Fabulous 8.8 From 451 reviews

Galway Bay Hotel
Our stay was alright. It is situated nearly 2 miles from the centre. Nice walk there along the prom. There are some restaurants and bars close to the hotel. We think there is some refurbishment ongoing. Our room was clean but a bit outdated. Check in was delayed as our room was not ready, but the Manager did apologise. Bar staff were tremendous and very friendly. Good bar food. Breakfast was good. Overall OK but nothing special

Galway Bay Hotel
Lovely hotel & excellent staff.
Excellent hotel in a stunning location. Staff are very helpful and welcoming. Breakfasts are quite remarkable and should not be rushed. Some closer attention to room maintenance and detailed cleaning in the room we had would have given top score. All in all a very pleasurable stay and we will return again.

Galway Bay Hotel
Good and characterful
Very pleased with the hotel - despite rain, the room was spacious even with 2 kids, even with a partial sea view. Used the pool which was empty although a little small, had a drink in the atmospheric bar and breakfast was pretty good. Location great for Salthill and seafront although Galway itself would be a bit of a walk. Car park needs a bit of improvement but if that's the only downside...

Very Good8.0
Friendly Staff
The hotel is in an excellent location overlooking Galway Bay. On arrival you enter a very impressive foyer. Reception staff were very friendly and helpful. Staff in the bars and restaurants are equally helpful. Rooms are large and comfortable.
