Glenlo Abbey Hotel: Galway

5-Star Glenlo Abbey Hotel and golf club is ideally located on the outskirts of Galway, at the gateway to Connemara, Ireland's most scenic destination.

The hotel features 50 Bedrooms and Suites designed with an emphasis on general space and comfort and a taste of old world charm. Its fine dining and entertainment options cater for both formal and informal occasions.

The hotel's grounds host two original carriages from the Orient Express. Dating from 1927, these carriages served on the Paris to Istanbul to St. Petersburg route; one of the pair was used in the making of Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express. Today serving as the Pullman Restaurant, the carriages offer a unique dining experience.

We stayed here are we were making final decisions on buying a house in the neighbourhood. The hotel was exquisite. Room was amazing, bathroom bigger than our kitchen at the time. Staff were warm and friendly. Breakfast was amazing. Too much choice!!! There was the breakfast buffet as well as a fabulous breakfast menu. Dinner on the Orient Express was exquisite in every way, food, service, experience. We were truly made to feel special. We have since been back for coffee and for New Years Dinner. Always the food and service is fantastic. I would highly highly recommend this hotel.
