We loved it. The whole experience was magical, from the beautifully decorated lounge we waited in (we were early) to the conductor, the tickets being punched, the yummy food that our 6yr old literally gasped at, to seeing Santa then snuggling up in the cinema...More

I was bummed about this one, especially given the cost. We've found Ireland to be the most friendly place we've ever visited and the service in most restaurants is really great. Except this one, which, unfortunately was the most expensive by quite a bit. The...More

Pros: Staff was outstanding, the atmosphere was fantastic, the dessert and bread were amazing (the pastry chef is killer). My dinner was good, not great, as was my appetizer. Totally fine, but it didn't knock my socks off. The setting did though....and if you're staying...More

This restaurant is on the grounds of Gleno Abbey Hotel. It is comprised of several pullman train cars that are from the Orient Express. Everything is original. This was really fun. The food was very good.

A great opportunity to experience what The Orient Express might be like at a minimum. Food absolutely delicious and service excellent. Staff ensure you have a great time and are very attentive without hovering.

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.
