Convenient Hotel for Clarecastle Area
What could have been a positive experience was spoiled by the shock of a dirty toilet. Also surprised by lack of any printed material in the room both relating to hotel facilities and places of interest in the locality.

Arches hotel is 10km from Galway city. We needed an overnight stay for an early hospital appt and this accommodation met our needs. Staff friendly and food was adequate.price was reasonable for 2 persons. Good sized room we have stayed in this hotel previously and would stay here again

Great Hotel
Great service and an amazing breakfast. The room for families was very large and we loved the set up. The only negatives were the lack of air conditioning and we were near a very noisy street.

Brilliant hotel for a family break, everything we needed in our bedroom and the food was fantastic in the restaurant. Breakfast served until 11 which was an added bonus. Would definitely recommend, has everything you need, clean comfortable bedrooms, comfortable beds and very friendly staff.
