A birthday trip to Ireland and Aer Lingus did Ellen and I a HUGE FAVOR....they sent us to Glenlo Abbey for Ellie's Birthday. Our second and third nights of a weekl-ong driving trip and Sandra had the flowers I had arranged, a special room, birthday greetings and kind, patient and fun treatment. (The flowers were so well packaged and presented we took them with us for the rest of our trip!) Where to drive the next day to SEE Conemarra, which pub to go to and how best to walk in town....Sandra and John will set your hospitality bar as high as it can be set! And all the other staff at Glenlo is friendly and made us feel welcome and warm. Add to that the rooms, the view and our dinner....all special and breakfast spectacular. And what we did in those couple of days with Sandra and John's expertise and patience in and around Galway and on our way to our next stops made the balance of our trip just as swell! We know whenever we are near Galway, we'll be back at Glenlo Abbey.Thanks, Again Sandra & John!
