Glenlo Abbey Hotel, Galway
Fantastic hotel
Just outside of Galway, but really close. The room was very spacious and clean. The bed was extremely comfortable, down bedding. Food and service were very good.

Perfect Vacation Stay
Glenlo Abbey was absolutely fantastic! The hotel itself is beautiful and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The night we checked in the girl (sorry forgot her name) gave us some dinner options and printed out a map to get us there. The breakfast was spectacular and more than we ever envision.

Impeccable, attentive and inviting . From the front desk to our room, the lounge and cuisine, all was outstanding. Cuisine was also wonderful. Would highly recommend and will definitely repeat on our next trip!

Beautiful hotel. It is like a castle
This stay was my second at Glenlo Abbey. It was just as wonderful as I remembered from a few years ago. I would definitely stay there again.
Beth, us1 night trip with friends
Glenlo Abbey Hotel, Galway
Everything was tremendous.
Absolutely top class service, from the moment we checked in to the moment we left. Every single person working in Glenlo was incredibly gracious and accommodating, with special kudos to Orla at check-in and Eamonn at dining service. The rooms were big and comfortable, and the hotel itself was amazing, with lots of lounge space, peat-burning fires, and beautiful grounds. The breakfast was tremendous, and the location perfect for proximity to Galway and launch-point to the Connemara. Hugely recommended!!!
