Galway, Ireland

Hi...Has anyone stayed at the Galway Great Southern Hotel, The Glenlo Abbey Hotel,or the Ballynahinch Castle Hotel all in Galway? Also, the Bunratty Castle Hotel in the Shannon Region? Would appreciate any information on these hotels. Thanks, Phyllis

My friends stay at the Great Southern whenever they're in Galway. Good location, nice hotel.

I've been to Bunratty Castle, but wasn't aware there was a hotel there. I think you probably have a lot better and cheaper options nearby. There's a B&B about 0.5 miles down the road. Sorry, don't know the name.

Hi Phyllis:

The Galway Great Southern Hotel is wonderful. Try the Oyster Room, which is the main restaurant of the hotel. They specialize in the local seafood. I wish I were there right now. Enjoy.

I agree! The location of the Great Southern is Prime and the service was very good.

I've stayed at Ballynahinch Castle hotel for a couple of days. It was originally more of a manor house than a castle and the hotel include various modern extensions to the original structure. So you'll be disappointed if you're expecting to stay in an old fashioned Norman style castle. Still its a charming, relatively small hotel with a good restaurant and bar. It has wonderful grounds with its own walks and salmon fishing available on the grounds. It is close to Clifden and would make a great base for exploring the surrounding Connemara countryside.
