Just back from a 4 night stay in Galway..........
My wife and I stayed at the Park House Hotel, and I have to say that this one of the friendliest hotels anywhere. The politeness of the staff, seems to rub off each and every member, even down to the room maids.
Food at the hotel is well above the norm, with Sunday lunch a particular favoutite with the locals.
We managed to visit many bars,to listen to the trad music and sample the black stuff. More often than not, a knowing nod to the bar staff was all that was required for the second round!
The locals sure like a drink, but never was there any hint of trouble,the pub opposite the Patk House .
Au Pucan, was especially friendly.
Had a lunch of cod and chips at McDonaghs.....the batter was special, light,cunchy and not at all greasy. The cod was very very fresh, but although they have awards for their chips, we thought them to be only average. Nice buzzy atmosphere at the communal tables though.
Dinner at The Malt House was disappointing and expensive. For instance monfish with a measly portion of veg was 27 euro, and the cheeseboard, was 4 tiny pieces of cheese for 12.50 euro.
The air con was'nt working, causing the room to be very warm indeed.
Yes a few gripes , but sure glad we visited.
