whilst a little slow at reception training new staff, they were still able to arrange a prepared room ahead of normal booking-in time, even after a very busy previous night. Good service for meals/drinks, and decent quality with plenty of courteous staff.

Stayed at the Connacht on a Friday night in winter. Must be one of the busiest hotels in Ireland. Executive room good size. All the staff throughout the hotel, even late at night were very friendly and never hassled. It is rare to find staff who enjoy their work. There was a large number of Stags and Hens in the... More

Stayed here for a hen last night. From the moment we arrived the staff were amazing. They couldn't have been more helpful. From reception to the bar. The rooms are grand. The brekkie was fab. Really nice. Highly recommend it

We seemed to go to Galway on a really busy weekend - this was literally the only room we could find so we grabbed it! Glad we did as the staff were very professional and helpful despite being extremely busy. The only reason it got 4 was it was a little further out of the city centre than we had... More

This hotel is an absolute gem. Stayed here with my partner for our second time and it couldn't have been better. Told them we were staying with them for our anniversary and they had upgraded our room and left us a personal touch in the room. They go above and beyond for their guests. Met a wonderful woman named Louise... More

I struggled to decide whether to give 3 or 4 stars here since there were highs and lows to our stay but I guess that the good probably outweighed the bad in the end. We visited last September, for a family get together to celebrate our father's 70th birthday, with people coming from Dublin, Tyrone and England to spend a... More

I have stayed in the Connacht hotel many times over the past few years. The location is perfect for my needs when I need to stay in Galway. Their rates are very reasonable, the rooms are always very clean and comfortable. The food is always very nice and the staff are very friendly and helpful.
