This beautifully located hotel is an attractive building which makes the best possible use of the site without intruding on the surroundings: set on the sea side of the road, in its own extensive grounds, it is hard to credit that Galway city is only a 15 minute drive away.

Connemara Coast Hotel

This beautifully located hotel is an attractive building which makes the best possible use of the site without intruding on the surroundings: set on the sea side of the road, in its own extensive grounds, it is hard to credit that Galway city is only a 15 minute drive away. An impressive foyer decorated with fresh flowers sets the tone on entering, and spacious public areas include a mezzanine and library, and a pleasant patio area on the sea side of the hotel.


Facilities include an atmospheric bar, two restaurants, a children’s playroom (and playground) and a leisure centre - and a policy of constant refurbishment and upgrading ensures a warm, well-cared for atmosphere. Accommodation is of a high standard - the original rooms have all been upgraded, and the newer ones are very spacious.


This likeable hotel is understandably popular for conferences and weddings - the facilities and service are both excellent (the conference centre has also been refurbished), and the location is magic.


A range of special breaks is offered both here and at its fine sister property, Brooks Hotel, in Dublin (details on application).


Conference/banqueting (400/300); free broadband wi/fi; secretarial services, video conferencing. Children welcome (under 3s free in parents' room; cots available without charge, baby sitting arranged; playroom, playground, kids club). Leisure centre (swimming pool, jacuzzi, fitness room, sauna, steam room); masseuse; pool table, tennis, walking.


Rooms 141 (2 suites, 10 junior suites, 26 executive rooms, 7 ground floor, 25 family rooms, 1 for disabled, all no smoking). B&B frlom about €65pps, ss from €25. 24 hr room service.


Restaurant:


Welcoming details such as proper butter curls and good nutty breads make a good first impression in this elegantly appointed sea view restaurant.


Appealing menus are changed every day (a boon for regular diners and guests staying for several nights). Menus offer a wide range of dishes, notably local seafood, while local meats are often represented by roast rack of Connemara lamb.

Gallery Restaurant: Seats 120; D 7-9.30pm daily; set D around €40; children welcome (high chair, childrens menu, baby changing facilities), informal D, Daly's 7-9.30pm daily; bar food daily 12-9pm (1-4 Sat/Sun). Open all year. Amex, MasterCard, Visa, Laser. Heli-Pad. abbreviations
