We have stayed in this hotel recently,it was our third visit there,This is a great hotel,rooms are very clean and comfortable. the staff were exceptional, especially Karl, they could not do enough for us. The leasure centre is great. Plenty of parking outside. The only fault we find with this hotel is the food. On the first night I ordered salmon,the portion was so small, it was not even a childs portion.pricey enough for fifteen euros,On the second night the food was much better. They have a real problem with the breakfasts,the plates are sometimes cold,the food appears to be cooked early and left on hot trays. The hash browns and the mushrooms were stuck to the pan.The scrambled eggs were like rubber. Breakfast need to be hot not lukewarm,on our other visits there a few months ago we found the breakfast a big problem , still has not improved, the manager needs to address these problems,it will be a great place to stay .We will be back to stay again shortly,hope this inproved The entertainment is veey good

We have just returned from a very pleasant short stay at this out-of-town hotel. The hotel is located in the commuter town of Claregalway approx 8km (5mls) from Galway city on the N17 Sligo road. There is a Bus Eirean stop just a few yards from the hotel door, 6euro return to the city centre. This hotel is very well appointed and tastefully decorated and a delightful ambience. All staff very pleasant and welcoming, and check-in very smooth. Our room was spotless and spacious, very comfortable bed, satellite tv and trouser press. En-suite was also spotless. We had two evening meals in the attached Cussacks cafe bar- lovely food! You MUST try the burger, a real gourmet treat! If you're going into Galway by car or bus leave a little extra time as this is a busy commuter route, Recommended without reservation!

We had our wedding reception at the Claregalway Hotel on the 30th December 2013 and we just cannot begin to praise the hotel enough.

From our initial enquiries through to the day itself, we were made feel so welcome and special. We were greeted on the day of our first enquiry with a glass of bubbly and strawberries! We had visited a number of hotels in Galway and had not received such treatment! Nora was incredibly professional and insightful with advice on all aspects of getting married. She went way above and beyond the call of duty. We booked and paid a deposit immediately! The staff are so friendly and helpful, all the waitresses and waiters who were so efficient and friendly. While all the staff were great we must emphasise how wonderful Nora was. She took care of us on the day and the months prior to the big day with such a high level of professionalism, more like what you would see in a five star hotel. She was such a pleasure to deal with and we can honestly say she helped make it a stress free experience and more than contributed to it being the best day of our lives.

The day itself was every bride and grooms dream, from the welcome reception with a red carpet and champagne through to the late bar we were treated with such courtesy and friendliness. As for the food …the attention to detail is a force to be reckoned with!! There was a wedding picture of us on the front desk and on our menus which was very personal and hugely impressive.. it was first class, everybody that attended the day was so impressed with everything on the menu, and the generosity with the portions. Some people were given three helpings!! The menu was faultless even down to the hotel’s choice of house wine. All our guests were so impressed with the service, the quality and the quantity of the food. The wedding room was more like what you would see in a five star hotel. It is absolutely stunning. The hotel is spotless and the bathrooms and smoking area are very close to the main room which is very convenient for people.

I was asked so many times how I was so relaxed on the day of my wedding and I have to thank Nora for a large part of that. From the moment we booked the Claregalway Hotel I felt at ease and knew everything was going to be perfect. Nora knows exactly how to run a perfect wedding down to the finest detail. We have been to many weddings and have never seen such great service. I would recommend Nora and the Claregalway Hotel to anybody looking for 5 star quality, professionalism, a stress free seam free wedding in a beautiful hotel at a very competitive price. I will never be able to thank you enough for the wonderful day you provided for us!! Thank you thank you thank you!!!

I stay here on a regular basis during the week.. All in all service is good. Staff are pleasant through out. If I was to moan about something it's the terrible Wi fi service available And please be adventures and change the soup from vegetable to something else.

Dear Bobby A,

Thank you for your overall lovely review as always we are continuously striving to improve and delighted with any feedback we receive. The WiFi in Claregalway Hotel is something we are currently looking into and hopefully will meet your standard for your next visit. Regarding the soup, from gathering feedback from both regular guest and locals alike we have found that offering the 'old time' favourite of Vegetable Soup as a daily option much more palatable for our consumers then offering different varieties. However we have taken your comments on board and will note for future references.

Overall thank you for your pleasant and honest review and look forward to seeing you again soon.

Kind Regards
Paul Gill
Managing Director
