having brought my father home to Sligo my partner decided that a treat was in store for me as well. He could not have picked a lovelier spot... stayed 2 nights with breakfast and a meal on the Orient Express train in front of the hotel. The reception staff all such lovely ladies and not forgetting Dan who give you all the information and help you could possibly need. We had a fabulous room with a view of the golf course and lake beyond .. yes there is no air con so opened up the windows which I found was adequate and am sure if you asked for a fan one would be available they give the guests what you want if you ask. Breakfast is more than adequate hot or cold and there is something to suit all tastes. The meal on board the train is divine. The chef needs to be commended, and also excellent service and very attentive without being a nuisance. We had the four poster bed room which has recently been refurbished by the looks of things and absolutely lovely. You get what you pay for and if things are a little overpriced for some then don't stay is my advice - if you want a 5 star break then this is the place and everyone deserves a treat from time to time and at some stage in your life then Glenlo is the place to be. I think the new owners have done a good job so far and my partner and I will be back. My partner does play golf and thought the course was adequate for a 9 hole course. Taxi fare into the City centre is around 10 euros - don't walk though - we did one day and needed a stiff drink on our return, its further than it looks. Thank you to all of the staff for making a break something to remember. Lynn and Robert Wroe.
