The Galway Bay Hotel as its name suggests, overlooks the bay & is located on the locally famous Salthill Promenade.  And the prom is only a short distance from the city centre.

The Galway Bay Hotel is a premier wedding venue in Galway & in high demand.  No doubt due to its fantastic location with panoramic sea views, great reception rooms & very professional & attentive staff.  The wedding team will look after you & your guests every need.

The Salthill promenade is very popular with locals & tourists alike.  As a result, there’s always a good buzz around & is a hive of activity.

Spoiled for Choice

Having a Galway Bay Hotel wedding means shortlisting your photography locations.  There’re too many to cover them all!  There’s a park beside the hotel which is great for some bridal portraiture.  There’s a cute little pond with bridge.

The beach is across the road & if not too far away is the Claddagh basin overlooking the Long Walk & Spanish Arch.  And if you like streetscapes then Quay Street beckons.  Time permitting, take a few minutes with your bridal party & have a quick drink in one of the many characterful city pubs.

You won’t regret having your wedding in Galway city & your guests will thank you for it.  If they’re visitors to Galway, it’d be great if they took sometime to enjoy some of the gems the city has to offer.  With such a fabulous location maybe have a day 2 of celebrations.  Chill & enjoy a second day relaxing with your family, friends & guests!
