Breakfast very disorganised-no managerial presence to deal with constant empty juice containers, empty buffet containers etc. There didn’t appear to be a crazy amount of guests staying so it was very frustrating to see this.

It was an absolute pleasure to spend some time off in Claregalway Hotel. The family room was very spacious and of a high standard. Very clean and modern. The staff are very helpful and kind. We were very positively surprised with the high standard of customer service presented in the in-hotel restaurant. The food was amazing and very nicely presented. Would definitely return to this hotel in future! Highly recommended!

Lovely bright large airy family room. Easter Eggs for the kids was a lovely surprise! Personally speaking, the bar/lounge area wasnt as relaxing as I'd hoped, but thats my personal taste. Staff were all lovely, breakfast was good and the pool/jauzzi area was all spotless clean. Perfect spot for heading off to explore

Lovely base to see Galway

Pros: The room was lovely with huge mirror and comfy wide bed.
Cons: Only 2 disabled parking spots, one had a taxi in it, the drop zone full of parked cars so had to park in car park opposite.
Location: Ideally placed to visit nearby Galway and Connemarra which was beautiful. Oh... and The Fureys !!
Found the hotel and staff to be excellent. Food was lovely and very exciting to see the kitchen staff creating the dishes in full view.

Wedding Night

Great night at a friends wedding, staff were so very friendly and the food was fabulous. The room was huge and extremely comfy. Slight issue with our room bill on check-out but it was dealt with by a lovely Receptionist Catherine!
