Galway's g Hotel has completed a €1 million refurbishment of its foyer, lounges, and restaurant and cocktail bar.
Under the direction of Choice Hotel Group Ireland, the concept for the €1 million refurbishment of the five-star hotel on the edge of Lough Atalia was to draw inspiration from the avant garde, the diverse and the opulent to create a distinct identity for each of the hotels' lounges that celebrates individuality and uniqueness.
A new cocktail bar has been added to the property, and the venue's restaurant has been renamed GEO. The dividing wall between the restaurant and cocktail bar has been removed, and GEO Restaurant opens out onto a new garden terrace.
According to g Hotel executive head chef Dominique Majecki, the name GEO comes from Earth and the geography of the world, with his inspiration coming from around the globe but using local and Irish food.
The hotel's two lounges have also been redesigned.
Statement By Regional General Manager
Regional general manager Patrick Murphy said, "Wow was the first word that came to mind when I saw the finished product, the g hotel is no ordinary hotel, it's Galway city's only five-star hotel and has always made people talk about its style, design and location. For me it was critical we protected that discussion at all costs, but also, we moved the design forward with the customer needs of today. Our design team have achieved that for sure on the ground floor, even managing to keep some of the old design features for you to spot and now my team get an opportunity to display their style, skill, craft and care to our wide and varied customer base. Judge for yourself, we can’t wait to welcome you back and hear what you think about the style, design and refurbishment and most importantly for me, enjoy the wow factor our service team have created to support the product."
