We spent 3 nights at the Connacht Hotel while taking in the tourist sites of Galway. Upon arrival the staff was very friendly and answered all of our questions with a smile. On the first night we left the kids in the room with room service and went to the hotel "bistro" restaurant beside the lounge. The experience there can... More

By the time we booked a place in Galway, almost all the hotels were completely booked up. The Connacht hotel was somewhat of a last resort. We stayed in a double room where the bed was in one room and the living room/kitchen area was in another room. The rooms were clean , although kind of old looking, and the... More

I stayed in a triple room with my 2 sisters for 1 night recently. We were checked in swiftly and given very good directions to the city-we were going to a funeral. We had 3 comfortable beds in our room and good facilities like tea/coffee making, iron, hairdryer etc. We ate in the bar on arrival, food was lovely. When... More

Reception staff were excellent, organising complimentary soft drinks as our room was not quite ready (we were a little early). Excellent spacious room and best TV of our 15 day trip. We stayed 2 nights and ate in on the first one. Food was fine and good value, but the service was a little stretched as the hotel was extremely... More

The most beautiful swimming pool I've seen in a hotel. The leisure facilities are second to none. The Family room was spacious and very clean. The ensuite had a lovely bath and was clean and fresh. We enjoyed the food and the staff were helpful, organised and polite. We will be returning.

Stayed one night, the reception staff were very friendly and efficient, the room was clean though a little dark, the window was very difficult to open. We had booked a twin room but were given a double, contacted reception and had the room changed within a few minutes. Overall the staff were very helpful and courteous. The location is ideal...
