“Beautiful boutique hotel, perfect location for visiting the west!”
Reviewed 19 March 2014

There's a few reasons why this hotel is just the perfect place, firstly the staff are just amazing, never passing without a smile and extremely helpful, they went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. Next is the food, just amazing, and what you would expect from a five star hotel, also the menu options where great. The decor of the hotel means you don't want to leave! Each of the lounge areas have their own unique colour scheme, a must place to visit. Located about a 15/20 minute walk to Eyre Square, which is fine as your not disturbed by the city life at night time and you can zip around the outskirts to sight see avoiding traffic! Free ample & secure parking was a bonus.

Room Tip: If your not a fan of air conditioning and prefer fresh air request a room with a opening window, as...

We spent two nights at the g hotel and loved every bit of it! The room was gorgeous and the staff were incredibly helpful, allowing us to check in over 5hrs early following a lot of travelling.. Breakfast was delicious and the concierge were always happy to give some advice on what to see and do in Galway! I definitely will be back!

The g in Galway has a beautiful ambience, welcoming and stunning simultaneously. The staff are delightfully friendly and helpful.
It also has the most comfortable beds in beautifully appointed rooms. The restaurant is excellent, and it is also well located to explore the many other gastronomic experiences within Galway. I would highly recommend it- I have stayed with friends, with my husband and on my own and have always had a great experience.

Room Tip: Pool is a hydrotherapy pool, not a swimming pool.

I was going to a wedding in the west and decided to treat myself to a night in the G as I had heard good reports. I loved it. Very convenient as I was driving from Dublin. My room was inviting - complete with cupcakes and Image Magazine - which I liked. Next morning after breakfast in bed and spent a couple of hours in the great Spa and went home relaxed and refreshed. Going to visit a friend shortly and will treat myself to another night. Bliss! Anne O'Connor

I recently spent 3 nights at the g Hotel in Galway while traveling in Ireland. This hotel is visually stunning and so unique. The common areas are something you just have to sit back and take in.

I splurged and upgraded to a Junior Suite and was not disappointed. The room was very spacious and had a large entry way with ample closet space, a living area, large bedroom and an enormous bathroom complete with a separate tub and shower built for two. I had some difficulty figuring out how to get the temperature right in the room but once I did it was very comfortable.

One thing to note about this hotel is that it's a bit outside of the heart of town. When the weather permitted it was an enjoyable 20 minute walk to the shops and sights in Galway. In the evenings though it's definitely worth grabbing a taxi to get to and from dinner in town.

The concierge was so helpful both prior to and during my stay. We worked out an itinerary that included two day long bus tours to Connemara and the Cliffs as well as dinners at Galway's best restaurants, and a wonderful spa treatment at the ESPA spa at the hotel. All of this was no small feat given that my trip spanned Valentine's Day weekend.

The Spa at the hotel should not be missed. It was WONDERFUL! Make sure to get to your appointment very early so that you can enjoy the elaborate water experience as well as the steam room and sauna.

This hotel is definitely quite a scene at night. The bar and lounge area is packed with elegant people sipping fancy cocktails. The people watching was tremendous! That said, I consistently felt like the bar/lounge and restaurant were understaffed. The staff tried their best to keep up but service was just plain slow and inconsistent. Perhaps it was just because it was just a busy weekend. There restaurant on site (Gigi's) is nice but there are definitely better options with far better service if you go into town.

If you find yourself visiting Galway and are looking for a fun and unique place to stay with a lively bar scene and a fantastic spa, this is definitely the place for you.

Myself and my boyfriend were looking to treat ourselves to a luxurious night away and that's exactly what we got at the G Hotel in Galway. From the minute we arrived our every needs were met. Our bags were brought to our room where we met the concierge of the hotel. He introduced himself and said if we needed anything including making a reservation anywhere for dinner to let him know. The room was fabulous! 'His and Her' sinks and a lovely big bath. The shower was so powerful (if desired) and the complimentary toiletries were gorgeous. The bed was so comfortable and the adjustable heating in the room meant we had a very relaxing nights sleep. We also enjoyed cocktails in one of the beautiful of four lounges in the hotel which were lovely. Breakfast the next morning was buffet style and couldn't be faulted! A lovely end to our stay. My only flaw was the location of the hotel. We got dinner in the city centre that night and needed to get a taxi as it is not very centrally located. Other than that there was no issues at all! Cannot wait until we deserve a treat like that again.
