My husband and I were on a tour of Ireland and had the good fortune to stay at the Galway Bay Hotel. Upon arriving the Asst. Mgr. greeted us and had a table of tea and pastry set out for us. We had a fantastic conversation with this young man and how he ended up at the hotel and has stayed for 12 years....as we heard much of the staff does. The brief stay afforded me some quiet time on the enclosed veranda, as the weather was stormy; (which added to the ambiance) with a glass of wine and my kindle. everything about this hotel offered an aire of elegance; which was nice after traveling on a bus. Last but not least The Staff all walked around with giant smiles; hello' s; and can I help you! Galway is on our bucket list to go back to. thank you. Donna & Dan
