“Great Hotel, Central Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2012

We recently stayed for two nights over the weekend. The room was lovely, bright, clean and spacious. The pool and steamroom were lovely.

There was no noise and the hotel is just a few minutes walk from Eyre Square.

I have no complaints after our stay in the hotel but would advise anyone staying there to get down early for breakfast on the sunday morning as there was not sufficient space in the dinningroom and we were put in the lounge bar of the bar instead.

Stayed at the Radisson, Galway for 2 nights at the end of Feb/start of March 2012 and very much enjoyed it. We were look after very well on arrival by Charlene who was very helpful with our room as we had a small baby with us. She organised a spacious room for us and was very obliging. To her credit, nothing was too much trouble and that seemed to be the way for all of the staff.

The hotel is in a nice quiet spot just behind the bus station and looks over the water with easy walking distance of the town centre. The staff were very friendly and obliging. We ate in the bar and found the food to be very good and that atmosphere very relaxing. Breakfast buffet was also excellent.

It's a clean, sleek, modern hotel with a high level of customer service and top class facilities.

Dear Guest,

It’s wonderful to hear that you had such a relaxing time with us at spirit one fitness & leisure. The sauna, steam rooms, 18m pool and outdoor hot-tub are so relaxing and we think, are the perfect way to enjoy any weekend. I am glad you feel the same!

Thank you for sharing with us.

Warm Regards,
Jennifer O'Grady

Stayed on a Saturday night in this hotel. I had stayed before and have never been disappointed. The rooms are lovely and for a city centre hotel you can get a room with a view of the bay at no extra cost. It is within walking distance of Eyre Square, bus/train station, shop street, the cathedral and the Galway Weir. The beds are really comfortable and rooms are a good size. The restaurant is lovely too. Check in and out was quick and friendly. There is car parking at 5euro per stay. Dont forget to get your ticket validated at reception for the car park. Buffet breakfast is just delicious with so much choice..... and at the weekend is available up until 11am.

Room Tip: ask for a room with a view over the bay

The Radisson Blu is a clean, modern hotel 2 minutes from the train and bus station and 10 minutes from the Quay St. pedestrian mall. The rooms are spacious and well-appointed. The buffet breakfasts are sumptuous with almost everything you could want from fruit and cereals to full Irish. They will even prepare eggs for you to your liking. Try to get a B&B rate so breakfast is included, a bit pricey if you are paying for it separately. The only downside to the Radisson is the lobby and bar. The lobby is not conducive to sitting and chatting or receiving guests and the bar is over-crowded and has poor lighting. Service is great, the staff will go out of their way to get you directions, answer questions or respond to requests. I have stayed before and will stay again.
