Set aboard two original carriages from the Orient Express

Ireland's most unique dining experience. Step back in time and dine aboard the Pullman Restaurant. Comprising of two original  carriages of Orient Express, beautifully restored and set on the grounds of the hotel. Enjoy the luxury of a private booth or sit by the window and take in the spectacular views overlooking Glenlo Abbey Estate and Lough Corrib.

Converted into a wonderful restaurant car retaining all 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 & Estate Galway.

A 2 AA rosette award winning restaurant, the Pullman Restaurant is certainly a dining experience like no other.

Please note that inline with Government Guidelines, and for the health and safety of both our guests and staff, Pullman Restaurant has extended its opening hours and affords diners space in line with social distancing.

"Set in two exquisite original carriages from the Orient Express, we sat in a dreamy carriage with inlaid wood panelling, antique lace curtains and fine china, dining on confit duck, foie gras and beluga lentil jus."

Lucinda O'Sullivan

"I was initially wary of dining in the Pullman. Maybe I pre-imagined it akin to many 'themed' establishments, as gimmicky with mediocre food propped up by knick-knacks and false bonhomie. Nothing could be further from the truth. The experience was charming, the ambience absorbing and the food good enough to tempt me back the next time I am in the vicinity."

Ernie Whalley

"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."
