I stayed at Druids Glenn Resort with my partner overnight for valentines.
We couldn't fault the room, we stayed in an executive suite and it was lovely! Huge room with a lovely welcome card from the hotel manager and a box of lily o brien's chocolates compliments of the hotel. Later in the evening when we came back from dinner there were two valentines chocolates left on the bed, very nice little touches.
Every staff member we encountered was very helpful, from check in to drinks in the bar, the spa, leisure centre, restaurant and breakfast, everyone was very friendly, chatty and helpful.
We spent some time in the leisure centre, the facilities are great.
Then we spent an amazing afternoon in the spa. The atmosphere is such that you can't help but relax while you're there. Treatments were lovely, and the relaxation room is like being in another world!
The location of the hotel itself helps that feeling, it is quite close to Dublin (took us about 30 mins to get here) which is nice when you are only away for one night, but the location makes you feel like you are miles away from the 'real' world. It's very easy to find though and very well signposted from the n11.
There were however a couple of issues with the hotel, this is a family friendly hotel, and we stayed during the school's mid term break, so there were a lot of children around, running in the corridors outside the rooms playing and being rather noisy, not the hotel's fault, but it did wake us quite early in the morning. Also, we were a couple staying with no children, but if you are a family looking to stay, there are lots of friends around for your children to play with.
The restaurant was very busy at dinner being valentines night, so we had quite a Wait between starters and mains. Starters were delicious (have the Caesar salad!) we both had steak for mains, mine was underdone, and the chips were dry like they had been left under a hot lamp for a while. That said, the staff did come back to say they hadn't forgotten about our mains, and that the kitchen was just very busy. When we did mention our issues with dinner they were very apologetic and looked after our desert for us, which was a nice touch.
Breakfast the following morning was nice. The usual selection with pancakes and omelettes made to order.
Overall, we had a lovely stay at the Druids Glenn, and we would return, just maybe not during school holidays.
