    Pretty Nice

    by (3 reviews) Covington , United States Flag of United States

    The Hotel was nice but they have wedding receptions right in the lobby so when you are trying to go in and out we had to walk through the reception. The hats were beautiful that the ladies wore. They had a really nice bar and band on the last two nights was really fun. They did a lot of Neil Diamond and Frank Sinatra, Elvis and the Monkee's.

    We went to the Cliffs of Mohre and it was pouring down rain. It was very foggy as well. The last time I was here they were foggy too. I got a few pictures with my phone but didn't want to risk my camera.

    We stopped at Connemara which is famous for their Green Marble. I ended up getting a beautiful bracelet of all the different marbles from Ireland at one of the only jeweler that make jewelry from this marble.

    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.

    Thursday September 10th we went to the Rock of Cashel in the morning on our way to Galway. The last time I was here I went there but was too late to take the Tour.

    We got to the Salthill Hotel which is across from the Salthill Bay. The hotel was nice but they have a lot of weddings and the receptions are in the lobby so all of the people …

    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 …

    ... our way back to the hostel. We have a toy meerkat each that we were gifted on our recent tour of Scotland and have much fun taking amusing pictures of them in various positions at the multiple pubs we stop at. We end at a pub called The Merry Fiddler where we end up having a right laugh with the bar staff and the locals. We have a few drinks (a free shot each) and a game of pool before heading to the hostel to check into our room (via dominos for dinner!)  We go ...

    The next day started early. Very early… We had to be at our meeting point to catch our tour van at 6:50 am. The three of us made it to our van where we met Bud. His opening line was (in his Irish accent), "Hi guys. My name is Bud, like Budweiser. But I'm no wiser today than I was yesterday." From there we knew it was going to be a good day. We all were informed to sleep until the first stop since it was so early, so of course ...
