Taking a few tips from Estate Agents photos

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 8, 2004

The Galway Bay hotel is a perfectly competent if uninspiring four-star hotel. Well beloved of wedding parties with appropriately enough wedding-cake style architecture of the hotel, most rooms faces out to the bay.

The hotel is however situated in Salthill, the seaside suburb of Galway which owes more than a little to the kiss-me-quick, candyfloss, cheap B & B culture of English seaside resorts like Skegness and Blackpool. Most unsightly of all, right next to the hotel (and strangely they don?t show this on photographs) a motley collection of fairground rides called Leisureland.

Traditional Irish cottages no-one knows about

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 12, 2003

This Irish thatched cottage is right on the water, so we got our feet wet. Its on a dead end road with just farmers on either side - and they were a bit away. Grass on either side. The cottage is 300 years old with a turf burning stove. Its been updated a bit but is the real thing. Galway is 20 minutes away. All in all the sheer volume of history is enough to quieten the wildest mind. Great walks! The burren, the entire west. Loved it!

Unique Quality: THe view out to the sea is outstanding, but we spent most of our time inside warming to the fire and drinking Irish coffees (!).
Good selection of books and though the place is old, it had all we needed. People are friendly but they give you space. Rarely have I been to a place with such a swift change of pace. Refreshing/.

Directions: Take a left towards the sea from Clarenbridge to Cave. Ask at the post office how to get to Cave.
