This place is one of the best I have stayed in, bar none. Very professional but with the most friendly and welcoming atmosphere. The staff are superb and go out of their way to make attend your every need, without being in your face. The owner Brian works the floor, speaks to everyone and is very complimentary to us ladies....

I don't even know where to begin, when I scheduled my trip to Ireland, I told my travel agent I wanted to spend my birthday in a castle. The one I wanted was not available so she gave two alternatives. I selected Abbeyglen and I could not have made a better selection. When we arrived we were greeted by friendly... More

I have visited the Abbeyglen on a few occasions now and a warm welcome always awaits. Great food and great fun is part of any visit to Abbeyglen. The dessert table is a particular favourite. I always look forward to going back again.

This was a quaint country castle. Great service, friendly and it has so much to give. The food, the staff, the owner were all so wonderful! We celebrated my daughter's birthday and they made it so memorable. The whole area has a lot of fun to offer. It is a must see if you go to Ireland.

We decided on the Abbeyglen castle hotel as the venue for my sister's hen party. The hotel exceeded all expectations!! Nothing was too much to ask and the owner & staff went above and beyond to accommodate us! The hotel is such fun with a great sing song in the bar every night! The meal was very tasty and service...

The staff at this hotel were SO helpful, kind, and courteous. The hotel is well kept and clean. The rooms are huge! My only complaint is the shower door only covers half the shower and no matter what I did, the bathroom floor got very wet.

We had a return visit to this unique recently and were not disappointed. From a wonderful welcome at reception on our arrival to occupying a lovely room on the first floor, we were really pleased. The smell of the turf fires in the relaxing areas of the hotel are wonderful, as is the atmosphere in the adjoining lounge bar. Afternoon... More
