Stayed for two nights. Very friendly staff. The full Irish breakfast was very good and filling. The hotel and room were very clean. The room and bathroom were quiet and spacious. Easy walk to the town center. Would stay here again.

I have stayed at the Glen Gat on my last few trips into Dundalk, and I simply won't go anywhere else! The rooms are fantastic, the staff beyond compare, and the breakfast??!! what you want, the way you want it. Folks, this is the BEST place to stay in the Northeast of the island. PERIOD!!

I was retracing the route of the Tain Bo Cuailgne (the epic "Irish Iliad" of the Bronze Age Celts) so this was ideal for me; Tim the proprietor is a local expert and enthusiast on The Tain.

I stayed here for one night and man dealing with us wasn't very pleasant or welcoming, then the room was not in good repair, alot of stains, the view also very bad, the breakfast was fine and the front and public areas where nice and looked clean, also good enough location to walk into town.
