Glasson Country House Hotel & Golf Club
Ranked #1 of 9 Hotels in Athlone
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 April 2013

The first thing I noticed was the smiles on the faces of the reception staff. We checked in without a hitch. We were attending a wedding reception with our 4 month old daughter so requested a quiet room. We were very happy with what we got. Room 122 at the end of the corridor, opposite side of the hotel to the wedding celebrations. Travel cot supplied by the hotel was already in place, fresh linen provided, including spare sheet for baby mishaps.
I stayed in the room with my child while my wife celebrated with her friends. She asked for my dinner to be sent to the room and without any fuss, it arrived hot.

Breakfast was great, buffet but willing to do poached/fried eggs etc if you wanted, plenty of fresh fruit and yoghurt. The dining room has magnificent views over Lough Ree and the first nine holes of the on site golf course designed by Christy OConnor junior.

The hotel is a bit out of town, you would need a car and Athlone is the nearest big town, about 15 minutes driving. So, if you want a spot to be away from it all, this will do, if you want a spot to be driving distance from everywhere in Ireland, this will also do.

I'll be heading back, this time with my golf clubs in the boot of the car.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view. The Lake is beautiful.

Stayed overnight for a wedding on april1st brave day to marry!! and found the hotel and surrounds of a really good standard the golf course is a gem with breathtaking views over the lake .Bedrooms and beds were really good and the breakfast was the best i have ever had and even included baked beans which was a result as my pet hate with hotels who strive to be exclusive and posh is their reluctance to have baked beans on the breakfast menu. Glasson hotel proves you can be classy posh brilliant and still have beans with your breakfast well done will certainly return and recommend .If i was to be picky a swimming pool/leisure centre and maybe an outdoor hot tub would turn this really good hotel into heaven.!! The food and service at the wedding was also as the title suggests top class.

We had our wedding here in February 2013 and it was fantastic. With a stunning location looking out over the lake, the views are maximised with huge windows in both the bar/restaurant areas and the function room. The staff are all very friendly, professional and helpful. In the lead up to the day and on the day itself they couldn't do enough for us and our guests. The food was delicious and plentiful, the wine also! Everything was just perfect and we wouldn't change a thing. The village of Glasson is a short taxi trip away with some lovely pubs and great food, for a nice change of scenery. Many of our guests loved the venue so much that they said they'd go back for a weekend - a few commented that it was "a hidden gem". I know we'll be back!

Room Tip: The views from lake view rooms are stunning

I brought my parents to Glasson Golf for Sunday lunch recently. Our table was looking out to the lake. I thought the surroundings were absolutely magnificent but I was very impressed at the welcome and attention we got from our server. At a time when many places don't seem to care about their customers she was superb. The food was good too. I think we ended up being there for well over two hours and left well fed and relaxed. We'll definitely be back.

This is our tenth year coming here, and each year it gets better, if that is possible! Nothing is too much trouble, the staff are just out of this world. This is a very special place for us as we are three sisters with our Mother. So for us each year is more special, and it is made that way for us, as we get an upgrade in our rooms, and the attention we get while we are there, is just fabulous.It is a little bit of peace on earth! To Fidelma, Julie, Marie, Stav, Gareth and Dermot and all the rest THANK YOU.
