Galway Hotel Awards
The Connemara Coast Hotel has received a number of high profile awards over the years.
These awards come from associations recognised both nationally and internationally and include the McKenna Guides, Irish Accommodation Services Institute, Georgina Campbell's Ireland, Green Hospitality and TripAdvisor.
The genius of the Irish for offering unique hospitality is the underlying imprimatur of John and Sally McKenna’s annual guide to the 100 Best Places to Stay in Ireland. The McKenna’s don’t care if the address is a castle or a wooden hut, because they know that what counts is not some idea of grandeur or comfort, but the ability of the hosts to charm, captivate and create a unique experience for their guest. Since its first appearance in 1992, the 100 Best Places to Stay in Ireland has defined the summit of Irish hospitality, celebrating the very best hosts and their unique houses. To find the magic of Irish hospitality, you must travel with the 100 Best Places to Stay in Ireland.
The Connemara Coast Hotel received an Excellence Award from TripAdvisor in June 2016.
This award is presented to hotel's that receive consistently great reviews from their guests
on the TripAdvisor website. TripAdvisor is the world's largest travel site and the hotel is
very proud to have received such a prestigious award from them.
At the Irish Accommodation Services Institute Awards in early 2014 the Connemara Coast Hotel was presented with a Gold Star Award in the 4 Star Hotel category. There were 27 finalists in this category, of which the Connemara Coast Hotel received a Gold Award and was pipped at the post for the Supreme Award in this Category.
The Gold Star was awarded for achieving excellence in accommodation services standards for the quality, hygine and cleaniness of its bedrooms and public areas. This is the fourth year running that the accommodation team in the Connemara Coast Hotel received awards from the IASI for their consistently high standards.

Facilities include an atmospheric bar, two restaurants, a children’s playroom (and playground) and a leisure centre - and a policy of constant refurbishment and upgrading ensures a warm, well-cared for atmosphere.
