Positive Reviews

Warm and refreshing welcome is ensured

Upon your arrival, you will be welcomed with a refreshing tea and scones that you will surely put a smile on your face. There is also a parrot named Froda who will give you a warm greeting. Many guests loved this memorable welcome.

High-quality and friendly service

Abbeyglen Castle Hotel's staff, especially the manager, go above and beyond to exceed every guest's expectations. You can ask them for a specific request and they will accommodate it with a happy face. Not only are they friendly, they also do their job promptly and very well.

Foods served are to die for!

Aside from being complimentary, guests loved the breakfast for its high quality foods. Most of the guests' reviews mentioned the sumptuous smoked salmon and freshly squeezed orange juice. During lunch and dinner, try some authentic Irish dishes at the on-site restaurant. You do not have to go out to enjoy a lovely meal.

Negative Reviews

Rooms need general cleaning

Peeling wallpapers, cobwebs hanging on furniture and in corners, scratches and writings on the wall - these are just some of the negative reviews about some rooms in the hotel. You may call for a housekeeper when issues like these bother you very much.

Wi-Fi is not high-speed

Despite its advertisement of free Wi-Fi in public areas, guests reported that the Internet access is restricted only to a small area near the registration desk. The free Internet is non-existent in the rooms.

Some minor bathroom complaints

Some of the showers have mould and mildew, while the wallpapers in the kitchen and bathrooms are peeling off. These just minor issues are best ignored though. However, if this still bothers you, you can always ask for a room transfer or demand for a housekeeping staff to clean your area.
