“Fabulous time at the Abbeyglen Castle Hotel”
Reviewed September 9, 2005

I am moved to review the Abbeyglen Castle Hotel after reading recent negative reviews. We were a group of five Canadians, three early 50's and two late 20's. We stayed for three nights, May 23-26 and truly had the time of our lives.
We originally planned to take day trips to Galway City and to the surrounding area; however, once we settled into the castle we did not venture too far abroad. We certainly took in Clifden, Sky Rd, Kylemore Abbey and a wonderful store along the way, but were home for late afternoon tea each day.
Our rooms were very comfortable and the public rooms were inviting and relaxing. The staff was delightful, from reception to the dining room to the bar. The owners were fabulous characters.
Our meals were excellent and the international wait staff were charming and efficient.
Evenings spent in the bar, with entertainment provided by the patrons, was unbelievably fun. We were fortunate to be there with Rotarians from Scotland and we often remember the good times we enjoyed.
We have told our stories, shown pictures and videos and friends are planning holidays next year. I hope we shall return very soon.
We also enjoyed the company of Gilbert, the parrot.(Sometimes we mixed up his name and called him Clifford.)
We would all go back in a heartbeat.
