At Glenlo Abbey Hotel, we appreciate the need to treat one’s pooch to the occasional night away and therefore extend a warm welcome to all dogs, big and small. With onsite kennels available and a 138 acre estate with numerous walks, it is the perfect place for a break away with your beloved furry four legged family member.

Dogs, however, are not permitted in the public areas of the hotel or in the guest bedrooms, but have complete access to the hotel grounds under supervision.

Guests can also enjoy afternoon tea in the conservatory, where dogs are also permitted under supervision.
