Pros: The train cars are unusual and perhaps cool Seaweed bread was good Cons: *Significantly* overpriced for the portion size and quality Fish and scallops overcooked No side options Very, very light on vegetables (no salad) Wine selection needs complete overhaul Advice: Overhaul food concept....More

We were staying at the Glenlo Abbey Hotel and this restaurant was definitely one of the things about the property we were curious of. I was slightly worried that it would be a bit on the tacky side, when we were handed a ticket to...More

We were a party of four for dinner. Overall service was very patchy and food mediocre. Starters were mere bites and nothing memorable except their minuscule size. Main course echoed starters. My fish was over cooked. Wine was overpriced. Ambiance is interesting but that's where...More

Food and location exceptional. The meals for both my wife and I were well presented. Only criticism was the mark up on the wine which is extortionate from 34€ a bottle. Piped music was tasteful but only if you like Frank Sinatra, perhaps a varied...More

I written a review of this as part of my review of the the Glendo Abbey. I would avoid eating here. The food was poorly cooked and generally cold. Probably because of a substandard kitchen in a railway carriage.

The ambiance of the Pullman restaurant is fabulous and perhaps worth the price tag. However, the limited menu and the only average quality of the food did not match the setting. The presentation was lovely, but the food was generally uninspired and not worth the...More

The Pullman Restaurant on the grounds of Glenlo Abbey Hotel is one of Ireland's truly unique dining experiences. Comprising of two dining carriages from the Orient Express, beautifully restored and now set on the grounds of the 5 star Glenlo Abbey Hotel, offers panoramic views overlooking Lough Corrib. Located just 2 miles from Galway, on the West Coast of Ireland, this is a dining experience not to be missed on your trip to Galway. One of the carriages, the Leona, dates back to 1927 and was part of the original Orient Express and carried VIP's all over Europe and the UK during its lifespan. 1965 saw Leona's final journey when she was used as part of Winston Churchill's funeral cortege. After this event, Leona with other carriages played a staring role in the classic movie, "Murder on the Orient Express", which featured greats such as Albert Finney, Lauren Bacall and Sean Connery. Opened in May 1998, the Pullman Restaurant aboard the Orient Express enjoys fabulous views of Lough Corrib and ironically 300 metres away from the old track bed of the now lost Galway-Clifden railway line. Majestically rising from the still waters of Lough Corrib and dating back to the 18th Century, the 5 star Glenlo Abbey Hotel is where old world charm meets contemporary elegance. From the moment you drive through our magnificent cast iron gates the beauty of this enchanting lakeside estate overlooking Lough Corrib will captivate you.
