The Galmont is one of the reasons why Galway has become the piece de resistance of Ireland’s food culture. The hotel and its staff are so attuned to the city, to the needs of its residents, its visitors, its business and academic communities, that the hotel at any given moment can feel like the centre of the storm, the place where it is all happening, the place where you want to be.
It’s not an easy matter to create this feeling of being right at the heart of the action, but The Galmont pulls it off. The staff are first rate, the cooking is good. But, above all, it's the warmth of the hospitality you encounter here that makes the difference.
Of course, it helps that the rooms are excellent – stylish; understated – and if you are able to afford the tariff, then the top floor rooms with balconies are pretty amazing. But realistically, it’s downstairs in the restaurants and bars which is where you will want to be, enjoying the sight of Galway being Galway, in the way that only Galway can. The Galmont is a player, a pivotal part of the Galway action, the place you want to be.
