We recently stayed at the Claregalway hotel for an Easter break as we have stayed there several times before. However the dinner service was not good, neither was the food when it arrived. Oisin, the manager, who was a total gentleman, overwhelmed us with his generosity, understanding and by being so nice about the situation. Second night was a total... More

We stayed in the Claregalway Hotel for our first anniversary. The food and the staff were fab. We enjoyed dinner on two of the nights and the breakfast was lovely too. We hope to stay there again soon. Eithne and Trevor.

Had a meal with a family group today. whilst the restaurant was buzzing, a very popular choice for Sunday lunch, we were a group of twelve and the service just didn't come up to the standard expected of this establishment. Some of us were still waiting for our stirfy while others were finishing their main course. dessert was slow too.... More

I was at a conference a week ago in the Claregalway Hotel and felt that it couldn't have gone better. There were over two hundred at it but it went so smoothly, there was no sense of our being a crowd. The sound system was in doubt at the very beginning but it actually worked very well throughout the day.... More

Very brief visit as arrived very late. Rate very good as were the staff. Bedroom was a bit tired but clean, took a very long time to get the hot water running. WiFi worked well and was free. Breakast options very good with the full Irish experience ready to set you up for the day.

We stayed here for one night, excellent accommodations, friendly staff, clean and spacious rooms. We enjoyed the buffet breakfast in the morning. It`s not super close to the town, but if you are driving, not an inconvenience at all. We`d recommend this stop to others!

A nice hotel a bit outside Galway on the road to the north. Clean, very nice room. Good location along the main road. A bit noisy then. Restaurant OK. Friendly staff. It's a good pick if you're in the region.
