Our Stay at The Award Winning 4 Star Galway Bay Hotel in Ireland

Galway bay hotel Ireland

We had such a lovely time in Galway and our wonderful stay at The Galway Bay Hotel made it that much better. The Galway Bay Hotel is an award winning 4 start hotel in Galway, Ireland.  I traveled to Galway with 5 girls from my VGB squad and we had the most amazing stay! The beachfront location makes waking up there a breath of fresh air! We all loved looking out our bedroom window at the incredible views! It’s also 5 minutes from Galway City Centre and directly on Wild Atlantic Way. Galway is amazing so you’re probably not looking for a reason to visit, but it doesn’t hurt that Galway is where Ed Sheeran made his last music video Galway Girl. We have an amazing Ireland playlist on Spotify for your road trip over!

Food + Drink

The Galway Bay Hotel has an award winning Cafe, Bar and Restaurant! There were so many options for food and the VGB squad did not go hungry! We even indulged in a little room service late night! Mmmm! Their breakfast bar was outstanding with all of the options available for a cold or hot breakfast. They offer a traditional Irish breakfast as well and even had Irish Whisky honey available. I was so impressed with the spread.


Whether it is a romantic dinner, a celebration get-together, a meal with the girls or a well-deserved treat, our award winning Lobster Pot Restaurant is guaranteed to delight. Executive Chef, Robert Webster and his team will spoil you with the freshest seafood and local produce, all served with style. For a taste of the sea, try an Irish Lobster fresh from our tank.

A classically Irish bar that’s warm and welcoming… with great draft beers, craft beers and a selection of spirits that is second to none… welcome to our Atlantic Bar. For a tranquil setting with sea views – grab a drink and relax in our Sea-View Lounge that flows out from the bar.
