48 hours in the g Hotel
If you are visiting Galway and the g Hotel for your Summer getaway, we highly recommend staying for longer than two days (there is just so much to see, do and enjoy!)
But, if you are stuck for time and only have a precious 48 hours to visit the City of Tribes, here is an itinerary of some of our top recommendations to make the best use of your time!
Arrive at the g Hotel for a fabulous late morning ESPA treatment. In today’s hectic, always-on World, it’s more important than ever to take a moment for your personal wellness. To escape to somewhere special and completely switch off from the realities of life.
Now that you are fully relaxed and back in a zen like state, the only thing that can make this great day perfect, is afternoon tea! Here at the g Hotel & Spa, our famous Afternoon Tea has been described by TheTaste.ie as “the best Afternoon Tea in Ireland” – so why would you want to miss it?!
Take your seat in one of our fabulous Signature Lounges as our highly-trained team of waiters shower you with the 5-star service that is the cornerstone of our iconic Afternoon Tea. While they do that, our prized team of pastry chefs will be busy turning delicious local ingredients into homemade and handcrafted pastries, freshly baked scones, intricately detailed savory bites, and mouth-watering sweet treats.
After checking into your spacious and luxurious bedroom, your evening begins with a return visit to our Signature Lounges once more, as you enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail.
Each of our delicious cocktails in our menu has been inspired by local Galway and is reflected in the ingredients used.

The night isn’t over just yet! Following on from this, we have organised the perfect date night – our Dinner and a Movie package! Enjoy a delicious two course meal in our Signature Lounge where you can enjoy tasty dishes like crispy chicken wings, charcuterie boards and delicious steak – to name a few. Afterward, you will head over to our neighbors, the EYE Cinema, where you will watch a movie of your choice. Sounds like the perfect chilled evening to us!
You can’t start the day without the most important meal of the day – breakfast! Choose a delicious breakfast from our menu including a cooked to order Full Irish Breakfast, poached eggs or fluffy pancakes.
Following breakfast, take some time to ramble into the city to enjoy the many sights and sounds that the City of Tribes has to offer. If you fancy a bit of shopping, why not let our concierge know before you head in to town and we will organise a personal shopping experience for you in Brown Thomas.
Once you arrive back to the hotel, take a seat in our beautiful Grand Salon where you will enjoy our Champagne Taittinger Tasting Experience. Start your tasting journey by discovering three Taittinger Champagnes: the Champagne Taittinger, the Champagne Taittinger Prestige Rosé, and the Champagne Taittinger Nocturne. One prestigious brand, three different tastes: which one will be your favourite?
Let the final chapter of your visit to the g Hotel & Spa be a culinary experience like no other in Restaurant gigi’s. More than just a hotel dining room, the formal and fashionable 2 AA Rosette-winning Restaurant gigi’s is one of the top places for dinner in Galway. The epitome of cool, everywhere you look in this intimate dining room, there’s a celebration of Philip Treacy’s inspirational creativity. But behind the scenes, it’s the quality of food that comes from the kitchen that really captures guests’ imaginations.
