The Ardilaun Hotel was a nicer accommodation in Galway. It was a "healthy" walk to town to hear some of that traditional music down in the Latin quarter! The hotel was nice but a bit dated. The breakfast was mediocre by comparison to many of the breakfasts we experienced in Ireland. The indoor pool was a draw when booking but...

My wife and myself stayed here 3 nights early Jan. Classy family run hotel in a very quiet area outside Galway City, also very close to Salthill. Staff, food, drink, leisure facilities, all faultless. Lovely bedroom. Bed and pillows were my personal bugbear, too hard.

Making all our arrangements from overseas, we thought might make things difficult but Maureen and her team ensured a stress free experience. Maureen was accommodating, professional and attentive from the first email to the last dessert and throughout our stay in the hotel. Maureen even managed to secure fantastic...

We all arrived and gathered in reception. Then shown to our room for lunch. It was the 1st January and quiet cold outside as was our room. Many had to leave our coats on. Soup was served and was nice but had to ask for more bread to be brought to the tables. The main was served. Choice of beef...

Staff were charming and the hotel was warm. It was a twenty minute (SLOW) stroll to Salthill. All in all it was a standard 4 star hotel. In my opinion the swimming pool could be two degrees warmer but the dressing rooms had underfloor heating and were spacious. The breakfast lacks excitement. Would recommend to a friend.
