The Hardiman Hotel, Eyre Square, Galway City

Four-Star Hotel. Town Centre Location

Proudly standing on Eyre Square in Galway, the Hardiman Hotel began life as the Railway Hotel in 1852, traded for many years as the Great Southern Galway and more recently as Hotel Meyrick. What hasn’t changed is its perfect location in the heart of Galway City and its reputation as a superb and somewhat iconic hotel. The Hardiman combines friendly hospitality with a familiar charm that makes guests feel right at home. Offering 103 guestrooms and suites, the Hardiman is the perfect base from which to explore the stunning Connemara landscape and play the likes of Connemara Golf Links, Galway Bay and Lahinch to the south. It’s also close enough to Shannon Airport to conveniently serve as the last stop for a few nights before departure.

Sightseeing & Tourist Attractions in West & Northwest Ireland

The main attraction of Ireland as a golf destination may indeed be its great golf courses but the overall experience is influenced by many other factors including great accommodation options, restaurants, pubs, people, and not least it’s stunning scenery and superb visitor attractions. Each region offers something very different and with all locations being quite close together, it’s very easy to mix the stunning countryside and coastline with more urban attractions.

We work closely with our clients to recommend what suits their trip best. You may have a full day to spend sightseeing or you may prefer to squeeze in a quick scenic stop on the way to or from the golf course but we will make sure that you maximise your experience at all times. The below is intended as a very general guide to sightseeing in West and Northwest Ireland Ireland.

Often the path less travelled in Ireland, the region has much to offer. Galway is a vibrant city with excellent restaurants, shops and pubs and it’s a great base from which to explore the the area. Moving west towards Connemara and the beautiful town of Clifden, you will encounter some of the most ruggedly beautiful scenery in Ireland and should include a visit to Connemara National Park and take a hike up Diamond Hill. Other recommendations include Kylemore Abbey (pictured below), the scenic Renvyle Peninsula, Aran Islands and the Quiet Man Museum in Cong.

Kylemore Abbey

Travelling north from Connemara, Westport is another lively, picturesque town from where you should make sure to visit Westport House and Gardens, while the more energetic amongst us will enjoy a hike up Croagh Patrick, known as Ireland’s Holy Mountain (pictured below). Another interesting stop is the Ceide Fields Visitor Centre near Ballycastle, while the towering Slieve League Cliffs and Glenveagh National Park should not be missed when in Donegal.
