One of the hottest destinations this summer, Galway has it all, and to up the stylish staycation factor – The Hardiman hotel on Eyre Square has a great value ‘Sweet Summer Stay’ package for mid-week dates in May.
Set in the heart of Eyre Square, and graciously hosting guests since 1852, The Hardiman combines Victorian elegance and opulent luxury with a genuine friendly welcome.
The ‘Sweet Summer Stay’ is a 2-night break, with breakfast each morning and one dinner in the hotel’s charming Gaslight Brasserie, overlooking the bustling Eyre Square. A snipe of Prosecco and a bowl of fresh strawberries will greet guests on arrival, and the concierge team is armed with helpful advice for great daytrips and relaxing local treats!
The unique medieval city is home to major arts and food festivals, traditional music and pub culture, and weekend markets. It is also a perfect base for visiting Salthill Promenade, the Burren, the Aran Islands, the Cliffs of Moher and the wild beauty spots of Connemara.
Galway’s vibrant food scene spans pubs to Michelin-starred restaurants, and guests at The Hardiman can dine-in style at the Hotel’s popular Gaslight Brasserie, stylish Oyster Bar, or relaxed Parlour Lounge. Fresh seafood is a speciality, thanks to the city’s location between the River Corrib and beautiful Galway Bay on the wild Atlantic coastline.
Travel awards abound for the City of Tribes, which was European Capital of Culture in 2020. Galway was voted Europe’s friendliest city in the Condé Nast Traveller Reader Travel Awards in 2020, the same year Galway City Museum was recognised by TripAdvisor as a Travellers’ Choice award-winner for Top Tourist Attraction in Ireland.
And the accolades continue, with no less than five 2023 awards for local visitor attractions in the CIE Tours annual Awards of Excellence earlier this year.
