We have now visited the Menlo twice with a year apart. The food is fabulous and the service fantastic. If you are in the area I would thoroughly recommend a meal here! The steak is cooked to perfection and the creme brûlée is out of this world. Toilets are spotless. The staff can't do enough to help. We have never stayed overnight here but are looking to come back in the future and stay here. Well worth a visit for a lovely meal!

We loved staying at Menlo Park Hotel! We were at first apprehensive of the construction, but the hotel worked around the construction being done, and it was almost impossible to detect that there was construction happening at all if we hadn't seen it. Our hotel room was luxurious- we were on our honeymoon and they had left a box of chocolates as well as a congratulatory note for us when we arrived. The hotel concierge was very pleasant as well and was very willing to help out when needed. Menlo Park is only a 25-minute walk from Galway City Centre, but there are many shops along the way. We were very glad to have stayed here!

Had a fantastic stay in the Menlo - complimentary champagne and nibbles on arrival and the room was lovely. We ate in the bar one of the nights and the service and food were brilliant. Breakfast was the same - very attentive staff and great choice of food. Would recommend.

After a very long day we stumbled across this place by chance. We needed somewhere to stay and found a lovely, spacious and affordable room. The staff in the bar and restaurant were particularly friendly and welcoming and the food was absolutely amazing.

Located out of the heart of Dublin, this is an old style Irish hotel that has been renovated. On arrival scaffolding and builders trucks warned of what was ahead. The hotel is a U shape and one if the three wings was undergoing extensive construction/renovation.

After a smooth checkin we made our way to the room narrowly avoiding doorways and corridors with wet paint. Murphy's law struck and our room was right next to the construction. It was an average size with a firm comfortable bed. Basic room amenities were provided but there was no fridge.

While it is no doubt difficult to renovate a hotel and continue operating, I felt that construction noise, including banging on our bedroom wall to 9pm was unreasonable. The following morning work and therefore noise, started at 7:30am. I also felt this was too early.

The breakfast buffet seemed to be a makeshift setup due to construction. It was a standard hotel offer, with a few extras such as smoked salmon.

When asked at checkout about my stay, I politely mentioned the noise. The staff member said I should have been emailed about it before the trip (I wasn't), offered to get the manager (I declined, can't get back lost sleep) and she took the charges for breakfast off our bill. Reasonable in the circumstance.

Avoid until renovations are complete and look for a discounted rate. It's not worth the rack rate at present, but may be after the renovations.
