Had my son's communion party here in early May. Staff were fantastic. We had been let down by cloonacauneen castle after originally booking there. So glad in the end. The Ardilaun could not have been more helpful. Brilliant food, staff and entertainment. The children loved the gardens. Can't wait to go back. Couldn't recommend them enough! Thank you!

The room is just beautiful, the bed firm, and the view into the gardens lovely. Top that off with friendly, efficient service by the staff, and a wonderfully delicious meal in the hotel restaurant and you have all the ingredients for a fantastic stay.

This was a traditional, large hotel. It was quite busy as other activities were going on when we arrived. I do believe it was a wedding reception. Our room was huge with two beds and a large picture window overlooking the gardens and part of the dining area. It was a bit confusing coming and going from our room as...

I have never seen anything like it. A large, comfortable room is what one would expect. But the bathroom! One bathtub, as one would expect; plus a separate shower cubicle; a telephone beside the toilet; and two washbasins. On the floor below the lobby is a large swimming pool (large for a hotel anyway), plus a small gym, steam room,...

When our taxi didn't arrive on time for a very tight connection, the desk supervisor Ava arranged for one of the hotel staff Aisling to transport our group of four by private vehicle, who in turn refused to accept any compensation, and what's more insisted that we take two of her personal umbrellas for the day - just in case....

We enjoyed a lovely one night stay here. The hotel felt like an amazing, old fashion, majestic hotel. The room was large, clean and well decorated. The food in the restaurant was excellent and reasonably priced. Would love to return!

We are just back from a wonderful weekend at The Ardilaun Hotel in Galway. We had a two night say over the May bank holiday weekend.

We spent only one night at the Ardilaun but greatly enjoyed it, from the large room (one of four pet-friendly rooms with doors opening out on to the back garden), to the large and fully-equipped gym to which we had access, to the cozy restaurant.
