Stayed two nights at the Pillo hotel whilst on a trip along the Wild Atlantic Way. The hotel is located on a buy junction close to the large out of town shopping area in Galway. Initially it was difficult to identify the entrance but once that was sorted there was no problem other than the busy traffic in the area... More

We stayed our last two nights in Ireland at the Pillo and we were glad that we did. The Pillo has free on site parking which in the larger Irish cities is tough to find. Check in went smoothly, we found the front desk personnel to be very professional and accommodating. Our room was a good size and had a... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Pillo (appropriately named) as we needed a rest after 15 days on the road. The check in was quick and friendly and the rooms are excellent. The restaurant has a limited menu but the food is very good. Recommended

The location was away from center of town and parking was easy and covered. There was a store right next door to get ATM and snacks. We ate dinner and breakfast there and both was amazing and service was great. Room was GREAT! Wished we could have stayed longer!

Stayed here for one night and found that the Hotel did match it's web site description. Check in was very easy although the lifts were not working from the ground floor, but did operate from the car parking in the basement. The area around the basement lifts was a little drab as was some of the thread bare carpet in... More

A large portion of the Pillo Hotel is constructed over an industrial unit which housed (a now empty) furniture shop and a busy filling station/convenience store. Also the rooms overlook roads, in our case the Headford Road. This resulted in a stay with a lot of noise at from the Headford Road and the Filling station, which disturbed sleep. There... More

I cannot recommend this hotel enough! We stayed here again, and decided to have dinner in the restaurant. There was a little hi-cup with our starter and we ended up waiting for it for a long time. However the waitress offered a dessert on the house as a way of saying sorry... best thing ever :D Although the food portions... More

Brief visit to Galway- stayed 2 nights. Very easy to find by road- on the main routes but within easy walking distance of town centre. Easy to explore Connemara and most other areas. Parking under hotel free. Good wifi in room- room well appointed and comfortable. We dined in both nights- food very nice and reasonably priced in special deal.... More

Galway so a small city so you have to fault the location, it's not really handy to pop back and change or get something in the room like 90% of Galway hotels, so it gets 4/5 for me. Everything else was good, decent bar but does close around 3/3:30 so don't expect and all night session. I'd my stag there... More

I stayed in the hotel in april 2015, for an overnight visit to Galway. The staff are extremely friendly and professional, the rooms were spacious and the beds so comfortable, I would definitely reccomend this hotel and stay here again.
