Had a nice stay at the Connacht in October. It's conveniently located just outside Galway. The room was very comfortable, breakfast was great every morning, as was the food in the restaurant. Staff were very friendly.

Myself, my husband and my 1 year old daughter stayed for 2 nights. As a leisure club manager back at home I notice things in other clubs and this place was spotless. The water temp,air temp and clarity of the pool was perfect.The changing area was spotless.The jacuzzi, sauna, steamroom was on point. The cleaning lady the girl with red hair was great and so nice to my daughter. The food was superb in the bar and the staff are very patient and friendly when it comes to people with children. Over all a great hotel.

Close to €200 for 1 night, no breakfast included. Basic enough room, nothing too fancy. Wasnt great value for money in my opinion. Not walking distance from centre However, very clean and warm, friendly staff. Wouldn't visit again just based on what you get for your money.

Dear Caoimhe, Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. I am sorry to read that you were disappointed with the value your receive and I would have valued speaking with you regarding your feedback prior to your departure. You made your booking on line and you choice the option without breakfast for the price above. We do have the location of the hotel on our Website so that our Guests, if city center location is important to them, hey can make an informed decision. It is about 25 minute walk to the city center from the Hotel. However we are on the main bus route with buses running every 10 minutes Monday to Friday and every 20 Minutes on Saturday and Sunday. There is also a Taxi rank outside the front door of the hotel for our Guests convenience. I am happy that you found our Team friendly and our Hotel clean and warm. Thank you for staying with us and I hope that you may in the future re-consider your decision not to stay with us. Kindest regards, Louise Pettit Guest Relations Manager
