Located on the banks of Lough Atalia and overlooking Galway Bay, the Radisson Hotel certainly has an impressive location. It is just a stone's throw from Eyre Square and all the high profile shops, restaurants, and bars it has to offer, and a handy stroll to the bustling pubs and eateries of Quay Street.
