The Clayton Hotel Galway has a reputation for being a business hotel. Located just off the M6 motorway, it is easily accessible from Dublin, Cork, Limerick, or any other location around Ireland; it is 40 minutes from Shannon Airport, two hours from Dublin Airport, and 2.5 hours from Cork. It's a good location for those travelling for business, and who need to be on the outskirts of the city for a quick getaway. It is well supplied with conference and meeting rooms, and the leisure centre is the ideal place to relax and unwind after a busy day.
But this four star hotel has plenty more strings to its bow. You can enjoy a swim in the 20 metre swimming pool, a range of swimming classes, aqua aerobics classes, group swimming classes, and one-to-one swimming lessons for both adults and children are available throughout the year. You can relax afterwards in the peaceful ambience of the mixed Swedish style sauna and steam room. Recently the hotel has been making a name for itself as a popular wedding venue. The hotel prides itself on having the perfect offering to suit anything from a small intimate gathering to large traditional weddings.
The Enclosure Bar and Bistro is everything you would expect from a hotel bar. Offering a choice of dining options, during the day the bar and restaurant is a hub of meetings and friends having lunch. By night the atmosphere is fun and relaxed, it is a place to enjoy good food and drinks. Highly trained, friendly, and professional staff, a great selection of beverages, a relaxed atmosphere, and good food. It is perfect for casual dining and meeting with friends, family, or work colleagues.
The bar counter takes pride of place in the centre of the room. One wall has floor to ceiling windows providing ample natural daylight, while the dark wood creates a laid back vibe. Clayton Hotel Galway has a strong association with sports and shows GAA games, rugby, soccer, golf, and all major matches in the bar. The large flat screen TVs situated in different areas of the bar ensure they can be watched without being intrusive. Free parking, free WiFi, fast, friendly, service and a tempting, reasonably priced, menu means the Enclosure Bistro has increasingly become first choice for those living and working locally.
