Location


Stylish, iconic, sophisticated—our hotel in Galway city centre overlooking Lough Atalia is the ideal place to stay

Known for the lovely Galway Bay, the ancient Gaelic language and the endearing Claddagh ring, Galway is a place that has brought its rich history into its bright future. Explore the shores of Lough Atalia and Galway Bay as well as the fast-growing city from our hotel’s position in Galway city centre. Visit nearby Eyre Square for its monuments, beautiful architecture, Quincentennial Fountain and green spaces, and then walk over to the shopping area to discover a variety of boutiques and cafés. After a day of sightseeing, watch the city come alive at night with its collection of pubs, clubs and bars. Practise your swing at one of the golf courses close to the hotel, or venture farther out for a bike ride on the wild Aran Islands or a trip to the charming villages and rugged landscapes of Connemara. Galway is just an hour from Shannon and Knock airports, allowing you to travel from Galway to anywhere in Ireland and beyond.
