The g Hotel

Set in a business park next to the Eye Cinema on the east edge of the city with views of Lough Atalia and the busy N6 road, the “g” is a 25-minute walk to Eyre Square, but yet it is probably the hottest place to stay in Galway. The exterior is nondescript, but the interior is certainly eye-catching. It strives to be a trend setter, conceived by one of Ireland’s leading hat designers (Philip Treacy) with a panorama of rich reds, bright pinks, and zebra-illusion stripes in the public areas as well as a stark black and white reception area softened only by the colors of fish floating in a huge tank. It’s an experience just to walk in the public areas, to dine at the Riva restaurant, or to indulge in the Spa, set in a Zen garden, on the upper two floors of the hotel.  Guests “are invited to re-connect with their senses, where time is forgotten and stress disperses.”  Well, it is different, and a dazzling departure from the usual Irish hotel styles.  The 101 guest rooms are spacious and posh, decorated in sea tones, offer every contemporary amenity; and the specialty suites come with private butler service. Rates are high, but there are some special offers from Sunday-Wednesday.
