Your expert reviewer
There's plenty to do in Galway: see the former medieval city walls, peruse the art galleries of the Latin Quarter or head to a traditional Irish pub and listen to some live folk music.
The hotel is ideally located to explore the city of Galway (15-minute walk) as well as the dramatic Irish coastline.
By plane: Birmingham and Edinburgh to Shannon takes 1 hour 15 minutes; London to Shannon takes 1 hour 30 minutes - after which, a taxi takes an hour. Free on-site parking available. Book flights to Shannon.
CHARACTER & STYLE
You will either love or hate the predominantly pink and purple features of the hotel - the style is certainly unique. We loved the patterned wallpaper and sofas in the signature lounges. There's even a live aqauarium in the reception area, adding another element of interest and intrigue.
We appreciated the recommendations from staff on where to eat and what to visit or see - handy, as we didn't know the area. From a cute café we may have overlooked, to the local pub with live music, their tips made a real difference to our stay.
