About The Connacht

Perfectly positioned on Ireland's West coast, less than three kilometres from Eyre Square in the city centre is The Connacht, a modern family-friendly hotel with a stunning indoor swimming pool and world-class fitness centre.

Plush beds, crispy white linen, a tea/coffee tray, and a trouser press are just some of the luxurious in-room amenities featured. Apartments add fully equipped kitchens and spacious living areas.

Kids are well looked after at the kids club for a surcharge. The 24/7 leisure centre features a full-service spa, relaxing hot tub, and a steam room. Those arriving by car will find free on-site parking available.

A host of dining options exist at The Connacht, including Ruben's for an Irish breakfast and fresh local cuisine for lunch and dinner, and Bar Solo for tea, scones and a selection of wines and speciality cocktails.

Worth a visit is Black Cat Gallery, a 15-minute drive from The Connacht which is in the same vicinity as the beautiful Nicholas' Collegiate Church.

Positive Reviews

The very best staff

Visitors think the staff at this hotel must be some of the best there is. They are said to be very pleasant and helpful, always sorting out issues no matter how big or small in the shortest possible time. The service levels and high degree of hospitality is also greatly appreciated by all.

Amazing leisure centre

Reviews suggest the leisure centre is a great way to fully unwind and relax. Guests often spend a large proportion of their time with the entire family enjoying everything that's on offer here, especially the hot tub and awesome indoor swimming pool.

Delicious in-house dining

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner is scrumptious according to guests. They find the atmosphere and service levels are just as good, and more often than not they end up returning for meals time and again throughout the stay.

Negative Reviews

Gets noisy sometimes

Since it's a large family-friendly hotel, guests are often disturbed by others making a bit of a racket in the hallways. They feel there is quite a lot of improvement needed when it comes to soundproofing the rooms.

No individual air-conditioning

Travellers are astounded at the lack of individual temperature control in the rooms. They often complain about being uncomfortably warm, and think that they should be able to set their own temperature in a hotel of this stature.
