We loved our stay, the location was perfect, car parking was free, the room we had was great for us, views to the shops and cafe's but still quiet in the room, on our first night we ate in the adjoining restaurant-The Black Cat, very friendly and good food (Tapas). In the morning we had breakfast at Lohan's, opposite the hotel, during the day we went shopping in Galway and visited the museum in the evening we went to our friends 40th party in Oslo's bar just over the road. On Sunday we travelled back to Dublin to visit the Guinness Storehouse and do more shopping at the Jervis Centre, followed by lunch at "The Church" before making our way back to the Airport. We have had a lovely 3 days in Galway, it was our first visit and we are planning to go back and do more touring around Ireland. Lastly I would also like to say that Peter the Hotel Manager is absolutely fantastic and he went the extra mile to make our stay extremely enjoyable.....he's Australian and the best and I know as I have stayed in hundreds of Hotels.
