Glenlo Abbey Hotel and Estate

Traditional luxury and unforgettable dining on Ireland’s wild west coast

On the shores of Lough Corrib, through grand cast-iron gates and up a meandering driveway, the finest Irish hospitality awaits. Close to vibrant Galway City, Glenlo Abbey Hotel and Estate blends traditional elegance with unique dining experiences and a contemporary spa. 

Glenlo Abbey’s grandeur doesn’t stop at the gates: marble bathrooms, pillow-soft beds and luxurious fabrics set the stylish tone in its bedrooms and suites. Plump for views of the lough, or the 18th century abbey. Dine al-fresco on the Abbey Terrace, cosy up in the mahogany-panelled Oak Cellar Bistro, or relax over whisky and live music in Palmers Bar and Kitchen. For a truly unforgettable banquet, step aboard the Pullman Restaurant and enjoy a lavish meal in one of its two restored Orient Express carriages that rival the surrounding scenery in their splendour.

If you know your putters from your irons Glenlo Abbey’s Championship nine-hole course is the place to practice your swing; or try your hand at falconry, fishing or horse-riding in West Ireland’s wild landscapes. Once you’ve had your fill of fresh air, retreat to Glo Spa for a reviving treatment. Or hunker down in the cinema room with popcorn and cocktails, and enjoy a movie in ‘Glenlo Abbey’ style.

A charming and unique experience

We were in Ireland for only six nights celebrating our 29th anniversary. We had the pleasure of staying at Glenlo for one night. The room was spacious, inviting and had a wonderful view of the pullman car with the golf course in the background. We dined at the Bistro the evening of check in and loved Read more[SPLIT]Read lessit. It was cozy and romantic. Before we checked out, we spent amost two hours with Jason learning about Falconry. This was probably our favorite morning in Ireland. We would stay again.
