What can you say about this place other than "Wow"? The interior was purportedly designed by a milliner, and the hotel (another product of the heady "Celtic Tiger" day) is nothing if not, uh, flamboyant. From the garish faux-Versaille pink sitting room to the dark halls lit with dim baseboard lamps to the retro toggle light switches and leopard-spotted ironing board, this is a place you will like, find amusing, or hate. I was in the middle category. The breakfast was a huge plus -- well prepared and surprisingly varied (how about poached cod with bechamel sauce?). The staff was great, especially the wonderfully helpful, knowledgeable maitre-d, Noel. A 15-minute walk from downtown Galway, it is easily reached by car.
