About The Connacht Hotel

Relaxed Galway hotel with pool close to Ballyloughane Strand

East of Galway City

The Connacht Hotel is on Dublin Road, a 10-minute drive east of Galway city center and just over an hour's transfer from Ireland West Airport Knock. It's right across the street from the waters of Lough Atalia, and 10 minutes by car to the beaches of Ballyloughane Strand.

Galway's theaters

Galway city is considered the Arts capital of Ireland, and you can enjoy theater companies such as Macnas and The Druid, or street performers on Eyre Square. A 15-minute drive away is The Claddagh, home of traditional golden Irish rings, and the charming seaside town of Salthill.

Seasonal, local dishes

Having been built up from a family-run business, The Connacht Hotel retains its charm while boasting a gym, and a large indoor pool. Rueben's Restaurant bases its seasonal menu on local produce, and you can park free before enjoying a beer or cocktail at Bar Solo.

Kitchenettes and WiFi

The 358 elegant guestrooms, and suites with kitchenettes, are modern with free WiFi throughout and flat-screen TVs with premium channels. Safes are provided to keep your valuables secure, and you can use the coffeemaker to make a nice drink after soaking in a large bathtub.
