Top Class Hotel 2 miles from downtown Galway.

The Irish are really elevating the "country house hotel" experience to an art form. It's something you can't get in the USA, and when it's done well, it makes for a wonderful vacation. Glenlo has a great setting, attentive staff, good food and a golf course. It doesn't get much better than this!

A little stuffy. To far out. Nice if you made it a destination stop. But not traveling thru.

A wedding guest at the Glenlo Abbey Hotel

Posted 13-May-2015
Pros: It's location. The facilities and above all the staff.
Cons: Not applicable.
Location: For golfers it has a 9 hole golf course. Lough Coribb is nearby for fishermen. The City of Galway is about 10 minutes away by car.
My wife and I had a wonderful time staying at this hotel. The staff are very proficient, very obliging and friendly. The food is excellent and the staff in the dining room and bars are very professional and friendly. The views around the hotel are beautiful.

Rated 5 star, but only 4 star at best.

Booked this hotel based on prior experiences at Historic Hotels of Europe and other comparable hotels. This did not match up. We do think they are trying to come up to par and we are in their court. It is a lovely hotel on a lovely, historic location. They just need much more strategic mgmt.

Gorgeous hotel in amazing location

Posted 26-Apr-2015
Pros: The style, grounds and overall look/feel of the hotel.
Cons: It needs an indoor pool!
We loved our stay at Glenlo. It's absolutely gorgeous, and the rooms are nice and big, and incredibly comfortable. We had dinner on the Pullman on our second night. It's a cute, kitschy thing to do. Food is good, not incredible but entirely enjoyable, and the experience more than makes up for it. Would definitely recommend Glenlo and hopefully we will be back one day.

Glenlo Abbey Hotel

Posted 25-Apr-2015
Pros: Sandra was very helpful in suggesting a dinner place, where to shop, etc.
Cons: Beds are getting a tad worn
Location: Galway City at any time. Best to go when shops are open. Martine's Wine Bar was excellent food!
Beautiful grounds and really nice place. Beds were comfy for the most part. Nice view of the Abbey from room and nice walk down to the lake. Wish I had more time to spend there. Staff was excellent. A big thank you to Sandra who went above and beyond. Only draw back was taking taxi into Galway 4 times vice driving.

Beautiful surroundings

The hotel staff was helpful and pleasant. The facility is older but completely comfortable. I did not eat in all the restaurants but the food variety and quality I experienced were very good. I'll go back.
