We were down here for a stag weekend and we were not disappointed with this hotel. The hotel is approx a 5 min walk to Galway city cent (shop street) and 5 mins to the train station, very accessible.
The hotel staff are all lovely from check in to departure if there was anything else they could do to help us they were there for us.
The rooms are very modern and nice and clean, in all of our rooms there is a large extractor fan in the bathroom just an FYI turn it off before going to bed at night as if you turn on the light during the night it takes a good 5 mins for it to switch off and can be quite loud.
We had dinner in the restaurant and it was really great quality, fish is very fresh and the portions are quite large, but we were quite hungry after all of our activities so this was perfect for us. Also breakfast is a self-service affair and the quality was also excellent.
The only down side was the price of the hotel as it seemed very expensive but it was in or around the same price as all hotels in Galway that weekend so there could have been something on and in the end it was worth the money.
The hotel does have a gym but no swimming pool or other spa facilities.
Highly recommend this hotel for couples, weekends away and business trips. Will be back for another visit shortly.
