This is a very nice hotel and conference center. Rooms were very comfortable and the staff at the desk, especially Louise, were helpful. It is a rather big place. The pool and gym were very nice but quite a maze to walk to it from our room. The restaurant was average, the wait staff very good. The bar was crowded anytime after 4pm. There were, however, a few things that disappointed - the bar had a sign outside of it saying no children under 16 allowed in the bar after 9 pm. Several nights we went in and it was crowded but there were many young children, mostly under 10 , in the bar. No one from the staff seemed to care. Also, there were many families at the hotel, which is fine, however, when young children are running through the hallways yelling at midnight, no one seemed to care. It was an easy bus ride into Galway City, less than10 minutes and the bus schedule was easy to figure out. A suggestion if you are staying more than a few days (we stayed 6) is to go into town and buy a weekly bus pass. that way you can ride the buses anywhere as much as you would need to. Some of the hotel has been renovated, yet some areas were still in need of updating - some carpeting, the furniture in the lounge area. The breakfast was very good - eggs, bacon, toast, cereals, fruit. Some members of our party took advantage of the spa and had massages that they said were excellent and good value.
