel is unparalleled! If all of this isn't enough, you can also enjoy a great game of golf at the course located on the property. Hotel is a short distance outside of Galway. We liked this, as it was away from the hustle and bustle and you could still easily get a cab to and from the city center if you liked. The price we paid was absolutely reasonable for what we received. Can't wait to come back! Garnett
