Do t stay here
Does not look like pictures . Very dated not nice staff. Overall disappointed in everything even though it was clean. If you book through third party you will be put far away in a children’s section

Exceptional 10.0
Easygoing and friendly
This was our second year to stay with you, as of last year we found the staff extremely helpful and friendly, all around the hotel is very child friendly and also wheelchair friendly. It's a great place to stay in Galway. we also enjoy the sausages you serve at breakfast and were wondering what brand they are or do you make them yourselves ? We will always go back to The Connacht .
June, ie1 night family trip
Fair 4.0
I found the 8.4 rating deceiving. And the hotel is INSANELY OVERPRICED for what it was. The pool was was the best part of the hotel. And the breakfast had a lot of cereal choices for gluten free people so that was good, but my father said the coffee was substandard. Also there was NO FRIDGE! It was not that bad,the crapes were delicious but I was a bit disappointed because there was barely any cheese! Moving on to the room,the room was extremely small and we had payed for a double bed a twin bed and a futon bed. When got there,was no futon bed. We called about 3 times! Then we left to go explore. When we came back we expected to see a beautiful futon bed but there was futon bed instead there was a cot. Also, the lobby smells heavily of smoke because there’s ALWAYS smokers right outside. I would give this hotel 4/10. It wasn’t the worst but it sure could use some improvement.

Very good 8.0
T'was grand but I wouldn't rush back!
The hotel was great, very close to the city. 20min walk or 10min on the bus. The food was fine, the service good but the cleanliness wasn't great - trays left outside rooms for hours and empty bottles left in the windows of public areas for most of the day. The main bar was clean and tidy but the over flow breakfast area was grubby. The reception area was clean but at night time the entrance was surrounded by smokers and there was a strong presence of security which we found odd at a family hotel.
