Glenlo Abbey in Galway Ireland
Glenlo Abbey is an amazing place. We had a fabulous dinner at the Pullman Restaurant located on the grounds. Staff was excellent in every aspect. Met a bunch of great people at the piano bar and had a fun night chatting with them. Room was perfect!

Glenlo Abbey exceeds expectations
We loved our stay at the Glenlo Abbey. The grounds were so lovely, as was the bike riding, our adult children didn’t want to go back into Galway on our 2nd day! The food is wonderful, we really enjoyed the hot breakfast and cold buffet, as well as dinner at Palmers. And the spa treatments were so relaxing, they were an added bonus.

10/10 Exceptional

This property was super communicative through the whole process. I received confirmation emails, a confirmation call a week before our stay, and a confirmation call when I was in bad service area the day of and ran late for check-in. The held our spot at their sister restaurant (not the Pullman, unfortunately because they were already booked), but it was still an excellent dining experience, with helpful staff and delicious food. Our room was clean, and the check-in and out processes were quick and easy. They even had bellhops who assisted with our luggage! Everyone was super friendly, efficient, and supportive of our stay. I'll definitely make a point to stay here again next time I plan a trip to Ireland.

The property was beautiful and the staff was really excellent. They were attentive to our every need and went out of their way. Breakfast was delicious and you had a beautiful view of the golf course and grounds. We also did the Fslconry which was a great experience and Jason who was the guide was wonderful.
