This is an amazing hotel set back from the road with a spa right next to the hotel. Ideal location as a base for exploring to local sites. I have stayed here on a number of occasions and the staff are very attentive to your needs. We bring our dog with us and the hotel accommodate for your K9 friend... More

Visited the Ardilaun House Hotel over the weekend as there was a tremendous promise of great weather in Galway. However in spite of the clouds the Ardilaun compensated well with the friendly staff, tasty food and excellent accommodation. I had requested Room 201 as it held special memories for me. The staff were excellent and the bar staff were friendly... More

This is a quality hotel in Galway, Ireland. Beautiful, spacious room, lovely grounds, responsive/friendly staff. The building itself is large and spread out - it might be a long walk to your room. Cons: 1) it's not walking distance to the town center, so you'll need to hire a cab, 2) the kitchen is very slow for dinner. I would... More

Myself and my partner were booked into the Ardilaun Hotel on a business trip. We arrived to a raucous and rowdy wedding at reception, and checked in. The entire hotel had a stale odour, and was incredibly dated and dishevelled in its appearance. We traipsed through a maze of corridors to find a very cramped and dated room, with a... More

I stayed here 2nd week of June 2015. I was here earlier in the year and had some issues, see review elsewhere. The hotel MD John Ryan promised to attend to the points I raised. Boy, he has done really well - take a bow. Booked the reservation over the phone and was greeted by Bernie at check in. Some... More

We found the hotel very unique and quaint. Our room was so nice and comfortable, overlooking the front of the hotel. It was very quiet though. The location is convenient to the downtown area but more in a neighborhood setting. The staff was very friendly. We only had breakfast here and it was very good with a nice selection. We... More

Stayed here last week and it was excellent. Staff very helpful and friendly. Hotel was busy and lots going on. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone. Great location near the city but on its own grounds.

Our tour group was booked into the Ardilaun and it was a wonderful stay. The lobby is gorgeous and comfortable. The rooms were clean and well decorated. We were a bit concerned when we first checked in because our room overlooked the back, employee space outside the kitchen but it was quiet and peaceful. Meals were delicious and the wait... More

My wife and I spent a couple nights here and I have to say, big chain hotels have nothing on this place. Warm, inviting, clean, and awesome food! This place has it all! Please do explore! There is much more than meets the eye here! We stayed on the 3rd floor. Very well kept rooms. Parking was plentiful and free!
