A very handy place to meet for business in Galway close to train station. Easy to get meeting room at short notice, free parking if you do. Free internet throughout. I use it regularly to meet colleagues and find staff good and lunches good value.

Stayed one night at the Radisson Blu, Galaway May 25th. Exceeded our expectations. Convenient to City sights, one block from the bus station, two blocks to Shop Street. Facilities and staff excellent. Will definetly recommend to friends, family.

You don't need a rent car. Excellent bus service from both Dublin and Shannor airports. Save yourself the expense and trouble. Use the bus to Galway.

Great hotel, stayed here for business a few nights in Febuary and enjoyed the stay. Great breakfast, friendly and helpful staff. It was no problem to check-in early (9 am) after a long flight. Rooms were rather small but in good shape and well equipped.

This hotel is very easy to get to by car and the bus station is just around the corner. Parking is onsite and is 5 euro. The hotel is very nice and modern. We paid $150 CDN for this stay and I would say it was worth it. Although it is not right in the heart of the city centre, its just slightly to the side and about a 10min walk.

We arrived about an hour before check in so we asked if our room was ready. Without even looking the lady said no and that check-in started in an hour. Which i understood but as we all know sometimes your room is ready before hand and there is no harm in asking. She quickly searched (and i honestly dont think she did) and still said no. Now I understand their policy but it was her attitude, she was very cold and short in conversation. Even the guy beside her noticed the tension and came over to lighten the mood by asking if we wanted to store our lugguage. We had the same attitude when we checked in later. I have no idea what her problem was but she was the worst customer service we experienced in Ireland. And honestly it really pissed me off because we had just started our trip of Galway and we were greeted with such a rude person and she just ruined this hotel for me.

But the good things...
Our room had a great view of the water and some of the city and was large. It had a mini fridge and tea etc. We had a king sized bed which was really comfortable.

Breakfast/ wi-fi inc in rooms. They offered a full irish breakfast and it was quite a good spread. also the wi-fi worked well throughout the entire hotel and rooms.

Three glorious days ( and nights) spent in a typically high standard Radisson Hotel. Efficient, virtuous and very helpful staff. Really good fare and a very high standard of room. My only gripe is having to pay €20 each time to use sauna as it is within spa area. Pool was free to clients. I have never been disappointed with Radisson service and look forward to using their Hotels in the future.

Dear Guest,

Many thanks for your fantastic comments, we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and I hope you will be a long and loyal customer of ours.

I am a little confused with regards to the €20 payment for the sauna in the spa. Was this the Thermal Suites you used, with all the hot & cold rooms, loungers etc? We do have a sauna in the pool & leisure centre, which is free of charge. I do apologise if this area was not made aware to you.

Looking forward to welcoming you back to Galway very soon.

Warm Regards,
Jennifer Duggan

we stayed in this hotel for one night last year. The room cost 170 per night b&b but it was well worth it. The room was fabulous - it was a really spacious suite with modern, stylish furnishings and a large, comfortable bed. It had a nice, clean and new bathroom and was situated on the top floor with great views over Galway. The breakfast was delcious and the staff treated us like royalty the whole time. I would stay here again. It's expensive but you get a lot for your money,
