Majestically rising from the still waters of Lough Corrib and dating back to the 18th Century, the 5 star Glenlo Abbey Hotel & Estate is where old-world charm meets contemporary elegance. Home to the Pullman Restaurant, two former carriages from the Orient Express and each with their own distinct history and style, this two AA Rosette Restaurant is one of the most distinctive dining experiences one can enjoy. The River Room Restaurant in the main hotel offers magnificent views from the bay windows overlooking the estate and Lough Corrib, whilst private dining can be arranged in the unique reception rooms of the main house and abbey.

The unique Championship 9 Hole Golf Course is quickly becoming one of the best 9 holes in the country with rolling hills, lakes and fabulous views of Lough Corrib and it is the closest golf course to Galway City. The 21 Bay Driving Range is the ideal place to warm up before a round of golf but also for group and individual golf tuition. While archery and some of the best fishing in Western Europe are easily organised right on-site on the estate.

Powered by AI

Nestled near Galway, Glenlo Abbey Hotel & Estate garners praise for its idyllic setting and meticulously kept surroundings, with guests often highlighting the hotel's charm and luxurious atmosphere. While the comfortable and elegant rooms receive commendations, some guests have expressed concerns over their size, dated features, and less than perfect views. The service at Glenlo Abbey is generally applauded for being attentive, yet occasional lapses in speed and organization have been noted. Although the hotel's amenities, including the unique Pullman restaurant, are frequently celebrated, there is a sentiment that the overall experience may not justify the expense.

Staycation and one of my favourite trips ever!!
My husband and I spent two nights at Glenlo Abbey during the week. We had the most wonderful stay.
We were warmly welcomed by Troy who assisted us in every way possible including looking after us in the Glenlo Abbey Cinema!As part of their Covid procedures,guests can only use the cinema in the company of those they are travelling with so we had the whole cinema to ourselves!!We even got to choose what we watched. That was a really lovely experience.
Caroline checked us in and kindly informed us that we were being upgraded to a suite!ROOM 308 had the most amazing views over the Pullman Restaurant and the 9 hole golf course all the way to Lough Corrib. The suite was HUGE and the bed was very comfortable.
We had dinner in the Pullman Restaurant on our second night. That was a real treat. Fine dining is not something we regularly take part but I recommend the Pullman experience to anyone. Dining in a train carriage from Murder on the Orient Express felt like stepping back in time. The staff on board The Pullman-and throughout the hotel were brilliant!All were warm,welcoming and extremely professional!
I absolutely loved Glenlo Abbey and look forward to a return visit.

Just a word to anyone concerned about staying in hotels at this time:Our time at Glenlo made us feel like we were actually getting back to some normality. We felt extremely safe and ,at no time,worried for our safety. The only thing that reminded us of the current situation were the safety measures taken by all staff in that they all wore masks. We also had to reserve a breakfast time in advance and had breakfast served directly to us,as opposed to a buffet. (I always prefer table service anyway for breakfast to be honest so that didn't bother me at all!!)What Glenlo have done really well is that they have ALL the safety measures in place in a very subtle,yet very obvious,way. There is hand sanitizer absolutely EVERYWHERE but it is presented in beautiful ornate dispensers with framed signs encouraging its constant usage.
I cannot recommend Glenlo Abbey highly enough. Thank you to all the great staff who looked after us during our stay.

One of Irelands finest hotels
Arriving at Glenlo Abbey you are immediately impressed with its location, large gates open wide onto an avenue that is surrounded by manicured lawns on one side and a golf course on the other, with the river Corrib as its backdrop. The staff on arrival were extreemly courteous and attentive and indeed throughout our stay. Whilst the hotel retains an old world charm throughout it is evident that is has had alot of tasteful refurbishment works done to it. Our rooms was bright spacious and well appointed, the bathroom particualrly genrous in size. Although we stayed in early June cool air conditioning was welcomed. What I liked too was that the TV can connect to your phone so on a wet evening you can still catch up on your Netflix favorites. I subsequently discovered that they actually have their own cinema which I must visit. The menu served on the Pullman carriage is exquisite, having not been able to dine in a restaurant during recent lockdowns if you like fresh seasonal produce this is a treat well worth having. Breakfast is served in a dining room that overlooks the grounds and the river and really is a lovely place to start the day, everything is served to you even the juice which again a nice little bit of luxury. Having stayed in a number of premium hotels in Ireland and abroad, Glenlo Abbey appears to be one of those hotels which continues to get better and better and we cant wait to return.

