I would recommend this hotel, while not flashy or ultra modern it is comfy (a wee bit old fashioned but ok) and has all the extras that you would expect in a good hotel (including interactive tv/ free internet etc) and more than that from the first contact with staff you feel at home. The staff go out of there...

Superior room is spacious. Good breakfast and a nice location that is away from the city. The staff was friendly and everything handled in a quick manner. I would stay here again. The pub is also good and provided us with a bucket of ice.

We were very happy with our stay at Westwood. The service desk went out of their way to accomodate us and helped us book a day tour of Connamara and even had the bus pick us up at the hotel so we didn't have to drive into City Centre and pay all day for parking. Breakfast was really great, bar...
