Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Wonderful stay again in the Glenroyal Hotel. We ate breakfast lunch and dinner here and could not fault the food. Rooms are wonderfully large and comfortable. We booked a family room, the beds were fantastic. The staff could not be any more accommodating only problem we had was noisy neighbours shouting in the hall, fighting and just being a nuisance all night long 🤦‍♀️ soundproofing was not great.

We spent St Patrick's day in this beautiful hotel with extend family. The management and staff were absolutely outstanding. They really went out of their way to make sure that everyone enjoyed the day including my son who is autistic. We could mot fault anything, so clean, good food, excellent service and attention to their customers. We will definitely be back.

Stayed in the Glenroyal hotel over Saint Patrick's weekend and I must say Evan and Ian in the bar are just fantastic, excellent service and fantastic cocktails from Evan in particular. Would highly recommend stopping by for a drink in the Arkle Bar. Looking forward to returning soon.

Stayed here recently with my two daughters age 13 and 10. A family package deal which included breakfast and three course dinner. A week before arriving, Callum rang me asking if I wanted a room upgrade to a family room. I said yes of course and the room was gorgeous. A double bed and single beds. Newly refurbished. Very modern. Thanks Callum. Hotel staff very welcoming and friendly. The family pool was lovely. Kids really enjoyed it. There's a jacuzzi, steam room and sauna for the adults. All lovely. Went to the pool following morning again after breakfast. Dinner was nice but limited choice on the three course set menu. Could have had more variety. The drinks very expensive. Breakfast following morning was excellent. Great variety and lots to choose from and tasty. The reason for 4 stars not 5, is because of limited food choice at dinner and although the room was gorgeous, it was extremely warm. The thermostat was at the lowest and we left the windows open which only opens so much because of child safety, and the room was still very warm at night. Beds very nice and comfortable. Just a pity about the heat. I would go back. It was a lovely break with my daughters.

We had a great stay at the Glenroyal hotel recently, I could not fault it in any ways but i have to say the highlights were the food and the friendliness of the team there. Katie on reception was a pleasure to deal with but i have to give a shout out to the bar team also who were very friendly and offered great knowledge with recommendations. Looking forward to booking in the future

Excellent hotel! Stayed here a number of times on business. Rooms have always been clean, tea/coffee along with bottled water topped up on a daily basis when the cleaners freshen up the towels and bedding. Great team, Leah has been helpful on a number of occasions. Breakfast buffet accommodates even the fussiest of eaters with a wide choice of options. Make use of the free gym and swim facilities, great place to relax after a busy day Hotel is within Maynooth itself so a great location to explore the local shops and soak up the atmosphere with a Guinness Until next time GoenRoyal, thank you

Easy parking Nice welcome Room was a little bit of a walk away but I don’t mind that. I think the rooms are being upgraded and unfortunately we were in the older part of the hotel - furniture a bit tired and marked, bathroom uninviting and carpets in the corridors heavily marked. Dinner in the restaurant was fabulous - seafood platter was heaven. Leisure facilities were ok - we managed a swim. Breakfast plentiful.
