The Radisson Blu offers meals around the clock (you can call when you want room service) but standouts include breakfast where you can have a full Irish, or opt for fruit, croissants, scones and every kind of cereal. In fact their breakfast options are so varied and substantial you might not have room for anything for most of the rest of the day.

Lunch and dinner are of course available, with a seasonal a la carte menu that includes chef’s suggestions. Organic dining is a feature, especially welcome when it comes to salmon dishes and fresh produce.

And the desserts are heavenly. Don’t miss the sticky toffee pudding served with caramel sauce, vanilla ice cream and orange powder.

Being a worldwide chain, the Radisson makes business travelers especially comfortable, offering wife throughout the hotel (there are even extra desktops for those tech emergencies).

But in the end it’s the friendly staff, the attentiveness to detail (which in this finely hotel was the most professional I have ever experienced) and the sheer comfort of the rooms with their outstanding views of the city and the Corrib that made all the difference.

Galway, like Ireland, is on its way back from the shock of recession and austerity and its venues like the Radisson, coupled with the cultural vitality of the local arts scene and the traditional music that tumbles out of every pub along the main streets that assures you it won’t be long before the city bounce back from the difficulties of recent years.

There’s food for thought and fine dining for the palette in this incomparable city town, so what are you waiting for? To learn more about the Galway International Arts Festival visit www.giaf.ie. To make a booking at the Radisson Blu Galway visit www.radissonhotelgalway.com.
