g Hotel & Spa, Galway, Ireland
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.
Your expert reviewer
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
Style & Character
There is a definitive romantic ambience at the hotel which leans towards being couple friendly - but certainly solo travellers will enjoy the atmosphere too. The ample mirrors and retro glassware leave rooms gleaming.

We loved the Lake View Suite overlooking Lough Atalia and Galway city's skyline - you can't help but to feel entwined with the beautiful location. The smart Vileroy & Boch standalone bathtub beckons you to relax in total comfort.

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.
