"Amazing!!!"
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!

"Not a castle"
Dinner was good and great evening reception. However,did not meet the image of a castle which was presented online. Area of hotel was quite boring.

"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!

"The Wow Factor"
This was just an overnight break, but boy, with a difference. Friendliness, complimentary Coffee & Scones on arrival, comfort, great service, great staff, hands on Owner, excellent food for our meal, they even sang Happy Birthday to me after with a lovely meringue nest c/w sparklers. Now what more could a body ask for. Well yes, of course not to forget the talking Parrot in the Lobby. Also Very Friendly :-))) What a Fab place this is to Stay. We Will Be BACK. Many Thanks to you all in Abbeyglen.

The hotel owner and staff was extremely friendly. The interior of the hotel is not 4star standard to our opinion and a little worn out. Overall we had a pleasant stay.

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.

"A Delightful Stay!"
07/26/15 edodson630 Slidell, Louisiana
What a charming castle to stay in! We were greeted by Paul who took pictures of us in the king's chair at the entrance. Then we were treated to a champagne reception! Dinner followed which was spectacular. The entire staff is so friendly. My room was very comfortable; I didn't want for anything. The grounds are gorgeous; well manicured with beautiful flowers everywhere. There is a lovely sitting area outside with a fountain as well as tennis courts. If you're looking for an overnight stay in a castle this is the place!

"Quirky but nice"
07/22/15 12cameron Melbourne, Australia
This is an odd place to stay but we enjoyed it. It is a semi-castle which encourages you to stay for dinners where they have leprechauns jumping around which may be nice but seemed a bit touristy for us so we ate in town at a great place called Guy's Place. However the hotel/castle is in a lovely surrounding with a nice bar and a very friendly host who makes everyone feels a home. The downside is that it has no internet in rooms, only in the hotel foyer. It is only a five minute walk into the lovely town of Clifden with great bars and restaurants. Also the hotel is on the edge of the stunning Sky loop which must be one of the best drives in Ireland. So I think, on balance this is a good place to stay.

"Great Stay, would definitely return"
07/21/15 Andrew P
We spent a Sunday night here, unfortunately it was raining heavily so we didn't get to roam around the property too much. But the hotel was very cheerful and fun, nice spacious rooms. Showers and bath tub were great. Check out the bar, at least the night we were there, people come from all around to sing around the piano.

"Your eyes (Irish or not) will shine here"
07/20/15 HighcroftManor Toronto, Canada
What a lovely, warm, hospitable and comfortable inn this is. Very warm and helpful welcome after a long drive from Dublin, followed by a really friendly complementary champagne reception. And what a room! I believe we had the best room in the castle, complete with a private balcony between 2 turrets. And the room was simply huge. We were totally charmed. We were here for 2 nights in early July, and really can't say enough about how great it was. Dinner in their restaurant was first rate, and breakfast was excellent. It's a very short walk into town, so no need to use your car. This castle was truly "royal".

"A Fabulous Family Holiday"
07/20/15 SammO985 Connecticut
From the moment we arrived, it was like we wandered into a movie. The grounds and castle settings were lovely and the welcome history talk/champagne reception in the pub was fantastic. The food was superb and we were treated like family rather than guests. The owners were on hand day and night so you knew you were in good hands. Clean but keeping in the tradition of old world charm. They even packed us a travel breakfast for us when we had to leave early. Free of charge and delicious!!

"Very romantic"
07/07/15 Shanna R Greeley, Kansas
We were instantly mesmerized upon opening the door to our room. Our room was very large with a four poster bed, fireplace, and beautiful bathroom. Fluffy bathrobes were provided. We only got to stay one night, but we enjoyed a wonderful supper and a feast for breakfast. We would love to return here again. Wifi was only available in the public areas.

"Great Hotel in an Amazing City"
07/07/15 rolling13 rolling13
This Castle Hotel is exactly what I was hoping for in a place like this. They have left the charm of the original Castle vibe. The front desk staff is amazing. They gave us a tour of the hotel upon arrival and where helpful at every step. The bartender in the bar is amazing. I have forgotten his name, but he is very helpful if you have questions about a particular whiskey or the area. Do not miss the free Persecco reception as he will tell you tales of the city and the Castle. If I go back to Ireland this hotel will be on my list.

"Abbeyglen Castle Hotel"
07/06/15 Donna W Chicago, Illinois, United States
We had a family and friend's group of 30 arrive at the Abbeyglen for 2 nights. Most of the accommodations were wonderful except for the single rooms. They are located on the top floor of the castle and are small and should not be used for sleeping rooms. Very disappointed about that. As far as the rest of the rooms, everything else was fine. We had dinner both nights at the castle and the food was delicious. We were well taken care of and the people working there go above and beyond.

"Maura was awesome!"
07/04/15 Jnjevio
We arrived late to Abbeyglen Castle, and we were greeted by who we believe is the kindest woman in Ireland. She was concerned that we hadn't eaten, and since all the restaurants were already closed, Maura personally made sandwiches for us and delivered them and some delicious desserts to our room. We have never experienced such personal service in all our years of traveling! The castle was wonderful with such splendid character! We can't wait to return!
