I stay with family when I'm in Galway but visit this hotel at least 2-3 times for food and drink in their comfortable lobby. I was just there this past March 2014 and experienced 3 great visits! First of all, I love the walk to the hotel from Galway city. Taylor's Hill is absolutely beautiful and the hotel has a... More

We had afternoon tea in the Ardilaun for the first time yesterday. It was a very good offering, and this will certainly not be the last time that we will visit this hotel for their afternoon tea. The sandwiches (finger, of course) were varied in content - all were good: my favourite was the cheese and ham; my wife's favourite... More

Breakfast was great, fresh and plentiful. Great location for both Salthill and Eyresquare - We will definitely... More

We recently stayed at the Ardilaun Hotel for my brother-in-law's wedding (12April). This was the second wedding we've attended there and I have to say, they know what they're doing! The food was fantastic and the evening went off without a hitch (no pun intended). Our room was lovely and spacious. Very tastefully decorated. We added a child to our... More

Just home after another amazing break at this hotel. It would be impossible in the space allotted to me to praise the delightful staff in the Ardilaun. Again we have experienced the first class service we have become accustomed to. The Ardilaun is our second home. We were sad to hear that Barbara had retired (lovely lady) and that Tom... More

Before our current visit, we had already stayed in this hotel on several occasions and will stay there again in the future. The bedrooms and the food are good. The staff are friendly and helpful. We have recommended the hotel to several friends. Usually there are several money saving offers on the hotel web site

I recently stayed in the hotel and had a very nice stay there. We dined in the restaurant and the standard of food and value for money could not be faulted. The room was spacious and spotless and the breakfast the next morning was delicious with a wide choice and replenished regularly. All in all, a very pleasant experience.

Beautiful grounds, quiet location, convenient to city & Salthill. We stayed in the Ardilaun for a family reunion, the staff were excellent, service friendly & efficient and food was superb. Highly recommended for a break or family occasion.
