“World Class Golf, Gorgeous Hotel with Friendly Staff”
Reviewed June 26, 2011

I'm hesitant to write this review because I consider Glasson Golf Hotel a hidden gem. The setting is spectacular with views of Lough Ree from the club house, bedrooms and the course. I prefer this course and setting to most of the other championship courses in the country. Glasson Golf is family owned and run and the staff and very friendly and helpful. i recommend it highly.

My colleagues and I ran a corporate event at the Glasson Golf Hotel and Country Club in June 2011. The location is superb and the newly renovated hotel is fantastic with outstanding views . The food was excellent along with the faultless hospitality extended to us throughout our stay. I would highly recommend Glasson for a quiet weekend break, as a wedding venue or to host a corporate event. Our many thanks to the team at Glasson for making our event such a success.

Room Tip: Ask for the lake view - its outstanding

We stopped in to this lovely hotel for lunch and on the recommendation of a friend, who is soon to have his wedding at the hotel. The grounds are fab, pity about the weather but I am picturing it in the sunshine! The bar lunch was delicious, affordable and the service was very good. We took a peek at the ballroom and it almost made me want to book the place for my own wedding! I just need to convince the other half that he wants to get married! Lovely place! i'm looking forward to booking a weekend here sometime soon for a treat!

Dear Kalina,

Thank you very much for your lovely comments. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay with us, even if it was a short stay for lunch! We opened our new bar/ restaurant and Conference & Banqueting suite in May of last year, and so far we have been getting rave reviews about the quality of food and the service ever since. We are one of the most exciting new venues in the country at the moment for weddings and would love to get the opportunity to give you a "proper" showaround for your wedding.

Once again, thank you for your lovely comments and we look forward to welcoming you back to Glasson Country House Hotel & Golf Club in the near future.

Kindest Regards,
Fidelma Reid

Our recent stay at The Glasson Golf Hotel was sheer bliss. Beautiful location with wonderful scenery. Overlooking the golf course and although there was a wedding taking place it felt like we had the place to ourselves. Staff were extremely helpful and polite but also very friendly. It's the little things that make a difference. They even remembered to put a heater in the bathroom mirror so it doesn't steam up!!! Very clever. Dining was also very pleasant and food delicious. All in all, a wonderful experience. It's a long time since I stayed at a hotel I was happy with everything!!! Now if they could just do something about the weather??? Thank you very much Glasson Golf Hotel :-)

Stayed here on 14 May a surprise birthday treat from my wife. Staff really friendly and room was very high standard, although slightly disappointed to see one of the upstairs room number tippexed out on room card and replaced with a downstairs one with no balcony. Despite this can have no complaints about the view over the lough and golf course which is lovely. There was a function on in the hotel so we had our dinner in the bar area in front of the large bay window. Food was good although my medium steak was over cooked and then returned very rare when I complained. Not having our main course together because of this slightly spoiled the meal.Starters and main course were very good and service was good despite the function. Had a relaxing weekend and I would return again especially to try out the golf course.

Glasson Hotel & Golf Club is beautifully located at Lough Ree.
Rooms are spacious and overlooking the lake. Bathrooms stylish and clean.
