We had a wonderful stay. Only slight negative for us was that our son could not use all the facilities although he was accompanied and over 12, as the hotel policy stipulated under 16s could not access the gym and certain leisure facilities.

Hotel Its a very traditional hotel just outside of the city. Perfectly located, with lovely grounds. The inside; although slightly dated is very nice and has a certain glamour in comparison to more modern hotels. The staff are extremely helpful and no query/task is too much

Dear guest, The Ardilaun Hotel is approx. 1.5 km from Galway city centre and an easy walk if you like to do so, it's all downhill. Alternatively there is a public bus service which runs past the front gate every 30 minutes. We also have a direct line to the BIG O Taxi company which will provide a cab in minutes. The cost of a taxi to city centre is approx €10. I hope this information is helpful and we look forward to welcoming you to The Ardilaun. Kind regards, The Ardilaun team

Thank you for your mail Eric. I could currently offer the following: €597 for 3 nights accommodation for a twin or double room to include bed, full irish breakfast and dinner on two evenings. If you preferred to opt for a rate excluding dinner, it would be €438 for 3 nights accommodation. If you wished to book this, please contact the hotel directly - +353 91 521433 or email us (unfortunately it is not possible for me to provide you with the email address in this response as tripadvisor does not allow .. you will be able to get same from our website) Our reservations team will be happy to discuss with you if you wished to upgrade to more superior room/suite. I cannot tell from your message what rooms you viewed or what rate you were shown. In terms of the rates offered on tripadvisor, please be aware that our availability changes on a very regular basis and, as a result, rates/rooms offered on sites such as tripadvisor will change also. Thank you again for your question and I hope that we will hear from you again soon. Regards, The Ardilaun Team
