Middle aged lady - still holding together, just.

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 1, 2008

Reminding me of one of those 'more unusual' lonely hearts ads, the Ardilaun still has a certain something about it. It does however look as if it has been around the block a couple of times and therefore needs very regular maintenance to keep it looking presentable. To extend this tenuous analogy, it can also be said that rather like some ladies of a certain age, it's dress sense leaves something to be desired. The fabics that have been choosen are all costly enough with custom-made carpets and swaggering curtain trims, but little seems to match. The overall affect is one of confusion - a place that has lost it's way a little.

Despite all this, the place still does what it is suposed to do. The rooms are presentably 3/4 star, the kitchens knock out good-ish food, and the spa/health club is fine. It has well-kept grounds and helpful / friendly staff.

The hotel is something of a bastion of the local community, hosting rotary clubs, weddings and business functions. It's main trade seems to come from upmarket (in terms of cost anyway) American tour groups and Insurance companies training their latest intake of hopefuls.

Nice car park.

Directions: follow the signs to taylor's hill, above salthill seafront

Ardilaun Hotel Galway

by written on June 3, 2003

Its not the cheapest but probably one of Galways best Hotels with a great leisure centre. Probably the best thing about the Ardilaun Hotel is its location about 5 mins walk from Galway city centre. However the grounds are quite large so its very peaceful and you have the impression you are out in the country. Great place to get away

Unique Quality: Old landlords townhouse - used to beloing to the familiy of Lady Gregory.
Pool, gym, snooker room and geat rooms

Directions: West of the city - Taylors Hill on the road leading to Spiddal and connemara
