Enjoyed our stay here very much and what a pretty village. Nice breakfast and very friendly service. Excellent nights sleep after a long walk aroound the area. Surprisingly good restaurants in the area as well, but more about that later.

While touring around Galway and Clare we stayed for two nights in Hyland's. It was a very pleasant experience. It is a three star unpretentious property with high standards. The room was a good size and the bed very comfortable. The bathroom was quite large with shower stall rather than a bath/shower. We had a difficulty with the shower on... More

Compelled to write a review of this hotel, we rarely resort to doing this due to time restrictions and busy schedules, but in this instance, we feel it would be a complete shame not to. Hylands Burren Hotel is magnificent. From the moment we entered the hotel to check for vacancies right through to the checking out, the staff were... More

Stopped on way to next stop in Clifden. Rooms were large with a twin and a double. Place was well kept and clean. Food was fair but staff very nice and helpful. Had own car park also. Breakfast was traditional Irish breakfast that came with room.

We chose to stay in Ballyvaughn on a TA recommendation and we are so glad we did. It was perfect for exploring the Burren on our way from Connemara to the Cliffs of Moher and a great example of an Irish small town after Dublin. The hotel rooms are good for the price- quaint and quirky is how I would... More

I have stayed at the Hylands Ballyvaughan in the past, and this recent visit with my tour group was just as rewarding and satisfying. Many called the hotel and rooms "quaint," in a good way. We especially liked all of the various nooks and crannies and small gathering areas. Only glitch was that they were short staffed at the time.... More

Stayed here over St. Patrick's weekend. The hotel is charming, and the staff are brilliant. It is very good value to stay here, and the food is good. The only complaint about the food is that the portions are very large, now I know that this suits a lot of people. The breakfast is a little dried up, so I... More

We stopped for the obligatory "sunset on Galway Bay", and loved the wee town and this hotel. Our room had an enormous skylight, with a vast view of the Burren, and was extremely clean, comfortable and quiet. The sunroom down the hall was a lovely warm and bright touch, and needed in such a windy cool area. Our dinner was... More
