Some background music would have been nice. Had given a weeks notice on special requirements and it wasn't fully carried out, and the substitute was missing a component. (Had to ask for crackers) Sandwich selection was tasty but do feel that there should have been more.(at least 2 of each instead of 1 of each) Salmon on brown bread very poor . Maybe a tea menu should b left on the table . The knowledge the girls shared about the different teas was great, service was good the girls were lovely and friendly. It was great not being rushed.

Amazing hotel, the grounds are fabulous. Staff are welcoming and friendly and very knowledgeable. Service was a bit slow and it was not busy but wouldn't put me off going back.

Pullman is a stunning experience with beautiful views. The food and its presentation were exceptional. Our wait staff, Conaire and Vitom were great, helpful and able to put us at ease in these difficult times.

We enjoyed a family lunch celebration on July 4th. The Glenlo Abbey staff took great care of us from the initial contact through making the reservation and looking after us on the day. Pleasant, professional and kind. Our lunch in the private room was delicious. Recommend.

We had a lovely evening at the Pullman restaurant during our stay at Glenlo Abbey. The restaurant itself is fabulous, the atmosphere and decor is something very different. The food was also amazing and the staff very nice. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Sandra at reception t us up for a lovely stay, following a super quick (friendly yet efficient) check in, which is ideal. The genuine and thoughtful service by so many staff was really exceptional. Far superior service here (in my experience anyway) to the service I have experienced in recognised 5 star locations such as Ashford, Adare, Shelbourne. Etc, And certainly a league ahead of wannabe 5 star locations such as Dromoland. I experienced Half a dozen nurally friendly, attentive, proactive, practical and considerate staff throughout our stay at the hotel. (Pullman restaurant waiting staff were not so polished and would benefit from more training). Atmosphere in general was good (nice, but not amazing - as guests seem to be very spread out- this can be great for privacy/relaxing, but can that makes it harder for the hotel to have a buzz/atmosphere). Loved the cinema room, when we found it. I think it’s fair value for money, with exceptional service

Glenloe Abbey has a luxurious yet relaxed atmosphere. All the staff are extremely friendly & helpful. I loved the experience dining in the Pullman Restaurant. It's unique & transported me to another era. ( it would have been even nicer if I could hear the background train noises better) Overall we had a lovely stay 😊

From start to finish the restaurant was incredible. The food was the best I have ever had. The staff were fantastic and the chef was very understanding and generous when I made an error with my main course order. The restaurant and hotel are a credit to the owner and staff.

We were dismayed to find that our reservation for the Pullman Restaurant was closed and our reservation cancelled..without any mention as to why. Unfortunately the restaurant was one of the reasons why we decided to spend the extra Euro’s to stay at the Abbey. It was closed, my wife didn’t get the experience she wanted, I was dismayed, the support staff were probably frustrated because they created a separate dinning experience that we did not want to attend because it wasn’t what we were going to pay for. Please put on your website that the Pullman is closed Sunday and Monday evenings in the Winter!! Please please please. Other than that we enjoyed the property and loved the bikes.

The most unique dining experience ever, absolutely loved the atmosphere and the original features of the carriage. Service and staff was excellent. Unfortunately food wasn't to my liking, in fairness to the chef we did ask for the duck and beef to be well done but it was rubbery and practically inedible, we ended up eating in the bar afterwards.

It's very poor value for money but you don't go there for value for money, it's more about the unusual setting. Even so, even by haute cuisine standards, the portion sizes are absurdly small. The staff change frequently which takes away from the atmosphere. And on our last visit earlier this week, we were overlooked in favour of the demands of a larger group which meant my companion's portion (of duck) was completely dried out and she didn't finish it. Overall, we weren't impressed. We've now had quite a few unimpressive visits to the carriages but as the management well know, the novelty is what people are paying for. It is an impressive setting but the food & the service, all too often let it down.
