No air conditioning - carnival next door. NOT the relaxing experience I had expected!

Beautiful View

Posted 02-Jul-2017
Pros: The actual building, it looks old but is up-to-date with all the modern conveniences we expect. The staff is so very friendly and helpful.
Cons: I would love free bottles of water in my room, but that is a bit petty. It would be a great perk.
Location: The Aran Islands, The Cliffs of Mohr, the Wild Atlantic Way, the National Shrine of Knock and the city center of Galway is a fun happening area.
Absolutely fabulous hotel! It is a beautiful, old, but modernized hotel on Galway Bay! It has something for everyone, dancing on Sunday's for the older crowd and camps for the kiddos. When we were there, there was a local moms group meeting in a newly renovated room with beautiful views of the bay! Our room was comfortable and lovely. We like old, the room gives off the old feeling, but is totally up-to-date, large screen TV, coffee/tea pot, plugs for charging, wonderful water pressure, and soft squishy towels. The staff is so incredibly friendly and helpful. They will solve any problem, will make and arrange adventures, and the wait staff is amazing. Our waiter, Imer, in the pub our last night there, was unbelievably knowledgeable and helpful. We wanted to eat in the pub because we like the relaxed atmosphere, but we wanted the menu from the restaurant. His answer to all our questions was always, "No problem, what ever you'd like." And believe me we had many questions about wine, whiskey and cheese, and he had the answers. At the end of our meal, we asked him to sit down so we could recap our evening and make sure he knew how much we appreciated his help and knowledge. We will definitely return, this is our hotel when in Galway!
