We were a Golf Society of 21 ladies. We were all delighted with our lovely bedrooms. Golf course is challenging and in a pretty setting overlooking Lough Ree. Enjoyed our evening meal in a private setting. Wonderful staff. Many thanks.

Room Tip: I chose a quiet room at the back of the hotel with a balcony for evening sun.

We stayed on 11 May 2012 and played the course. We were on our way to the west coast to play Lahinch. The hotel was friendly, modern and well fitted 7 extremely comfortable. The food was excellent as were all the staff. The golf course was in good condition and well worth playing. We enjoed it all so much we booked to stay the following week on the way back to Dublin

This wonderful hotel set in the most magificant grounds overlooking Lough Ree is well worthy of its four star status. We stayed for the weekend and had a beautiful room with a balcony looking out over the lake. The food was excellent and although similar on both days it was so good we didn't mind. My husband played golf on both days and was very impressed by the course. All of this was complemented by staff who actually were intent on making sure that we had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. Fidelma, Julie, Geraldine and Gareth were particularily helpful.

Room Tip: Request a room overlooking the lake and with a balcony.

I have stayed in the hotel recently for a period of 3 days and have to complement the team to the highest level. As a hotel director, I'm always very aware of the challenges of running a good hotel but the team in Glasson have it down to a fine art.

From the moment we arrived, the entire team where exceptional. Extremely friendly and couldn't be more helpful with anything we needed. We had intended only playing the course on 1 day but considering the amazing views and standard of the course, we cancelled our other course and stayed on here.

Although i've not played Lough erne yet, several of the group have and all agreed, that Glasson house is equally as good if not better. Definitely worth a visit any day of the week and the team should be very proud

Everything that the web site had stated was true and a lot lot more,
Arriving through the gates of the hotel ,to be met with breathtaking views of beautiful Lough Ree,stunning scenery as far as the eye could see,and it just got better by the moment.
Entering the hotel to be met with the most WHAA interior decadence i have ever seen in a foyer/reception area of any hotel i have stayed in ,complimented by the warm welcoming friendly reception staff , Fidelma,Gareth,Julie and Cathy,
just what you need after a long drive .
Our Rooms with en suite bathroom were superb in size and decoration, pristine clean and with balconies that allowed us to sit and relax and enjoy the views(oh so relaxing)From Breakfast to evening Meals and everything in between the food was mouthwateringly delicious and service from all members of staff very friendly and still very professional.
My husband along with a small party of family and friends played the golf course ,and came up to all of his expectations ,the course was superbly maintained and a pleasure to play on.
This was our first visit to the Glasson Country House Hotel and Golf Club,it most definitely will not be our last
Thankyou to everyone involved in making our stay so memorable,
A jewel in the heart of Ireland ,that would rank alongside the best in the world ,possibly surpass them never having lost that family personal touch,an all important ingredient that in my opinion moves it from been Outstanding to been Out Of This World.

Situation right on a big lake, this hotel has fabulous views and walks. Our room looked right out on the lake and was large and nice. No complaints at all about the hotel. It's very much aimed at golfers, as in the name, but that's not a drawback. I very much enjoyed the walk to a marina on a second lake, you exit the hotel using the back entrance, by foot and it's about a mile away.

Irish hotels do have weddings which can be noisy, we were woken once but it wasn't really a problem.

Visit the nearby Wineport Lodge for a meal also. It's also on the lake and can be seen from the hotel. Ten of us all cleared our plates, best meal for a long time, and not too pricey.

This is the most fabulous place. Probably the best hotel in Ireland I have stayed in. Myself and my sisters and Mother go here once a year for the last ten years. This is very special to us, we are treated like royalty. Nothing is too much trouble. All the staff are fab, the service the rooms the ambience, what more can I say.
