"Stunning location with outstanding service"
We stayed 2 nights for a friend’s wedding and to celebrate a special birthday. We were greeted from the car door with the Commissionaire holding an umbrella to shelter us from the rain. We entered reception to the warmth and smell of a turf fire. The receptionist took us directly to our room, we had a classic room and it was quite large with a 3 seater couch, 3 lounging chairs and coffee table. The room was so cozy we abandoned our plans for a walk and relaxed in the very homely interiors of our bedroom. The Nespresso machine leaked and was replaced immediately. We had a small lunch in the guest lounge/lobby area. The beef sandwich was delicious. The food here is superb, we had dinner in The Pullman (highly recommend) and retired to the lobby to listen to the piano until 10pm, pianist was excellent. The lunch, dinner, wedding reception and breakfasts were delicious, very talented chefs here and the waiting staff are on the ball at all times.
There is an excellent breakfast menu too.
The weekend was thoroughly enjoyable, this is a very relaxing, chill environment to get away from life in a space that is very warm, inviting and homely.
I cannot single out one member of staff as everyone I met was warm, friendly, professional and so helpful, the staff here are truly excellent and very well trained. Everyone was happy and bubbly, it’s clear they very much enjoy their jobs. I absolutely loved Glenlo and will return. See separate Pullman review.

Relaxing stay in luxurious surroundings
We stayed in Glenlo Abbey for a wedding and whole experience from check in to departure was 5 stars. The friendliness and helpfulness of the staff made it a pleasurable stay. We had dinner in the Pullman restaurant which has the original carriages from the orient express and the quality of the food and service was top class, will definitely return.

"A memorable stay"
Celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary we were given a very warm welcome by charming staff. The hotel provided us with a beautiful room upgrade, warm, quiet and spacious. Dinner was in the Pullman restaurant. Food very nice with quality over quantity. Shame about the weather but we did manage a nice walk in the grounds during a dry spell!

"Our perfect wedding at Glenlo Abbey"
We had our dream wedding at Glenlo Abbey! From our first meeting with the wedding coordinator in the beautiful hotel lounge, sipping tea in front of a roaring fire, to the personal care we received from the Glenlo staff throughout our wedding day, we couldn't have asked for more. We live abroad so we were unsure how the planning of our wedding would be, but thankfully we had no problem organising everything via email as the staff are very responsive. Many of our guests stayed at the hotel and really enjoyed the grounds and especially the Irish breakfasts! The reception room was laid out very tastefully and the ceremony, dinner, dancing and after party at the cellar bar went off so smoothly. The setting is just beautiful; we got so many beautiful photos around the hotel grounds and especially in the chapel. The value of the package was terrific in terms of the quality of the food, drinks and setting. Glenlo is a very special secluded venue, but being only 15 minutes from Galway, it was very accessible for all our guests who had come from all over the world. We particularly appreciated the little details like when the staff pulled the wedding party aside for a drink in the bar as our guests settled in the dining room All in all, a fantastic experience that we would recommend to everyone.

Glenlo Abbey staff could not have been more welcoming to all of us! We were a large group staying there for a wedding and the accommodations were exceptional! Our room was spacious and very clean. While our view was not spectacular, the grounds were breathtaking to walk and enjoy all the places to relax. There was a wonderful bar that we enjoyed in the evening, followed by dinner in the restaurant. The restaurant was a it noisy but the food was delicious, portions perfect. We did not play golf but the golf course was lovely. I also highly recommend dinner at the Pullman car and the morning breakfast was one of the best I had in Ireland. The building is so lovely and appointed with gorgeous antiques. While it is located outside of town, it is worth the beauty to stay away from the downtown area.
