Need more help, please. Thanks!

Many, many thanks to all the kind people who offered their great suggestions to me on my earlier posts. I'm making lots of progress on planning my trip. Need help on this: Looking for decent value/decent hotel/decent location in Galway. Skeffington Arms is my first choice, so far. But, perhaps there are other hotels or B & B's with family rooms that are less costly? I'm open for suggestions. I appreciate everyones time and input.

you might want to check out the suites in Days Hotel.

I understand they are two bed with living area.

It might be suitable.

Translation for Clauds!!!!!!!!


Indeed if you book the Skeffington Arms that would be a spectacular choice as this hotel is quite luxurious and enjoys a prime location in the town centre but you may experience some nise disruption as the hotels public house is frequented by many customers at night. Down the road from my abode there is a tastefully decorated hotel called the Clybaun hotel. Here you may enjoy such facilities as a swimming pool and gymnasium. This would be a wiser choice if you required a quality nights sleep as it is in a more secluded location though still easily accessable from the centre of town via a bus that runs every 15 min.

Hope this helps Clauds

Hey. I'm sorry for a couple of variations of bad words in there. I was rushed and didn't properly read it over. Then again, you kind of have to get used to the vernacular over there. I've heard a couple of things that made me blush. Just know that it's a joke and no harm is meant. It's like redknecks vs. New Yawkas. Cheers.

Hey, you lot, thanks for the translation, Dougalman, and thanks for your contribution, Boru!

I fully understood mort's post after reading through it a few times. I just think it is more polite to submit posts in old-fashioned long hand rather than in "texting mode" as on a mobile phone.

mort, I didn't mean any offence!
