Just back from a 1 night stay. We had been let down by the B&B we had booked & The Connacht saved us. Lovely entrance to the hotel, busy but inviting. Staff were lovely & helpful. It's a very big hotel with long corridors but we'll sign posted. The room was grand, clean & a nice size. The only downside... More

Outside of center Galway City but a good choice for a family of 4, good facilities, great pool and fun nightly bar scene with live entertainment. Though hotel can use updating, the rooms were well-kept and comfortable. The pool and gym are welcome after a day of sightseeing. Best of all was the nightly live entertainment in the bar, making...

Food presentation is of a high standard but lacking taste. Those paper tumblers for the sauce and peas etc are an easy out for any chef. Service was nice and pleasant but had to reorder drinks 3 z times. Overall. It's not bad,but could be a lot better.

Great place for family holiday, plenty of activities for kids, pool is great! Everything you need in the hotel, only fault was charge for 25 per hour for room extension. Never been charged in any other hotel before, which is usually complimentary for an extra hour or so!

Stayed for 2 nights family of four. Not our first time to stay so we knew what to expect. Big busy hotel, always a great buzz about the place. Great facilities, swimming pool, gym. Breakfast plentiful with lots of choice. Be prepared to queue on weekend mornings to get a table and to get food. Tea cold by the time... More

We spent 3 nights midweek in the Connacht Hotel. There were good and bad points during our time there but overall it was quite average. Staff are very friendly and will go out of their way to accomodate you. The lounge area is comfortable and there was live music every night. Lots of parking available and in a good location... More

Stayed here a couple of days ago. Unfortunately, upon arrival I found that the room was very dusty and needed a really good clean. The staff were very apologetic and someone quickly sorted out the main issues. Houskeeping really could be vastly improved. Loads of small issues. Later that day, I noticed two food skewers that there had been chocolate... More

Self catering is excellent easier to cater for toddler early in the morning. The staff extremely friendly, eat twice in the hotel and waiting staff... More
