The G hotel is the only 5 star hotel in Galway and is located in Lough Atalia, as you come into the city, so a 5-minute drive to the center or a 15-minute walk. The hotel has become the place to be seen for the residents of Galway which brings a great atmosphere to the bar and restaurant.

The glass-fronted hotel is fabulously designed by Philip Treacy with high ceilings, pink and purple hallways and brightly colored dining areas and furnishings. It's fun, contemporary and has a lovely relaxed atmosphere with lots of comfortable armchairs and sofas in which to relax with a drink.

Although the main hotel is colorfully decorated, the rooms have been designed with pale, neutral colors. The beds are incredibly comfortable, the rooms are spacious and light with big windows. The bathrooms have baths and separate showers and all amenities you may need.

The spa is excellent with a fitness center, a thermal suite that includes a vitality pool with water therapy jets, a crystal steam room, a rock sauna and ice fountain, several treatments rooms and heated loungers.

There are three signature lounges at The G where meals and drinks can be taken; the Grand Salon which has high ceilings and pale colors, the pink lady's lounge and the blue gentleman's lounge. The food is international cuisine and the breakfast is very good indeed!

Location & Directions

Galway, Ireland

Located on the West coast of Ireland, directly parallel to Dublin.

When to go

It is very difficult to predict the weather in Ireland - in the summer from May to late September is generally seen as the most pleasant time to visit. Rainfall is difficult to predict - but Ireland does not receive as much as many are led to believe! In the winters, temperatures do fall, but there is nothing better than finding a remote pub with a roaring fire to sit beside after a long walk in the country.
