I attended a christening here at the weekend. The set up of the room we had the meal in was fab. It was like a mini wedding, it looked fab. The food was 5/5. We stayed the night and the room was lovely, clean and spacious. We stayed in the wheelchair accessible room as I'm a wheelchair user and I... More

Before coming under new ownership & management, I had not visited this hotel before. I had received some negative feedback about it, and it didn’t really suit to stay there, preferring to stay in Galway altogether. Like everything else when you get so many different accounts of what the hotel was like, I decided that the only way to know... More

I stayed in this hotel just one Thursday night alone and paid 139 Euro midweek price. It does not deserve 4 Star status. A nearby 4* hotel quoted me 65 Euro for the same night and I selected this hotel to be with friends. My large luxurious room on the 4th floor had a fabulous view and the furniture, carpets,... More

We visited Loughrea in a party of 20 for Galway races. The whole thing was a mixture of business, pleasure and family travel. You can imagine the chaos, meetings to be held, hair, make up and hats to be dealt with, petulant teenagers and demanding toddlers. Our rooms were at the front of the hotel and once you get over...

Check-in was quick and efficient. Big surprise when we got to the two interconnecting family rooms, they were spacious, clean and modern. The bathroom was lovely with a gorgeous shower and bath. There was a balcony with a roof that was lovely at night time. We went up to the rooftop bar with a gorgeous view. Breakfast was nice. Bar... More

Spent two days at this hotel on a leisure. I was surprised at the quality and size of their double room, much better than some of the high prices options in Dublin. The hotel also has good facilities, you must check out the roof top bar with a view of the lake. When booking also ensure you request the lake... More

We were visiting Loughrea after a 45 year absence. We stayed at the Loughrea Hotel and Spa. Our accommodations were superb! The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The food is excellent both in the Abbey Restaurant and in the bar and brasserie. If you decide to stay, hopefully you will have Ciara as your server in the bar and... More

Had a lovely night away with friends with the girls night out package in Loughrea Hotel and Spa. A little confusion initially at the reception about the number of us staying and the date of the afternoon tea. Left us feeling unsure about schedule at times. Had a lovely meal in the Lir. Then went for a cocktail class in... More
