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.

Lovely experience but although the food LOOKED amazing, it just didn't TASTE amazing! It was a little bland, in all honesty, and for the that money, I would expect every morsel to be a delight! The service was great. However, just a problem with one waiter in that there was a strong smell of BO from him. We had our children with us and they were catered for really well, so I was delighted it was such a lovely experience for them.

The staff of Glenlo Abbey couldn't do enough to make our stay special. I cannot thank them enough. Our stay was exactly what we were expecting - high quality, and an example to others on how to run a hotel. Would recommend this hotel to anyone.

We dined in the Orient Express cars on the Hotel grounds- the experience was awesome, and the wait staff was top notch. The food is a little out of the ordinary, but very tasty.

Speisen waren sehr gut zubereitet und angerichtet. Atmosphäre toll. Weinkarten standen andere Jahrgänge als serviert worden sind (ohne Begründung und anderem Preis) Flaschenwein zu teuren im Einstiegspreisen. Personal zu Beginn sehr bemüht, dann leider stark nachgelassen. Es wurde nicht mehr bedient, im Abteil wurde durchgelüftet (bei 13 Grad Außentemperatur). Fazit: Essen sehr toll, bloß lässt die nicht ganz abgewogener Weinkarte und das mit der Zeit stark nachgelassene Personalverhalten einen etwas laschen Eindruck zurück, um die doch sehr spannende Location direkt weiterzuempfehlen.

Just returned from a very enjoyable mid- week stay in Glenlo Abbey. The hotel exudes a mellow calm ambience which is most attractive if you are in need of a relaxing break. We were really impressed by the staff all of whom were exceptionally courteous , friendly and provided a high level of service. Our room was very clean and comfortable with wonderful views of the Pullman carriages and the championship golf course.We thoroughly enjoyed the fine dining experience in the Pullman and all the historical details provided by our charming waiter Vito.Our introduction to falconry with Jason, was a truly exceptional experience. He was patient ,enthusiastic and informative as well as very entertaining. Well worth giving it a try! The hotel was also very convenient for visiting both Galway city & touring Connemara .Enjoyed ourselves enormously and we will definitely be back .
