“Did not see it as three star accomodation”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2011

We stayed in the carna bay hotel while visiting our son in gaelteacht . First of all our room had a musty smell and the radiator in the bathroom was rusty with a foul smell coming from the shower.second of all food was awful nothing was freshly made .third of all it was not worth the money and we will certainly not be visiting carna again . We have stayed in many three star hotels including Dunmore house in west cork and there is a world of difference between it and the carna bay hotel. But I have to say that the service was very very good.

This quite hotel is located in a beautiful part of Galway and not over run with tourists. The scenery is fabulous with great walks. Make sure to visit the hotel Craft shop in Glynsk for a great selection of Aran Sweaters at prices well below that charged in Dublin or elsewhere.

I was traveling with a large group and everyone agreed that Carna Bay Hotel was a special stop on our trip. The staff were extremely friendly and personable. The quiet and quaint Connemara Coast is often overlooked by tourists, but it should be considered a must see by any travelers who wish to see the real Ireland. The Connemara Coast Hotel is the perfect place to stay while experiencing the region.

The owners and staff at the hotel are wonderful. They were so helpful and provided many helpful tips to us as we explored Connemara. The rooms were a nice size and the hotel pub and restaurant served great meals. We would stay here again without hesitation!

We would highly recommend this hotel as a good base for sightseeing in the beautiful Connemara. We visited the spectacular Kylemore Abbey, the Sky Road at Clifden. Next time we would arrange a trip to the Aran Islands. The coast line in this area is rugged and spectacular, full of rocky inlets and magical light. The hotel is comfortable and feels like a home from home. It has everything that you need; but the friendly staff make it special. We had a Special Offer which meant we could not believe the value we got for our money!
