One of Galway's finest hotels, dating back to 1740 and built by the Ffrench Family, one of Galway's Famous 14 Tribes who ruled the City for centuries. Set amidst 138 acres of parkland on the shores of Lough Corrib, beautifully appointed rooms and suites combine with wonderful food, a friendly bar, as well as a golf course and a very unusual restaurant. Fishing, boating and golf are just some of the charms of staying at Glenlo Abbey Hotel. Comprising an 18th century house and a separate abbey, the hotel has an air of understated elegance. A substantial collection of antiques combine with modern works of arts by local artists to create a stylish effect. But, the really unique aspect of this hotel is the Pullman Restaurant. A restored Pullman carriage, and star of the legendary film Murder on the Orient Express, has been transformed into a fusion restaurant. The country setting belies its close proximity to Galway City. You can go shopping in the morning and spend the afternoon shooting clays, fishing, or playing golf. End the day in the Oak Cellar Bar for lively conversation with the locals and spectacular views over looking Lough Corrib. Glenlo Abbey Hotel is a Small Luxury Hotels of the World property.
