Galway Bay Hotel, Galway, Ireland
Very nice hotel and highly recommend. Enjoyed views over the Bay. Beautiful rooms with modern bathroom and very comfortable. Staff very friendly and helpful. Loved the breakfast spread!

Galway the friendliest town in Ireland
We really lucked out as it was cultural night in Ireland and we attended the Titanic dinner on our first night. At the same time there were two Irish weddings. Staff was great, being on the beach is sweet, and there is a beautiful garden next door. You are $10 cab ride to downtown and Shop Street and the walk along the river is beautiful. The hotel has everything you need and the location is perfect.

Really nice hotel, spacious bedrooms, friendly staff, delicious breakfast. Spotless swimming pool and changing rooms. Only small complaint was that I think 4pm is a bit too late for check in and bathroom was a bit dated. Overall a really pleasant experience in a super location.
