It’s a busy time of the year for horse racing in Ireland, next week the country's biggest racing event of the year takes place, the Galway Races.
Newspapers regularly publish articles about hotels increasing their prices during events and the Galway Races is no exception, but there are always good value options available for the savvy booker. Hotels slightly outside the traditional acatchment area can offer much better value for money and be even more convenient.
The Lough Rea Hotel & Spa is one such hotel. Located 20 minutes drive from Ballybrit down the M6, guests can avoid the congestion back to the city centre, especially compared to people who have booked Salthill hotels. The Lough Rea hotel is also running a shuttle bus service on Wednesday and Thursday allowing racegoers to enjoy the day without having to drive. This 4-star hotel has a few remaining rooms from €60 per night Bed & Breakfast pps book the Lough Rea Hotel & Spa online or call 091 880 088.
