Introducing the Galmont Hotel and Spa…

Same great hotel, same warm welcome. The 4* Galmont Hotel & Spa, formerly known as the Radisson Blu Galway, has undergone a major rebrand and represents yet another exciting chapter of this iconic hotel.

The new brand identity is inspired by the rich arts, cultural heritage, traditions and vibrancy of Galway. The name of the hotel itself is directly inspired by its unique Galway location overlooking Lough Atalia in Galway city centre as well as the sheer scale of the property, as one of the largest hotels in Galway city on the Wild Atlantic Way and along the west coast of Ireland.

Further drawing on the rich artistic heritage of the fashionable Galway city, a striking herringbone design also forms part of the wider brand look and feel. This design element will form part of all marketing collateral such as brochures and guest information packs. The current tagline the ‘Same Great Hotel, Same Warm Welcome’ warmly invites guests to come, stay and enjoy their time at the hotel. As the new brand identity becomes more established this tagline will naturally evolve focusing on the unique experience that only The Galmont Hotel & Spa can deliver.
The Galmont Hotel & Spa joins the portfolio of the prestigious MHL Hotel Collection which is owned by Paul Higgins, Galway business man John Lally and John Malone. The group currently operates a total of 12 hotel properties across Dublin, Limerick and Galway, two of which are the 5* Glenlo Abbey Hotel and Golf Course and the Harbour Hotel. Other properties within the collection include the 5* Westin Dublin; 5* InterContinental Dublin and The 4*Limerick Strand Hotel.

Commenting on the rebrand, Andrew Drysdale, General Manager said: “The rebrand marks yet another exciting milestone for this well-known hotel. Working in collaboration with the wider MHL Hotel Collection team we have developed a new brand identity that we feel will define the hotel into the future while also cementing the unique role that the property enjoys in Galway’s vibrant leisure and tourism sector”.

“A customer centric focus and excellent service has always been central to our approach at the hotel and this is something that is very much reflected within the wider MHL group philosophy. The already familiar management and hospitality team and I over the course of the year ahead, have some exciting new plans for the hotel but for the moment it is very much business as usual taking care of our Galmont guests old and new,” concluded Drysdale.

As Galway has been chosen to host many new events this year including the European Region of Gastronomy, it is a momentous time for the city. It is a great opportunity for The Galmont Hotel & Spa to showcase their offering to guests coming from far and wide, including their award winning gastronomy. With a season of excellent festivals planned for 2018, there are many special times ahead including the 2020 European Capital of Culture placing Galway at the heart of Europe.

The Galmont hosted a media launch of their new brand last week, an evening which reflected the Galmont’s commitment to a more Galway-centric identity going forward with drinks from Galway Gin Co and locally sourced food.
