Visitors To The Westwood From The UK
Perfectly positioned at the cusp of the city and the gateway to Connemara, The Westwood stands between the hum of artistic Galway to the East, and the brittle beauty of the Atlantic Coast to the West. A central spot for the business or conference guest as well as an ideal base for the leisure traveller, The Westwood Hotel is just a mile and a half from Galway’s Shop Street and a short stroll to Galway’s University Quarter and teaching hospital.
Located just 1 hrs drive from Shannon Airport and 2.5 hours from Dublin Airport, including the West Coast of Ireland in your itinerary has never been easier. There are also regular daily non stop coach transfers between Galway and the main airports which allows you to sit back, relax and enjoy the Irish Country side.
Galway is a fun loving city on the west coast of Ireland. Perfectly blending hip with tradition, Galway is a destination for Irish people and overseas visitors alike. Voted as the World's Friendliest City by Travel + Leisure Magazine, Galway has sometimes been described as the San Francisco or Berlin of Ireland. Already home to some of the world's largest Med Tech companies, Galway is the Start Up capital of Ireland. As well as work - the people of Galway know how to play! Officially Ireland's City of Festival's, there is an event for every month of the year. Galway is home to the fantastic street theatre company Macnas who regularly entertain visitors with spectacles and parades.
Shopping is always a pleasure in Galway with pedestrian streets and village like city centre making it easy to browse, stop for coffee and mix with the locals. In addition to the designer Brown Thomas and Kilkenny Shops, there are a wealth of boutiques in the city centre such as Willow, Portabello or for Irish Fashion with a twist, check out The Tweed Project which create handmade, one off pieces from beautiful Irish fabrics providing a truly authentic expression of modern Irish design.
Our hotel though intimate & quaint places an emphasis on personal service & a friendly attention to detail. After a day spent visiting the sights or exploring the Wild Atlantic Way you can choose to relax in one of our spacious conservatories. There is FREE Wifi throughout the property so this can be an ideal time to catch up with family & friends. Dining options throughout the hotel vary from the more casual burger & a beer in the Westwood bar to the Irish culinary experience available in the Meridian restaurant.
