The Connacht Hotel


Newly refurbsihed, with a choice of dining, entertainment and free parking. The Connacht Hotel is the ideal hotel for the Galway Races 2020

Every year Galway Racecourse plays host to one of the greatest race meetings in the world, the famous and iconic Galway Races Summer Festival that takes place from Monday 27th July to Sunday 2nd August 2020. This year, for health and safety reasons, they have made the difficult but right decision to race behind closed doors, and unfortunately the event will not be open to the public.
