We asked for a table & we were quickly seated. The staff were very friendly & there was a good choice on the menu. The room themselves are fairly basic, could... More

Have been to The Glenside for food before with no complaints. However on 26/04/2015 my opinion drastically changed. Got chicken from the carvery selection and as it was covered in bacon I didn't mind pink on the chickens surface. However during eating myself and my partner found this pink turned to pink/red in the middle/inside. I immediately contacted a waitress... More

The Glenside is known around louth/meath for its fabulous food. Manys a great weddind day was celebrated here also. I've been to a few weddings and stayed over. This is where it all goes downhill. The rooms are very shabby, and not shabby-chic. They have seen much better days. Rooms that smell musty, one near reception especially. Original dark wood... More

Stayed overnight after wedding reception at the hotel. Enjoyed the stay. Staff, room and food very good. The hotel is out of town but Drogheda & Bettystown/Laytown only a few minutes drive. Only 20-25 minutes drive from Dublin Airport.

Welcomed by friendly reception staff, room was fine and a great breakfast rounded off a super stay. Only downside was other guests letting their kids run wild in the corridors after 9 at night and early the next morning. Otherwise great
