If you're going to Galway, stay in this lovely hotel! It's close enough to town to be able to get there easily, and the location and views are beautiful! We had a lake view room which was well worth the price. The staff was always available and accommodating with great recommendations for dinners, tours, etc. A perk - the breakfast...
