We stayed 3 nights at Glenlo Abbey in May and very much enjoyed our visit. The reception rooms of the hotel are beautifully furnished and just waiting for you to relax. The guest rooms are spacious with marble baths and beautiful views from each window. The staff is friendly and attentive. Previous to our visit, the front desk staff was great about answering my e-mail questions. This property makes a great base for exploring the Connemara region. There is an adjacent 9 hole golf course, and the property is set off from town on it's own spacious grounds. Yes, you will want to take a taxi into Galway as parking is a hassle, but when you return, you will enjoy the serene, quiet setting even more. The food is delicious with fresh fruits and vegetables delivered each day for preparation. We enjoyed every meal at Glenlo. If you are in the younger crowd and looking for the pub atmosphere, this might not be the place for you. However, if you want a quiet, relaxing retreat, this is a beautiful property, which I'm sure you would enjoy.
