Welcoming Our US Visitors
To The Claregalway Hotel
The Claregalway Hotel is located in the heart of the thriving and bustling village of Claregalway just 15 minutes from Galway City. The hotel is ideally located at the junction of the N17(Galway-Mayo-Sligo route) and the N18 (Galway-Limerick-Cork route) and just minutes from Exit 19 on the M6(Galway-Athlone-Dublin motorway) making us the perfect base whether travelling for business or leisure from the US. With fast and convenient public transport routes departing from just outside our hotel gates at regular intervals we are the prime location for those who choose to use public transport to get around Ireland. Galway is also located half way through the Wild Atlantic Way route with some of the main discovery points within driving distance from our hotel. Experience this spectacular coastal route where it unfolds the wonders of nature, the power of the ocean and stunning countryside and landscapes. With everything on our doorstep, we are the perfect choice to enjoy the abundance of tourist attractions and soak up the wonderful atmosphere of Galway, set in the West of Ireland.
Don’t just take our word for it, see what a previous US guest had to say about their stay:
‘We stayed here on our first night in Ireland. We were able to check in early, with plenty of parking behind the hotel. The kids enjoyed the pool and later that night it was just a short trip to Galway. Overall the Hotel was clean, bright, and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The full breakfast in the morning was also fantastic.’ Tripadvisor – June 2019
Access to Galway from the US
Our convenient access to all main motorways from Dublin and Limerick mean we are only 50 minutes from Shannon Airport, an hour from Knock Airport and just two hours from Dublin Airport. All airports have direct flights from a number of US city locations including Boston, Miami, New York, Atlanta, Dallas, Denver and many more destinations. A huge advantage of travelling back to the US from Ireland is that you will pass through U.S. Preclearance facility in both Dublin and Shannon Airport. They are two of only a handful of airports outside North America that offers this facility. The benefit is that having cleared USCBP, passengers arriving in the US are treated as domestic arrivals, allowing them to avoid immigration queues, pick up their bags and go.
Useful Tips when coming from the US
- Car Hire companies are located in all the airports and we recommend that you book an automatic car in advance of your arrival.
- In Ireland, we drive on the left-hand side
- Operating speed limits are in kilometres
- Ireland has 3 pin plugs like the UK
- Please check roaming charges with your mobile phone provider before travelling to Ireland as this can add up to be quite costly
