I stayed in this hotel recently and I had such a great and relaxing stay. There is a warm atmosphere in the hotel and all the guest were buzzing and happy. The leisure facilities were great and the staff were so helpful. Everything just seemed to run so smoothly. And the food and drinks were amazing. I will definitely be coming back soon. Thanks! :)

Stayed at The Connacht last weekend on a short family break, room was perfect, the live music in the bar was fantastic on Saturday night and the cocktails were even better. Staff, food and pool were top standard and the free wifi internet access had great coverage throughout the hotel. I also loved the fact that the rooms were not close to the bar, so a great night sleep was had by all. I give this Hotel 5 stars without any hesitation.

I stayed here thursday to saturday and had a really nice time.I did not realise this is Connaughts biggest hotel.I had food at lunch and tea time and both were equally good. I would reccommend the Sea food Chowder, it was excellent . Early evening cocktails were really good with a very good choice.The bedrooms were clean and comfortable and the staff at check in, to the bar staff were friendly and helpful.All i can say is I will come back here again and hopefully soon !

Stayed in the Connacht for race week with the kids this year. Hotel is close to the city but far enough out to get a quiet nights sleep during race week. Good hotel, great staff and good leisure centre with pool for the kids. Got a great family room (suite), very quiet out the back, and fab childminders provided by hotel. Staff very friendly and good bar food. Will be back!

Pros: staff at reception were very helpful, bar is open until late. Cons: hotel is very busy and is close to a 30 minute walk into the centre of Galway. The most unfortunate part of our stay was joining other guests in picking over the bread at breakfast because much of it was moldy.
