    Nice Hotel on Galway Bay

    We stayed at the Salthill Hotel for three nights while staying in Galway and had a nice stay. All the staff were friendly and we had a beautiful view of the promenade and Galway Bay from our room. The beds were big and comfortable and the bathroom was very nice - especially the shower. And the hotel is in a real nice location - short drive or moderate walk to downtown Galway and Salthill is right across the street. We didn't eat at the bar, but had breakfast at the hotel and it was pretty good for the price. The only bad thing about our stay was really out of the hotel's control and they did their best to rectify the situation. The last night we were there, they had a large wedding reception and being Ireland, lots of drinking. The drunk people weren't really an issue, until some idiot decided to smoke a cigarette in a room at 2 in the morning and set off the fire alarm. Not only did we get woken up at 2, this caused the elevators to go down, a big issue for us since we needed to check out bright and early in the morning. Fortunately, the gentleman at the reception desk was apologetic and willing to help us out. He got all of our luggage and brought it down on the service elevator, called us a cab that was waiting when we were ready to go, and even offered us some free dry breakfast (coffee, juice, cereals, etc.) before they started serving the full breakfast. While we were a little grumpy about the whole situation, we appreciated the staff doing what they could to take care of us. Overall, we had a nice stay and would stay here again the next time we visit Galway.

    Beautiful property in Galway. We had an ocean view room which was quite spacious. The check-in process went quickly and smoothly, staff was friendly and efficient. The room and bathroom were very clean and the wifi worked well. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Galway.

    Galway. Our hotel is on the "Prom", a little past the heart of the city. Salthill. When we arrived Sunday night, we needed dinner and went into the city looking for "The Pie Maker". We found it located in a charming area of medieval shops and lanes and decided to return there to shop in the morning. We had hoped to visit the Aran Isles, but didn't …

    Thursday morning, Sandy still wasn’t feeling great, so she stayed and rested at the hotel, while the rest of us went on the Connemara and Cong Tour with Galway Tour Company again. We were picked up at our hotel, and after picking up other guests, our tour guide Ken dropped off those who were doing Cliffs of Moher at the coach station and the …

    ... while sitting in the hot sun was a bit more challenging.. Lovely scenic boat ride to the base of the Cliffs of Moher we had been atop the previous day. Wow, what a sight, this time close up to the millions of noisy birds both on the water in flocks and crowding every ledge you could see. Mostly guillemot varieties and Ted saw one group of puffins fly off, he being our resident puffin expert, having spent a day in Scotland's Treshnish Isles. Back in ...

    ... a Beamish, 1.5 euros for a bottle of Karpacki (gross).

    As suspected sleeping was interesting. I am so glad we had the room to ourselves. With 9 ppl in beds and two on camper beds it was a full room and took about an additional hour to get to sleep b/c its near impossible to not talk. Also, even though there were quiet hours you could hear when other ppl got back to the hostel (not so quiet)---not a fan of the French.

    Bought my ticket for the Croagh Patrick trip—hiking to the top on October 9th! Went to my first formal Service Learning for Literacy lecture, I am SO excited for this course. The professor is from England and seems great. His lecture was interesting and he truly seems dedicated to the course. This week we are working on trying to find our volunteer placement in a local homework club (which he mentioned could be difficult since the people ...
