Beginning with the welcoming letter with a treat from their bakery to the goodbyes of a carry out coffee, everything was wonderful. Convenient amenities, local parking, gorgeous rooms with everything you need, and wonderfully friendly staff helped make our girls trip to Galway restful and enjoyable. There is nothing we can complain about this absolutely perfect hotel!

Very dark lobby, halls & bar:restaurant. Staff professional but not particularly friendly. Room large, comfortable with good bed & amenities. Excellent dinner & breakfast. Did have to request washcloths & only 2 towels provided

Euro hotel in Ireland
This is a cute hotel, they have updated an old place. It is clean and nice, more 'euro' than traditional Irish. Meaning it is sleek, not the old large furniture of the castles. We prefer the traditional but this was very nice. Breakfast was fabulous and the staff was delightful. Not much around this area, but short ride into Galway.

A nice pet-friendly hotel that is a bit dated. It's designed as a luxury hotel, but maintenance can be improved. Breakfast was ok, but nothing to write home about. It has all the amenities to make your stay comfortable, but it's not the best bang for the money.

The property was very nice and exotic in decor which we loved. The room was very cozy and we had a door which we left open all night since the weather was so nice. Would definitely recommend!
