    The location of the Galway Bay Hotel is ideal, directly across the street from the Bay itself and the lovely promenade. The staff was courteous and friendly, the rooms were nicely appointed and the breakfast was top notch!

    Tired decor, dark hallways and expensive!!! This place has a prime location but that's it. shouldn't be rated a 4 star luxury hotel. Our room right on parking lot level that happened to be next to a carnival in full swing.
