Amazing food and service. The food was an amazing take on the local ingredients found in the west of Ireland. The drinks were outstanding as well and Barry at the bar was great. Can't wait to go back.

Yes, I would think they do, most all hotels in Ireland cater for twin bed room requests, but best to confirm direct with hotel. K

Hi Judy, yes, we caught a cab, cost (from memory) less than €10. The roads up to the hotel are quite steep so unless you want the workout, cab is the way to go! Galway is stunning in the Centre, lots of shopping! Enjoy, Anita
