We could not be happier to have had Dejan as our porter . He called on time for a early morning flight back to the U.S.A. When we went to the lobby Luggage in hand Dejan had made us fresh coffee to get us ready for another hectic flight. He then made travel cups for us to take a cup with us and helped us get our luggage into the car. What a guy Dejan, Thank You so much. That great help really brightened our morning and gave us a early morning smile. This is our second stay at Glenroyal and after this experience there will be a Third. Congratulations for having a employee who truly cares about his clientele. This is why we like staying there and the reception was very helpful as well. We will be back and again I say: THANK YOU DEJAN you are truly a very nice and caring man and we will never forget it. Sincerely, Tyler and Merryl Brandon, Florida

We wanted a quick, relaxing getaway from Dublin for just one night and Glenroyal delivered! After spending the morning shopping at the Kildare Outlets we arrived at the hotel a little earlier than expected. Although our room wasn't ready, there was no problem assigning us a different deluxe room. Once we dropped in our shopping bags we took a lovely walk along the canal and enjoyed rambling around Maynooth. Dinner in the Arkle was included in our package and we were blown away by the quality of the food - initially we thought it was a very limited menu choice of 3 starters/mains and dessert but none of the dishes we ordered disappointed. Breakfast too the following morning was excellent. The chef and team there are really terrific. Took in a visit to the adults only pool and spa the following morning and were delighted with that too. Staff throughout the hotel were so accommodating, pleasant and very helpful. We loved it so much we've decided to do it again before Christmas! Excellent quality and value and only a 30 minute drive from Dublin :)

As a regular Irish Hotel Stay Vacationer my stay in the Glenroyal was memorable for all the right reasons. Excellent and friendly staff in all quarters. Lovely comfortable bedroom and immaculate cleanliness throughout the hotel. Very impressed with not one but two top class leisure centres. One for adults only and one for families. I used both and loved them. The location of this hotel is ideal for travelling onwards to many destinations and plenty of complimentary parking. The highlight of my stay however was the amazing food in the Enclosure Restaurant. What a varied menu with a starter of Large Prawns cooked over coals the likes of which I have never eaten! A great selection of mains also with the grilled brill and shellfish sauce slowly cooked with crab claws.cockles and chervil being my choice. Wow is all I can say.. The quality of service was 5 star like the food. My compliments to this unreal Chef and your team in the kitchen as well as Akhil the restaurant manager who was brilliant.. at his job. Anyone living in or around Maynooth who hasn’t sampled that Enclosure experience is in for a real treat when you do so.I will be back and that’s for sure . The friendly atmosphere in this hotel is as good as I have come across and it’s all down to the positive attitude radiated by all the wonderful staff that I encountered? Continued success to you all.

Really excellent place to stay. I arrived minus luggage again (thank you Air France) and the hotel were so very helpful. Beautifully clean and well managed. Amazing food. Kid friendly too! The rooms are wrong designed and decorated with taste. Reception staff are especially efficient especially Katie and her colleagues.

What a wonderful hotel and leisure club! This was my base for a cycling break alongside the Royal Canal, which is right next to the hotel. The service was superb, with seemingly every member of staff welcoming, pleasant, good-humoured and helpful. I had two delicious evening meals in the restaurant and three very copious and healthy breakfasts, where I found the loud pop music a slight distraction! I also used the exceptionally well equipped gym and one of the two swimming pools, which was very atmospheric, illuminated in blue. Everything in the complex was very clean and correct. I would like to thank all the staff for my perfect 3-night stay. Diolch yn fawr! John G.

We stayed here for a few nights with our 1 year old, from start to finish the service was great! The food was delicious and the staff in the Arkle bar were so friendly! Our daughter was able to run about the lobby and the receptionists smiled and spoke to her, one male receptionist in particular gave our daughter a little toy which she didn’t put down the whole trip which was so kind of him! Such a great hotel and walking distance to the Main Street, also has a SuperValu right next to it which is really handy! The pool was also excellent, overall we had a fantastic stay and will definitely be back. It’s only a short 20 minute drive to Dublin zoo and there is a big soft play 5 mins away. We didn’t have any complaints, thanks for a great break!

Stay was excellent from start to finish. Great atmosphere in the bar on Friday evening followed by a fab meal. Great selection on the dinner inclusive menu. Prawns and steak with a minimal supplement. Emmet who served us was fantastic. Nothing was a problem and great banter and interaction. Good selection at breakfast. The only constructive criticism I could give is to have a second barista making coffees as the wait for coffees was the only thing that could be a problem. As a group of ladies away without kids and husbands we didn't mind the wait. Rooms are lovely and bathrooms have great showers along with nice rituals products. Didn't venture to the leisure centre but it looked great. Highly recommend The Glenroyal and will be back. Recommend for families also and great location based in the centre of Maynooth.

Our children bought us the weekend and tickets for the furys as a Christmas present.This is a very nice hotel the staff are super nice the breakfast had great selection hot and cold food. As my husband in his 70s has had surgery and is in a air cast boot we requested a accessible room which was provided. It’s not until you need an accessible room you realise how important the bathroom set up is. The problem was the distance from the room to the reception which was identified at check in but no solution was found. The room was fine the beds really comfortable and clean. The bathroom is really in need of a disabled assessment. There are lots of grab bars but no shelf no toilet roll holder and the wash basin is tiny how anyone in a wheel chair would manage at the sink is a mystery. There was a half a shower curtain around the shower which was accessible. The safe was on the floor of the wardrobe simply impossible to access unless you lay on the floor! There are no storage drawers in the room. All that being said we had a lovely weekend and big shout out to James in the function room who placed two chairs at the back of the room against the wall so my husband would have no problems with mobilising.

Well let's start by saying would only give 2 maybe 3 stars couple of reasons. 1)on checking in the manager mayby front of house checked us in and during the checking in on more than 1 occasion was asked to bear with her not good enough never seen anything like it trying to look after 3/4 people instead of dealing with 1. 2)my daughter booked this as a present but as signing in the price was shown which could of been hidden before hand. 3)my daughter was asked was there any special request my daughter said yes my dad's 50th birthday usually when asked this there is a complimentary drink r cake plate in room but nothing only a happy birthday upon check in. 4) breakfast the fried eggs were not fully cooked went back up to get scrambled egg and that was swimming on plate. 5)coffee machine in room but no pods 😕
