This is a beautiful property with so much to offer. The large lobby and reception rooms feel like you are stepping back in time. You can go to the abby theater and watch a movie, dine in an original Orient Express dining car, golf, experience a falcon, and much more. Staff were very accommodating, our room was spacious and modern with a comfortable king bed. Breakfast was included, offering many dishes from buffet or Ala carte. Definitely recommend you dine at the Pullman Restaurant.

This property was super communicative through the whole process. I received confirmation emails, a confirmation call a week before our stay, and a confirmation call when I was in bad service area the day of and ran late for check-in. The held our spot at their sister restaurant (not the Pullman, unfortunately because they were already booked), but it was still an excellent dining experience, with helpful staff and delicious food. Our room was clean, and the check-in and out processes were quick and easy. They even had bellhops who assisted with our luggage! Everyone was super friendly, efficient, and supportive of our stay. I'll definitely make a point to stay here again next time I plan a trip to Ireland.

The property was beautiful and the staff was really excellent. They were attentive to our every need and went out of their way. Breakfast was delicious and you had a beautiful view of the golf course and grounds. We also did the Fslconry which was a great experience and Jason who was the guide was wonderful.

Glenlo Abbey is a unique hotel experience from the moment of arrival to the moment one leaves; the service provided by the professionally friendly staff is incredible; they do everything possible to make the stay stress-free and enjoyable. Our dinner at their restaurant, Pullman, housed in actual railroad cars from the Orient Express was one of the highlights of our stay. The guest rooms and public sitting areas evoke the opulence of the gilded age ala Downton Abbey.
