Great hotel to stay to use as a base for travelling around.Staff all friendly, breakfast great.we had an evening meal when we arrived,lovely.only one grizzled, a map or better signposting for the rooms, ours was beyond the gym, you got to an empty room and had to guess which door to go to next.

This is in a very convenient location for visitors to Galway. It's not hard to find and the city center is a very short drive. The facilities were good. Rooms were large. There is a decent restaurant and bar and plenty of free parking. We had a party of five and we were sent to an apartment-like setup with two... More

we found The Connacht hotel to be a modern hotel , clean and spacious. We found our stay both happy but a little disappointing at the same time. Service in the bar for food left us extremely disappointing due to an exceedingly long wait after placing our order (1 hr 15 min) . We brought it to staff attention and... More

A good place for a one night stop while driving through Galway. Only a few minutes from the city center by car or taxi. Price was right and I was not expecting much other than a decent room. On the negative, no WIFI in wing A. WIFI in the lobby was ok, but not great. The hotel happened to be... More

We had a few complaints here, squeaky floors in the halls,(I am a light sleeper). Unbelievably slow service in the bar for food, bad beer, people running around halls at 3am. And a few other things, but it is a lovely hotel, nice bar and nice rooms, and when checking out we were asked if everything was ok so I... More
