They are conveniently located within day-tripping distance of Connemara. Their multi-award winning hotel provides the perfect choice of accommodation while traveling in the West of Ireland.

The staff here really want to ensure you have a great stay. I was so pleasantly surprised both by the warm reception, and the large room. Extremely comfortable hotel and very convenient. The fish and chips in the restaurant were so delicious that I actually posted the photo on social media (I never photograph food). 5 minutes walk to Claregalway Friary, which was a very nice spot to visit. There’s also ample parking which is nice. jyo_nyc new york, ny  (TripAdvisor)

Ollies Highlights:

Firstly my bed was huge, high quality and comfortable. My room was very quiet, spacious also the shower was great. I made a reservation in the Tí Cusack’s Cafe Bar and Grill for dinner where I was served a 5 star meal.The Cafe Bar transforms from a relaxing chill out day space to a lively lounge in the evening. The Tí Cusack’s Team gave me a warm welcome, served only the best of wine, great pints and leading spirits in a unique atmosphere; where both locals and guests love to meet and mingle. Their cocktails served by expert Rebecca. are a specialty that you won’t want to miss . I sure didn’t! I’ll be sampling them again for the Galway races!
