Recently stayed here for two nights. Staff very friendly, bar food was very good. Steak was done to perfection. Leisure facilities were good. Although hotel is a bit outside the city it suited us perfectly as easy driving access to Galway Clinic.

I have stayed here on many occasions and the service is second to none, always welcomed with a smile (a smile really goes a long way) I stay in hotels alot and you would be surprised how sour some receptionists can be. The food is always perfect and hot (unlike some hotels located close by. I hope to be coming back really soon and ill be bringing my wife and kids to take advantage of the great swimming pool and other facilities. Keep up the good work guys.

Just back from yet another enjoyable stay at the Connacht. This hotel is really buzzing and was packed over the Halloween break. There was live music in the bar every night last week and the kids club ran every evening from 6:00pm til 10:30pm, many thanks to Donna & team for keeping the boys entertained! The staff are so friendly & helpful, nothing is too much trouble. Sincerest thanks to Thomas & all the staff for making our stay enjoyable. We look forward to seeing ye all again on New Year's Day :)

Room Tip: The hotel also has one & two bedroom suites/apartments with separate living area & kitchenet...

This hotel's location was not as centrally located as I'd have liked, but could have overlooked that if the service, and accomodations had been better,. From the outside it looked like a beautiful hotel and the lobby was very nice. However the front desk staff were not very friendly or accomdating. There was no porter service at check in. THey did have luggage trollies though. Upon going to our room we had to dodge the obsticle course of cleaning ladies who had towels,sheets and God knows what all over the floors and were sitting on the floors as well taking a break. We had to ask them to move so we coudl pass and they acted as though we were inconveniencing them greatly. I am in a wheelchair and my husband had a walker., Upon entering our room we were very disappointed. Room needs to be updated and was very small and cramped for a room that is supposed to be wheelchair accessible. The bathroom started out ok ,very accessible and had a shower chair.However when you used the shower, the whole bathroom flooded due to slow drain . This was reported to the front desk upon check out. They seemed unconcerned by this. Don't think we will stay here again in future visits. However on a positive note it was a very wheelchair friendly hotel, plenty of handicapped parking spaces right up front close to front door of hotel and ramps and wide door ways.

Stayed here at the beginning of the midterm break , it was fantastic stay .
Food was excellent on both nights, the bar has been refurbished since our last stay and really makes an impression. As per usual the staff were top class , I have been going to this hotel for years and if their improvements continue I will be going for many more .

Stayed here before. Kids asked to come back to see the staff of the kids club as they enjoyed it so much the last time. Had a 2 bed suite. The suite was just perfect for our family. Great it was so near the pool for the kids.. Didnt get a chance to sample the cocktails this time!!!
