Magical piece of Ireland
Having been seduced by the song about Galway Bay, many years ago, our expectations were high. They were met and surpassed by the Galway Bay Hotel, helped by the spectacular, and rarely seen it seems, sunny weather. The hotel is a combination of traditional looks with modern amenities, and friendly staff, who went out of their way to make our stay the best it could be in Galway Bay. Don’t expect fine French cuisine, as that would be out of character with the hearty, healthy and wholly Irish atmosphere the hotel exudes. We went all out and upgraded to the Atlantic Suite, so our stay was coloured by that extra bit of luxury this brings, but regardless, every guest was treated so well that there were smiles all around.

Great hotel and location

Good 6.0
Young inexperienced staff
Check in & out was perfect. The hotel room was very clean and comfortable. We decided to eat in the hotel bar, which was a so disappointing. The service was slow, the mains arrived before our starter and they were incorrect. The hotel manager did address the suitation and provided a complimentary drink as a result. In my opinion there were alot of young and inexperienced staff working in this hotel. They were tripping over each other in the bar area but did seem to have any interest in clearing tables or sweeping under the tables. Breakfast was the same way and the food at breakfast was only average.
