“Convenient Base for Yeats Country”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

My wife and I based ourselves here for a long weekend spent touring around Yeats' country. It's the perfect location, in the heart of the city, but easy enough to access and within walking distance of all the shops or eateries. They have an underground carpark which is free for residents but used by lots of others as well; it seemed always very busy and some of the parking was all over the place so it's very tight to manoeuvre around. The hotel itself is pleasant inside, nicely furnished and well kept; the bedroom was comfy and spacious but the bathroom maybe needed a bit of an upgrade. We had a lovely view from a top floor out over the river and weir. There did seem to be several groups of young people staying and we found that they tended to fill up the bar and they were also quite noisy at nighttime. Breakfast wasn't included for us but we bought it anyway; it was tasty but very expensive. We also ate one night in the restaurant which was excellent. All in all, pretty good and would certainly recommend for anyone who wants a handy spit from which to explore the county.

Room Tip: Ask for one high up and facing the river

Stayed in the Glasshouse for the second time last weekend. Again it was a great experience and the staff were extremely friendly as always. Check-in was quick even though it was quite busy. We stayed on the 5th floor overlooking the river and the town which was lovely, and the balcony was great as we were able to sit and enjoy the views. The room was big, spacious and bright. The bar had a great atmosphere and there was plenty of buzz about the place. We came back to the hotel quite late (around 1:00 am) after a few too many sociables in the town and a very kind staff member offered to make us some toasted ham and cheese sandwiches as we were starving!! He brought them up to the room within 10 mins, excellent service! Anytime we stay in Sligo we stay in the Glasshouse, highly recommend. One note, they are in the middle of installing A/C in the rooms so they only have electric fans but it didn't bother us.

Located in the center of the city, the glasshouse hotel is first choice for any visit to sligo. I stayed here for my fifth wedding anniversary celebration and we had great time indeed. The room was very nice, clean and spacious. Well designed decor and had an excellent view of the river. Had a decent bath-tub but the shower was very ordinary and cracked. That was the only disappointment.
Restaurant is very good, so as the food. Overall a wonderful experience. Recommended.

Just back from one night in sligo and we are so glad we choose to stay in the glasshouse. Everything was well organized - thanks to Marina and Gemma and the other ladies that i emailed loads regarding the hen party. We booked the glasshouse for the location, which was so central. Hotel is so clean and rooms lovely. Dinner and breakfast was tasty and good choice. We had a cocktail class booked in the hotel, and i must say was excellant, the bar men, Cathal and Gary made our hen loads of fun, not easy keeping 22 women happy ..overall great Day/ Night. Thank you

I had the pleasure of attending our annual bridge dinner on friday night. Beautiful menu but what stood out was the service and attention to details. It was remarkable especially given the size of the group. Everyones order was remembered i.e: who wanted sauce on the side, etc and presented to each person without query. Water etc was replaced unobtrusively and full seemed to be served simultaneously. I was impressed, Thank you

Room Tip: Very central & good value

Great location and good food. Strand hill worth a visit. Great beach for a walk or just sit and watch the surfing. Hotel right in Sligo town handy for shopping and going out at night no need for taxis or car.
