Reviewed yesterday NEW

Have been pretty much apart of daily life in the Connacht for the last six months while attending a course there. In general everything is very good. Staff are very polite, Rooms are clean & tidy and the gym facilities in fairness are right up there. My only and major gripe is the restaurant. A walking disaster ! . I...

Nice family suites, you can't cook in them. We had 2 rooms, ideal for a family. The leisure centre is nice. Food and service in the restaurant just ok. A good base, lots of places to eat in Galway city. Such a friendly city.

From my tormenting reservations with questions to checkout this was another great stay. A special mention to staff working in kids club, very professional and reassuring. Just docked marks as the bar service on the Saturday night was not great, left waiting and looked over a few times until we had to draw attention to ourselves. Other than that great...

I stayed in The Connacht for one night for business purposes. It's a large, fairly modern hotel on the outskirts of Galway and when I was there it seemed quite busy. Pros: staff were very friendly and helpful, the mid-week room rate was very reasonable, the room was nice, and the pool (although a bit crowded) was fine. Reasonable gluten-free...

I stayed here this week for one night on business. For me the hotel is an 'average' experience, massive and busy operation with lots of rooms. The main difficulty I had, which I accept, may not be a problem for others, was the noise in the hotel. The first room I went to was near a generator so I asked...

Looking for a base in Galway with the kids, the pool and the kids club were the attracting items (watch out though, kids club carries a charge per child, per session). The room was tiny, only had a double and single bed so one of our younglings had to stay on a pull out bed. That mattress had to be...
