“Bright Hotel in a Great Location for Dining and City Exploration!”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

With a rental car, we tended to book hotels during our trip that had a parking garage. The Glasshouse was no exception! It was easy to pull into the lot. We could roll our luggage right to the elevator and check-in - no carrying luggage up stairs makes me very happy!

Our room was bright and spacious. The bed could have been a bit fluffier - I recall it being very firm, but I still slept like a log!

If you don't want to pay for the breakfast at the hotel, there is a great cafe across the street (Osta) that has lovely scones and awesome cappuccinos (much cheaper too!)

Room Tip: You can park in the lot under the hotel and use the elevator to bring your bags up!

The Glasshouse is an uber- modern hotel along the river-walk in the heart of Sligo. The hotel is an excellent value for the price. It is located very close to many restaurant and pub options. Parking is in covered basement and easy to use. The room was very large, had a wet bar and frig. Ask for a corner room overlooking the river.

Room Tip: Ask for a riverfront room.

We usually stay in more intimate inns and B&Bs in Ireland but wanted an anonymous place to crash after driving in from the airport. They let us into our room early, and the floor was quiet for our naps. Then we were ready to tackle Sligo. The hotel was centrally located, had parking, and the front desk staff were helpful with suggestions and directions. The room was very comfortable. The breakfast was nothing to get excited about and a bit pricey, but it was so convenient we went back.

We would stay there again.

Room Tip: We requested a quiet room on the river front, and it was both, on a high floor.

Just sitting after having a large family dinner and spending alot of money. Very rude bar manager about children. He feel children should just sit and not move. Bar manager could do with a litte more manners as very not child friendly.

I had a two night stay. Every member of staff was efficient and helpful. Clean, spacious room on fourth floor. The breakfasts were excellent. Very close to town. Will stay here again and would recommend it to anyone staying in Sligo. Ticks all the boxes

Loved the decor of this hotel, very vibrant! rooms were very comfortable and spacious. handy location for shops and many restaurants/bars nearby. Staff very unfriendly so don't expect a warm Irish welcome here.Main issue for us was that the food that was served in the bar was diabolical. Definitely eat elsewhere as there are many better options on your doorstop

Dear Macidublin,

Thank you for your recent review of The Glasshouse.

We were very disappointed to read that you found the food and staff not up to standard. The usual high standards we uphold here were obviously not upheld during your stay and for this we apologise.

We hope this would not deter you from returning to the Glasshouse as you can read from the many good reviews we get here for great food and friendly staff.

If you wish to get in touch with any of the Management to discuss your stay please do not hesitate to contact us.

Kindest regards,

The Glasshouse Team
