“Very Nice Waterfront Spa Hotel”
Reviewed 7 June 2012

Stayed for one night while visiting Galway recently. The hotel is ideally located in the town centre near Eyre Square. The facilities (pool, sauna, steam room & outdoor waterfront hot tub) were top notch. Breakfast spread was excellent. A bit pricey on the long weekend so choices were limited but would definitely stay again if the price was right.

Radisson Blu is a good hotel but overpriced. Parking should be included with the price of your room. Also, we had better breakfasts at other hotels throughout Ireland but, Radisson was by far the largest offering. Staff made some good suggestions for me because I was coming down with a cold so I give them kudos for that. Lots of construction going on around the hotel which made crossing the street treacherous. Good location close to Eyre Square. Loved the pedestrian mall close to the hotel until we had a problem with a pickpocket. Keep an eye on your belongings.

Room Tip: Maybe ask for a room with a view.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to write about your recent experience with us. I am so sorry to hear that you were pick pocketed in the local area, that must have been very disappointing for you all .From the date of your post it looks like you were here with us whilst we were refurbishing our gym & Leisure centre. This took place for 5days and I do apologise that this interrupted your stay. As we do not own the car park in the hotel we are unable to include this in the accommodation rate. But we have arranged a discounted rate for our customers of €5 per night and are one of the cheapest in the city centre for residential car parking.

I hope that you were able to get rid of that cold before it got any worse, and that you were able to soak up the little bit of sun we were having last week.

Thank you for choosing Radisson Blu Galway.

Kind Regards,
Jennifer Duggan

The staff is amazing. We were upgraded to a 4th floor suite with balcony that was at least 40 feet long, overlooking the Galway Bay. 10 minute walk from downtown square. Andrew K. is fantastic at helping you with directions as not all streets are labeled in Galway. Stephen (bar) makes sure you are having a fantastic time. The quick way to downtown is past the bus & train station, I would recommend taking the "longer" way to downtown as the individuals waiting for the bus and train were sometimes sketchy.

Room Tip: My wife enjoyed the spa.

Radisson Blu hotel is in the perfection location of Galway sitting. Once you park your car you can leave there, everything is within walking distance. On arrival check in was very quick and staff very pleasant. We had a twin room which was lovely with a nice view. We had some nice vino the outdoor beer garden which was fab, it felt like we were abroad. Only had breakfast in the hotel and it was lovely, great choice of food and all very fresh. Over all I would recommned and can't wait to go back.

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.
