A very nice hotel in the outskirts of Galway. The room was clean and spacious, and an extra plus for the beds which were very comfortable. The restaurant offered a decent traditional breakfast buffé. The bar in the hotel offered plenty of different beer options for an after work pint.

We were on our way to Cork from Mayo and decided to stop in Claregalway Hotel for a late lunch. As it was after 3.00pm we decided to order something 'quick' from the menu. I ordered turkey and ham and my husband ordered the lamb. We waited and waited and waited. Eventually I asked the server if our meal would... More

Just returned today after a weekend break. Lovely hotel, pleasant, welcoming and staff that aim to please. Arrived on Friday to find a wedding reception taking place, same again on Saturday. However, apart from the bar being busy for an hour or two, they didn't impact on our enjoyment at all. Sunday was the Lord Mayor's Ball and the place... More

We attended a wedding dinner. Food was excellent together with service. Pre-meal drinks were in part of the upper bar, not particularly good as the number of guests meant they had to go down to the bar to drink and enjoy the snack. Didn't stay in the hotel as it was fully booked. Stayed at the Arches down the road... More

We attended my friends wedding in March 2015 and from start to finish it was exceptional. Our room was fabulous, the staff were wonderful and the bar menu for the day after the wedding I absolutely loved. One of the dishes is literally an Irish Breakfast in a Panini - with chips, best hangover dish of all time. Quick, personable... More

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

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