Sheer Luxury
Had a three night stay here and from the minute you walk in the door the warm welcome you receive makes you feel at home. We had a Corrib view bedroom which is very spacious with couch, 2 armchairs and table. Large LCD TV and DVD player. Luxury bathroom with slippers and robes, mini bar and Nespresso coffee machine. Complimentary Ballygowan water (still
and sparkling) replaced each day along with miniature chocolates. The bed was comfortable even though the mattress was soft which I prefer to be firmer but that's just my preference. We ate in the Cellar bar, good choice of meals and excellent staff. The breakfast had a vast cold buffet and you just ordered your hot food again great choice and much better than the hot buffets a lot of hotels offer. When I saw the tea arrive with a strainer I knew I was in a different place! The location is second to none with a golf course and fishing on your doorstep. Have a stroll around the grounds if the aforementioned doesn't float your boat. What a difference good staff make to your visit and all the staff here can take a bow.

A Memorable Stay
My husband and I booked in for a three night stay in Glenlo Abbey for our 30th anniversary recently and it was truly wonderful from start to finish.

Firstly, the entire place was spotless. There were hand sanitisation stations everywhere and not a speck of dust could be seen anywhere on the premises.

Huge thanks to ALL the staff who were extremely helpful and pleasant when we needed anything and left us to our own devices when we didn't. Superb service.

We were upgraded to a beautiful suite without requesting it and when we got to our room, after being walked there by the wonderful receptionist, a lovely welcome note, along with 4 beautiful pastries had been left left by Jennifer Heffernan, the Guest Relations Manager. A lovely touch - thank you.

The hotel's in-house cinema was a huge bonus which we availed of twice. We had the place to ourselves and on arrival we were given a box of popcorn each, courtesy of the hotel.

It's a pity the hotels main restaurant (which looks beautiful) was closed but we treated ourselves to a truly memorable anniversary dinner date in The Pullman Restaurant.

This unique and luxurious eatery is housed in two original carriages of the Orient Express and again, we were upgraded to one of its two private carriages which made the experience even more special.

A big shout out to the extremely pleasant and efficient, Nithin the waiter and to all the rest of the staff who were great too.

We can't fault anything about or stay in the beautiful Glenlo Abbey and would highly recommend it.

And again, huge thanks to ALL the staff. Ye were GREAT and congrats to one and all for maintaining such high standards in these difficult times.

We can't wait to visit again when normality resumes.

First impressions count!
We were attending a recent family wedding. I received a very friendly email about our stay and requesting if we had any additional requirements.
As we were arriving at noon and wedding was at 1pm I asked for a room to change into our wedding attire. I received a curt reply by email from Kate stating check in was 3pm with no mention of my request. I emailed again and got a reply this time from Jakub who assured me we would have a room as requested.
On arrival at the hotel I was met by Kate at check in who informed me again quite curtly that check in was 3 pm. I asked about the room to change into our attire and was told there was none available but weI could use the toilets!! I’m sorry that isn’t acceptable to me! Her attitude from start to finish was curt ,brusque and unprofessional. My request obviously irritated her and she made no attempt to hide it from us. I produced the email from Jakub and Kate replied “he’s only the night porter”. Eventually I was told I could use the meeting room to change into our wedding attire. So my wife ,sister and brother in law all trooped to the meeting room to get changed.
Before the wedding meal we were in the bar and on ordering 4 g&ts 2 slimline tonics the bar again curtly replies “ no slimline”! Imagine a 5 star hotel with no slimline!!
From our arrival until the wedding meal I just wanted to leave and never return, however the meal and reception were excellent. I could even get slimline tonic!! The food was exceptional and having attended many functions it’s rarely that every course was on point.
On check out Sandra was lovely and redeemed your reception team somewhat.
Unfortunately the “Kate” experience has left me cold and I will never return.

Dear C9270AIjoef, Thank you for taking the time to post a review online after your recent visit to Glenlo Abbey Hotel & Estate.

Having had the opportunity to fully review all written correspondence between yourself and our team prior to your arrival, I apologise if you found any response "curt" in nature. This certainly was not intentional, but was merely an attempt to offer the best possible advise regarding room availability prior to check in time. I was delighted to see though that after this poor start you thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of your stay. It is unfortunate that you have decided not to return in future, but if you do ever change your mind please do let us know. Yours Sincerely, Rónán O'Halloran General Manager

Outstanding hotel on pristine grounds with incredible staff
Just returned from a fantastic family break at Glenlo Abbey, from the minute we arrived we were made to feel extremely welcome by the professional and friendly staff. Our room was spacious, luxurious with fabulous views over Lough Corrib. The hotel felt extremely safe with clear COVID guidelines strictly adhered to without negatively impacting on our stay. Standouts on the staff front were housekeeping, room was pristine throughout our stay, Sandra on reception went above and beyond sharing recommendations on the lesser known places to see and to enjoy lunch and even managed to secure a dinner reservation when we had previously failed, she made time every day to chat and see how our stay was going without being intrusive. Eimear took outstanding care of us at breakfast each morning. Location is excellent on the outskirts of Galway city, best of both worlds benefitting from staying in the country on the edge of Connemara while being able to get into the heart of the city in less than 10 minutes. The only opportunity for improvement is dinner options in the hotel, the Orient Express restaurant was excellent however the only other option was bar food, I understand in non COVID times there is another dining option, the hotel definitely needs an in between option. Thank you to all at Glenlo Abbey that made our stay such an enjoyable and relaxing stay

