“Golf Society Short Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2012

Went to Glasson House for three days golfing and hotel stay. The hotel is immaculate! Rooms are clean and beds are well turned down with good quality linen. The hotel main bar has wonderful views and can accommodate large numbers of guests. The food is of a very high standard although the snack menu in the bar is drastically overpriced! 14euro for a chicken burger with a side of chips! Outrageous!
On the golf front the course is maintained to a very high standard with tee boxes, fairways and greens all immaculate. Only criticism is that we played the course three times and the pin positions were in the same place three days in a row. Small things make a difference.
The staff could not have been more helpful and made our stay very comfortable and enjoyable.

If you are in the midlands, I strongly recommend that you to stay in the Glasson Golf & Country Club. Your expectations of a good hotel will completely change after your stay.

We felt the warmth of the staff once we set foot in the hotel, with banter and chat with the ladies at reception. Our rooms were spotless, spacious and comfortable, with ample room for 4 of us to sit and enjoy a bottle of bubbles before dinner.

The bar is modern and warm, with a stunning view over the golf course.

Breakfast was a buffet of hot and cold food. Irish breakfast goodies were freshly cooked, not greasy and high quality. Cold foods ranged from fresh fruit to yoghurt to smoked salmon. Delicious!

Still regretting not staying for 2 nights but we will definitely be back.

I celebrated my wedding here last weekend and everything was perfect; Staff, food, location, scenary, rooms. Everyone of our guests expressed to us how much they enjoyed staying here and how fantastic they thought the food was. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. A good gang of us stayed 2 nights and absolutely no complaints whatsoever only amazing praise for this excellent establishment. I look forward to spending many more happy weekends here.

I stayed here with some work colleagues this week. We got a great deal for Hotel, dinner and golf. I was very impressed with the quality of the rooms, and the friendly staff. I was also very impressed with the quality of the dinner, which had numerous choices for starter and main course.
I had been suffering for a few months with a trapped nerve in my neck, and consequent discomfort down my right arm. I booked in for a massage on the morning of our departure and was very impressed with the result of the treatement. I still feel much better, and would like to suggest a visit to Aine if you are feeling stressed..

Gerry.

Room Tip: request a room with a view over Lough Ree.
