The origins of Glenlo Abbey date from 1740 when the original house was built by the Ffrenchs, a wealthy merchant family. It is set on a spacious estate with wonderful views of Lough Corrib, yet only 5km from Galway City on the road to Connemara. Great care has been taken in the refurbishment of the house, with many of the public rooms retaining their proportions and many original features. Most of the accommodation is in a wing to the rear; suites and bedrooms are finished to a very high level, with some featuring lake or garden views. Guests have two restaurants from which to choose, The Pullman Restaurant aboard The Orient Express is a unique dining experience, made up of two carriages from the iconic railway. Golf is available on the estate, which also features stand-alone banqueting facilities.
