Once the ancestral home of one of Galway's most illustrious families, Glenlo Abbey is a stunning 5 star hotel, harbouring the best traditions of Irish country house hotels together with some cosmopolitan themes.

Glenlo Abbey Hotel is a feast of sumptuous rooms laid out with classical decor and period furnishings in perfect harmony with the original features of the house. Each of the hotel's classically set bedrooms are individually decorated to the very highest of standards offering refinement, luxury and tranquillity, with sweeping views across the grounds. Some suites boast luxuriant four-poster beds and Jacuzzi baths.

Dining at Glenlo Abbey offers some truly unique experiences. Fine dining is offered in the River Room, with the very best of international cuisine set among candlelit silver service, with Lough Corrib as a backdrop. While The Pullman Restaurant offers dining on board the Orient Express, with two of its original carriages, one of which was used in the making of Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express. Maintained in their 1920's state, the carriages of the Pullman transport you back in time, while the menu reflects a blend of European and Oriental cuisine.

The Abbey itself, which is now used extensively for weddings, was built in the 1790s as a private church for the Ffrench family and features stunning stained glass art work.
