Stayed here after a week camping and nearly died of delight. The beds were super soft, the rooms modern and large. It was a great experience and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Have stayed there several times whilst visiting my sister in the Gaeltacht and have enjoyed it every single time.

We stayed here on the Monday night for the 1st day of the Galway Races and it was the perfect spot! Hotel was very busy when we checked in around 2.30 but they were very helpful and advised us that we were within a 10 min walk but not in heels! So they called a taxi for us with no... More

My partner brought me to the Clayton for a weekend break. He booked the executive suite and it was great. Bed was very comfy. The bathroom had a lovely big bath and huge shower like a wet room. The food was nice. The location was easy for us as we didn't have to drive into the city to get there.... More

We were attending a wedding in the hotel so decided to make a weekend out of it. We arrived as that day's wedding party arrived. It was a little odd walking into someones wedding, as we found out the next day, the hotel lobby area is where the pre-wedding drinks and nibbles are served. But in saying that it did... More

We arrived late after a 4hr drive but were greeted warmly and offered a meal even though it was 21.45pm, we greedily accepted and were treated to a delicious 4 courses, we weren't rushed at all and the waitress was pleasant and chatted to us even though I'm sure she must have been wishing we'd hurry up and get out.....

We had a lovely break at the Clayton in Galway. Food was nice and service was good.the kids club was also an added bonus. It's in a good location as you are a few mins drive to Eyre Sq or to continue on day trips to Clare or Limerick which are just over an hour away.
