"Very nice Stay"
Second time we have stayed here. We enjoy everything about it and my Lady looked forward to fresh scones and tea at four o'clock along with the champagne and Paul on the piano. Wonderful place with wonderful people. Just remember it is a very wonderful old building.

"Lovely hotel"
Amazing experience, staff were so nice and friendly. Champagne meet and great on our first night was amazing with free flowing champagne, my glass was never empty! Receptionists were so helpful and helped organise our day trips, booking cabs for us and finding bus times. Local area cosy and friendly, overall great trip! already planning our next visit!

"A tad expensive for what you get"
We stayed on the 14th February 2015 for 1 night. The staff are friendly and there is a talking parrot - but I didn't hear it speak. We had a champaign and crackers reception at 6 which was nice with a piano playing in the background. We also had are dinner in the Resturant which for me I was a little disappointed. Although it been Valentines day we received chocolate and a photo of the 2 of us as a gift. Desert was lovely though. Breakfast in morning was self serving. All in all maybe not completely value for your money

"A lovely family run hotel!"
Everyone in the Abbeyglen was extremely friendly and welcoming. We were starved when we arrived and ordered some room service of soup and sandwiches, the guy who made them left us off the price as we were missing the complimentary afternoon tea & scones! The managers who we met at dinner, having skipped the champagne reception also made sure we got a glass! Dinner was gorgeous and breakfast extended a little later than the times stated which was great as we were a little late getting down. So accomodating and a beautiful room. We will definitely visit again in the future, but plan to stay for longer!

"Beautiful setting - lovely staff"
The hotel is set in a beautiful location and the view from our bedroom was spectacular. The staff were extremely friendly, helpful and most efficient. Breakfast was fabulous - all you could wish for, from full cooked to lighter varieties. Clifden is a small but busy town with some lovely bars and restaurants. All types of music with a leaning towards Irish, which we loved. The scenery is spectacular in the area and we highly recommend a visit to the Connemara National Park for some great walks and, again, very friendly helpful staff. After dinner, we would return to the hotel ( if not dining in ) and join the guests in the bar for a night of music, supplied by the very able variety of pianists for a sing-song. A great atmosphere, which is what you expect with the Irish!

"Hotel full of character"
This hotel is full of charm and character. It's something a little different to the usual airport-style generic hotel. Its guests seem to return year after year, like they've discovered a secret gem. We booked a standard room which had a four poster bed, an open gas fire, a free standing bath as well as a separate shower and two sinks in the bathroom. Overall, the hotel could do with some new carpets etc but it sort of adds to the old-worldliness charm. The breakfast is very good. We went into town for dinner but were told by other guests that the food in the restaurant was excellent and very reasonable. The bar was fairly lively on Saturday night with music and dancing. The crowd seemed to be aged 40+ and all out for a good laugh. You can walk to Clifden down a hill. It's less than half a mile away and the road is fairly dark but the area is very safe. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. We'll be back in the Summer!

"THE place to stay in Clifden"
We stayed here over 10 years ago and were wary that the hotel may not have been maintained well. We were wrong. The entire experience was excellent, from the service, to the room, to the complimentary tea/scones each afternoon, the complimentary champagne each night - we totally recommend this hotel for a break in west Galway.

Staying at this Castle Hotel was one of the highlights of our trip to Ireland. I recommend it highly to anyone traveling the west coast of Ireland. It is a bit out of the way but the scenery on the drive make it more than worthwhile.

"A Welcoming Environment"
This hotel has terrific character. The room was excellent with a superb view. Entry was welcoming with a turf fire in the entry foyer and a complimentary afternoon tea. A champagne reception was provided later with a history of the castle provided. The restaurant was absolutely wonderful and service for hotel guests was personalized. Breakfast was top end.

"Great Hotel - Would Recommend It"
We had a very nice large room with a great view. We stayed 5 nights and enjoyed the "extras" such as free tea and scones at 4pm and free champagne at 6.30pm. The food is plentiful both at breakfast and dinner, perhaps a greater variation of the dinner menu wouldn't have gone amiss as it seemed to be a bit samey over the 5 nights but that is me really being a bit picky. Brian and his father are great hosts and put a lot of effort into interacting and pleasing their guests. The hotel is a great base from which to explore the area. Stanley the parrot in reception is a class act!

"Would do it agian!"
Arrived just as the restaurant was closing but they called up and we had our meal. Brian greeted us and remembered our names for the rest of the stay. Went to have a drink in the pub at 9:30pm and ended up staying until 2am singinging and listening to jokes with a group of Dubliners. Great advice on where to go and what to do in the area from the locals. Made our trip! Don't miss it!

2.0 / 5Fair
Nur der angrenzende Golfplatz und die zwei Hubschrauberlandeplätze zeugen noch von dem Glanz vergangener Zeiten. Im Inneren dagegen ist dieser im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes von einer dicken Staubschicht überzogen. So war unserer Zimmer alles andere als sauber: staubige Lampenschirme, hinter den Nachttischen wurde wohl schon lange nicht mehr sauber gemacht und in der Badewanne lagen noch die Fußnägel von vorherigen Gästen. Das Personal ist zwar bemüht, die Gäste bei Laune zu halten, allerdings war der Service vor allem im Restaurant meist langsam und unaufmerksam. Das Preis/Leistungsverhältnis halte ich für sehr schlecht, auch im Restaurant entsprechen die sehr gehobenen Preise keinesfalls der Qualität des Menüs. Um das Gesamtbild unseres Aufenthaltes abzurunden tauchten dann beim CheckOut noch zwei Posten auf der Rechnung auf, die nachweislich falsch waren. Anstatt einer höflichen Entschuldigung mussten wir uns auf eine Diskussion einlassen. Mein Eindruck war, dass hier ganz gezielt versucht wurde, noch ein paar Euros mehr rauszuholen.

"Tres bon séjour"
Tres bon hotel. Des notre accueil une personne qui parle français nous a conseillé une petite promenade a faire autour de l'hotel. Puis nous avons été convié à un apéritif offert par la maison (avec petit four et coupe de champagne) pendant lequel le maître d'hotel est venu nous parler de l'histoire de la ville et des environs. Restaurant très bon sans non plus aller dans la grande cuisine (le soda bread home made est tres tres bon). Service impécable et sans chichi. Bref, un personnel très accueillant ce qui est assez rare dans ce genre d'hotel qui est parfois très neutre. Les chambre sont impécables, spacieuse avec le cachet de l'ancien (même la TV est un peu ancienne ;) ). A noter que l'hotel est assez éloigné du centre de la ville de Clifden, mais sur la "sky road" qui est la route offrant des vues superbe sur la ville.
