Return trip

This was a return visit for myself and my sister, and before leaving we booked again for next year. Time stands still here and we adore the whole ambiance of the hotel. We dress for dinner aboard the Pullman restaurant, pure 1920's style, that's our choice as no dress code. Silver service, afternoon tea and old films...we keep coming back..

Glenlo Rocks

Pros: The ambinence of the hotel. The little complimentary treats & the food.
Cons: Turn the heat down a bit! Room got ectremely warm so we had to leave the window open and our room was at the back of the hotel which was a bit noisey.
Location: Galway city was nearby as was Salthill.
I spent one night in this fabolous hotel & it certainly lived up to my expectations. From the onset we were welcomed & shown to our room. The room was really bright & airy and the bed was extremely comfy. We dined in the bar & the food was decilious as was breakfast the next morning in the dining room. Would highly recommend a trip to Glenlo.
