“Relax and Enjoy”
Reviewed September 25, 2010

We really stumbled along this hotel by accident due to a road being closed off! How lucky were we after a weary days travelling to find this hotel which is on the lakeside.
We were shown to a lovely large room which looked out on the Lough. After a really good meal - if that was a Bar Meal then I will definitley try the a la carte next time! - we had a wonderful nights sleep. Breakfast was served, as was everything else, from staff with a genuine smile and attentiveness. From reading the information in the folder in the room I discovered that the hotel is run by the Reid family themselves which accounts for the attention.

How great that you just found us by chance and that we were able to extend the warm Glasson welcome to you both. We look forward to welcoming you back to taste the A La Carte Menu in the Restaurant for another great food experience.

Thanks for arranging tee times of 11.30am and 11.45am on Friday September 3rd for my party and I. We greatly enjoyed the golf in brilliant sunshine and temperature of 24 degrees. I have played golf in over 30 countries on 5 continents and I can say authoritatively that Glasson can be very proud of the world class course and the way it is maintained. The food in the restaurant was also very good. Keep up the high standards you have set.

Wishing Glasson every success in these difficult times in the future.

We have just returned from a three night stay in Glasson Hotel and Golf Club. Glasson catered so well for our Golf Society Annual Away trip. Sixteen participated, playing Golf two days in wonderful sunshine on a challenging course,set against the beautiful backdrop of Lough Ree.
Each evening we had excellent dinners served in our own private dining room with excellent attention throughout.

The Team in Glasson looked after us so so well from the initial planninhg stages right through to our actual stay with them. Courtesy and friendliness was at the forefront throughout.

I, as the Golf Society Captain so appreciated thesupport I received from all The Glasson Team. I will be back and so will others in our Group.

This is my sixth stay at Glasson Golf Hotel and each visit has been a wonderful experience.
What makes it all work is the staff getting that balance of professionalism and friendliness down to a fine art.
The golf course is a well manicured test of golf with a great variation of holes with trees and of course the dreaded water.
The restaurant is a must experience with a well varied menu and very well presented food.
The rooms are very comfortable and clean and have all the facilities you would expect from a top hotel.
A beautiful Hotel with magnificent views already looking forward to my next visit.

We stayed for three nights in a suite with both golf course and lake views. The staff were very friendly from the time we walked in the door through to checkout. They responded quickly to all queries and were very helpful.

The suite was extremely spacious and we really enjoyed sitting on the balcony admiring the views. The ensuite had a seperate bath and shower and we loved the cosy underfloor heating. Upgrading to a suite is thoroughly recommended.

The new bar and function room have breathtaking views and we were only sorry that we didn't have a wedding to plan. Although being outside of Athlone town centre, it was within a short drive of numerous amenities which kept our child occupied. We even went swimming each morning.

We enjoyed our stay immensely and it must be utopia for golfers.

We got married last month in Glasson and it was the best day ever. The venue was stunning with breathtaking scenery, service was perfect and the newly opened function room was simply the best around. Our party involved 130 in all and everyone felt well looked after. The staff were always helpful and it was service with a smile. Our guests had travelled from all over the world and they all had a great time.

The celebrations went on for 2 whole days. The wedding was held on a friday and saturday was spent recuperating which was followed by a boat trip on the lake and an evening barbecue. The food was superb throughout, regardless of the large numbers.

We visited the hotel soon after our honeymoon, just for dinner and were greeted with the same welcome. It is our humble opinion that if you are looking for a spectacular venue for a wedding and want to leave the stress and strain behind, choose this hotel and you will not be disappointed.

The golf course is incredible and the local village has good pub/restaurants too.
