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

This hotel is a 5 star experience in every way. The grounds and hotel itself are breathtakingly beautiful and impeccably maintained. The rooms are comfortably elegant and very clean. All of the staff is friendly, helpful and accommodating. The common areas are cozy yet elegant as well. I especially loved sitting by the fire each evening. The doorman, Troy, was helpful and very friendly. It was great to be welcomed "home" each evening. I highly recommend both the archery and falconry which are both run by Jason. Jason was friendly, informative and a lot of fun. The falconry experience with him was one of the main highlights of the entire trip. I am a frequent traveler and Glenlo Abbey has proven to be one of my favorite hotels of all time.

The attention to detail makes a visit here worthwhile.Lovely staff and food. The attention to detail even extends to the gardens where the grass between the daffodils was cut to create the perfect manicured lawn. No trip would be complete without a meal in the Pullman coaches from the Orient Express. These were the actual coaches used in the film "Murder on the Orient Express" i believe. Certainly a unique dining experience.
