Beautiful setting for a lovely hotel. Rooms were clean and very nice, bathroom updated and large. Food for breakfast and dinner was delicious. The grounds are beautiful. Only negatives would be it is pretty far from town and the staff was not too friendly.

Spent the weekend at Ardilaun while attending a sporting competition in Galway. The food in the restaurant was excellent but the very friendly and helpful staff were what really made the difference. There is a very cosy bar at the entrance and again some super staff, everyone is so helpful. This was our second stay and would highly recommend.

Organised a weekend break for a seniors group three nights dinner b/b. Management staff could not be more helpful.All members of the group thoroughly enjoyed their stay and all spoke very highly of the hotel. Rooms were all very clean and tidy, food was excellent and all staff very friendly. A brilliant hotel and would recommend the hotel for groups.
