We stayed here during covid-19 restrictions and found the hotel conformed to all covid-19 requirements. The place was spotless and there were loads of sanitizers. The hotel is roomy and airy and big enough to manage distancing. There is good parking. The rooms were a good size and immaculately clean. The room had everything required. We slept well. The hotel is blessed with exceptional staff. They score 10 out of 10 everywhere - the reception, the bar, the dining room, the bedroom. The breakfast is very enjoyable and had everything I needed. I wasn't blown away by the evening meals. Some item on the plate were hot and some very cold and overall the food wasn't great- maybe just unlucky .l would come back again.

Hotel's Favourite
Stayed only one night here and was pleasantly surprised by the standards for a very reasonable price. The room had a double and a large single bed. It was quite large in size. It was immaculately clean. The breakfast was buffet style. I would definitely stay here again

We went to the Claregalway Hotel on 23/12 to try out their new afternoon tea. It was, honest to God, amazing. Such good value, such lovely food and especially such great service. It's a really unique Afternoon Tea, not the usual fancy cucumber sandwiches and smoked salmon but mini burgers, spicy chicken wraps (soo nice!) and steak sandwiches as well as piles of delicious desserts. I had brought my Dad and was worried he wouldn't like it because he doesn't like fussy things but even he was really impressed and we were all stuffed by the time we left. We even bought several vouchers as Christmas presents. Thank you very much to our server Michael who was great and serious compliments to the chef Lazlo. Only thing I would say to the hotel is that the actual menu should be advertised because I think loads of people would go for it if they knew it was such "proper" food.

We had a family meal out on the Terrace last night. I was really impressed with the outdoor/indoor experience and felt very safe (covid-19) in this restaurant. The Christmas menu was fantastic, something for everyone, great portions and very reasonable. But what made me really want to write this review was the way the staff worked so quickly under the 90min time allowance due to covid-19. We had the table from 8.30 and the girl looking after us worked very quickly to get our orders out to us. We had all three courses and nothing was a problem for this girl. I am really sorry that I didn't get her name ( blonde hair in a ponytail) So thank you very much to all the staff working out on the Terrace area for a very nice evening considering all the restrictions due to the pandemic. I can highly recommend the Claregalway Hotel and the Terrace area for a meal in these strange times. A. Mac Dermott

Right next to a Centra, chipper, hairdresser and charity shop .... so you can shop without even moving the car ! Big car park at the rear of the hotel. Fitness centre and pool in complex. Cheerful, friendly reception staff.
