Pros: Room, staff and location.
Cons: Nothing.

First time to Ireland

Posted 18-Jul-2014
Cons: Staff could be more helpful before being asked
Location: Town was fun, walkable distance..The Hop on/ Hop off train was disappointing..didn't allow enough stop so get out and return schedule was very vague..
Confusing entering the dining room when no one is at the greeting desk..didn't know what to do. Check in and out people were pleasant and friendly. They did not offer adapters still check in, which you NEED and when the desk was called we were told to come down and get one....

Great Location; friendly staff

The Galway Bay Hotel was the perfect location for a 2 week stay in the west of Ireland. The view was fabulous, the hotel clean and comfortable. All amenities were available and there is a wonderful full buffet breakfast that comes with your room. There are many events on the weekend, but the rooms themselves are always quiet. The staff was helpful and friendly calling me by name after a few days and able to meet any needs I had. I strongly recommend it to anyone who is considering a visit to Galway or the neighbouring areas. I will return I hope!

It was okay

Lots of old people, and a far walk into downtown galway. It was fine, but definitely know what you are getting into. It's a long walk into galway. The breakfast was also the worst I had in ireland so didn't waste money on that.

Just OK

Posted 09-Jun-2014
Pros: Being right on the water
Cons: The quality of the food they serve in their restaurants, breakfast and bars needs improving.
Location: Lots of places to go to do day trips from. The cliffs of Moher are close by, Connemara National park is close by,
A nice looking 4 star hotel right on the water seems like a no brainer but I found myself disappointed. This hotel sure did give me the impression that their big customer the tour companies were the most important thing and took priority over all their other guests. It just failed miserably at giving you the feeling that you were in a four star hotel.
