On arriving at the hotel a helpful member of reception booked me into my room and directed me to the lift. Rooms are spotless and well presented but I would recommend a sea view option which through fault of my own I did not do on booking. I was then escorted to the wedding reception where I was presented with a complimentary cocktail. Bar staff were very friendly and the meal which consisted of a starter of pork belly followed by celeriac soup, my choice of lamb for mains and an assortment of desserts was perfectly acceptable and tasted delicious. As guests made their way to the residents bar post Dj we felt at ease, shane was a great barman and obliged at 3am to make my friend and i bloody mary cocktail for which we were very grateful. I would certainly recommend the Galway bay for a relaxed break overlooking Galway bay and a 5min walk to the heart of salthill. Although it is a taxi/10min walk from the city centre we did not have an issue with this as the hotel does not give the impression of otherwise..
