Now that I've returned from my trip, I realize that Galway Bay Hotel was fairly decent, especially considering the great price (Orbitz). However, a few things irked me.
For instance, there was no option to iron in the room, just an "ironing room" on another floor. The hairdryer cut off every few minutes, and the shower water was lukewarm at best. The staff at the front desk wasn't very knowledgeable when asked questions about the area. And finally, we received our wake-up call 50 minutes late - and there was no apology or even acknowledgement. We were on a time schedule, so this put us in a mad rush. All in all, it wasn't as relaxing as it could have been - the devil's in the details. The room was a nice size, though, and the Irish breakfast was lovely.
