This is a great place to stay, all staff are very friendly, polite and helpful. The receptionist checked me in and said that unfortunately the kitchen had just closed at 8pm and i had just missed the food, but she offered to make me a sandwich, which I declined as I wanted something more substantial. She then looked up some take aways for me and I then ate in my room after ordering a "Just Eat Takeaway Meal". I stayed a second night and had a breakfast and an evening meal, The food in the hotel is fantastic, as is the cleanliness of the hotel and bedrooms. I will continue to use this hotel for my business trips. Great place to stay and I can't emphasise enough how pleasant and helpful that the staff are.

Just back from another wonderful stay with ard ri. The staff are just fantastic - especially Adrian and Liam. They are incredible at what they do. The room itself was absolutley spotless and cleaned so thoroughly every day. The family room is very comfortable and roomy. We ate 3 out of the 4 nights in the bar. Delicious dinners at a great price. Started each day with a huge breakfast. We chatted briefly with the general manager who was so lovely and great with the kids. We always stay here when in Tuam - it's a fantastic base for travel. We will see ye again in the future and many thanks for your wonderful hospitality. We hope you have a great summer season ahead of you. All the best

After finishing up for Christmas me and my colleges from @lovelightireland decided to pay a visit to the Ard Ri House Hotel for lunch, this was something we had not done for a long time due to COVID restrictions. When we arrived we were greeted by a lovely friendly lady who brought us over to the table and explained that the Carvery was just about to start, the Carvery was lovely and fresh with generous portions and was great value for money, overall the staff were friendly and the place was spotless, the Hotel was busy enough on the day but you never felt threatened in any way as the tables were well separated and everyone was COVID compliant, after the meal we had a couple of relaxing drinks before heading home. I would have no hesitation in visiting the Ard Ri again in the future and would recommend it to anyone.
