Decent hotel, with a big downside
The facilities are fine, the cost isn't crazy, and the staff is first rate, but there is a major flaw which isn't fixable. An amusement park - including a five story ferris wheel - sits directly next to the hotel. It doesn't show in any promotional photo, an omission we found deceptive. Supposedly the park closes by 9:30pm. It didn't on some nights, but even if it had, for anyone unlucky enough to have a room on that side of the hotel, daytime noise made relaxing/napping in the room impossible.
We also spent about 120 euros for taxis to and from Galway during our four night visit. Walking to town takes over half an hour, and the weather is instantly changeable. That being said, 30 euros a day to arrive on time - and dry - for sightseeing or dinner reservations was worth the money.
