The G Hotel, Galway

There’s nothing better at this time of year than getting away from the Winter monotony with a little mini break. I get a serious case of the Winter blues.. the lack of daylight and cold weather does me absolutely no favours, so last week I happily toddled off to Galway for the weekend. I had bought a deal from LuxuryBreaks.ie a good while back and for €198 it offered a night’s stay in a deluxe room with breakfast and a 2 course dinner for 2.

I’ve stayed in The G before so knew what to expect – luxury! It may have been miserable outside for most of our stay, but once you step through the doors the hotel is fabulous. With 3 different lounges to choose from you’re spoilt for choice. My favourite has to be the relaxed tones in the first lounge.

With half an hour to wait before our room was ready, we whiled the time away with a few cocktails.

The corridors and rooms are equally as plush. Our room had a fabulous bathroom with freestanding bath and a double shower, a sitting area, Nespresso machine and those all important cupcakes they give – delicious!

Feeling like taking it easy, we treated ourselves to an hour in the Thermal Suite and Relaxation Room which was fabulous. We didn’t get any spa treatments, but made the most of the sauna, steam room and vitality pool.

After all that lying around, we’d worked up an appetite so I was eager for dinner – the hotel is just as stunning in the evening time.

Our meal was quite faultless, a lot of choice on the menu, fantastic food and helpful, friendly staff.

My ONLY complaint was the cappuccino I got… personally I think €4.80 is just that bit overpriced for a coffee!

Breakfast was served in the restaurant too and ran through till 11am which is great – a lie in is always a bonus πŸ™‚ I pretty much felt like all I did over the weekend was eat! But it was hard not to take full advantage of the amazing breakfast spread … plenty of cereals, dried fruit, yogurt, fresh fruit, cold meats and cheese, the usual sausages bacon and eggs and of course the baked treats in croissants, pain au chocolat and Danish pastries.

We had such a nice and relaxed stay at The G… while it’s close enough to the city to stroll in, it also feels a world away once you step through the doors. This was a perfect way to break up the Winter and the deal is still available on LuxuryBreaks.ie as far as I know. Treat yourself!
