I stayed on the Abbey hotel for 1 night, and have to say the food was fantastic. Absolutely delicious - get the steak, it is world class!
Which came as a surprise as the rest of the hotel is not great. The rooms are very outdated, the service ranges from great to terrible depending on whom you talk to, and the spa is nothing better than what you would expect a council leisure centre (however this is currently being renovated so may improve).
As with other reviewers, I found the restaurant service incredibly slow. When I ate dinner the restaurant was about 25% full, yet the wait for service was very long indeed, and we seemed to have a different waitress every time we needed help, which caused confusion. I have seen the hotels response to similar comments - perhaps the best service in Connacht is not much of an achievement.
To sum up I would say that our stay was reasonably pleasant, but not at all what I have experienced at other 4* spas. If you're looking for a romantic getaway at a spa, keep looking. If you're going through town on business and want a great steak, then the Abbry will do nicely.More
