This restaurant is a must! The food was amazing and it was a special treat to eat in an original carriage from the Orient Express. We had our own compartment and it was lovely to watch the sun set from here. A real experience.

Staying at the wonderful Glenlo Abbey Hotel, we opted to dine on one of our nights at the Pullman Restaurant. I'm sure everyone knows at this stage that the restaurant is operated out of old railway carriages from the Orient Express. The luxury and ambiance...More

As stated in a portion of my review of the Hotel, the food & service were wonderful, the policy to allow a 3 year old to be brought in to dine from 9-11 pm at the adjacent table, was not enjoyed. Pricey, but truly excellent...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.
