Connemara Coast Hotel
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Furbo
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 15, 2014

I stated in this hotel during the week (Tuesday June 10th and Wednesday June 11) with my partner. The reason we booked the Connemara Coast Hotel is that we wanted to stay in a good location in Connemara, and it particular we were looking for a nice, affordable hotel, with a nice swimming pool, as although we had planned to be out and about for our two day visit, we also wanted to relax and unwind on our return. I have to say that I was certainly not disappointed and was thrilled with the facilities and the level of cleanliness of our room and the hotel in general. We felt that the hotel went of of their way to go above and beyond to ensure that we had a lovely stay.

First of all when booking we specified that we would like a sea view room. We knew that this may not be possible as we had booked a standard room, and felt that perhaps we were asking too much for the price we were paying, but to our lovely surprise, we were given a beautiful, clean sea-view room. The bed was comfortable, and we were blessed with a great shower as well.

When getting ready for our night out however, I was initially disappointed with the fact that the hair dryer was in the bathroom and one of those awkward appliances that need to be used standing up and in a steamy bathroom! However, when I requested a stand alone hair dryer along with an ice bucket for the wine we had brought with us, both were promptly dropped up to us.

As we were late arriving on our first night, we decided to go down to the bar, as we were told at check in, that there was music there that night. We had a lovely time, but were surprised that my partner and I (both in our 30's) appeared to be the youngest staying in the hotel by about 30 years, as the hotel does a special offer for over 55's. However, although this may have dampen the atmosphere for other younger people, we both felt like it added to the charm of the hotel, and in fact we ended up dancing in the bar with the other guests, who ended up out lasting us on the dance floor and staying up later than us!!

As I mentioned earlier the facilities were fantastic, but it was a shame that the receptionist on check in seemed to be in a bit of a rush (I can't think why as there was no one else checking in at the time) and never told us about the facilities, which was a shame as we nearly missed the games room, which had a pool table, soccer table and video games. There was free wi-fi also throughout the hotel. For outdoors activities there is also a playground for children, and a tennis court, free of charge and you can also walk directly down to the beach through a lovely pathway. The swimming pool, steam room, sauna, and Jacuzzi were simply bliss and stayed open until 9.45pm. The outdoor tub however, was definitely the highlight of our stay as it gave us breath taking views, of Connemara, on the very few sunny days we have in Ireland!

After enjoying ourselves in the outdoor tub, we got a lovely surprise to find that our bed was turned down and a chocolate was left on each of our pillows and a newsletter with the following days weather on it and poetry quotes. I felt this was a lovely touch and not what I would have expected in a 4 star hotel. It may us feel like we were really being treated! On arrival at the hotel we were also given an option to have a newspaper delivered for us for the following morning.

The food for dinner was good. However my chicken and black pudding salad for starters, was a bit disappointing. The rest of the meal made up for it though, and the waiting staff were friendly, attentive and professional.

The hotel itself is not a typical generic 4 star hotel, it is stylish, quirky and relaxed. My only real disappointment about my stay, would be the fact that we were unable to stay an extra night! I do plan to be back and I have already told my friends and family that they would be silly not to book in next week!!

Room Tip: Don't be afraid to ask for a sea-view room. Although we had a lovely room, rooms on the downstai...

There for one night when visiting for Irish college met by very friendly and helpful reception staff.
Had been upgraded to lovely room with views of stunning coastline. Ate in bar that evening & had excellent breakfast next morning. Would stay again.

The Connemara Coast Hotel is truly charming! The setting near the water is lovely although the property is a bit out of town. The hotel is tastefully decorated and it has a very welcoming feel. Our room was very spacious and nicely appointed. Our one complaint about the room was that the in-room safe was not secured to the closet shelf. The hotel has a very nice pub on-site with excellent food. The breakfast buffet was limited (hot items were ordered from the menu). Overall, the service was first class.

As part of our Royal Irish Manors Tour, we stayed at Connemara Coast Hotel for a terrific waterfront resort.
All the staff were extremely accommodating and friendly, and made our stay a treat.
We would highly recommend a stay here while visiting the Galway area

Stayed here for 3 nights mid April and what a wonderful hotel. Staff, location and food are second to none. However whilst our room was cosy, clean and comfortable it could do with some attention to detail to bring it in line with the very high standard of the communal areas of the hotel. Scenery unreal and the hotel is located in a very quiet area. Spotlessly clean and the leisure facilities and pool area are excellent. A laze in the hot tub overlooking the ocean is pure heaven. Hope to return soon.

Room Tip: Rooms on South Side are quieter but a good bit further away from reception/dining room/swimming pool...

This is a really lovely hotel with a beautiful location and vista. Room was very comfortable and food in the pub was delicious. The only drawback, to anyone who has trouble with stairs, is that there are no elevators. i would definitely stay here, again.

We came here after a visit to Dublin, so it was nice to have the quiet location on the water. If you want to be in Galway., it's better to be in town. It was a good location for a day trip to Connemara. The common areas were very nice. Room was good,a little inconvenient to have to take luggage up a big set of stairs. Breakfast could use a little more variety.
We really enjoyed our meals in the pub, good food!
