The Abbeyglen Castle hotel was to be a special treat for us and we weren't disappointed. A most enjoyable stay. The room was perfect with a wonderful outlook and the staff were very friendly. The complimentary afternoon tea of scones/jam/tea and the history talk by the host while drinking complimentary champagne prior to dinner was very appreciated. Thank you.

Where to start with The Abbeyglen? There is an awful lot to like about this Hotel, but its definitely let down by a few things that disappoint. We stayed here a couple of months ago as we had some business in Clifden over the weekend so we decided to turn it into a minibreak and treat ourselves and stay on... More

The innkeeper is simply a delight and you must stay at the castle to meet, drink and sing along with him. Fantastic soaking tub, delicious hardy breakfast and beautiful grounds. The hotel is walking distance to several shop and restaurants.

We stayed here in June. It was one of our favorite spots. The hotel was everything and more than we hoped for.The town of Clifden was our favorite of all the places we stayed.The staff were really great and made us feel very welcome.

Abbeyglen is beautifully situated and has great views of Clifden and the sea. Brian and staff provide a warm welcome with afternoon tea (complimentary scones and tea/coffee) and an evening reception of bubbly (generous refills) and a talk on the history of the castle. We had dinner the first night - they made a vegan dish especially for us. Excellent... More

There's so many good things about this hotel. From the outside it looks fantastic and is set is some wonderful grounds, very beautiful indeed. It is located about 5 minutes walk outside of Clifden, which is brilliant as it means it has it's own carpark and is also very easy to find. Inside the hotel the layout and furnishings are... More

This was one of several hotels we visited while on our trip to Ireland. While we found staff at all our hotels to be friendly and helpful, the hospitality at Abbeyglen was by far the best. We were treated like friends rather than hotel guests and the staff went above and beyond to assist us with finding our way around... More

This is a real castle in a lovely setting. Have your photo taken sitting on the throne they place at the entrance! The rooms are nicely furnished, and it's truly fun to stay here as Brian and Paul make a special effort to know every guest and make them feel welcomed. They hold a champagne reception every evening and their... More

We visited the Abbeyglen for a "look" as we were based at the Station House. We had lunch which mainly consisted of sandwiches etc. which suited and it was lovely and reasonable. The decor takes a little getting used to but overall we found the hotel to be quiet charming. We loved the parrot at reception who was great fun... More
