We stayed at the Hotel from Thursdays 25th to Saturday the 27th of July. We had a great time, our 3 children absolutely loved it and really enjoyed the kids club and the pool! The hotel staff were brilliant and went above and beyond to make sure we had an enjoyable stay! Looking forward to staying with ye again soon xxx
Our stay was brilliant and the staff were first class. The facilities especially for our kids were up there with the best places we have stayed before. I would not hesitate to recommend the glenroyal to any other family and should we stay in maynooth in the future we will definitely be staying at the glenroyal.
Great staff who work really hard to make you feel at home and so welcome, almost like family.
