We stayed in four different locations while in Ireland and this was by far my favorite. From the time we walked into the reception area I felt welcome. Maybe it was the warm, inviting wood fire burning, maybe it was the relaxed yet always professional and pampered feeling from the staff, maybe it's that I just truly felt at home. Lovely decor, period looking but not "old" looking. Sandra at the reception desk was so approachable and so helpful, giving us directions, suggestions. She remembered our plans, always asking how our outings were, so cute. Our room was a bit smaller than our friends who were on a different floor but we didn't mind nor did we really feel it. The grounds are gorgeous! The Cellar Bar has delicious food and the staff was very friendly, accommodating, and honestly funny. We don't golf but if we did, how awesome to have the course right at the front door! Driving is required to get to Galway's City Center but ask for directions for parking once there and you're set. I can't say enough about Glenlo Abbey. I'd love to go back someday...
