My husband and I spent 2 nights at the Westwood House Hotel during our CIE Tour of Ireland. Of all the hotels we visited, this one was our favorite!
We were initially disappointed to hear that we'd be staying a few miles from the city center, but after staying at this hotel, we decided that all of the positives far outweighed that negative (the slightly inconvenient location).
-The service was outstanding. The staff went above and beyond to make sure that we were taken care of-including checking in during our meals, assisting with information on transportation, offering some fun little extras to our group, etc. They were incredibly welcoming and friendly!
-Our room was very nice: comfortable bed, nice furnishings, etc.
-We enjoyed 2 breakfasts and 2 dinners at the restaurant in the hotel. We loved the food! Everything we ordered was delicious.
-We had a few drinks at the bar one evening, which was also very nice. It's quite large and the layout allows for comfortable seating all throughout.
Though this hotel is not within a reasonable walking distance of the city center, it's easy enough to get there. We took the bus into the city one night (conveniently located right across the street from the bus stop) for a very reasonable price. The bus only runs until 11PM so we took a taxi on the return trip. It costs approx 10 Euro to take a taxi-and the front desk staff are more than happy to help arrange that for you.
We would highly recommend this hotel to travelers in the Galway area!
