This was our second stay at Glenlo Abbey - we loved it last December as it's so festive and welcoming. The staff couldn't be more helpful, the beds are super comfy and the beautifully decorated trees and roaring fires, delicious cocktails make for a very Christmassy break. The only downsides this time we'd report were the door handle was a bit dodgy and the queue for breakfast was over 20 minutes on Sunday morning.
