My husband and I had our wedding reception in the Ardilaun Hotel in December 2014. From the day we first phoned to enquire about their venue, the service was impeccable. The hotel's wedding planner Maureen is so professional and pleasent to deal with and she made everything so easy for us. We had 5 months to organise our wedding and... More

Myself and my boyfriend stayed here on Monday and Tuesday night. Overall the hotel was very clean and the location was ideal- a 5 minute drive from Salthill beach and 10 minutes to Eyre Square. Good points: Every member of staff that we met during our stay- receptionists, cleaners, breakfast staff- were polite, friendly and helpful. I don't think we... More

Stayed there recently for two nights. The most striking thing about our stay was the consistent courtesy and professionalism of the staff in reception, bar and restaurant. The hotel was spotless and very warm (during a spell of very cold weather). Our room was large and well furnished. Afternoon tea was lovely and restaurant food was cooked to perfection. This...

I recently stayed at this hotel for my birthday. The staff made my weekend even better and made us feel special. The room was lovely. Great bar and atmosphere. The spa area was lovely and relaxing! Thanks for the great weekend.

Booked an overnight stay in the hotel. Receptionist on duty was friendly but that's where the niceties ended. The bar staff weren't helpful no eye contact and when I requested a certain drink I was shot down in such an abrupt manner that "we don't have that drink". We actually left the hotel and went to another one in town... More

We were at the Ardilaun to welcome in the New Year and what a treat the lobby was alive with waiters offering champagne, the function room was hosting a Gala Ball which was alive and fun, another private party was on in one of the lounges. Happily we were headed for the Restaurant, which for New Years Eve turns into... More

If you're looking for a superbly appointed hotel with friendly staff, a sincerely warm welcome, great restaurant & lively bar, you can't go past the Ardilaun. From the friendly reception staff ( Hi Lisa & Bernie ! ) to the hilariously funny ( but totally professional ) restaurant staff, not to mention the ever helpful Marie and Maureen (events management)....

Difficult stay as family member unwell in hospital. Staff very understanding. Food in Bistro very good. Christmas week so lots of party's going on but didn't impact on guests. Only problem really was getting served a drink as the staff kept busy.

I stayed here for the first time in 2014 and on two occasions! The first was during the Galway International Arts festival and the second was to celebrate my birthday where I availed of a Select Hotels Ireland deal of two nights for the price of one. I enjoyed the first stay so much that I thought yes I would... More
