The hotel was great, super comfortable, breakfast was amazing and all the staff very nice and helpful. My husband is in a wheelchair and the hotel was very accommodating, the room big and they were able to give us a room with a full tub instead of a shower which was perfect. Parking was fantastic and the hotel super central... More

Stayed for 1 night. Its a large commercial hotel with a few good twists. The rooms and beds were fine, room temperature a bit hot which we modified by opening a window. The breakfast buffet was fine but a bit uninspiring. BUT...this please has a superb gym and an even better pool. If you like a morning swim/ gym this... More

Enjoyed two nights at this property as has an outstanding staff and excellent restaurant and bar area. My room was clean and comfortable. Some carpet in the stairwells could be replaced but that is a minor thing. I was actually there during a time where there was a rugby tournament and the bar, with large screen TV's hosted many locals... More

We stayed three nights at the Connacht in Galway with a large group (136 people) during a high school trip with our son. The rooms were much larger than I expected based on prior experience in Europe. That was a nice surprise. They were clean, but the lighting was so poor, it never felt bright. They provide liquid hand soap... More

Really liked this hotel - rooms are nice and really quiet even though the hotel was very busy for patricks weekend. The leisure centre was nice too. We ate in the bar while watching the rugby and it was very nice. The bar is very comfortable and the staff are lovely. They knew we were away for our 10 year... More

Stayed here for one night for work, checked in late and checked out early the next day. The girl at the front desk was lovely and very friendly. The room was a great size and very clean the only downside was the heat it was so warm it was uncomfortable. I had to sleep with the window open as wide... More

Breakfast not part of the deal - but we had it both mornings- an extra €98 to the bill. attention to detail also lacking here - plates not restocked for buffet breakfast, no teaspoons, limited staff to servfe tea/coffee. Had light lunch... More

I liked the hotel and location. Easy to get around by local bus. Only downfall i felt after working in the hotel industry myself was the hospitality. Check in was a headache as well as eating breakfast. I know it can get overwhelming but being nice is part of the job. I would return to stay if i ever go... More

Stayed here a few times around the new year period 2014, the hotel is fine staff are friendly and helpful. The prices are decent and even better when there's deals on. The leisure facilities are perfect and the swimming pool is lovely. The stairway in to the bedrooms wasn't up to par with the rest of the hotel and wasn't... More
