What facilities does the hotel have for children and families?
How far is it from galways city? And is there any shopping centers nearby
It's about 23 miles from Galway city. There are some shops in the town but no shopping Center. It is a 20 minute drive to Galway city but the traffic is always very busy in there. You will love Shop street though, it's worth a visit.
