Espa at the g hotel

Galway

Visitors to this 101-room hot spot are awed by the vision of design director Philip Treacy, a worldrenown hat designer and Galway native. The boldly colored restaurant and bars contrast with the stone, linen, glass, and wood of the softly lit Espa at the g hotel. The feeling of luxury pervades the entire facility, particularly in the spa, where visitors enjoy chakra-balancing treatments, detoxifying massages, and skin-brightening facials, among other services, in eight contemporary treatment rooms. Other posh facilities include a bamboo roof garden, tepidariums, and a rock sauna.
