Well it got your attention... Lisloughrey Lodge the lesser known of Cong's classy hotels has been bought up buy SA based Carnation Hotels who recently acquired the better know Ashford Castle.

With Two hotels now in the town perhaps they should invest the cost of a couple nights stay into a shuttle bus to get their guests out from Galway and back?

Excellent idea (re the shuttle). Can't understand why more places don't do that e.g. Fota Island Hotel in Cork, it's so near, but yet so far, apart from a train station which is a muddy 40 minute walk away !!
