We had a great couple of days at The Connacht Hotel, the staff were friendly and professional. The food was excellent , great atmosphere in the bar, and with easy access to the city center, Salthill and Connemara and all it's beauty, The Connacht IS THE PLACE TO STAY.

Great location if you have a car. Great food at a reasonable price in the restaurant. Decent, if a little dated pool (but make sure to pre-book a session during Covid). Friendly and helpful staff. Borrowed a fan when the room was too muggy - no problem. Would recommend if you’re driving as car parking is free and right in front of the hotel.
