The City of Tribes needs no excuse to visit, as even the briefest of trips to Galway soon reveals why many people still say: “West is best”.

The craic is always mighty over on the other side of the country, but whatever about Galwegians’ love of good humour and a good time, you’ll also find the best of Irish caring and community spirit to the fore.

That’s certainly the case with the acclaimed 5-star G Hotel and spa in Galway city, which has just added yet another reason to stay at the west coast hotel.

To help mark and support October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the G has created its very own ‘Party in Pink’ package.

The package at the G includes an overnight stay with pink treats in the room on arrival; a cooked to order breakfast in the award-winning Gigi’s Restaurant; and Pink Prosecco Afternoon Tea in the Pink Ladies Lounge, all from €115 PPS.

And, best of all, for every such package booked, a €10 donation will be made in the guest’s honour to the National Breast Cancer Research Institute.

Any such guests will also be invited back to the hotel for an exclusive coffee morning in November, when a cheque for the funds raised will be presented to representatives of the Institute.

A staycation at the G promises to be a treat at the best of times, but with the knowledge that a great stay in lively Galway will also be helping to support thousands of people – well, it certainly seems like a G-reat reason to travel over and book in.

Of course, having a helpful stay is just part of the attraction of the G hotel, which has made quite a name for itself since opening.

Its unique design by world-renowned milliner Phillip Treacy exudes style, sophistication and glamour, treating guests to everything from ground-floor opulent lounges to light-filled luxurious accommodation.

Guests also enjoy the award-winning Gigi’s restaurant, along with Galway’s only 5-star destination spa, ESPA, as even more experiences to relish at the renowned hotel.

That’s when guests will be there, of course – with the hotel set just a short walk away from Eyre Square, buzzing Shop Street, and all that Galway city centre has to offer – as well as Galway being a perfect base to explore much of the west coast – many guests will barely have time to settle down for a perfect sleep.
