Booked a 3 night mini break here and had a fabulous time! Reception staff could not have been more welcoming to everyone, including the dog! Our suite was spacious, very comfortable and had lovely touches... shortbread biscuits and chocolate dipped strawberries on arrival for the adults and generous doggie bag - literally - for my yorkshire terrior! Breakfast is amazing...

Stayed here two nights when visiting Galway. We did the dinner/breakfast package at The Pins restaurant, and the food was fabulous! The restaurant was very lively and had a great wine list. Both dinner and breakfast were delicious. The room was large and luxurious with sumptuous linens and mattress. The spa products were great! Short trip to Galway and very...

The staff at reception were warm and helpful - in fact, they had tried to phone us, to check we were ok, when we were later than our anticipated time of arrival. There was a handwritten welcome note in the room, with a little welcome snack from the wonderful hotel bakery! The decor was tasteful and contemporary, and everything in...

Pizza and calzone were excellent. Other options include fish and steak. Kids shared pizza dessert of chocolate, marshmallows and strawberries. Yum. Although the restaurant was very busy service was excellent and wine selection was substantial

We had dinner one night last week here. The food was amazing and the service was top class. It was our first time being there but we will definately be going back. We were looked after by a girl called siobhan. She couldn't have been anymore helpful. Definately recommend.

Myself and my husband are just back from an amazing stay at this hotel. From start to finish the service from all the staff was the best I've come across in a long time. We arrived too early for check-in so decided to have an early lunch in the bar restaurant which was lovely. The very friendly receptionist who started...

Stayed with my husband for two nights. Its very easy to find on the main road into Barna from Galway city, a 10-15 min drive. On arrival we were greeted with a glass of ice tea which was a nice touch. Check in was quick but our first room key didnt work. The room itself was very nice, decorated well,...

The decor of this hotel was very dark and club-like. We stayed in a suite which was decorated with a bar kitchenette area, very dark walls, red lampshades. Even in daylight one felt one was in a cave. The bathroom even had flashing multicolored lights. It seemed that the hotel was trying too hard to be edgy which made the...
