Just back from a wedding here at the weekend and have to say that this is a top notch hotel. From the avenue down to the hotel is the most amazing view of Lough Ree - spectacular. A lovely outdoor seating area where we had the drinks reception to the function room which had floor to ceiling windows looking out over the lake. Food was great too. The staff were extremely friendly and the rooms very comfortable. Would definitely recommend to a friend...

Room Tip: Try and get one overlooking the lake!

Attended a wedding here recently. Had a fantastic day, from check-in to check out, everthing was lovely.The meal at the Wedding was lovely & Breakfast was one of the nicest i've tasted in a Hotel.
The safe in our room was a great asset, not many hotels offer them in Ireland. Was nice to feel that your personal belongings were safe. Overall a very friendly Hotel.

I was at this hotel with family and friends for a wedding. It was a lovely hotel in a great setting and the staff and service were excellent. The rooms were a bit pricey for the quality but as a setting for a wedding the hotel was excellent.

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.

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
