THE DESIGN TEAM MERGED THE NATURAL, CLASSICAL DESIGN OF THE EXISTING BEDROOMS WITH NEWER, MORE CONTEMPORARY FEATURES.
Glenlo Abbey Hotel & Estate, in County Galway, has recently joined the Small Luxury Hotels of the World portfolio, a collection of over 520 independently spirited hotels. Dating back to the 18th Century, the Glenlo Abbey Hotel & Estate bestows 5-star luxury to its guests with an added gift of tranquillity given its serene location along the shores of Lough Corrib.
The design concept for the new bedrooms was influenced by the hotel’s stunning surrounds as well as the existing hotel design concept. Carefully designed furniture, traditional moulding details, soft, luxurious fabrics and subtle Damask patterns in wallpapers were used to bring the new design to life. All details were carefully considered so they could maintain the integrity of the hotel. Plush carpets, luxurious tiling, classical styled brassware, opulent occasional seating and up-to-date technology all merge to connect the new and old.
