Stayed here for three nights early in January. Storms raged outside but we were cosy and comfy inside the hotel whether dining, relaxing by the fire or sleeping in our very nice room. We had dinner in the restaurant on two evenings. The dining room is beautiful, the food was delicious and the service professional and friendly. On the middle evening we tried the food in the bar and were not disappointed. It was very good and not expensive. Breakfasts were very nice with a good selection of fruit, cereals and breads from the buffet (though regrettably poor orange juice), a tasty selection of hot foods to order and plentiful supplies of fresh tea/coffee and toast.
During a break in the bad weather we enjoyed a nice walk in the grounds as far as the lake shore and back. Nice to have a chance to stretch the legs without leaving the hotel precincts.
The hotel is very comfortable and the food is very nice, but the whole experience is crowned by the warmth and helpfulness of the staff. You really feel like a guest, rather than just a paying customer, in Glenlo Abbey.
We booked another break at Glenlo before we left.
