WHAT WE LOVE...

Conveniently located for guests to combine a city break with some of Ireland's most stunning coastal vistas, this hotel has a decent spa ensuring relaxation after a day walking by the sea or shopping in the nearby retail park - or a night spent in the quaint local pubs. The staff are genuinely welcoming and the food is of a good standard, particularly the Geo restaurant which prides itself on using local fare, from seafood to cattle. The rooms are comfortable and chic and the whole hotel has a unique, elegant - if not quirky - design flare; expect pink hues and glistening mirrors.

THE DETAILS

Location

The closeness of the Wild Atlantic Way creates a definite holiday feeling.

It's a 15-minute walk to Galway city centre; see the medieval walls, view art in the galleries or join the fun in a traditional Irish pub.
By plane: flights from Birmingham and Edinburgh take 1 hour 15 minutes, and 1 hour 30 minutes from London to Shannon. It's less than an hour's drive to the hotel. Free parking on-site. skyscanner.net

Food & Drink

If the hotel runs the dinner and movie package during your stay, it's a fun thing to do: a meal in their signature lounge, followed by a film in nearby EYE cinema. The McGeough Sausage Bap for brunch is a good shout - local meat and cheese ingredients tucked into a toasted brioche bun.

GEO: formal dining, locally sourced produce. Dishes include monkfish wellington and chateaubriand. All-day dining, open daily.
