The Blazers Bar offers an intimate location for leisure or business. Although the menu can sometimes be quite,well,exotic for an Irish restaurant, there's always something great to be had! Sometimes,waiting times can be quite excessive, yet food always makes up for it. Free WiFi always a bonus here.

This lovely hotel is located in a green garden oasis a couple of miles from downtown Galway. So it is not convenient to the old town sights/sites. Bus is needed. Its location is quiet--except for loud employees in back areas--who are heard because of lack of air-conditioning. Meals were too fancy and lacked basics--like adequate warmth. Lamb was barely warm.... More

Love staying here with my boyfriend to unwind. The food in the restaurant is gorgeous and is equally nice in the bar. Pool area is nice. Short stroll to Salthill. It's also nice to walk to the city centre. Rooms are nice, a bit dated but that's to be expected given the age of the hotel. Staff are really friendly... More

We were a family of 4 and had a perfect 7 nights stay. The staff is very helpfull and the rooms were good and spotless. The leisure centre really made the trip as we did not have Beach weather.

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.
