OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

With the sheer amount of activities and land in the property, it is easy to stay in situ but if you want to venture out, Galway city is close by car where you'll find traditional Irish pubs playing live folk music, cafes and restaurants. If you like walking by the coast, go to Connemara.

By plane: flights from Birmingham and Edinburgh to Shannon take 1 hour 15 minutes; and London to Shannon takes 1 hour 30 minutes. A taxi will take over an hour to the hotel. Free on-site parking. Book flights to Shannon.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

The 18th-century building façade is immediately impressive. Expect silky patterned walls, grand fireplaces with gilt framed mirrors above, highly polished parquet flooring, sparkling chandeliers, heavy-weighted luxurious curtains and accents of gold in the original wing paired with modern furnishings, muted colours and clean lines in the modern part.

THE FACILITIES

There are quite a few activities to keep the active and curious amused, from falconry and fishing to cycling and golf, all with experts on hand to guide you. For something less active, book a river cruise or watch a film at the Abbey Movie Theatre.
