You are spoilt for choice when deciding where to have dinner at the Glenlo Abbey. The Pullman Restaurant is a converted dining carriage from a train; the River Room Restaurant has large vaulted ceilings and views of Lough Corrib from every table. To enjoy a few pints, head to the Kentfield Cocktail Lounge, which overlooks the final holes of the golf course. Heading downstairs, you can relax in the warm and characterful atmosphere of the Oak Cellar Bar - perfect for a nice pint or some tasty bar food.
The Glenlo Abbey Hotel has its own golf course, but other golf courses located within driving distance include Lahinch and Dromoland, located to the south, in County Clare. While you're there, take the time to explore the Burren and the Cliffs of Moher. Drive north on the N59 for Clifden, and visit Kylemore Abbey in Connemara National Park. From Galway City, you can charter a boat to the Aran Islands - home to the ancient Dun Aengus.
