Recent guest reviews

This hotel is flawless, we spent two nights here. On arrival we were welcomed by Ashling at the front desk, such a warm and helpful service. Our room was exceptional, very clean and comfortable. We were planning a trip to the Cliffs of Moher on Saturday and once again Ashling was on the desk and gave us great advice for other spots to visit when travelling to Clare. The breakfast service was amazing such a selection for all needs.

I just been to Galway and stay at clybaun hotel a beautiful hotel to celebrate our wedding anniversary pity there is no wine is a joke only lol it was excellent hotel love the huge room and very clean, the foods are the best iris breakfast ever the first time I have omelette cook by chief Carlos unbelievable amazing and excellent food . A big thank you to the team. I would like to comeback again and stay one day and recommended to our friends and anybody to stay in this hotel.

Had a great stay at this hotel. Had stayed here about 7 years ago but hotel has been renovated really nicely since then. Lovely restaurant and bar. Food very good. Nice athmosphere. Staff very friendly especially in restaurant. Would def recommend.

Quite a corporate hotel. Staff welcoming. Location is out of the bustle of Galway centre so no great views as in more built up area. Rooms have all you need. The bistro is handy. Great for business trips.

This is a very nice refurbished hotel with a relaxed feel to it. It has a good pool along with an outdoor plunge pool which looks great. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the staff are very friendly. The breakfast is really, really good - Do not miss it.

Discovered this lovely bar in the Clybaun Hotel, a comfortable spot for lunch offering a variety of seating in or away from the crowd. Service was prompt and friendly. The lunch menu offered hot and cold meals at reasonable prices. The bread and butter pudding €5.95 was delicious! Great coffee too. The bathrooms are huge and clean. All accessible with plenty of room. Plenty of parking outside the door. The grand piano in the foyer is a nice touch. Good to see a defibrillator on the wall by the front door. The kids checkin with steps up is cute too! Nice place!

Our family of 3 children and 2 adults had a fantastic stay at the Clybaun hotel. The hotel is beautifully decorated and so clean. The staff were always so obliging and kind. Ann at reception couldnt have been more helpful. My kids aged 4,6and 10 had a fantastic time at the make and do workshop with a different Ann in the hotel from 11-1 daily- she was so patient and had fabulous ideas and lots of resources the kids could use to make their master pieces. The pool is a great size and a smaller pool for young kids is there too. We had a wonderful easter break at the Clybaun - one of the best in Ireland. Thanks so much.

Great hotel , staff were brilliant especially Aoife .. really enjoyed it and would be happy to recommend it for family trips or friends getaway for few days. Really clean and great food in bistro. Kids loved the pool. Few mins drive to Salthill.:

Had such an amazing stay in the clybaun. The room was huge and very clean. Stayed for two nights and had dinner in the bar on our first night, food was lovely, I had the chicken burger. What made it though was our waitress aoife, she was so attentive and friendly. She was great craic and Very welcoming, it felt like we were regulars on our first night there. Would definitely stay again.

We stayed here for a few days during Easter holidays. We received a warm welcome on arrival and there was a children's check in desk too which was a nice touch. My 4 year old daughter receives a little gift which was much appreciated. Our room was warm and clean. As it was evening and we were a bit tired from the drive , we decided to get room service. This was very disappointing, I had a toasted sandwich which looked like it had been dropped or been sitting out all day then thrown on the toaster, it was barely toasted, chips also seemed like they had been reheated. We rang down and sandwich was replaced. The next day we went to use the pool. It was absolutely freezing, not only was water cold but the route in and out of the pool was extremely cold. The doors entering the gym were left open and the cold air blasted in as you walked into pool area. It was so cold and uncomfortable that we didn't use it again on our stay. The children's activities advertised in foyer were not supervised, movie was just a conference room with small projector playing a DVD, no staff were present or involved.
