The Connacht was our first stop after being up for 25+ hours. Check-in isn't until 3:30, but thankfully when we arrived at 12:30 they were able to let us head straight to our room. We were so relieved that they were able to accommodate us early. The rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable, and parking was not an issue....

We only had 1 night at the Connacht Hotel and it was a lovely stay. When we first arrived it didnt have that instant appeal as some do, but once inside it was great. Our room was very comfortable, unfortunately though I think there must have been a smoker in the room before us as our room smelt like smoke....
