Lovely stay a few weeks back with the gang. Service top class, food was of a good standard. Close to the city without the madness of being in the centre. Handy parking outside too Looking forward to returning again in the future

Such a great hotel, can't rate it high enough. The staff were so helpful, our room was lovely and the location was great! Great value too. Would definitely stay there on our next trip to Galway. Galway is such a stunning city and our stay in the Connacht hotel definitely added to the overall enjoyment of our trip :)

Stayed here a couple weeks ago when visiting friends in galway. Hotel is very large and the rooms were of a very good standard. The fitness centre is unreal although didn't actually get a chance to use it but still had a look about!! Food is surprisingly good had a lovely meal and it was well priced! The hotel itself... More

I organised a group of 27 cyclists and support crew to stay here during a Malin to Mizen charity cycle. The staff were excellent. Safe storage provided for bikes and Van. Did a great deal on rooms and dinner. Rooms were of top class. The hotel organised rooms for us to get massage and served up excellent food. Well done

We have two toddlers and this hotel is most suitable for families. The food was great our only gripe was the logistics of where we ate in bar/restaurant, every time we sat down to eat we were moved "as this area is not serving food at present". Its a nuisance to move after settling two small kids! Other than we... More

We enjoyed our stay, though cleaning of the rooms was not top notch (e.g. dust on tables, mildew on grouting in bathroom), and some carpets were dirty and some paint was peeling away. The hotel needs more investment to bring all areas up to modern standards. There was plenty of parking, and free wifi in the rooms, though you had... More

Check-in was quick and efficient. The room was large with a double and single bed, plenty of power points and was clean and tidy. there were only lamps and no overhead lighting for those who like to read before going to sleep.

This is a very large hotel complex on the outskirts of Galway. The room was very nice , modern and everything you would need. Lots of coach tours stay here so very busy and bar restaurant area is vast and confusing. However the bar and waiting staff were very efficient. The bar staff work exceptionally hard and long hours but... More
