Fantastic visit! Very clean but busy, has over 300 rooms and holds over 1000 people so never quiet in reception! No noise at night though, very good leisure centre, breakfast was busy with queues but worth it, would recommend staying here!

I stayed in the hotel last weekend with my sister for the Connacht V Leinster rugby match in the Sportsground. From the minute you walked in the door the staff were exceptionally helpful. We went to check in and were greeted by Niamh who gave us a warm welcome. No request was too much for her. The room was stunning,...

The labyrinthine "design" of the hotel made finding the room, which was adequate, over complicated. Sleep was intermittent as the corridor was filled with multiple groups whose screeching, loud conversation...

We stayed at the Connacht Hotel for 3 nights over the Easter break, 2 Adults and 3 children. We were given a wheelchair accessible room which i was a bit disappointed with but having spent 3 nights there it did its job and worked out fine for us. We ate at the hotel as it was included in our package...

I stayed at this hotel twice over the last ten months, for four days in July 2016 and most recently for a week earlier this month. I stayed in one of the rooms back in July and in a mini apartment this month, both times in the D wing which seems like a fairly long way away from the main...

This was probably the nicest hotel I've ever stayed in. The whole hotel is beautiful. Fast taxi service also . The food was outstanding and the staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome. The room was so comfortable cannot fault one thing wrong. Had a great weekend at this hotel would 100% stay again.

I was traveling with a high school rugby team from the USA (roughly 30 people) and The Connacht Hotel was perfect. The rooms were ideal. Most importantly, I give the service a 5 star rating. Anybody who has traveled with a large group knows that your itinerary can be fluid and things change every day. The Connacht Hotel and staff...

Stayed at the hotel recently for a Hen Party. The location is great as it's only a few minutes drive to city centre. There were taxis outside the hotel and staff were more than happy to help ordering taxis for a larger group. Taxi price was very reasonable able. We also had dinner in the hotel, food was lovely and...
