A low-cost hotel means more money for food

So I’m in Galway and I’m staying in Flannery’s hotel. 40 quid a night at the moment and a fairly decent WiFi connection. Given I’m here on business, I have a daily budget for accommodation and food. With the money saved on the hotel I’m spending it on food. Once again I went to Cava tonight and for 30 quid got some tapas which comprised of:

Gazpacho soup:

Salted cod cakes with lemon mayonnaise:

Lamb’s heart with pork and chorizo:

oh and pistachio ice cream:

and Flannery’s has been refurbished the past few years so comfortable spacious rooms aplenty. After forking over €150 for rooms in some dodgy London hotels, this is a steal. And I won’t apologise for the constant foodporn people see on my Facebook.

    We passed this recently, but did not venture in. However with these pics, we might think otherwise.

    Clybaun Hotel in Galway were doing rooms for €35 last week with use of the leisure facilities (inc pool). Who says the recession is all bad?

    Dunno how long you are in Galway Damien but we (my company and another one I share an office with) are having a night out for Chrimbo on Thursday in the city centre. If you wish to join us you know where to find me and you would be very welcome.

  3. Cheers but I’m off to Dublin after work in Galway tomorrow. Flying visits all this week, appreciate the offer though. 35 quid is awesome.
