Majestically rising from the still waters of Lough Corrib and dating back to the 18th Century, the 5 star Glenlo Abbey Hotel & Estate is where old-world charm meets contemporary elegance. Home to the Pullman Restaurant, two former carriages from the Orient Express and each with their own distinct history and style, this two AA Rosette Restaurant is one of the most unique dining experiences one can enjoy. The River Room Restaurant in the main hotel offers magnificent views from the bay windows overlooking the estate and Lough Corrib, whilst private dining can be arranged in the unique reception rooms of the main house and abbey.
With a 138-acre lakeside golf estate, golf among other activities is on your doorstep to enjoy. The unique Championship 9 Hole Golf Course is quickly becoming the best 9 holes in the country with rolling hills, lakes and fabulous views of Lough Corrib and it is the closest golf course to Galway City. The 21 Bay Driving Range is the ideal place to warm up before a round of golf but also for group and individual golf tuition.
While archery and some of the best fishing in Western Europe are easily organised right on-site on the Estate. Other activities that can be arranged near the property include horse riding, boating, water sports and tennis with the ancient sport of royalty – falconry onsite.
From the moment you drive through the magnificent cast-iron gates, the beauty of this enchanting lakeside estate overlooking Lough Corrib will captivate you.
