This is an old building but is well kept, immaculately clean and beautifully decorated. The grounds are very picturesque with a great view from some rooms. The staff were friendly and it has the feel of a big happy family house. There are lots of little extras like free scones and coffee in the afternoon. The evening meals were excellent although breakfast was a little bland. Frodo the parrot was a highlight. Overall though it was a great experience. Collapse

We visited the Abbeyglen Castle Hotel Clifden in November and we had an absolutely wonderful time there - great hospitality and wonderful food. Paul Hughes and staff made us feel very welcome and at home . We were served afternoon tea and later a champagne reception where you can mingle with guests. In fact I lost my watch while staying there but wasn't sure where and low and behold some weeks later I got a call from Ann a member of staff to say the watch had been found. I was delighted as I had won it in a golf competition. Well done for your honesty and thank you Collapse

My wife and I stayed here for one night at the end of November 2017. We both loved the hotel and surrounding areas, even for All it’s faults. And there are a few!! When we pulled into the car park we were immediately met by a member of staff who came to greet us and to take our bags to the room, nice friendly old school greeting. After check in we were shown straight to our room which was right beside the lift so I was worried about noise of the lift and people passing in the night but I needed not have worried, inside the room we couldn’t here a thing outside the room. The room itself has a few faults, main one that bothered me was the iron and ironing board were attached to the wall behind the tv unit so I had to move the heavy unit to iron my shirt for dinner but when I moved it I noticed it was hiding a filthy leaking air vent, very out of place in such a nice hotel. Some of the furniture in the room is flirting with shabby as opposed to old/antique, the main table, the vanity unit, the “couch”. I will say here that although the room was like that I would have no problem staying here again and have no problem recommend this hotel to anyone. The bathroom was spotless, loads of towels, washies, and a awesome powerful shower and bath like a swimming pool, although not too sure about the decor!! The hotel has a great champagne reception every evening at 6 in the main bar, completely free, we had champagne, goats cheese, brie, and local smoked salmon on crackers, while listening to a short talk on the hotel and local area, lovely touch. After the reception we went upstairs to the restaurant, the menu was small but still had something for everyone, I had the duck which was great flavour although fairly small portion but I filled up on the ample spuds and veg, the price was fairly competitive too. THE DESSERT TABLE, makes any travel/price worth the journey to this hotel, mention this to anyone who’s stayed here and they will say the same!!! A plethora of home made delightful ness Breakfast the next morning was mixed, no problem with the selection/amount of food at the buffet but the quality is very mixed, bacon was amazing but sausages were terrible, but overall it was good, pudding was good too one bit of advice would be if you like coffee, ask for a Americano or what ever you want but don’t drink the coffee they offer, it is terrible. All the staff we met were very friendly, courteous and very knowledgable about the hotel and local area For all the faults of the hotel, I loved my stay here, and will definitely be back at some time.

Spent 2 nights here recently, having bought a voucher on the internet. This is a lovely olde world castle hotel in a pretty setting and there is free parking in the grounds. Log fires were blazing when we arrived, which was very welcoming, as it was a bitterly cold and wet evening. We headed toward the reception desk, but a member of staff beckoned to us to sit at a nearby table. This was a bit off-putting as the table was right beside guests who were sitting in a common area, and they could hear every bit of our business. I think the hotel need to review this policy. Maybe it happened due to lack of staff, but it would been as easy for that member of staff to attend to us as the reception desk. We got a very cosy room overlooking the front gardens, and it was well supplied with everything we needed, including an in-room safe, and also a bottle each of fizzy and still water. We rambled down to Clifden village for dinner on our first evening and it was barely a 5 minute walk. We dined in the hotel on our second evening, and dinner was preceded by a talk on the castle and its history, whilst champagne was served to guests. Dinner was served in the lovely dining room on the first floor which overlooks the sweeping front gardens. There was a lot of confusion as to what we could and couldn’t have. Dinner was very good, well cooked and presented, but portions weren’t the best we have ever had. It’s not the cheapest for a meal but it was all part of the experience of staying in the castle. Sleep quality here was great, and there wasn’t a sound to be heard on either night. The shower in our bathroom did present a problem though – it was extremely difficult to regulate and as the shower screen was sealed to the rim of the bath, we literally had to climb into the bath to turn the shower on – not ideal if you don’t want to get drenched or scalded! Breakfast was very good with plenty of choice on offer, along with fresh pancakes. The star of the show for the duration of our stay was definitely Froda, the African grey parrot. She was absolutely charming. However, don’t expect her to talk to you if you approach her cage – she always waits until you walk away to start chatting. She is just delightful and enjoys mingling with guests before the champagne reception each evening. Clifden itself has the most fabulous scenery and whatever direction you choose to go, you will be spoiled for choice. We enjoyed our stay in the Abbeyglen. Collapse

From the second I arrived at this enchanting castle I felt so welcome.. we were treated to a four poster suite with its own fire place.. and massive bathroom.. it was such a great treat to be invited for a glass of bubbly and canapes in the early evening and while there we were so entertained by a story teller to tell us the history of the castle and surrounding area.. dinner was a delight also.. this castle hotel has everything one would need for a fantastic night or weekend away.. the staff and management were so friendly and kind to us.. a marvellous congratulations to everybody who runs the castle as it is truly wonderful Collapse
