My adult daughter & I stayed here in August 2014 for 2 nights, as usual it was up to standard. Although very busy with lots of families everything ran smoothly. We really love it there. Bar food & service very good & Leisure Centre is very relaxing

We spent 3 nights at the Connacht Hotel. The hotel staff is professional and friendly,the rooms are large and clean. You can easily go to the city center using public bus. It is also a good choice if you are planning a tour to Aran Islanda.

In August 2014 we spent a family holiday in the Connacht. Our adult daughter is a wheelchair user and we had asked the hotel in advance to adapt one of their en suite shower rooms to a "wet room", i.e., a floor level wheel-in arrangement. In addition, we requested that a shower chair (with castors and removable centre piece for... More

I did NOT actually stay at the Connacht Hotel, but wanted to share a story about the helpfulness of their staff. Yesterday morning I booked a single night's stay with them for yesterday evening. However, on my way to the hotel my car broke down, and I was unable to make it. I rang them at 9pm the same night... More

This is a lovely hotel with a good bar and good leisure facilities. However we ate twice in the bar and food was of very poor standard. Have had superior food in other 3 star hotels. Also we were put in a specialised room which was wheelchair accessible. This was ridiculous as there was no bath in bathroom only a... More

We stayed here because it's regarded as child-friendly. It does have a kids club for bigger kids. There's a fine big bar in the hotel, with lovely seating. Food is served in the dinning room only. We had lovely meal, not too dear either. This is an old hotel, but has obviously been done up, I like it. The staff... More

Myself and my husband stayed in the Connacht Hotel last week, it was our first trip to Galway and we were really looking forward to our stay. We checked in at 3.30, and my first impression was that the receptionist was not very friendly, there was no small talk and we were given no information about the hotel or the... More
