The breakfast was one of the most dismal during my trip -- there was no fruit, although the waiter brought me some pears and apples after I asked whether there was any fruit at all. The nice facade was deceiving. The only... More

We came here for dinner only and was treated to excellent Irish cuisine. I had a seafood chowder that was amazing and she had smoked sausage plate that was served on a slate shingle. Very good as well. Service was just OK, but the food made up for any deficiencies.

A great location to explore Spiddal and a 20 minute drive into Galway City. Rooms basic but nice and clean. We had a nice Seaview that we had preordered.

I hate to have to do this, but really had a terrible experience when we stopped here for food. The restaurant was busy when we arrived for lunch. It's decorated in a country kitchen style and the food is typical pub grub. There was one vegetarian option, pasta in a spicy sauce. When the food arrived, we were told there... More
