Dear Guest,

Welcome to our wonderful home at Glenlo Abbey which has been welcoming guests since 1740.

Nestled peacefully on a stunning 138-acre estate on the edge of Ireland’s largest lake, Lough Corrib, the 5* Glenlo Abbey Hotel & Estate offers the discerning traveller a warm, personable and luxurious base during their travels to Galway.

Our ‘piece de resistance’ comes in the form of our Pullman Restaurant, two former carriages that once served on the Orient Express. Savour our two AA rosette awarded fine dining experience in one of Ireland’s most unique and historic settings.

Be captivated as you meet birds of prey in our Falconry, bring your sense of wonderment alive with our Abbey movie theatretry your hand at Archery in the Walled Garden or fishing on Lough Corrib with our expert Ghillie. To further enhance your experience, our 9 Hole Championship Golf course is uniquely designed to challenge golfers of all levels. Let us re-energise you on your adventure.

The beautiful, rugged and unspoilt natural scenery of Connemara lies right on our doorstep and creates a soft and balanced contrast to the vibrant and eclectic surroundings of life in Galway City.

Glenlo Abbey Hotel and Estate have taken the difficult decision to temporarily close the hotel on Thursday 19th March as a precautionary measure to protect the health and wellbeing of our team, our guests, and our community. We hope that our action will support the efforts of the Government and the people of Ireland in the fight against Covid 19. Our plan is to reopen the hotel on the 29th March 2020, and we will be closely following all official government guidelines and recommendations.
Our Golf Course will continue to remain open but this may change in line with update requests from government guidelines. If you are looking for information about reservations or events please go to the  contact us section on our website and we will be happy to assist with your query. 

We look forward to welcoming you to our home in the near future and to creating lasting memories until you visit again.

Warm regards

Ronan O'Halloran
General Manager
