    We really loved our stay at the Galway Bay Hotel and wished we could have stayed longer than 4 nights!. We most certainly would recommend the hotel to friends and family. We would like to return in the not too distant future for another lovely holiday at the Galway Bay Conference & Leisure Centre.

    Lovely sea view room ..(181) .even if booked on Booked.net !!! the reservations manager was very friendly and efficient , so were the waiters/waitresses either at the restaurant or at the bar . Great choice for breakfast . well situated, not only for Galway itself but also for touring Connemara, weather permitting ... Large free parking places .

    Friendly staff,and all ready to help.

    Break not up to standard for people that wants glunten free. Dinner on sunday evening was very poor as salmon dish did not meet our requirments as the way corrib salmon was advertised. And prices for dinner was very expensive.

    Very good

    We very much enjoyed the rooftop patio and the solarium. Also the breakfast that was included was very nice. The staff were all excellent, Very friendly and knowledgable. If you were traveling with children this would be a perfect hotel. It is right across from the beach and next to an amusement park .

    Our television did not work . We reported it on the first day but it continued to turn off randomly and would not come back on. Finally on the third day of our stay it was fixed at our request . The room was very room and because the window would only open a very little ,due to safety reasons , you could not get much fresh air. we happened to be there on 3 unseasonably warm days but it was quite uncomfortable.

    Enormous Hotel room. Exceptionally friendly and helpful staff. Outstanding view overlooking the Galway Bay. Fantastic facilities. Will definitely like to stay there again. Enjoyed seeing Pingu the Penguin at breakfast every day. A lady member of staff dressed as Pingu to entertain kids/families.
