We stopped into Hayden's in Ballinsloe on a rainy Sunday after visiting Clonfert Cathedral on the way to Galway. The prime rib option in the Sunday Carvery offering was excellent! The meat was perfect, ample and so tasty. Well done Hayden's.

Didn't stay in accommodation but had a pleasant evening in the bar. Agree with other contributors that this establishment has seen better days. There were only about 10 people in the place, including us 4. The internal architecture in this pub is quite grand and one could imagine that it has hosted some grand occassions in its history. It is... More

Visited Haydens with family over for a wedding weekend. Horrible service at the bar and awful treatment from who I can only assume was a bouncer/security. He manhandled female members of the family as we weren't residents of the hotel even though we had been in the bar throughout the evening. Rude and disrespectful. As residents of Ballinasloe, this place... More

What a shame this hotel has been allowed to deteriorate the way it has. I know this was a fine hotel in the past. The room was pleasant and I would say had been decorated in the last year or two. However the rest of the hotel left a lot and I mean a lot to be desired. The breakfast... More

Growing up in Ballinasloe Haydens Hotel was a reputable and desirable place to stay and socialise,,,but that was at least 30 years ago. Nothing seems to have been done to the hotel since then and it is extremely tatty and in need of a lot of investment at this stage. The first impression when you get to the entrance is... More
