We stayed here for two nights as part of a tour of Ireland. The hotel was beautiful and the room met all of our needs. The only downside for us, was that WIFI was down for a majority of the time and we had to go down three floors to use the WIFI in the lobby. Also, the hotel is... More

Booked a stay at this hotel for two nights. On check-in at the hotel me and my husband were treated so badly by the young man on reception. I have no idea how he managed to get a job in customer service because his attitude was appalling. He was so unhelpful and just plain rude to us. Fist impressions are... More

We have stayed in this hotel a couple of times. And once again it didn't let us down. Staff very pleasant from reception to dining room. We enjoyed two lovely meals in the restaurant and our room was very comfortable. It's a nice walk down to Salthill and not too far from the city. Kenn and catherine

Spent a great night in the Ardilaun Hotel. The leisure centre was great, the breakfast was fantastic, the staff were all friendly and helpful and it had a great, beautiful location. It was also brilliant value for Galway and for this time of year.

We were part of a group of 45 touring Ireland. This was our first stop of many over a 2-week period. While others in the group got what they called "luxurious" rooms, ours was not. The beds were tired and lumpy, the carpet worn, and totally in need of some updating. Others had many electrical outlets; we did not. We... More

Beautiful hotel, with a fantastic staff. Very charming and upscale. The rooms were big and the beds comfortable. There's a nice little trail in the back to take a short walk and unwind. The restaurant was great for both dinner and breakfast. Great stay.

My wife & I stayed here for one night lately. Loved everything about this hotel. Beautiful setting. The girls at the reception were so welcoming. We had a very nice comfortable room overlooking the car park at the front but it wasn't noisy. I used the leisure centre & thought it was brilliant. Excellent buffet breakfast, plenty to choose from.... More

When we arrived on our tour at the Ardilaun Hotel a wedding was taking place in the lobby but the hotel was organized to hand us our keys and we were on our way to our room. Rooms were nice and the beds were comfortable. The hotel is situated in a residential area about a 20 minute walk to Galway.... More

We visited this on a busy weekend at the beginning of July . There was a barbecue, a wedding plus several coaches of tourists all going on at the same time. Despite this, the staff worked extremely well and coped with what must have been over 300 guests at one time. All the staff were pleasant and helpful, we had... More
