Great West Coast Location in Galway

Posted 11-Aug-2015
Pros: The service was outstanding and the grounds are beautiful.
Cons: Air conditioning (however, the weather cools off at night and it was very comfortable sleeping).
Location: We used Glenlo Abbey as our 'West Coast' base. From there we did day trips to the Cliffs, Limerick, and Westport. Worked out perfectly.
Excellent Service, Location and Grounds. From the moment we checked in we felt like we 'belonged' there. The service was outstanding, the staff very friendly and the location was great.

Watch out for no hot water and weddings

Posted 01-Aug-2015
Pros: Lovely rooms, lovely breakfast, lovely location.
Cons: Hot water should be available for all. And guests from the wedding and the music from the weddings should take into consideration other guests
When I stay in a four or five star hotel, i expect hot water for my shower and I expect that I can sleep.We had neither on our stay. A large wedding ran up and down the hallway and played loud (and terrible American 60s music) until the wee hours with no one responding to the request for quiet. And in the morning, maybe because of same, we had cold showers. Not what we expected at all.

Beautiful hotel and very handy to Galway City.

Posted 29-Jul-2015
Pros: The lovely surroundings and the luxury of the hotel itself.
Cons: Very little.
Location: Got a taxi into Galway City which was lovely, so location very handy.
Really enjoyed our stay at Glenlo Abbey Hotel - and what an experience to have dined in the original carriage of the Orient Express. Would highly recommend everything from the food to the staff and hotel itself. Will definitely be back.

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.

Everything was absolutely marvelous!!!! If I was going to be picky the only thing is that there is no airconditioning and it got hot in our room. But it is definitely a must!!!!!

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.
