The award winning Glenlo Abbey Hotel Estate is a 5 star hotel & wedding reception venue a stone’s throw from Galway city centre.  I love shooting Glenlo Abbey weddings.  The grounds & beautiful rooms are ideal for your big day.  Here are some images showing off the grounds & internal victorian inspired décor at the Glenlo Abbey Hotel.
