It is a cultural hub and an exciting time for the city as we bid to become the European Capital of Culture in 2020. Just a short stroll from Eyre Square, the Radisson Blu Hotel & Spa, Galway is at the heart of the excitement and I am looking forward to managing the hotel to develop all areas to further enhance what is already a fantastic experience for both guests and the local community alike.”
