For the last few years our family have celebrated our elderly mothers birthday in west of Ireland hotels.This year we selected Glasson and we were extremely impressed by the quailty of food, friendliness & efficiency of staff, quality of accomodation etc.
We arrived on a wet windy Sat eve. to be greeted in the hotel reception by friendly reception staff and a warm turf fire.
We were also very impressed by the presence of the owners Mr & Mrs Tom Reid, who were more than anxious that we all had an enjoyable stay.
We stayed in a room overlooking the lake.We awoke next morning with a ball of red sun shining in the window.It seemed like a scene from the Indian Ocean, until you stepped outside to the cold wind blowing in off the lake.
There is a beautiful golf course attached to this hotel as well and well worth playing.I have played here a number of times. It was so cold on one occasion that Tom Ried plied the players down by the lakeside with hot whisky personally served from a golf buggy .Where would you find a more thoughtful example of customer service.
These are the friendly family touches attaching to this venue, which make it extra special.
We were so pleased that we booked the 2014 birthday celebration on the night.
Don't miss out on this gem of a hotel and golf course.
