The Pullman Restaurant:  A unique dining experience! Step back in time and dine aboard the Pullman Restaurant. Comprised of two original Pullman carriages, beautifully restored and set on the grounds of the hotel. Book a private booth or sit by the window with spectacular views overlooking Glenlo Abbey Estate and Lough Corrib. Converted into a wonderful Restaurant Car without losing any of its original character, this historic Pullman train carriage had been residing at Elsenham Station in Hertfordshire, England before joining the many and varied facilities already available at Glenlo Abbey Hotel Galway. The Pullman Restaurant is certainly a dining experience like no other.
