This was the first stop on a European vacation for my husband and me and our two adult children. We arrived at Shannon Airport about 7 am and drove to Galway via the Cliffs of Moher and arrived about 1 pm. Despite being very early, we were able to check into our rooms straight away. The rooms were very large and well appointed. The beds were very comfortable as was the bedding. We napped and then had a light supper at the Oak Bar. The wait staff there was very efficient and very entertaining. The breakfast the next morning was filled with delicious, fresh choices. It was reasonably priced, though ours was included in the room price. We chose to stay out of the city center because we travelled to Clifden and Castlebar. If you want the city center, this is not for you. But is you want a lovely, pastoral setting in the beautiful county of Galway, definitely come here. The staff are very helpful and extremely friendly. I will definitely return.
