Golfers paradise!

Posted 07-Dec-2014
Pros: The staff! Everyone was keen to ensure our stay was a happy one.
Cons: Beware what looks like a 'Welcome tray'! It's all chargeable (just stopped hubby from helping himself to the wine)!
Location: Situated near Galway City, with plenty of shops and eateries, the hotel is in a lovely quiet location. It's also not far from the Wild Atlantic Way!
Not that we actually play golf but, it has to be said, the course was beautifully situated and managed. The hotel was very comfortable with a variety of dining options. We didn't have a bad meal during our stay. The staff were welcoming and happy to help with any requests they could. We certainly got the impression that our comfort was high on their list of priorities! Situated close to Galway City and all the buzz of a highly cosmopolitan location, we were there in time for the christmas market. Plenty of restaurants and shops to be explored.

Historic and elegant hotel

Posted 20-Oct-2014
Pros: The setting, the history, the food, the service. All were exactly as advertized and made the ex[erience memorable
Location: You can fish, golf, walk, eat and see the beauty of Ireland
We booked the hotel at short notice and were not disappointed at all. Everything associated with the stay was perfect. They even accommodated an additional night and charged the same on-line rate

Nice but improvements needed in dining room

Posted 03-Oct-2014
We enjoyed our 2 night stay here. Our priorities are cleanliness, security, comfort, quiet location and the hotel fared well in most areas especially security and location. Cleanliness: the rooms seemed tidy but concerns arose in the dining room where breakfast is served daily. On our first morning during breakfast, we saw a staff member drop the lid of the orange juice dispenser on the floor and replace it without washing it (eww!). On our second morning (and only after concluding our own meal) we saw that the cutlery left on the table during the course of a clients' meal was simply repositioned on the same table and reused for the next clients at that table (ewww!). These slips weren't done by our waiter, who seemed very meticulous. All the same, it's clear that the dining staff require closer supervision/training on food service health and safety as these misses seem like obvious and unnecessary faux-pas. The food itself was very good, coloured only by the questions generated (naturally) from what we witnessed. Other than that, all staff were well-informed, pleasant and attentive - this is especially true of the staff at the front desk. The original elements of the building are beautiful and the views are stunning.

We enjoyed our stay at Glenlo Abbey. It is a beautiful location and very convenient to downtown Galway. I would highly recommend this hotel--not least for the quality of staff, who are helpful, courteous and professional.
