Is Sunday lunch a thing of the past? It has certainly changed. It is far more informal than in the past and it doesn’t even need to be strictly at lunchtime. These days, a Sunday lunch at home is just as likely to be a one-pot dish prepared in advance, a stir-fry, or pulled pork rather than a proper roast. In the summer it can be a barbecue or an al fresco picnic, perhaps with ice-cream and fruit, in the colder months, slow-roast lamb with seasonal vegetables and a hot pudding are the order of the day.
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. It enjoys close proximity to the bus and railway stations, all main city bus routes, and there are taxi ranks aplenty on the doorstep. Ireland West Airport is 88.5km from the hotel while Galway Racecourse is just a 10-minute drive (assuming that it is not during the actual races, when your guess is as good as mine). Despite being so close to all of this activity, it stands slightly aloof, tucked away in a quiet cul-de-sac on top of the hill with tranquil views of the water.
This popular suburban hotel is a busy spot. You will find some tourists and those traveling for business, but it is a regular haunt for locals too. It boasts a fitness and leisure centre with a pool, steam room, and a large outdoor Jacuzzi. Whether staying for business or holidaying with the family, it ticks all the boxes. Equidistant from both Salthill and the city centre, it is a great location for visitors to explore Connemara and the west from, and there is ample parking for guests.
In the centre of the city, perched on a bustling one way street, the much loved Park House Hotel gives out good vibes from the moment you enter the door. Located on Forster Street, an area of the city that shows signs of getting a new lease of life and already has a lot of popular, new, eateries within wine-spitting distance, Park House first opened in 1975. This is a hotel with a difference, built on nostalgia. Attentive staff in waistcoats and rooms with warm decor all send out the right messages to arriving guests. The bright, comfortably furnished, lobby, is a pleasure for both business and leisure guests to check in, thanks to the efficiency and helpfulness of friendly receptionists who explain the hotel's amenities and make everyone feel at home. Good food is a highlight of a stay at this pleasant hotel, and it is obviously appreciated by local diners too, as the restaurant and bar tables are likely to be fully occupied most evenings.
