We stopped for lunch at the Abbey Hotel in Roscommon. It is a carvery lunch where you are served cafeteria style and then take your tray to a table in a lounge room off of the bar. The entree included two vegetables and both mashed and toasted potatoes. We both had the salmon and it was all excellent. Our cousin had the half portion of pork and it was excellent too. Excellency from Sligo was visiting the hotel for a lunch meeting and everyone was a twitter! That was just a bonus to the wonderful lunch.
Celebrated a birthday in the restaurant with a number of family members and everyone had the same opinion that the food and service could not have been better! From the first communication with the hotel it was absolutely excellent providing email confirmation and a copy of a set menu. I was very impressed by their professionalism. The set menu was excellent value at €35 for a four course meal including a sirloin steak. All the men were very impressed with the generous dishes of mixed vegetables, potatoes, chips, onions and mushrooms and as much complementary breads as we could eat. The service from emer in particular was excellent and we couldn't have celebrated a meal more heartily. The wine choice was very extensive and very well priced. I would whole heartedly recommend the abbey restaurant for a gathering of any size with food options to suit vegan, vegetarian and coeliac as the staff are very knowledgeable and helpful." Sunny D
Best Food in the West of Ireland "The Food is of a quality you would expect to find in five star hotel"
"As a business man I travel a lot with my job but any time I am in the Midlands I always like to stay at the Abbey. The highlight of my stay is always the food. It really is the best cuisine you will find in the West of Ireland and that’s a broad statement coming from some one like me who likes a good steak and a glass of wine and knows it will be cooked exactly to my liking. The Food is of a quality you would expect to find in five star hotel, great variety, local produce and most of all great value when you are a business traveller like me. The new restaurant has really transformed the place so when I have new business client I want to impress I make sure to book my table in the new booth seating area with views of the old abbey ruins. Derek and Angela are always so professional but it’s the friendly and welcoming staff in general and the comfort of having that home from home feeling that makes me return each time. John Kildare
Wonderful stay – Lavender from Chesterfield UK
"We stayed here for three nights in September 2017 and thoroughly enjoyed our time. The hotel is next to a ruined Abbey and the Hotel itself is an old very interesting building. The room and ensuite were both spacious and very comfortable and very clean. The staff on the desk were all very helpful and polite and friendly. The breakfast was fantastic. There was always a good choice and the food delicious. Some mornings it was a choice of cold items like cereals, fruit, yoghurts, breads, fruit juice etc etc, then a hot buffet of bacon, sausage, black and white pudding, potato, tomato, eggs then toast. All perfectly cooked. Another morning it was the cold buffet then we ordered from a menu and I had a mushroom omelette which was amazing. I could not fault this hotel at all and will definitely return when we are next in Roscommon. I'm only sorry we didn't have time to visit the leisure centre and have a swim. We went to see the pool and it looked so inviting. Next time!"
Fantastic customer Service
My mother and I stopped off for a light lunch,I had not been in the hotel for some time and when I got married almost 20 years ago this is where we had our reception. Whilst paying for lunch I mentioned this in conversation to a charming and friendly gentleman who was on the till. He did not charge for our tea or coffee and very kindly offered them on the house.
What a lovely gesture and thank you Adrian
The Abbey is a so tastefully decorated and the staff are so friendly. Thomas K
Amazing place to stay loved it ...The food was delicious every day, from the breakfast to the dinner,(now I know why they got so many awards).
I booked this as a surprise for my Daughter so she could stay in a Castle. We were amazed from the time we drove up the drive way into the car park until the time we left. We stayed in a family room,our room and bathroom was huge,the bed was super king size, the mattress was so comfortable.even had a bottle opener on the tiled wall in the bathroom.The room was spotless just like everywhere in the Hotel.The food was delicious every day, from the breakfast to the dinner,(now I know why they got so many awards)...We all had a ball even though it was raining heavy most of our stay it didn't bother us because we had the pool and beautiful surroundings, like the abbey ruins that are on the grounds,making a beautiful view from the dinning room/restaurant.Could not fault anything at all, I would highly recommend this as a get away from it all break. Like I said AMAZING......Caroline Co. Meath

Went to the Abbey with a few friends not for the first time and once again the meal was excellent, my steak cooked medium to perfection, didn’t want it to end , everyone else was also very happy and afterwards a few drinks finished off the evening beautifully"
Californa USA Guest - "The Best Buffet"
"I stayed here in late June 2016 for two nights. It is a historic property and it is beautifully maintained. My room was large, clean, and comfortable. The breakfast buffet was excellent. Many delicious choices. There was no extra charge for parking which was nice. The cost was very fair considering all that was included, and how nice it all was. They had a fitness center with a pool and hot tub, which I used. The staff were very friendly and helpful too. I have recommended this hotel to others and would definitely stay there again. It is close by car to Strokestown and Tulsk".
Lovely Break Away – Derek & Joan O’Reilly, Clane Kildare “Had a lovely stay with my husband last weekend, really enjoyed the break away without the kids!! staff were lovely, from check in to the bar and restaurant, enjoyed a lovely meal and got a coveted window seat!!, had a quick walk into the main street and look around, lovely gardens too, was watching a wedding get their photoes done, ideal spot, thanks to all in the Abbey Hotel
Overall my stay was excellent. The only thing was no bottle of water in room was a long way to bar to get one! Beautiful tranquil hotel perfect for a getaway as a couple or with friends.
Lovely stay at the Abbey. Good food, comfortable and spacious room and attentive, professional and helpful staff.
excellent service yet again, always a pleasure staying here.
