Brilliant hotel
Our stay at the Connacht hotel was nothing but great, this is my second time staying here and it’s always such a lovely hotel to stay in! Pricing is extremely reasonable, Very good location less than 10 minutes to the city centre on the bus/taxi. Very clean hotel and stuff are very helpful especially during this difficult time.
