There is a great fireplace near the reception area that we enjoyed reading/ relaxing by. Beds are super comfortable! We did the falconry lessons which was one of our favorite...

We have just returned from a two-night Pullman Package stage at Galway's delightful Glenlo Abbey. A very enjoyable stay in elegant surroundings in a hotel that caters beautifully to its residents. Of particular note are the hotel staff who were always very courteous and attentive. Every one we met was extremely warm and hospitable and nothing was too much trouble....

We went to the hotel as guests for a wedding in December 2016 and had a fantastic time from start to finish. The hotel had been bedecked with Christmas decorations and it was stunningly beautiful.
