My wife, 11-month old son, and I along with my mother and brother spent two nights here during our Ireland vacation in early August. We were in town to attend a wedding. The reception happened to be right here. Everything about Glasson is top of the line. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. The grounds were professionally maintained. The bar, lounge, and reception room were amazing. Nothing to be disappointed with at all.

recently attended a family wedding at Glasson Country House Hotel and Golf Club. Both the golf coarse and the hotel surpassed our expectations and we wouldn't hesitate to book a stay again if we found ourselves in the area.

Room Tip: Wonderful lake views and glorious scenery to be enjoyed if you request the correct rooms.

We have spent a few great days in the hotel and enjoyed every minute even though the weather wasn't too good. the staff were all very friendly and helpful, the rooms lovely overlooking the golf course and the food excellent.
we played golf on our last morning and look forward to playing it again on our next visit

Room Tip: The rooms on the first floor, overlooking the golf course and lake are worth asking for.

Not only was the rooms amazing but the staff were great too. We stayed at Glasson for a family party and we were not disappointed at all. The food was wonderful and the scenery was amazing. The rooms are spacious even with four people in one room, we had a enough room where we did not feel like on top of each other. They also were very accommodating for our needs for our family party- they even set up aTV and DVD player so the kids could watch movies while the parents were continuing eating dinner.

Firstly the Cavan gang would like to apologise to Marie and the rest of the staff for the delay in writing this review, life just caught up with me.
Myself and my husband (Stephen) stayed in the Glasson Country House Hotel in July for a mid week break and what a stay we had. From booking the room on the phone with Marie to checking out with Aileen I cannot praise the staff in this hotel enough. Everybody that we met went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable, from housekeeping supplying extra toiletries, waiting and bar staff looking after us with good food and Marie booking a restaurant and taxi for us. On arrival we were upgraded to a suite which was fantastic, a huge room with amazing views over Lough Ree. The hotel is set in such a peaceful and quiet setting that all you can do is relax, which is just what we did. Food was great and I also thought that the break was great value for money but what really sets this hotel above others is the friendliness of the staff. It is very evident that it is a family run hotel and that everybody working there cares about their guests. I cannot praise this hotel enough, we said that we will be back and personally I cannot wait until out next break there. To everybody there keep up the good work.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for a room overlooking Lough Ree.

Dear MaryMeg,
Thank you so much for your glowing review, I have passed on your review to all our Staff so they are aware how much their hard work is appreciated. As you say in your review "what really sets this hotel above others is the friendliness of the staff" and this is so true. We know we have an amazing location and product but without amazing staff it would be wasted. Marie asked me to say a special thank you.

We look forward to extending the Warm Glasson welcome to you in the near future and thank you once again for your glowing review.

Regards
Fidelma Reid

Excellent hotel with a great golf course. A true Irish welcome from the staff. The rooms were very comfortable and the food was really good. Within easy reach of Dublin. Four wedding parties when we were there but did not interfere with our golfing group. A lovely place with stunning views all round - lakes on every side of the golf course.

Fed up of the dreary summer weather we decided last minute to take a break away and we couldn't have choosen better. Had heard about the hotel and as it was only a 1.15 min drive from Dublin we decided that it was just the perfect option - a break away but only a short drive.... The loction is second to none - what a view over the lake surrounded by the beautiful golf course. The rooms were huge and so comfortable - great bathrooms too. Had dinner and it was delicious. The staff were really lovely - genuinely friendly and hospitable. Wedding on that night in the ball room which is above the dining room - wonderful location for a wedding but the good thing for us not being guests was that it did not impinge on our stay at all - sound proofing obviously a good investment as we heard nothing all night! Highly recommend the hotel - I'm not a golfer but if I were I am sure I would have been delighted to have found this hotel and golfing resort. We'll be back...

Room Tip: New wing rooms - further from main hotel but views are terrific
