The Clayton Hotel Galway was our 3rd hotel while touring the beautiful country of Ireland. The staff was great, very helpful with directions to the city center and other local places of interest. The continental breakfast was included with our room, so we took advantage of it daily! Very good with something for everyone - juices, fresh fruit, hot meats...

One of the best hotels we have been to for in room facilities. Plenty of drawer space, room safe, well maintained decor, even the bathroom mirror was heated to stop condensation. Would highly recommend and would use this as our base for future visits to Galway.

On the plus side rooms large, beds comfy, and breakfast was very good. Improvement suggested, supply washcloths in bathroom, soap in shower rather than the pungent shower gel and provide softer sheets. Also some seating in the lobby would be nice. Be aware it's a 18 euro taxi to Quay St.
