"The train may not have left the station but, nevertheless, we embarked on an exquisite taste journey that wasn't just romantic, but one of the best dining experiences I have had in a very long time"

Lucinda O'Sullivan, February 2016


Galways most unique dining experience. Step back in time and dine aboard the Pullman Restaurant. Comprising of two original Pullman carriages, beautifully restored and set on the grounds of the hotel. 

Book a private booth or sit by the window with spectacular views overlooking Glenlo Abbey Estate and Lough Corrib.

There is a lounge/bar area leading to an open dining carriage and two private ‘coupes’ compartments, each seating up to six.
"Background ‘clackity-clack’ and hooting noises lend an authenticity to the experience and the romance is sustained by discreetly piped music of the 1940s and 50s. The view from the windows is of a coiffeured golf course, Lough Corrib and Connemara hills in the distance."
Georgina Campbell
Converted into a wonderful Restaurant Car without losing any of its original character, this historic Pullman train carriage had been residing at Elsenham Station in Hertfordshire, England, before joining the many and varied facilities already available at Glenlo Abbey Hotel Galway.
