I should have written this review months ago. I cannot say enough good things about Abbey View and the best part of Abbey View, Bernie! She's so welcoming. It was like going to stay with a favorite aunt. She was always handy for advice on where to go and where to park. After coming in from a long day she...

This place beats any hotel. Location is perfect, right opposite Glenlo Abbey (3 mins walk), good parking and easy access to town. Rooms are really clean and comfy, plus mine had a sink. Breakfast is delicious. But the best thing is Bernie. She made me feel so welcome and looked after me brilliantly. And the relaxed approach to check-out time...

I stayed in Abbey View for a week before I could find permanent accommodation after relocating to Galway for work. Bernie and her family were very friendly and welcoming. The room I stayed in had a very comfortable bed and was very clean. The breakfast was very good, especially the crispy rashers! I would highly recommend Abbey View.

Bernie was an absolute delight! My wife and I stayed 2 nights here and he had a great time. Bernie would make sure we knew exactly where we needed to go when we told her our plans and made a delicious breakfast every morning. We felt like family for our entire stay.

We had good advice from the hostess...

I first came to Ireland in 1995, and I remember the warm welcomes, the brown bread, and the genuine hospitality that I experienced everywhere I went. In some places, that has changed with the bubble and bust of the last decade -- but not at the Abbey View. Bernie is an absolute delight. We did not have reservations, but we...

Warm, welcoming hostess (Bernie). Room comfortable, clean and well appointed. Food delicious. Sited outside the town, lovely garden views from window - greenery all around, which made for a very pleasant scene to wake up to when curtains were opened in morning. Would heartily recommend! Bernie is happy to recommend places to visit in the area.
