Accommodation at HYDE Hotel
Located in the East Village neighbourhood, just off Eyre Square, The Forester Court Hotel is within easy reach of countless boutiques and cafés, as well as the two main pedestrianised retail streets in the city, Shop Street and Quay Street. The Latin Quarter, The Spanish Arch and other cultural landmarks in the city centre are also within walking distance, and for anyone looking to explore the natural beauty of The Wild Atlantic Way, the likes of The Cliffs of Moher, The Burren, Connemara, and The Aran Islands are just a day trip away.
As far as accommodation options go, The Forester Court Hotel boasts 50 stylish guestrooms ranging in size from Single, to Twin, Double, Triple rooms, Superior, and even Quad rooms, meaning almost any group dynamic can be catered for. Each room is spacious and homely, and feature complimentary WiFi, flat-screen TVs, tea and coffee making facilities, and modern design features including bedside USB charging ports. There is parking available with reduced rates less than 5 minutes from the hotel, and with a 24-hour front reception desk, staff are on hand to assist with your every need around the clock, 7 days per week.
The HYDE Bar and Gin Parlour is the hotel’s bar and restaurant and offers guests the chance to enjoy one of the best brunch offerings in Galway, a stylish and intimate dinner, or simply a well-deserved drink after a long day on the golf course. With the largest gin collection in Ireland (632 all told!) as well as other cocktails, wine, and beer all on the bar menu, this is an ideal spot for anyone looking to enjoy a fun-filled evening without having to venture away from the comfort of the hotel.
As far as golf goes, both Galway Golf Club and the Galway Bay Resort, home to a championship course designed by Christy O’Connor Junior, are just a short drive away. More famous names including Connemara, and links heavyweights such as Doonbeg and the world-famous Lahinch are about an hour and a half from the hotel, while slightly further afield but certainly not out of the question for true links golf enthusiasts, the incredibly wild but infinitely charming Carne Golf Links and Enniscrone Golf Club are a couple of hours up the coast. Of course, there are more conveniently located accommodation options for golf courses such as these, but for anyone looking to combine world-class links golf with a few days in one of Ireland’s most vibrant cities, The Forester Court Hotel is a superb choice.
