We stayed here for 2 nights in July 2014 and had a fantastic time, From check in until checking out we loved every minute of our stay. Staff are lovely and so friendly, and there are plenty of staff around. We had dinner in the bar one evening and couldn't fault it..it was lovely. Breakfast was also very good, great... More

This is a large hotel, with a special appeal to families (kids stay free and there are many kids activities.) But despite the size and the multitudes of people, the staff did everything they could to accommodate our needs. They helped me make travel reservations, they even replaced the beds. The rooms are typical hotel decor, but the pool and... More

When we arrived our room wasn't ready, had to wait an hour (2 hours after check-in time of 3.30pm) when we complained about the delay the manager was so helpful and went out of her way to remedy the situation. She gave us dinner vouchers for our kids and a voucher for a bottle of wine, which we appreciated. When... More

The Connaught is a warm friendly hotel with easy access to Galway City centre. We had a triple room and it was excellent value for money, very clean and tidy. We arrived on a Friday evening and it was packed with other people checking-in, which is a good sign that the hotels’ standards are great. There are 2 restaurants in... More

This was a perfect location for a stag. Very friendly staff in a hotel with close proximity to Galway pubs. Lovely bar/restaurant on the premises for a recovery beer/food as well as it being late opening for a nightcap after all the pubs in the city close.

The Connaught is excellent value for money and a great place to stay in Galway. Most notably, the leisure center is excellent and we availed of it often during our last stay. We stayed using a livingsocial voucher, which included dinner, which was lovely. Will definitely be returning.

Stag group booked in for weekend. Not far out of town - 15-20 min walk of 5 min taxi. Its a big hotel. Staff were friendly. Helped organise tables for dinner in hotel bar the first night no problem. Hotel bar stays open long enough after town so the group can catch up over a drink after the night out,... More

Unlike some hotels this one is very welcoming and accommodating for hen and stag parties and makes Galway a very easy location to organise one in, although you do need to use taxis as it's a short drive from the city centre. The staff were very helpful and friendly and often greeted me as I walked about. The rooms were... More

We have stayed at the Connacht before so we knew what to expect: large hotel, busy, lots of children running around and queues for breakfast (get there early to avoid the wait). But it's the middle of the summer and it's a family friendly hotel so that's exactly what you should expect. The hotel is very convenient as you can... More

We stayed for 2 nights at the hotel, the reception staff were very welcoming and our room was very clean. The leisure centre was lovely as was the staff there. Our problem was when we ordered meal in the elevated seating area of the bar. My son ordered a cheese burger with potatoes and vegetables( he has type one diabetes... More
