Stayed here recently for 1 night to meet up with some friends. Its what I would all a "traditional Irish" hotel with good service and good food. The hotel was really busy as there was a wedding on which added to the atmosphere. Fabulous grounds and a great location. Would definetly stay here again.

We went here on a 3 day break. 6 of us. Staff could not be more helpful. From recp. to dining room and bar everybody really friendly. All food was delicious. Went to the show "Trad on the Prom" which was recommended by the reception staff. Wonderful evening. Really happy to recommend this great hotel.

This was our fourth stay at the Ardilaun, it is lovely to find a hotel that has consistant standards. All of the staff are so friendly and accomodating, especially Sheila on the front desk and Terry in the bar, but really all of the staff are lovely. As usual we had our dogs with us, the pet friendly rooms are... More

After a day out we returned to find that our room had not been cleaned - so disorganised . Dirty coffee cups plates from breakfast still not cleared away... More

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.
