Stayed in the Glasshouse for the second time last weekend. Again it was a great experience and the staff were extremely friendly as always. Check-in was quick even though it was quite busy. We stayed on the 5th floor overlooking the river and the town which was lovely, and the balcony was great as we were able to sit and enjoy the views. The room was big, spacious and bright. The bar had a great atmosphere and there was plenty of buzz about the place. We came back to the hotel quite late (around 1:00 am) after a few too many sociables in the town and a very kind staff member offered to make us some toasted ham and cheese sandwiches as we were starving!! He brought them up to the room within 10 mins, excellent service! Anytime we stay in Sligo we stay in the Glasshouse, highly recommend. One note, they are in the middle of installing A/C in the rooms so they only have electric fans but it didn't bother us.

Located in the center of the city, the glasshouse hotel is first choice for any visit to sligo. I stayed here for my fifth wedding anniversary celebration and we had great time indeed. The room was very nice, clean and spacious. Well designed decor and had an excellent view of the river. Had a decent bath-tub but the shower was very ordinary and cracked. That was the only disappointment.
Restaurant is very good, so as the food. Overall a wonderful experience. Recommended.

Just back from one night in sligo and we are so glad we choose to stay in the glasshouse. Everything was well organized - thanks to Marina and Gemma and the other ladies that i emailed loads regarding the hen party. We booked the glasshouse for the location, which was so central. Hotel is so clean and rooms lovely. Dinner and breakfast was tasty and good choice. We had a cocktail class booked in the hotel, and i must say was excellant, the bar men, Cathal and Gary made our hen loads of fun, not easy keeping 22 women happy ..overall great Day/ Night. Thank you

I had the pleasure of attending our annual bridge dinner on friday night. Beautiful menu but what stood out was the service and attention to details. It was remarkable especially given the size of the group. Everyones order was remembered i.e: who wanted sauce on the side, etc and presented to each person without query. Water etc was replaced unobtrusively and full seemed to be served simultaneously. I was impressed, Thank you

Room Tip: Very central & good value

Great location and good food. Strand hill worth a visit. Great beach for a walk or just sit and watch the surfing. Hotel right in Sligo town handy for shopping and going out at night no need for taxis or car.

For the purpose of our stay, the Glasshouse was fine. We were using it as quick stay in Sligo to see the surrounding area. It seems like it's a popular option for hen parties (we saw 2) and for big groups. The room had been cleaned before we got there, but did not have the toiletries, waters, robes and all the towels stocked for the Deluxe Room we had booked. A quick call to the front desk fixed this, though. The room itself felt fairly clean, could have been a little cleaner though. The air-conditioning unit in our room didn't work; the panel would not turn on and the screen covering the unit in the ceiling was missing. We opened the window, but got serenaded by a group of men coming back from drinks around 3am (we were on the 5th floor).

Overall, I wouldn't use this hotel for a long stay or a place to get good sleep. The doors are pretty loud. There was some loud work going on in the hall the morning we left and it started quite early.

On the positive side, the complimentary parking added to the convenience of the location and all the staff I encountered were very nice. The common spaces were very nice and we had the breakfast buffet; which was nothing special, but seemed reasonable for a hotel buffet based on the price. Again, the staff in the restaurant was really nice.

Room Tip: We were on the city side; I think the river-side would be worth.
