“The train may not have left the station but, nevertheless, we embarked on an exquisite taste journey that wasn’t just romantic, but one of the best dining experiences i have had in a very long time”, Lucinda O’Sullivan, 2016
Now serving Afternoon Tea in the opulent surroundings of the Pullman Restaurant at Glenlo Abbey Hotel every Saturday. A unique dining experience, offering panoramic views over Glenlo Abbey Estate and Lough Corrib in the distance.
Set in two, gorgeously-restored carriages that once travelled to destinations as exotic as Monte Carlo and St. Petersburg - and even featured in Sidney Lumet’s 1974 movie, ‘Murder on the Orient Express’, starring Albert Finney and Ingrid Bergman - these Galway girls form Ireland’s most unusual hotel dining rooms.
Background ‘clickity-clack’ and hooting noises lend an authenticity to the experience and the romance is sustained by discreetly piped music of the 1940s and 50s.
