WHAT WE LOVE...

This modern hotel houses everything you'd need for a fun city break in Galway, from comfortable accommodation, a decent spa with added extras such as float therapies, good food focusing on local fare and eye-wateringly gorgeous views of Lough Atalia. The staff are welcoming and don't hold back when it comes to giving local tips on where to visit in Galway. If you have your own car you'll find the ample car parking available very handy, though those travelling by train will be grateful for the short distance to the hotel. You can walk into the city centre in 15minutes for cafés, restaurants and of course traditional Irish pubs.

THE DETAILS

Location

As we came by train, we were delighted the station was so near.

Galway city centre isn't too far away on foot, or see the beautiful sights of Connemara, including the National Park.
By plane: flights from Birmingham and Edinburgh take 1 hour 15 minutes, and 1 hour 30 minutes from London to Shannon. It's an hour's drive to the hotel. On-site parking costs €10 per day. skyscanner.net
