The Connacht Hotel


I can’t believe February is almost over already. Its been a fantastic start to the year in the hotel with so many meetings and events taking place here. This week is no different with so much happening;

Dyspraxia Support

The Galway Dyspraxia Support Group will be hosting their first evening meet up for adults with DCD/ dyspraxia here in the   Connacht Hotel on Tuesday 28th February at 7:30pm. Given that Galway city is a major university town there may be a cohort of students with DCD/ dyspraxia attending colleges in Galway that might like to meet up with other students with DCD/dyspraxia.

The Galway Dyspraxia Support Group decided to expand their meet up sessions to now hold an evening meet up especially for adults with DCD/ dyspraxia on Tuesday 28th February at 730pm in the Connacht Hotel. The meet up will be facilitated by two adults with Dyspraxia. For more information contact the Galway Dyspraxia Support Group at
