Galway is rising like a phoenix from the ashes of the worst economic recession of all time.
With new restaurants, bars, cafés, hotels and shops emerging every few months as welcome additions to the beautiful city and county, it is very clear that the only way is up from here.
And the latest to soon hit the scene?
Feast your eyes on Residence Hotel...
The game-changing boutique hotel set to open in the heart of Galway.
Like champagne? Then you'll love this...
Residence is the first ever hotel in Europe to partner with slick and luxurious champagne brand, Belaire.
You may recognise it from DJ Khaled's Snapchat story, as he's a big fan. And if you've ever tried it, you'll know just how gorge it is.
Belaire will be available on-demand for all guests — now that's luxury.
The boutique hotel will be located on Quay Street, just up from beautiful Spanish Arch and across from The Quays pub.
You really couldn't ask for a part of Galway more steeped in culture, craic and history.
Not only will you be surrounded by some of the best food and drink in the city and country, but Residence plans to soon open a slick bar as part of the hotel, called 1520.
Other features include:
- Netflix in every room
- Sony Smart TVs
- Nespresso machines in every room
- Individually themed and designed, art-decked rooms
Residence Hotel is expected to open before the end of March with room prices starting from €100.
Excitement doesn't even begin to describe how we feel about this place, and no doubt it will book out in seconds.
So watch this space...
