“I’m really looking forward to working and collaborating with the current team at the g Hotel & Spa as we continue to provide a wonderful guest experience to all those who walk our pink carpet. My key focus is, as always, to create an unforgettable guest experience by developing a great team who are happy and supportive of each other in a friendly, fun and hardworking environment.”

It’s no coincidence that quite often the best hotels to work in are also the most wonderful hotels to stay, dine or enjoy a cocktail in too. As a result, I’m always keen to develop an ethos of positivity in the workplace, recognising there are always at least two people involved in every hospitality transaction and both are deserving of my time and consideration.”

Andrew Drysdale has made Galway his home, residing with his wife in Craughwell, Co Galway. He is an active member of Galway Bay Sailing Club and Loughrea Golf Club.

As his tenure as General Manager unfolds, Andrew will showcase future plans for the 5 star g hotel but as always it’s business as usual and growing the hotel’s profile in Galway.
