My husband and I have just returned from a 3night/4day stay in Salthill at Cashelmara Lodge. Like some of the other reviewers the owner was not there when we arrived but her son Shane knew which room we were to have and organised our breakfast menu for the following day.
We went to see which were the best places to eat and Christina quickly came out of her room when she heard us coming downstairs and introduced herself, she recommended several places to eat and in fact the first one we went to was so good we ate there every night.
Our breakfasts were first class, nothing was too much trouble and we were offered "seconds".
Our room wasn't the biggest but it was spotless, a good sized bathroom and a very comfortable bed and we were at the front overlooking Galway Bay.
We sat out on the balcony with a bottle of wine and our plastic glasses and Mr Fahey came out with two wine glasses for us.
Christina organised our pickup for our trip to The Burren and Cliffs of Moher, gave us plenty of tips where to go and what to see and what/where to avoid. When we sat in the loung she came and joined us with a glass of wine and we had a good laugh.
All in all a very pleasant place to stay and the whole family made us feel very welcome.
