Perfect haven

Glenlo Abbey Hotel
Lovely Country House Hotel
Lovely country house hotel in beautiful grounds just outside Galway City, overlooking Lough Corrib, with open fires, plaid carpets, and in spite of the grandeur of the decor, a cosy and welcoming feel. Staff were very attentive and helpful. The breakfast was excellent - plenty of choice, and served in an elegant room with sweeping drapes and stunning views. We had dinner in the Railway Carriages that once formed part of the Orient Express, which was a unique experience, and again, with excellent service. However, we all agreed that the food was competent, but not memorable. Our rooms were spacious with big windows, and again, great views, but here I felt the hotel fell down a little bit as the decor was verging on the tired, we had a crack in our bathroom sink which meant it did not drain properly and the bathroom door was so heavy we had to prop it open with a dusstbin! However, we left really relaxed, and well looked after, and would certainly stay here again . There was

Everything and more
Glenloe Abbey was fantastic. Ambience, food, service was everything and more. Beautiful setting, amenities and 'The Pullman" fantastic. Will definitely be returning sooner than later.

Glenlo Abbey Hotel
2nd visit, unchanged over 3 years, awesome.
From the minute you walk into the cosy reception area you are treated very well indeed. The room was overlooking the golf course and river, lovely views although some of the other guests could have been more considerate of their neighbours at 02.00!! It was a short lived commotion. The Pullman restaurant was a fantastic treat, great food, well prepared and imaginatively presented. The location is lovely for long walks around the perimeter of the golf course and surrounding area.
