Galway Road, Loughrea, Galway
When looking for somewhere to stay on our way home from our Wild Atlantic Way roadtrip we found the Lough Rea Hotel & Spa. After all that driving we wanted an evening of relaxation, no adventuring; just plenty of food and a marshmallow bed. For €75 for 2 people including breakfast, our stay in Lough Rea was just what we needed. The hotel was one of RSVP magazines top 3 Irish wedding venues of 2015. It overlooks Lough Rea lake and is just 20 minutes from Galway, so it's the ideal place for a staycation. As you can probably see we went all out trying the food, as in we ate until we were barely able to move! If you visit the hotel make sure to have a cocktail (or a few) in the beautiful roof top bar after your dinner. So if a romantic staycation is on the cards for 2016, or maybe a girly weekend (they have a spa too) you know where to look.
Let me know you're hotel suggestions for 2016, any excuse for a trip is always welcome
