Our family loved staying at the Abbeyglen Castle. We took a walking tour right out the door of the castle through Clifden and Sky Road the surrounding area. The staff at this hotel makes it from the porters to the registrar, to the owner to the waitstaff, all were so friendly and welcoming. Food and atmosphere were excellent.

We truly enjoyed our time here in Ireland and at our stay at Abbeyglen Castle Hotel. Everyone was very nice and remembered who you were when you came through each time. Lovely area that I would definitely visit again. Our time here was too short!

Stayed here with a few friends and enjoyed Connemara very much. The food here in the Restaurant is fab, Dinner was lovely and so was dessert. Over all this hotel is very dated and rooms are very dark. It seems to be suited to American Tourists. Would I Stay here again. No. Would I eat here again, Certainly. Yes.

We were keen to stay in a castle during our Ireland trip, and we chose this place -- thankfully. The place is well located at start of Sky Road (for easy trip), and close to town center as well. Our garden facing room was well appointed and comfortable. The staff was courteous (most of them, not all); especially the wait... More

The Abbeyglen Castle exceeded my expectations, which were quite elevated after watching a promotional video on their website emphasizing the spirited and humorous nature of the staff. The champagne reception, the wonderful breakfasts, the toasty warmth of the turf fires and the blissful soaks in the large claw-foot tub combined to create an experience that, to this day, beckons me...

We had a wonderful stay at this hotel. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. The rooms were clean and the stay included a full breakfast. They had a complimentary Champagne hour in the bar area which included a selection of cheese, salmon and crackers. One of the owners then gave a history of the hotel. The hotel has a... More

Just returned from a long overdue visit to Abbeyglen Castle. Like a good wine, AGC gets better with age. Paul and Brian and their team provide an professional service with excellent food, hospitality, and entertainment second to none. My husband was unwell when we arrived, and they handled this with extreme kindness and consideration. We are so looking forward to... More

We chanced across this accommodation after a long day of driving their sign said special prices today! (they haven't changed in 30 years) anyway it got us in and even though it was way more than we'd been paying (€158 + 12.5%)we accepted. Included was afternoon tea, champagne and canapés plus a three course dinner. However the best surprise was... More
