Beachside haven

The hotel was amazing, very efficient service at desk. we enjoyed a meal at the "pub". Great atmosphere there, good food and service. The omelettes at breakfast were best We have ever eaten. Definitely a great place to stay

The hotel is catered for older people

Cons: Reduce the excessive heating in all common areas. Upgrade the bathroom, especially the doorway into the bathroom.
Location: Walk along the bay and eat at the restaurants just past the roundabout (heading towards the City)
The hotel is right on the bay which is nice, however the hotel is an old 4 star hotel and mostly catered to older people or families. Younger visitors would much prefer being in the center of Galway.
