This is the coolest and most glamorous hotel in galway, the staff treat you like royalty, the food is gorgeous and so are the cocktails. Our room was fab we booked a junior suite and it had a gas fire, a big velvet comfy couch and a huge bed. The bathroom had a massive double shower that was so powerful it felt like a massage and the bath omg! Free standing bath with a tv on the wall right in front of it and big fluffy bathrobes waiting when you get it. The decor in the hotel is stunning all around and it is so relaxing, can't recommend it enough, will def be back, 5 stars all the way.

My husband and I stayed here last year for his birthday. Upon arrival we were pleasantly surprised to hear that we had been upgraded to a junior suite which was spacious and fabulous. I had mentioned in an email that it was my husbands birthday and he received a birthday card and complimentary buns which we're waiting for him in the room.

We decided to eat in the hotel that night and we weren't disappointed with the standard and quality of the food and service. The hotel is extremely modern and the facilities within the room were finished to a very high standard. In fact I felt it was the best shower that I had ever been in. Unfortunately we didn't get to use the spa area as I was pregnant at the time and did not feel like it. We will definitely be going again. The only thing I can fault was the cost of the stay. It was definitely a treat for us and not something we could afford to do on a more regular basis unfortunately. Although since staying there I now receive regular emails with great offers and deals which we intend to use when we can find a babysitter.

I have luckily stayed in the G four times since they opened 8 years ago. However it has been 3 years since we were there last and we were nervous that standards might have slipped. That was not the case. Hotel is well maintained, staff were friendly and the spa was beautiful. One of the best 5 star hotels in Ireland.

We stayed in a Junior suite this time but wouldn't bother upgrading next time, the standard rooms are lovely. We weren't impressed with the food, especially the desserts and pastries. It was all very average, not 5 star standard. Luckily Galway has loads of restaurants! Loved the spa, Espa treatments are worth the money and the staff are very professional.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for becoming a loyal and return guest to the g. It was lovely to read that you have visited us four times since 2008. We were so pleased to see that you consider the g to be one of the best five star hotels in Ireland. We have a broad range of bedroom categories and as you have mentioned our standard rooms, the Superior category, are still beautiful. Naturally we were disappointed to read that you were not entirely satisfied with our desserts and pastry offerings and we have shared this feedback with our Head Chef, Pauline.
Thank you once again for such a lovely review and we hope to welcome you back for the fifth time again soon.
Kind Regards,
The g Hotel Management Team

Booked here for a very very special occasion!! A proposal. From start to finish it was pure luxury and comfort at its best with impeccable service. Arrived at 4pm and greeted by very pleasant front desk staff who took time and gave a mini tour of hotel and services available. Received a complementary upgrade to junior suite and it is definitely the nicest room I have ever stayed in, large comfy bed, ceiling to floor windows full width of the room, large flat screen tv, mini bar, fridge, sofa, armchairs, and open fire which was really cosy, bathroom kitted out in a large bath(big enough for two!!!), double sinks and showers with a tile tv fitted in wall. Breakfast was an impressive array of fresh fruits, pastries, breads and real fruit juices. Large variety of hot breakfast options which we sampled and was delicious. My fiancée utilised the spa which was thoroughly enjoyed we both utilised the thermal suite and it was very relaxing. Only criticism was the €10 charge to use it, should really be free to guests giving the price of the rooms. We also had the pink afternoon tea, which was perfect. Extremely impressive so much so my new fiancée (haven't got tired of that yet) had booked two nights for my up coming birthday, can't wait to return. The bar is very comfortable and staff are good fun and very professional. The hotel as a whole is pricey but worth every cent.....

Had a rare treat of an afternoon with friends, whilst having an girly weekend in Galway we decided to spoil ourselves rotten and visit The G Hotel for their afternoon tea, the décor was fabulous, the furniture so comfy but the glass of champagne along with the delightful afternoon tea was simply devine.

stayed here for a girls weekend ages ago, meant to write a review and only getting to it now!!Could not fault anything about this place!!Food was amazing, breakfast was a funfair of food!! everything was amazing especially the cocktails. Loved all the different lounges and the rooms. Enjoyed the spa but did strike me as being a little on the small side. Cant remember the name of the pub/restaurant across the road but lovely for a quick bite of lunch!!Looking forward to a return visit!!
