Basic room but clean and it had a large comfortable bed. Clean but small bathroom with bath/shower combo. The night we stayed the hotel was teeming with children and families so perhaps there was a family deal on. It felt like a very family resort type hotel with crèches and playrooms to facilitate families. It would be a great place...

Stayed here with a group of girls, we were lucky enough to get adjoining rooms.

Breakfast was very nice, we had it delivered to the room. We ate in the...

The Connacht Hotel lies on the outskirts of Galway and is a bit difficult to find because street signs are not prominent in the area. The hotel is in a modern design with little ambience. Our room had an ugly view of the ventilation pipes on the roof but, truth be said, I do not believe there is a good...

Stayed in the Connacht Hotel for one night on a Saturday. The Family Rooms could do with updating. I had requested a cot but a bed was in the room instead. I phoned reception and within five minutes the bed was gone and a cot was in it's place! Great housekeeping service. The food was OK. The two boys loved...

My husband and I were booked with this hotel through a travel agency and they put a word in that we were on our honeymoon. The hotel upgraded us to a suite with a balcony, laid out roses on the bed, and a very delicious box of chocolates! This was a perfect surprise as we were not expecting anything special....
