8/10 Very good

We had a nice stay at The Connacht! It was a bit farther from downtown than we expected but we found it was very easy to jump on the bus just down the road from the hotel and be at Eyre Square within 10 minutes or less. We loved being able to park our rental car in the hotel lot and know that it was safe. The room left a bit to be desired - we must have been in an older room, and because it was on the first floor, it did not get much light at all. The bathrooms are old. It was still spacious and comfortable for our stay, just a little different than what we expected based on the photos. We LOVED the coffee bar in the lobby, and there was always great live music at the bar at night.
