Most Comfortable Beds in Ireland

Posted 02-Oct-2017
We travelled through Ireland at all 4 and 5 star hotels and castles for 10 days. Glenlo Abbey had the most comfortable beds! Everything else was excellent, as well. The Reception staff was extremely helpful and personable.

Lovely, Unique Irish resort!

Posted 22-Sep-2017
We were so glad that we stayed at this unique hotel! It's not walkable to downtown which I initially hesitated on, but it's an easy drive and it was so peaceful that I was so happy with our choice! The staff was so friendly, the hotel was gorgeous and comfortable and the food was excellent. I highly recommend dining in the Pullman Car restaurant as well. A bit of a treat but totally worth it for the experience! The only thing the hotel is missing is a fitness center but luckily the weather was nice and they had lovely trails to jog on.

Elegant hotel in Irish countryside.

Posted 21-Sep-2017
Pros: It was beautiful, comfortable and well maintained. The rooms were clean and beds very comfortable. Breakfasts were very nice.
Cons: I cannot think of any improvements.
Location: It is in the country but taxis take one into town. Tour companies pick you up to transport to Conamara and the Cliffs of Moher.
We enjoyed our daily breakfasts prepared in a beautiful setting. The grounds were verdant and well maintained. The sitting areas were elegant with flowers, warm fireplace, candles. A piano played in afternoon. The billiards bar served great meals and cocktails. The staff was professional and very helpful in helping with taxis and any other service required. The abbey was impressive with its arched windows and old stone walls.

Great place to stay!

Posted 20-Sep-2017
Pros: Glenlo Abbey was clean, quite and elegant. The staff was very friendly and the food here was very good.
Cons: Our room was nice but the bed for me was a bit soft.
We really enjoyed our stay here at Glenlo Abbey. We would stay here again in a heartbeat! Had the opportunity to do Falconry and absolutely loved it.

Old world elegance

Posted 30-Aug-2017
Location: Walking and biking, lovely 9 hole gol course. Easy day trips to Cliffs of Morer, Connamara, Aran Islands. An introduction to falconry.
Beautiful old world elegance with updated amenities. Lovely setting on a golf course with panoramic views and walking or biking spaces. Many photo opportunities in the changing light afforded by Irish weather. It is a brief drive into the city, but since a car is the best way to visit rural Galway, this is no problem. There are several great restaurants in town, and wonderful areas to explore within easy driving distance.

Don't mss dinner in The Orient Express

Posted 28-Aug-2017
Pros: Attractive, comfortable, perfect. The Restaurant in the Orient Express.
We booked last minute - very happy. The place is a converted mansion, quite lovely. Room was large, great bathroom, very comfortable bed. Highlight was dinner in the Train Cars. Originals from the Orient Express. Fantastic! Brunch was also very nice - especially because of the gorgeous room. Service was terrific.
