My fiance and I are just back from a fantastic weekend in the Galway Bay Hotel. From start to finish we couldn't fault this place. Upon arrival we were met by Vincent, a most friendly young man on reception with a smile made for welcoming guests! He was so efficient and helpful, as were all the staff we encountered here. Not one member of staff passed us without a smile or a hello, and we were made feel like VIPs for the entirety of our stay. Trevor in the bar also deserves a mention, the banter was great and he answered all our queries on local information while we enjoyed a beer. I must say that before our visit we had noticed complaints on this site regarding the price of the hotel, however we really felt that we got value for our money in every aspect of our stay. When they say four star, that's exactly what we got. The room itself had a fabulous sea view, and if we left the window open we could even hear the sea lapping on the shore opposite the hotel. The bed was horribly comfortable; By that I mean that it was so comfortable that we found it difficult to get out of in the morning! The shower too, was so nice and powerful. The food in both the bar and the restaurant were top class and again, the waiting staff were impeccable. We really can't recommend this place highly enough, and really look forward to returning soon. Huge thanks to staff and management at the Galway Bay Hotel for a thoroughly enjoyable stay (Keeva and Sid, Drogheda).
