“excellent for golf and wedding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2011

I stayed for 2 nights for a wedding on the 4th August 2011
I arrived on the 3rd and played golf with several other wedding guests
It is a beautiful scenic golf course.
We had diner in the bar the evening before the wedding...excellent food
and service in a very relaxed atmosphere...we had the choice of dining
in the formal dinning room if we wished.
The wedding was held in the upper function room with a beautifull view
of the lake...the food, wine, table decorations were fantastic.
The staff were very friendly and attentive
My room was fantastic...really comfortable beds and plenty of space.
I highly recommend it for golf and weddings

We arrived at Glasson Hotel on Sunday 4th sep for a 2 night stay with dinner. We were given a warm welcome by Maria and Louise at reception. We had the pleasure of staying on the top floor in a room overlooking the lake, the view was outstanding. The comfort and facilites in the bedroom could not have being better, the bed was the most comfortable we have ever slept in. We had dinner in the restraunt on the sunday night. The food was first class and the waiter was very attentive and catered for our every need. The facilites around the hotel are excellent, the sauna and steem room are very relaxing & a few minutes on the massage chair before bed is a real treat. The scent of fresh flowers throughout the hotel is delightfull. Breakfast each morning was very tasty, and on top of the full Irish, there was also a lovely buffet with fresh scones, Salmon, a variety of cheeses ect ect.. Again the waiter at breakfast was helpfull and very professional. The golf course looked stunning, We plan to learn how to play so we can try it out the next time. The night porter (Anthony) was also very professional, helpfull and very friendly, He informed us of the hotels history and recommended local attractions that may be of interest to us durning our stay.
We also enquired about holding a civil partnership/reception at the hotel next year, Gareth showed us around and the function room is lovely. The view over the lake is one of the best we have ever had the pleasure of laying our eyes on. Glasson is top of the list for our future partnership, and the price quoted to us was quite affordable too. For any smokers there is plenty of balconies and patio areas to nip out for a cigeratte. Thank you so much to everyone at Glasson for a truely special, Memorable and fantastic time. We will surely be back and would recommend this hotel to any tyoe of guest, the facilites cater for all. Thanks again. Damien and Tim

We stayed one night here in August. I didn't expect to be so impressed by it. Our room was on the 3rd floor, had a little balcony and an amazing view. Bathroom had separate shower and bath and was very spacious. The bed was the most comfortable I've ever slept in. The mattress was just perfect. Would have loved to ask them what type they were but was afraid staff would think I was mad! dinner was amazing. Breakfast was buffet, very nice with gorgeous brown bread. Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone. Can't think if any negatives. There was a golf group in the bar area which might annoy some people but the area is spacious enough not to affect you.

We had a beautifully appointed twin room overlooking the Shannon. The beds were absolutely 5 star and one of the most comfortable I've ever stayed in. The staff at reception were extremely welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. I mentioned at check out that I had regrettably missed breakfast and the lady offered to have a sandwich made up for me for my journey - very impressive. I would highly recommend a stay at this hotel - so peaceful and relaxing.

This hotel is unique...located on the inner lakes of Lough Ree and as you drive into it, the setting is breathtaking!!!

Having worked in the hotel industry in Ireland and abroad, we were quite fussy when it came to choosing our wedding venue. We are delighted we chose this premier venue. We would pick up on small details and this hotel covers it all. The attention to detail from the time of booking to our wedding day was excellent. Nothing was any trouble and the wedding team provided great suggestions in the planning of the big day. Our Guests were overwhelmed by the friendly and welcoming atmosphere, some who work in the hotel industry were also very impressed.

The food was amazing and each of our guests could not stop commenting on how delicious it was. All staff were professional and provided a high quality of service from the time of check in, to the bar, banqueting suite and bedrooms. In our opinion each department provided a five star service. There is no other banqueting suite that we have seen that is designed in order to display a spectacular view while you dine!

The bedrooms are so spacious, airy and again with beautiful views. Stepping out on to the balcony at the end of our wedding night we would see the lights of Athlone glistening in the distance and we felt we are in a different country.

We cannot express our huge gratitude to all the Staff who truly made our day so magical and memorable. We would without doubt recommend Glasson Country House Hotel to anyone and especially any wedding couples who are looking for that "extra special" day!
