The Story of the g Hotel
The g Hotel & Spa is Galway city's only five star hotel and spa. We opened in November 2005 and celebrate our birthday each year with a special rate for our monthly ezine subscribers.
We are part of the Edward Hotel Group and our Design Director was Philip Treacy, milliner to royalty and Hollywood stars. He is originally from a tiny village inland from Galway city and designed the g with the sea in mind as he always associated visiting Galway with visiting the seaside in Salthill. From the moment you step inside the g Hotel, one of the most luxurious hotels in Galway, you know that you are in a uniquely special place. The dark and intimate reception area of this Galway hotel sets the tone, with black glass walls acting as a frame for a tank of Connemara-bred seahorses and includes a bespoke concierge wall, covered in white Venetian plaster and reminiscent of a seashell, this is a hint of the surprises to come. You will also see over 200 twinkling mirrored lights in our Grand Salon alluding to the bubbles in water and the shimmering silver wall tile feature is reminicent of the patterns you see in sand and the ripples of the water. Even our guest rooms have been given the Philip Treacy touch with shell shaped door handles and light filled spaces. The g is a hotel which evokes Hollywood glamour along with a traditional warm Irish welcome.
