Nice hotel near Galway

Posted 29-Mar-2018
My wife and I celebrated our anniversary here. We traveled in the off season so it wasn’t very crowded. Hotel had beautiful grounds and food was excellent. Don’t miss out on proper afternoon tea. Close to Galway for all it has to offer.

Nice Hotel

Posted 17-Jan-2018
We stayed at the hotel 3 days for a friend's wedding and we had a fantastic time. The staff was extremely helpful and obliging. The breakfast was delicious and the grounds of the hotel were breathtaking. We are really looking forward to our next trip to Glenlo Abbey and would highly recommend it.

Everything was tremendous.

Absolutely top class service, from the moment we checked in to the moment we left. Every single person working in Glenlo was incredibly gracious and accommodating, with special kudos to Orla at check-in and Eamonn at dining service. The rooms were big and comfortable, and the hotel itself was amazing, with lots of lounge space, peat-burning fires, and beautiful grounds. The breakfast was tremendous, and the location perfect for proximity to Galway and launch-point to the Connemara. Hugely recommended!!!

Very disappointed, 5 star - I don't think so!

Posted 23-Dec-2017 on Hotels
I have stayed at the Glenlo on a number of previous occasions and so I was looking forward to this stay, a much deserved treat. And I must admit my first night lived up to all the expectations......the idyllic setting with the hotel decorated like a scene from a fairytale for the festive season. Much to my disappointment, however, on the second night it was like spending a night over a night club. The hotel was extremelymely noisy. There were guests shouting loudly & trampling about like a herd of cattle. On check out the receptionist initially seem surprised by my dissatisfied comments before finally admitting receiving a number of 'comments' from other guests. Certinally not the type of experience I had expected from this expensive 5 star hotel! My last stay at this hotel, I also now regret recommending it to a work colleague, I hope her experience is more pleasant than mine.

Can’t wait to go back!

Posted 07-Dec-2017
This was the highlight of our trip! This place is stunning, beautifully renovated, and within a few km drive of downtown Galway. We did the falconry and Pullman experience and each were worth every penny. Can’t wait to go back and do golf and high tea next time!!

Disappointed! Hotel looks worn out. Rugs are dirty. Definitely needs a remodel. Breakfast was good. Grounds are nice if you like to golf Not worth the money!
