Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Superb 5 star hotel. It has the beautiful elegance of a manner house but upgraded to the highest modern standards. The staff are incredible, so friendly and attentive. The food is out of this world. It was one of the best fine dining experiences in Ireland. I have visited a few 5 star hotels this week on my Staycation, and Glenlo is one of the top. I would highly recommend staying here.
