A nice hotel in a good location (for me anyway) with friendly and helpful staff. Although I didn't use the pool or fitness centre this time around, I have previously, and those are good too. Good breakfast buffet and restaurant. Unusually for a hotel bar, Bar Solo does an excellent Guinness!

A little out of the centre of Galqay but easily accessible by bus. Nice facilities. Lovely pool and great restaurant. Good atmosphere and nice room. Staff were very friendly. A nice place to stay if you want to avoid some of the crowds of the city centre. Well priced.

This is an exceptionally well ran hotel. Check in was easy. Room spotless. Food experience excellent. Kids club excellent. Staff excellent. Bar entertainment excellent. Pool excellent (if a bit dated)Value for money excellent. Myslef and wife plus my two boys had a great time. Kids club was such a good thing for the lads. Ross and Donna did a great job and so genuine. Emer served us at dinner time and she and all of her colleague's are a Credit to the hotel staff. Having the kids club there gives the parents time to have a pint and some down time in peace :-). Great spot and just a pleasure to stay there. Proper Irish welcome and well oiled genuine attitude to good service . Thanks Connaught hotel.... we will be back as soon as possible. :-)

We had a one night stay at this hotel in Galway. We were greeted by friendly staff and check in and check out easy. The breakfast was very good and staff helpful. the night time entertainment in the bar was a plus after returning from a evening in Galway town. If yo plan on a night in town though you need to take a cab

Dear Peggy C, It is lovely to read that you enjoyed your one night stay with us and that many of the aspects of your stay were to your full satisfaction and thank you for taking the time to share your experience. We are located a little outside the city center, but our location offers us the opportunity to give our Guests the benefits of complimentary parking and extensive Leisure Club and Children's entertainment facilities, that are not always available in more centrally located Hotels. There is the option of using a Taxi to go Town, as for our Guests convenience we have a Taxi rank right outside the door of the Hotel but there is also the option of taking the bus, which runs until 7 am to 23.30 pm at night as we are located on the main bus route into town. Thank you for staying with us and I hope that should you visit Galway again, you will consider staying with us. Kindest regards, Louise Pettit Guest Relations Manager
