Stayed from Friday to Monday and really enjoyed the stay. Staff couldn't do enough for you. Will definitely return. You are near everywhere but just far enough away. Food in the bar is gorgeous. Bedroom was clean and inviting.

So we stayed there for one night on a long weekend on an offer. The offer included room, breakfast and dinner. It was great value. The dinner was nice and the breakfast came in large portions. It was family friendly. The staff were very nice and accommodating. only 10-15 minutes drive to Galway city center. will consider staying there again...

We stopped here to get a meal after along drive. A plentyful plate with cooked beef melt in the mouth, good meal and pleasant service. It was very quiet in the dining area and we were served promptly with a good choice on the menu.
