Great staff
Staff were always friendly, courteous and helpful. Our only complaint is no fault of the hotel. Drunk and loud wedding guests in the hallway and outside. Only occurred on Friday night, one night of our four night say. We will definitely stay here again on future trips to Galway. I should also mention breakfast was wonderful, great coffee and sausages.

Lovely spot in Galway
This is a great place to stay in Galway. Spacious, gracious, and comfortable. I chose this hotel because of the fabulous swimming pool, great for laps, and the hot tub. There is a lovely "fairy garden" behind the hotel. The only drawback is it's a couple miles from town, which is a very long walk or cab ride of about 12-14 Euros. No Uber in Galway. If your reservation includes breakfast, you will get a hot Irish breakfast with all the trimmings.

Beautiful, *old* hotel
I liked that even though the hotel is ancient, the bathroom in the suite has been fully updated with clean, HUGE bath tubs and fancy showers. The bed was quite uncomfortable for my husband and I, but the staff and service was wonderful. I would recommend everyone who chooses to stay at the Ardilaun Hotel to avoid going to the hotel restaurant, unless you have a couple hours to kill eating overpriced, bad food and getting terrible service... we sat around waiting to be served for hours, and it was simply disappointing to say the least.

Galway is simply magic. The Ardilaun is a luxury resort for an affordable price. Excellent sauna and steam room. Laundry service also good. Short walk to the Bay and the Latin Quarter. Highlight of my trip.
