We stayed here recently while my wife was on a work assignment in Galway. Check-in was unorganized and slow. Be warned, there is no ramp at the front entrance for rolling in bags. A flight of stairs to the front entrance and a lift for the handicapped. The decor here is very pink and incredibly odd. The hallways are practically...

I'm not sure how this place can be so highly rated. Here is how our experience went. We arrived at the hotel. No one greeted us outside so we brought our own bags in.

Dear Guest, We were all greatly upset to read the review you posted on Trip Advisor. Let us begin by stating that two Superior King bedrooms had been booked for you by your travel agent. In order to have upgraded to a Deluxe Twin bedroom a nightly supplement of €40 would apply. However as a gesture, the front desk team...

I checked back in to The G (my third stay at this hotel), after checking out of Park House Hotel; if service is how you define a hotel, then Park House is one of the world's best hotels and The G, one of the worst! I emailed the hotel at around 10am to ask if my suite was ready, the...

Large rooms, especially by European standards. Very modern & great decor! Easy to miss when driving, as it's adjacent to a small shopping strip and not well publicized. A bit of a walk to the main shopping area, but only a 5-10e taxi ride & they are on the scene immediately when called up by the concierge. Highly recommend the...