Highly recommend
This was our second stay at Glenlo. This time we brought 8 family members to experience a top class hotel. Thankfully they didn't disappoint. The staff as always, are very welcoming. A slight letdown was one member of staff, clearly new to the role and "in training" appeared to have been thrown in at the deep end. Although trying their best, the service provided was dreadfully slow and inefficient. Personally, I would expect all staff in a 5 star to be trained to a high standard prior to dealing with guests. Nevertheless, the food was excellent. The hotel was presented in immaculate condition and I was delighted to see they had installed climate control in the rooms. The décor really is superb. Several members of our party felt the mattresses were on their last legs, as did I. Despite this, our overall experience was a very positive one and we look forward to our next visit.

I am happy to see that on a whole, your party had a great time. I am however sorry to read that you found a member of our team to be lacking in their service delivery, and further also disappointed to see your comments regarding the sleep quality. On behalf of the team and management I want to apologise for both of these items, and only wish we knew this during your stay, so we could have addressed this there and then for you.

Wonderful 5 star stay
I was met by a very friendly doorman at check-in who carried my luggage up the steps & handed it to the porter from there to bring to my room. Easy check-in+was brought directly to my room. Had a lovely bright airy double room with bright clean ensuite with The Handmade Soap Company toiletries. Had a decent lunch in the Palmers restaurant in the hotel,got the slow cooked brisket sandwich with chips,my first time having this.
Got some lovely Lily O'Brien's chocolates at turndown service. Had a vodka+raspberry syrup based cocktail 'mistletoe on the rocks' in the lounge bar in the evening before heading into the in-house cinema for the 10pm viewing of Titanic where we were given popcorn to enjoy with the movie. Was DELIGHTED with myself that I brought my room slippers in my bag with me,off went the shoes immediately. Had a lovely window seat the next morning for breakfast where I got what was the best Eggs Benedict that I can probably say Ive ever had. They have their own honeycomb at the breakfast buffet bar which I love. Glenlo has some of the most elegant & luxurious lounge/chill out rooms of any hotels Ive been in and the cherry on the cake is the reformed abbey room. From the beautiful stained glass window to the warm stove,it begs you to come in and sit down. You dont need a phone,a book or any distractions in this room,just being in its presence is enough.
I didn't want to leave that room but eventually had to check out.
The same friendly man I met at the hotel steps checking in,brought my luggage to my car for me,so nice!
I paid €183 for one night as part of their New Years Sale.
5 stars from me ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Such an amazing place!
We’ve visited the hotel in the weekend for the first time and it’s absolutely stunning!
The room was spacious, clean and equipped with everything we needed. The bed it’s sooooo comfy!
We had dinner in the Pullman Restaurant and it was an experience that we won’t forget. The food was so delicious (the beef was the best I’ve ever had). I strongly recommend to try this experience. It’s high quality even though it might seem a little to expensive to some people. Trust me, it’s worth it! I would like to mention Nithin who looked after us during our dinner, Donald from the bar who is such a great pleasure to chat with and Sandra from reception who is such a sweetheart! Many thanks to the housekeeping team for being so prompt in cleaning and restocking our room.
We did not went down for breakfast as we wanted to avoid being around people. Therefore, we have ordered our breakfast in the room everyday at 10 am and the order always came exactly on time! This is what you can call professionalism and 5star quality!
Thank you guys for an amazing weekend! Hope to be back soon!

Can't wait to come back!
My sister and I spent just one night here but i wish we booked for more! Before even entering the hotel i could smell the woodsmoke of the open fire, as well as the staff coming out to carry our bags we couldnt have asked for a more friendly welcome.

Every part of the hotel is decorated so beautifully, I could have spent the whole evening just taking photographs of the place. After a wonderful meal we were able to retreat to the drawing room and listen to the piano being played by the fire.

Theres not much choice on the menu which is vegan of an evening but what i did have was nice and at breakfast there is so much choice at the buffet nobody would go hungry.

Room was luxurious and very clean

The only negative of the stay was that we were put in an adjoining room and so could here EVERYTHING our next door neighbours were doing..

Overall its the most beautiful hotel ive every stayed in. The staff are wonderful and I cant wait to come back and try the fine dining on the orient express next time
