Rising majestically from the still waters of Lough Corrib and dating back to the 18th Century, the 5-star Glenlo Abbey Hotel & Estate, situated just two miles from Galway City Centre, is where old-world charm meets contemporary elegance, and from the moment you drive through those cast-iron gates, the beauty of this enchanting estate will captivate you.

Throughout the month of February, the Glenlo Abbey Hotel & Estate is celebrating LOVE, and inviting guests to experience a night or two of good old-fashioned romance, offering a choice of two attractive packages, the “Ultimate Love Story”  and “Champagne Amour.”

With “The Ultimate Love Story” experience, you'll get to really turn the Romance-O-Meter up a notch. Setting the scene for romance from the get-go, arrive in style to a chilled bottle of champagne eagerly waiting to be popped in the comfort of your bedroom haven. After you have settled in, how about a stroll hand in hand or bike ride about the 138-acre estate.

Fancy the indoors? How about watching a romantic movie in the back row of the fabulously intimate Abbey Theatre?

On an evening of choice, experience a candlelit four-course dinner for two aboard the iconic Pullman Restaurant (formed from two original carriages from The Orient Express).  After dinner, why not cuddle-up by the fire in one of the many sumptuous lounges, where the hotel's gracious team will be available to ensure that your experience is everything that you wished for and more.

You can then return to the privacy of your bedroom where a romantic candlelight turndown with chocolates, fluffy bathrobes and slippers awaits.

Oh, and it is not over yet. This deluxe experience also includes a decadent couples' treatment at the cosy Glo Spa & Wellness.
