The world-renowned Galway Bay Golf Resort has marked the official relaunch of its acclaimed links course and hospitality facilities with a National Quality Assurance Award from Fáilte Ireland.
The award recognises standards of excellence achieved at the famous PGA Championship golf course, the new Dunes Bar and the Ocean Restaurant at the picturesque resort in Oranmore.
The revamp of the golf course, bar and restaurant follows the recent appointment of Mr Martin Daly as General Manager of the resort. Mr Daly previously managed the 104-bedroomed Carlton Shearwater Hotel and Spa at Marina Point in Ballinasloe.
Exciting new bar-food and à la carte menus have been launched at the Dunes Bar and Ocean Restaurant, which feature a broad selection of traditional and modern cuisine incorporating fresh, locally sourced produce.
“We’re extremely proud of the award and it reflects a lot of hard work that was involved in getting things absolutely right for the relaunch of Galway Bay Golf Resort,” said Mr Daly.
“It’s an exciting time at the resort; both the bar-food menu and the Sunday lunch menu have proven extremely popular with members and visitors alike, and the golf course is in magnificent condition. We’re looking forward to a big summer,” he added.
The resort boasts one of the finest links courses in Europe, which is characterised by dramatic water hazards, concealed bunkers; and is set against the breathtaking backdrop of the Atlantic Ocean.
Designed by Christy O’Connor Jnr, the Irish Ryder Cup legend succeeded in sculpting a golfer’s paradise from the challenging terrain of the beautiful Renville peninsula.
The new Dunes Bar provides an ideal retreat in which to unwind after a testing round on its plush fairways and manicured greens. The bar enjoys panoramic vistas of the course’s spectacular landscape on the windswept shores of Galway Bay.
The relaunched hospitality facilities at Galway Bay Golf Resort also offer event management services and cater for corporate parties, golf societies and special occasions.
