I have eaten here a few times. Staff are friendly. Food is very good. What is on the menu is exactly what you get. All the food is reasonably priced. I have tried there breakfast menu as well. A returning customer.

I used to pass through Claregalway as a child and loved the beautiful abbey ruins and the arch bridge. However, the frantic building during the boom was often accomplished without much thought to aesthetics and modern Claregalway has the look of a US strip mall.

We had lunch and the place was busy. Mixture of clientele. We chose soup and sandwiches-the helpful waitress suggested the special-this worked out cheaper than what we ordered which was basically the same thing but we were grateful for her help. I ordered the garlic mushrooms which were to be honest bland. The soup/sandwiches were tasty. I would return and...

We were pleasantly surprised with a small modern hotel. Staff from the receptionist through to the bar and waitressing were very helpful and pleasant to converse with. The...

Stayed here last night as we had a wedding. Lovely spot- we ended up staying in one of the apartments. They are about a two minute walk from the hotel but they would be ideal for a family as there was a small secure back garden. The place was spotless. We had a lovely cooked to order breakfast. The staff...
