Lough Rea Hotel and Spa

The Loughrea Hotel and Spa is high up the list of Best Wedding Venues in Galway, but this 4 star hotel has many more strings to its bow. Its location overlooking Lough Rea lake makes for stunning views from the spectacular Rooftop Garden Bar and Sky Lounge. You’re not alone in thinking this is the best rooftop bar in Galway- a perfect spot for corporate events as well as hen nights and stag nights. The platters for up to 30 people include crispy buttermilk chicken, gourmet sausage rolls, panko coated prawns, spiced sticky chicken wings and chorizo, goats cheese and saffron arancini.

There are generous main courses and sides in the BBQ Style Buffet which can be upgraded to include cocktails, beers, extra sides and steak. Delegates say it is the perfect retreat after business hours as well as an ideal party space for hens and stags.

The Shore Island Spa is an oasis of calm. Spa packages are justifiably popular. So many 5-star reviews from clients don’t lie. From facials and manicures to massages, this could be the best spa in for a girlie getaway in Galway. Relax for an hour afterwards in the Thermal Suite to prolong the benefits before getting ready for cocktails and dinner in the Brasserie Garden.

Just 20 minutes from Galway City, it is the perfect base for exploring the county’s many attractions and the Wild Atlantic Way. You need a permit for fishing on Lough Rea but that is easy to arrange. Come July all roads lead to Ballybrit for the Galway Races, so why not book a stay for Race Week when accommodation in the city is so scarce? It is also a great option for romantic escapes, girlie weekends, family get-togethers and Christmas parties.

Family memories can be made during excursions to the Fun Shack Indoor Play Centre, Turoe Pet Farm and the town centre Blue Flag beach at Lough Rea Lake.

A midweek Golden Years break can include visits to the Lady Gregory and Yeats Heritage Trail, the beautifully restored Woodville Walled Garden at the foot of Slieve Aughty Mountains, Finnertys Mills and Museum and St Brendan’s Cathedral.

If you love nature trails and hiking, there are 2000 acres of managed forestry at the Slieve Aughty Centre in Kylebrack West to explore.

The hotel’s proximity to M6, M17 and M18 main arterial routes as well as Shannon and Knock airports make it a fantastic option for conferences without the hassle of traffic. The De Dannan suite can cater for 1-1 interviews, annual company conferences and national events for up to 500 delegates from all over Ireland. There are also 6 breakout rooms- all fully equipped with AV equipment, flipcharts, water, pens and papers and are fully air-conditioned.

There are 300 free car parking spaces and 91 rooms and suites – more than enough for any event or occasion.

Consider this East Galway 4 star hotel for business and pleasure midweek, at weekends and year round.
