A restored 18th-century mansion set in extensive grounds, Glenlo Abbey Hotel is within close proximity to Galway city yet has an exclusive air of seclusion. The hotel has characterful historic touches throughout and an array of dining options and activities on offer.
Park House Hotel
Convivial hospitality, an atmospheric bar and a central location make Park House a great value option in the heart of Galway. The hotel is centrally located close to Eyre Square, Galway's main commercial hub, and just a short walk from the city's vibrant pedestrian streets dotted with cafes, shops and pubs.
It's a popular spot with locals and consequently has a vibrant atmosphere with a casual, living room-styled reception area and two lively dining options. Despite this, rooms are quiet and comfortable featuring cheerful tones, natural wood furnishings and goose down duvets.
The Park House Restaurant serves classic French cuisine with a contemporary Irish twist, while relaxed Boss Doyle’s Bar offers lighter fare and an extensive drink menu.
