A beautiful homely comfortable hotel. Felt like home away from home. Room was neat and tidy. Lovely bar / restaurant with good food. Watching the locals is pretty entertaining. Loved the vibe and street view. Would visit again!

There re several good places to stop and this would be a good one too. Galway Bay is a convenient walk from the hotel with lovely views. Make sure they get the lights and heat on to the room several hours before you arrive.
