Glenlo Abbey Hotel is situated 4kms/2miles from Galway City Centre on the N59 to Connemara. Situated on its own 138 acre lake side golf estate, Glenlo Abbey is Galway's first 5 star "Failte Ireland" rated property and is the perfect base for touring the West of Ireland. Its owners Peggy and John Bourke bought Glenlo Abbey and the surrounding land in 1984 and lovingly restored it to open as a 20 bedroom hotel in 1992 and later increased to its present 46 bedrooms & suites.
There are many lovely features about the property. The main house itself dates back to 1740 and was built by the French Family who were one of Galway's Famous Fourteen Tribes who ruled the City for centuries. The stone cut Abbey was built in the 1790's but was never actually consecrated. The many sitting rooms and library are a testament to another era and The Pullman Restaurant aboard the Orient Express is truly Ireland's most unique restaurant. Situated behind the first tee, The Pullman Restaurant is a special experience and has a long history dating back to 1927.
Glenlo Abbey Hotel's location on the shores of Lough Corrib, make it an obvious attraction for all year fishing but particularly the trout & salmon season. The onsite golf course and the close proximity to many of Ireland's great golf courses make this family run hotel a great base when touring the West of Ireland.
