Glenlo Abbey Hotel photoThe Glenlo Abbey Hotel has been host to at least one U.S. First Lady. Just north of Galway at the gateway to the bucolic picturesque glens of the Connemara region, the Glenlo Abbey Hotel offers 48 bedrooms and suites in a former grand manor of the ancestral estate of the Ffrench Family, Golf at Glenlo Abbey Hotel photoone of Galways famous "tribes". Built in 1740 with its own attached chapel, “the Abbey” The estate went through a few owners until the Bourke family renovated the property and turned it into Galway's only 5 star hotel opening to guests in 1992. The Glenlo Abbey Hotel is in a quiet setting in the upscale Galway suburb of Bushypark, surrounded by its private golf course which overlooks the Lough Corrib lake, with the vibrancy of Galway ten minutes away and centrally located for exploring the west of Ireland, with the Cliffs of Moher to the Croagh Patrick, Ireland’s holy mountain locally known as the “Reek”and legenday Galway Bay within easy day trip reach.

Relaxing in the manor’s library is like a return to the grand Edwardian era. The Glenlo Abbey Hotel is home to one of Ireland’s most noted and unique restaurants - The Pullman Restaurant - created from a Glanlo Hotel hall photobrace of former Orient Express Pullman Rail Coaches set behind the hotel manor house at the edge of the golf greens. The main dining car was formerly a first class Parlour Car with rich wood décor of its bygone era. The menu on the Pullman Restaurant reflects a sample of the destinations of the world famous Orient Express. It is only open on weekends and reservations are definitely recommended. The River Room Restaurant in the hotel offers award winning cuisine in an elegant old world setting and the Oak Cellar Bar below floors offers a chance to mix with locals who regularly come to watch sporting events over a pint in the warm cozy environment, out of the sometimes challenging West Irish Coast weather.

Pullman Restaurant Galway photoThe hotel is popular for weddings and offers several options from the Pavilion Room to the Abbey, (secular events only) and the Pullman Restaurant. The Abbey was a private chapel built very close to the main house because the manor’s owner was an invalid, accessed through a closed walkway entrance. The Abbey construction was started in 1790 but was never completed and the chapel was not consecrated as a church. The hotel can be used as a base for hunting and fishing in the unspoiled wilds of Connemara famed for its use as a typically Irish background for the John Wayne film “The Quiet Man”.
