Essential worker. Hotel was very efficient. Ate a late dinner, with good food. All staff friendly. Skipped breakfast this time, but usually simple and tasty. It is registered as a 3 star hotel, but i've stayed in many 4 stars with less facilities. Easy parking. I will stay again.

“Had a great experience in this hotel for 2 nights with my family of four in December, Everything from the reception staff to the dining staff were soo helpful and pleasant..Room was large ( Family Suits ) and warm, our beds were very comfy with all the lovely toiletries in the bathroom with soft white towels... Breakfast was excellent also, great choice. Our meal was gorgeous and again the staff were super nice .. Hotel on first glance was impressive as you walk into the reception/lobby it’s very clean,modern and welcoming. On your right is a little bar/Cafe where you can grab a coffee,Tea, soft drinks .. We would certainly recommend Connacht Hotel to anyone wanting to stay in Galway and we will certainly be back”. Well done Connacht Hotel!
