The brand new (Open Apr 2008) Ard Ri House Hotel is located in the picturesque and historically important village of Tuam, Co. Galway. It is approximately 32km from the city of Galway and is an easy journey from the airport.
I love this hotel but I complained to the management about the fact that from I arrived till I checked out, I wasn't met with a smile from any staff member. I am from the locality and live in Dundalk. I had returned to the west to attend my nieces wedding in Galway city but stayed in Tuam the night before as it was closer to the church. Staff are simply not being trained to make customers feel welcome. I was embarrassed to think that people from outside the locality would be treated like that in the west. It's not difficult to smile and it doesn't cost anything. My daughter who was with me and works in HR was appalled.
