We got upgraded both times to amazing rooms with amazing views and it was such a lovely touch. The food is gorgeous and such a fantastic place to go and switch off enjoy the...

We had a family wedding here recently. From start to finish, it was a delightful experience. Cathy, the wedding and events manager was so helpful and gave some great advice. From canapés to the wedding meal to the late night food and BBQ the following day, I can only say the food was truly excellent. Really well prepared food with...

While the Glenlo is well located outside of the gritty city of Galway & it has a beautiful golf course on the grounds...there are some problems that need to be addressed to make it a true 5 star accomodation. First..we had 2 rooms for 4 nights #202 & #204 and each & every night there were smokers under our windows...

We arrived at Glenlo Abbey Hotel directly from the Dublin airport (luckily, we hired a driver). We were completely exhausted and it was early in the day, so the room was not ready. We were asked if we'd like breakfast while we waited for our room, even though it was clear that breakfast service was over. We said, yes, and...

This hotel is fabulous - no expense is spared in making sure your stay there is nothing less than exceptional. Staff was amazing and so helpful. The grounds are very beautiful and the hotel itself was classic and truly stunning. The breakfast was fantastic and sitting by the fire at night enjoying a glass of wine is a must. Really...

The Falconry program was one of the highlights of a 10 day trip to Ireland. Jurgen's love & passion for his subject are infectious. The 'Hawk Walk' portion was amazing & highlighted Jurgen's grace & professionalism. Our group included ages 6 to 70 and everyone was completely engaged. All had the opportunity to hold owls, hawks, and falcons.

Outstanding stay at Glenlo Abbey Hotel. The hotel is located a very short drive from Galway city center. We initially worried that it would be too far of a drive from the activity but were relieved to find that not to be the case. The service at the hotel is impeccable. From the moment we arrived, hotel staff went above...

I have not stayed in many hotels better than this one. Right on the golf course. Archery, Falconry, Golf and Tranquility walks. Staff can't do enough to make your stay great. They have the yes we can attitude about everything. I loved it!

We were two couples whom loved our stay at Glenlo Abbey! The hotel is lovely and warm, as is the staff. The rooms are clean, decorated nicely and are a good size. The only down side was the WIFI coverage; it was slow at best. We had a lovely dinner in the Pullman restaurant, which is located in an original...
