We stayed here for a weekend and found it to be a beautiful hotel. Food and staff were excellent . Hotel location is very handy for touring as your only a short drive from galway city or to tour the more rural areas of Connemara

Spent two nights here and was very impressed. Full of life and very busy with groups but maintained a great peaceful relaxed and chilled atmosphere. Loved the spa and really felt refreshed. Lovely breakfast too.

Just a short note to thank all of the staff in the Ardilaun Hotel for such a memorable visit . It was short, but I would definately visit the hotel again. The location is excellent with a lovely walk down to Galway City and just beside beautiful Salthill. From the time myself and my companion arrived we were made feel... More

The Hotel was really nice and charming as was 99% of the staff. Then there was the older Filipino (I believe) woman serving as host for the Breakfast seating who greeted me with such great displeasure and responded to my simple request of a seat by the window with such a poor attitude I nearly didn't stay to eat breakfast...

The Ardilaun has a lot going for it ...beautiful grounds and the initial impression in the lobby is very positive. But the room we got as a triple was quite rundown and positioned over the spot where the kitchen staff go for their smoke breaks. I don't mind overhearing conversations in Gaelic but we had to leave the window open... More

This is the first time I have ever went to the trouble of writing a review but feel I have to as I am so annoyed. Booked a prepaid triple room on the internet.On arrival I got the feeling that this type of booking is not welcome by staff as after several minutes of paper crunching we were advised that... More

Well, this was meant to be a 5* hotel that was booked as part of our castle tour Ireland. Not that we wanted 5* hotels at all but it came with the package. This was probably the biggest disappointment in the whole trip. We had been booked in a "garden room", checkin was a little slow and they seemed a... More

Stayed overnight after my cousin's wedding reception. Firstly the reception food was excellent - no mean feat for 250 guests. All staff friendly & professional. The hotel is pleasant & set in attractive grounds. Our room was clean & comfortable and we slept well once we got to bed after 2am! Breakfast was very good with sufficient choice. We were... More
