The Gateway is a lovely boutique style hotel in the centre of Swinford town in Co. Mayo. We stayed only one night but we are already determined to return. Overall it's a combination of things that made the stay very nice. First of all its a newly renovated hotel and the rooms are first class, 6ft bed and flat screen tv and a really plush bathroom. We got the impression from the moment we checked in that nothing would be too much trouble. The breakfast is a very relaxed affair, buffet style with really good choices and again I am sure if we'd had any special requests they would have been provided with pleasure. The hotel has a really nice bar attached to it and there was a great atmosphere in it on the Friday night. We had lunch there on the Saturday after we'd checked out by chance (the group we were meeting had it arranged there), again the food was hearty and tasty and served with great efficiency and hospitality.
We would really recommend this hotel if you have reason to be in or around Swinford (a great place to base yourself if you are touring in the area). You will not be dissappointed!
Oh, we had a lovely chinese on the Friday night in the Welcome Inn on Market Street (not at all impressive from the outside but fabulous, tasty chinese fayre at really reasonable prices - give it a go!!!
