Hotel of the week: Glenlo Abbey Hotel, Galway
I'm a video watch me !
Where: Glenlo Abbey Hotel, Galway
Why: Its one of the five star hotels in Galway so I was a little curious about it.
What : Golf course, there is also estate activities from falconry to yoga. There is also the Pullman Carriage which is converted into a restaurant and is famed from the film of Agatha Christies Murder on the Orient Express and has links with Sir Winston Churchill. The hotel also has another restuarant called the River Room and the Oak Cellar Bar which has a bar menu.
Whats there: Everything from suites to hotel rooms, golf and fine dining.
How: I drove from Galway city along the N59 and the hotel is on the left as you are heading out of the city.
How much: You can spend as much or as little as you want. You can stop by for food in the Oak cellar or else stay for a few days.
Experience: I love the grounds and found staff to be lovely, friendly and very helpful.
Pros: The grounds and the views over Lough Corrib are really beautiful even in winter. The actual building is lovely too. I love the little church I just think its so cute and inside its small but lovely so it would be nice for a civil ceremony. I also love the Pullman I think its such a cool idea and would love to go to dinner or afternoon there sometime. Its on my to do list.
History: Glenlo Abbey was built by one of the tribe families of Galway called the FFrenches in 1740.The house was originally called Kentfield House. In 1846 the estate was put up for sale and was brought by the Blakes another prominent Galway family who were one of the tribes. In 1897, another family called the Palmers purchased the house. In the 1980's the Bourke family purchased the house and converted it into a hotel.
