Best place I stayed in Ireland!

This is a great hotel. Staff were very freindly and helpful. The building, bedroom, and bathroom were clean and tidy. Great views from my bedroom/bathroom windows; looked out to a small waterfall. The area is also nice to walk through and meet the freindly locals. Great tourist location.

Wonderful Experience

Pros: The staff, the food, the room, the grounds, the location.
Location: There are nice shops in town We were only there 1 night and ate dinner at the castle, so didn't spend much time in town - unfortunately.
Our trip to Ireland was wonderful and staying at Abbeyglen Castle Hotel was a wonderful experience in itself. The staff are great, so are the rooms. The host went out of his way to make our stay memorable. The complimentary champagne reception was very nice and we enjoyed hearing about the history of Abbeyglen. We were there for a special event, and our stay will be a wonderful memory for all of us.
