A good base
We very much enjoyed our stay at this hotel. It's not far from the centre of Galway (about 20-30 mins walk, or 5 minutes by bus), has ample parking and makes a good base for exploring the area. It's a very large hotel and so has lots of tour groups etc staying but that didn't bother us. The food was good, there was a live band in the bar while we were there, and we made full use of the leisure facilities (gym, pool, sauna and steam room). The room itself was also clean, comfortable and a good size. Would recommend.
