On arrival, we were brought in for complimentary tea and scones in the bar. Our spacious, superior room was fantastic, Decorated in the style of the hotel, four poster bed, gas fire, sofa and 2 big windows overlooking the grounds at the back. Bath was amazing. Massive, stand alone claw bath. I'm a bath person so if nothing else this... More

We took a trip that included night stays at 4 star castle hotels around Ireland. This one was our favorite. The service was great, the food was wonderful, the staff was nice and welcoming, our room was huge! We had a room with a working fireplace and sitting area attached to our bedroom and the huge bathroom with a jacuzzi... More

We arranged a 5 day all inclusive stay for two with a room upgrade (very important for my wife). Packages are the only way to go with Abbeyglen as room only plus dinner is expensive. This wonderful hotel is a combination of the old and the new. Long-term staff who know everything combined with new and trainee staff that know... More

My boyfriend and I got engaged in the Abbeyglen Castle last year. They looked after us so well, that we decided we would celebrate our engagement anniversary there this year, and hopefully every year after that. We stayed two nights, so we would have time to really experience the hotel and the surroundings. Everyone in the hotel is extremely professional,... More

From start to finish this is well worth everything you would look for in a hotel. Great food ,music and hosts. Visit the town of Clifden and this is a must see even if its just to enjoy the music in the evening. A perfect place to bring a loved one for a romantic stay and an experience hard to... More

I think it has been 5 years since we last visited Abbeyglen Castle Hotel , too long really. We decided to go for their 3 night New Year package. It's not cheap, but you couldn't expect it to be as it was a wonderful stay and we were really spoilt there. Our room was fabulous, really big with a wooden... More

We returned to this amazing hotel for Christmas this year. Again we went for a suite, well worth the extra money, gas fire, massive room with fantastic views. It is an oldie worldie experience which we love. The owners Brian and Paul along with the team of staff are outstanding. The hospital it is incredible, we were greeted like old... More

We were SO disappointed with this hotel. We literally had to buy a candle to make the room smell decent enough to sleep in. The decor was outdated by 3-5 decades. Definitely not a real castle. Roger the bartender was rude to patrons, it was uncomfortable for everyone-- really unnecessary for what's suppose to be a pub setting. We were... More
