While only a 3 star property, we weren't expecting a luxury hotel; however, the Carna Bay was well below what I would consider acceptable standards. The hotel has a musty odor to it once you walk in. During our stay, I think we may have been the only ones there. The rooms were very basic and after settling in we...

I stayed in the Carna Bay Hotel for one month and couldn't have been happier with the time I spent there. There is a lovely relaxing atmosphere in the place which is cultivated by the surrounding scenery, the very friendly and personable staff, the layout and the comfortable seating in the bar/restaurant. The wifi is fast and functions perfectly which...

Stayed here during summer 2013 was not expecting anything too spectacular or luxurious but the standard of this hotel was poor by any standard. I cannot understand why this place has so many good reviews!! Our family room was tiny and depressing, the walls were covered in dirty stains, the bed covers looked dirty and soiled and it smelled musty,...

Just returned from a hillwaking trip to Connemara; I do this on a yearly basis, and always choose this hotel as my base. I have nothing but praise for this small, family run hotel - everything is spot on, from the rooms, to the food, to the friendliness and warmth of the owners and staff, to the location, and value...

Stayed here with my mother and my little dog. A few people expressed joy at the fact that they could have brought their own dog, saying next time they would! As long as you keep your dog in a crate/ floor bed i.e. not in their beds, all is well. Ideal place for walking, beautiful beaches and such lovely friendly...

We booked this hotel on hotels.com and went B&B. We had never been to this side of Ireland and needless to say, it is a long way from anything. If you are looking to relax and get away from it all, this is the place to go to. Great family run hotel. Mary the owner went out of her way...

A real find in the heart of connemara. Excellent service and a homly atmosphere. Excellent food especially fish of the day. One sign of this being an excellent hotel was how the service and quality did not change when hotel filled up at weekend for TV programme recording. Sunset over Carna harbour was magnificent. Only a short 1km detour off...

This hotel was ideally placed for the area of Galway we wanted to explore. Some members of staff went out of their way to see that we had all that we needed and did their very best to ensure we enjoyed our stay - which we did. A special thank you to Patricia and also, the cheerful young man serving...
