5* Hotel
g Hotel: (Allocation now full - please contact the hotel directly if you wish to check availability)
The g,  located in Galway, a city bursting with life, energy and vitality. The exuberant spirit of Galway has been captured in the g. From the strikingly contemporary exterior to the warm Irish welcome waiting inside, the first impression of the g is that it is a welcome compliment to the city.
The g’s design director is renowned hat-designer Philip Treacy, a native of Galway, and his special touch is evident everywhere, from the bespoke concierge wall to the artwork in every room. If Philip Treacy’s distinctive flair defines the g experience, it is underpinned by impeccable standards of service, and attention to detail, without which the g would not be the first-class hotel that it is.
