We stopped by for lunch recently - there were 7 of us in total (two families) and we found a very comfortable table in the bar. There was a wide selection of food for adults and kids, and the quality was excellent. But the thing that really distinguished the Merriman was the excellent staff. I don't think I've ever come...

Stayed here with a group of friends recently and had an enjoyable time. The rooms were a good size, clean and comfortable. We had dinner in the bar on the second night of our trip, the salmon with vierge sauce was delicious, we were all impressed with the food quality and regretted not having eaten there on the first night...

I stayed here for a friends 40th birthday in Jan 2017. We got what we paid for; in that it was cheap and the standard of the hotel was basic. This is all we wanted so it suited us. I have no issues with that. However, on arriving home the following the day, after staying in The Merriman, I noticed...

But a very pretty town with a...

I visited here with my spouse and some friends for a hillwalking weekend in November 2016 and was not disappointed. The hotel seemed to be fully booked in the middle of winter. The food was also surprisingly good for a hotel and we ate there for both nights of our visit.

Home away from home. Not an overly modern hotel but extremely cosy and welcoming. Staff are more than friendly and helpful and myself and my partner had such an enjoyable stay in this hotel. Rooms very cosy also and hotel isnt a million miles away from Galway city either and Kinvarra is a beautiful place on a dry day. Great...

Very tidy and clean Pub in a traditional style, well suited to Visitors took my for a reasonably priced meal, staff were great, very welcoming compared to other pubs in town. Hotel section looked charming although we stayed up the road at Kinvara Guest House. Town itself is a little tired with the main road running through dominating the streetscape
