Since 1996 weve visited ABBEYGLEN at least once a year, by the way something the management has very little interest in. However we decided this year to spend Christmas in Abbeyglen . Well what a dissapointment ! Nothing special abouy the 3 days at all. In fact the menu in the restaurant was smaller that normal. We had what was the worst bottle of wine we ever tasted. A 28 euro reisling @ 8.5%. Dreadful. The chiefs special lunch on Christmas day was very poor. A small salad of beef stroganoff for mains and chocolate brownie for desert. Nothing else. Some of the planned events never took place. Very little effort made to do anything different. On Christmas night the small bar was so crowded it was impossible to enjoy the music. Why they did not open the ajoining larger bar is beyond me. On St.Stephens night everything shut down at 1pm. Thank heavens for Ritchies bar in Cleggan, it was only getting going then. No exaggeration here, it was a truly a forgettable experience. Collapse

The Abbeyglen Castle is definitely not a standard corporate hotel. It is a very personal hotel with friendly and attentive staff in an excellent location with lovely views. The food in the evening was really good with a nice selection of wines. I also used the spa for a manicure, pedicure and massage and can honestly say that the treatments and service there were superb. There are some areas that could do with some improvement. The breakfast buffet wasn't the best, the food was a little tepid and some of it was overcooked such as the boiled eggs. The room we were in although clean and spacious with a nice lounge area was looking dated and a bit tired, definitely could be improved with an update. The bed however was so comfortable and I slept really well while I was there. One big downside was that for some reason there was a strong smell of cigarette smoke in our bathroom and bedroom fairly frequently, we think that a guest in an adjoining room or room above must have been smoking, we did mention it at the reception desk but although they acknowledged our concern, they didn't seem too concerned about it and never followed up with us about whether the problem was resolved. While we overall enjoyed our stay there and the musical sessions in the traditional hotel bar have an excellent atmosphere not sure I would rush back as it was quite pricey for the standard of room provided. However they were lovely people, offering a very personal service and somewhat quirky hotel which is a good thing in a world full of so many standard, impersonal places. Collapse
Amazing spa experience

A huge recommendation for an amazing spa experience at the AbbeyGlen. Michelle made my birthday with a really relaxing pedicure. She was just lovely. Cosy, relaxed, luxurious surroundings removed from the bustle of the hotel. You have to go!

What a wonderfully, delightful stay. My wife (Jenn and me (Arthur)) stayed four nights. We feared it might be a bit too long in a small town like Clifton in an area like the Connemara, where we assumed didn't have a lot to offer, come to discover it wasn't long enough. We drove from Dublin, via a ferry, and a couple other unexpected side stops, and arrived late in the afternoon, misty, cold, ice was starting to form. As we walk into the archway, we were greeted by a blazing fire in the greeting room. At check in we were told of a supper special the Abbeyglen was having, I believe it was 20 Euros for a 3 course meal, complementary Champagne toast and hourdevrs . While the young porter took our bags to our room we contemplated whether to go into town or stay for supper. Thank goodness we stayed for supper, we ate there every night but one. Each night was an occasion, an event and we were made to feel like we were a major part of it. From the very beginning Paul was amazing, there was Pre-Supper Champagne toast/greet in the lounge area, where Paul explained hiking routes, things to do in the area, and general funny stories and how the Abbeyglen came to be. He engaged the guest with his delightful Irish sense of humor, and treated us with a bottle of Champagne (our Honeymoon). He and Brian made sure each sitting we were given a USA Flag AND a Irish Flag (because of my suspicions that I have an Irish heritage) in a vase on our table (each guest was asked where they were from and received the corresponding flag of their country). Dinner was phenomenal, so many cheese's to choose from, and deserts afterwards, all included. During dinner there was a pianist, and Paul and/or Brian walking the floor greeting, talking, taking pictures or our evening, initiating tables to engage (which we were more than happy to do). Then after dinner the pianist relocated downstairs in the lounge for all to enjoy and surprisingly many patrons did stay and sang and talked and we met the most amazing, interesting people. Most were locals, lived from a couple miles drive, to a couple hours drive from Clifden just to relax at the Abbeyglen, just staying for the weekend in a very classy, relaxing fun filled old world charmed Castle. There will be no doubt the next time we're in Ireland we will stay no where else. Thanks for every thing, Arthur and Jenn Mooney Collapse
