Activities at Glenlo Abbey

Glenlo Abbey's 138 acres of private estate is the idyllic setting for outdoor adventuring of all kinds. Walk or cycle through the grounds, as there is always something mesmerizing within sight, from the 18th Century Abbey, to the iconic Orient Express carriages, there are wonders at every turn. Or take to the water to fish for brown trout and salmon on Lough Corrib with our expert ghillie, as his 40 years of experience enlightens and inspires, guests return to land astounded by their experience of a lifetime.

If on-land activity is more to your fancy, take in the stunning scenery from a different perspective, enjoy a leisurely stroll along the shores of the West of Irelands largest lake. Or enjoy a birds-eye view with a falconry experience, learning about some of Ireland's most impressive birds of prey up close and personal, under the watchful eye of our experienced Falconry expert. Not to forget the Championship golf course, a playground for pros and beginners alike and if a round of golf seems too much, the Glenlo Abbey 21 bay Driving Range for those who prefer a little more action. Through the abbey gates, by saddle, boat or bike, we have an activity that we think you will like.
