From the moment you step inside the g you know that you are in a uniquely special place, it is one which evokes not only old-fashioned Hollywood glamour but also the hotel’s location near the romantic coastline of Galway. The dark and intimate reception area sets the tone, with black glass walls acting as a frame for a tank of Connemara-bred seahorses and bespoke concierge wall, designed by Philip Treacy. Covered in white Venetian plaster and reminiscent of a seashell, this is a hint of the surprises to come.
The public areas of the g on the ground floor extends to over 18,000 sq ft with three individually styled and themed lounges and a restaurant, all linked by a raspberry carpeted corridor. The impression is of walking through a particularly glamorous dolls house, with golden doorways framing the entrance to each room.
