Just completed a two night stay at Glenlo, and we cannot wait to return again at a future time. The hotel itself is graceful and beautifully laid out. The grounds are sweeping and pleasing to the eye, and the buildings are stately but warm. The rooms are amazing, with some of the best beds we have ever slept on in any hotel, and the public spaces a inviting and comfortable.
Most of all, the personnel are charming and eager to be of help. The heart and soul of the operation is the front desk manager, Maura Lee, who seems to be everywhere at once and knows every guest name within a few minutes. She is a treasure trove of knowledge about local lore and places, and willing to help guide travelers to interesting sights and sites.
The Pullman Restaurant is set in former rail cars of the Orient Express. The food is wonderful.
This place is delightful, and it should be on every Galway visitor's short list of destinations.
