A nice visit during race week where there was a real buzz about the hotel and the staff and service were excellent in the restaurant and bar. Good parking facilities and then only a few minutes drive to Galway races.

This place is top class.I have been there numerous times and have never been let down.Food is good and reasonably priced.There is always a good atmosphere there and the staff are helpful and friendly.This is a great place to go for a drink before heading up to a rugby match in the Sports ground a few hundred metres away.

Visited here for 2 days this week. Really nice place. Top class food all cooked fresh to order, including breakfast, lovely large modern rooms and close to bus stops etc. Well worth a visit if in Galway.

On the outside it looks like a English Pub but on the inside it is a open plan restaurant. It lacked the style we were looking for. We had tried to book in as guests into the Hotel part but fortunately as it seems were unable. However the restaurant is well run and the food was great despite it being... More

Ok always liked the atmosphere here but thought the food would be a little better, had the chicken dish which came with very little mash and the veg was very scarce , don't think it's value for money for this, the rest of my family also thought the same, service was quite slow as I saw 2 tables having to...

Lovely spot for a quick lunch. Always good food. I had the Chicken with wild mushroom sauce, very nice. Sauce I'm not so sure on, but everything else good. Veg could do with a little butter or something esp for Cauliflower. Handy location if you don't want to go into the city!

My friends and I were booked into the Huntman for 2 nights but when we got there we discovered that we were only booked for 1 night. I have to say that the manager was a lovely lady and even though we didn't agree on who got it wrong, she found us another room only in a hotel nearby and... More

At there on a Sunday evening, good service and fairly good food. The web site gives the impression of a comfortable traditional pub. To me pit seems to be aimed at the trendier types more than families and older couples (plus 40s). Not a complaint if that is their target audience, just alter the vision on the web.
