Sunday service at the Connemara Coast

Thu, Jun 15, 2017

Is Sunday lunch a thing of the past? It has certainly changed. It is far more informal than in the past and it doesn’t even need to be strictly at lunchtime. These days, a Sunday lunch at home is just as likely to be a one-pot dish prepared in advance, a stir-fry, or pulled pork rather than a proper roast. In the summer it can be a barbecue or an al fresco picnic, perhaps with ice-cream and fruit, in the colder months, slow-roast lamb with seasonal vegetables and a hot pudding are the order of the day.

Afternoon tea at Glenlo Abbey

Thu, Jun 08, 2017

Tucked away just two miles from Galway city is the five-star Glenlo Abbey Hotel, in vast acres of rich, lush, scenery on the banks of Lough Corrib. The abbey is the ancestral home to one of Galway’s famous tribes, the Ffrench family. The graceful, gothic, two-storey house was built in 1740, with the abbey itself being constructed in the 1790s as a private church for the family. In the 1980s, the house and estate were bought, restored, and converted, transforming it into a unique hotel.

Glenlo Abbey offers something different from other hotels in Galway and, despite major renovation, it has not lost any of its old world charm. Most importantly it boasts friendly staff who show genuine interest in their guests. It is perfect for people who want to 'get away from it all’ without actually travelling so far into the wild west. Arriving through the doors of the reception area is like stepping back through time. Each bedroom at Glenlo Abbey Hotel has been beautifully refurbished and many of the rooms have river and lake views.
