The g is located in Galway, a city bursting with life, energy and vitality. Steeped in history yet with a decidedly forward-thinking attitude, it has earned the reputation of being the unofficial arts capital of Ireland. The exuberant spirit of Galway has been captured in the g. From the strikingly contemporary exterior to the warm Irish welcome waiting inside, the first impression of the g is that it is a welcome compliment to the city.

From the moment you step inside the g you know that you are in a uniquely special place. The dark and intimate reception area sets the tone, with black glass walls acting as a frame for a tank of Connemara-bred seahorses and bespoke concierge wall, designed by Philip Treacy. Covered in white Venetian plaster and reminiscent of a seashell, this is a hint of the surprises to come.

The public areas of the g on the ground floor extends to over 18,000 sq ft with three individually styled and themed lounges and a restaurant, all linked by a raspberry carpeted corridor. The impression is of walking through a particularly glamorous dolls house, with golden doorways framing the entrance to each room. From the exquisite Grand Salon to the distinctively pink Pink Salon and more masculine Blue Lounge , the g offers a stunning environment to meet and relax.

If the guest's introduction to the g hotel is through its wildly glamorous public rooms, the guestrooms are havens of intimacy and sensuality. Each guestroom has the distinctive Philip Treacy touch, evident in the detail as well as in the overall effect - which is one of stylish originality and supreme comfort. Philip's choices - from the wallpaper, lighting and artwork to the furniture and flooring - have been inspired by the landscapes and seashores of County Galway. The colours, textures and materials used reflect this heritage and tradition, but are also effortlessly contemporary.

The g hotel offers a total of 101 guestrooms including 3 suites -the Evangelista suite, the Corner suite, the Atrium suite and 26 junior suites. The remaining rooms are of either superior or deluxe standard. Whichever room or suite is chosen, guests will enjoy sensational bathrooms, many with showers built for two, and cutting-edge in-room entertainment. Above all, it is the thoughtful unpretentious service - including a team of dedicated Butlers - that will make each guest's stay at the hotel a truly red carpet experience.

Our restaurant at the g is set to become Galway's most talked about restaurant, perfect for both guests and locals. The restaurant at the g, seating 70, offers contemporary Italian cuisine with some international favourites added to cater for the many international travellers visiting the g. The g's distinctive approach to design is carried through to the restaurant, with banquettes in purple velvet and jewel-coloured Andrew Martin chairs.

Serving bespoke 'g hotel' cocktails as well as more familiar favourites, the g's Cocktail Bar is deliciously decadent. A carpet of thousands of Red Swarovski crystals adorns the bar itself is a distinctive feature, and one that guarantees a glamorous start - or finish - to any evening.

orld leaders in Spa design and product, ESPA has developed the total concept and design of this five star ESPA at the g, working closely with architects and designers Douglas Wallace.

ESPA at the g's design reflects a relaxed timelessness of contemporary elegance. In keeping with the overall design philosophy developed by Philip Treacy, nothing has been spared in its beautiful design and the superior quality of its finishes. Stone, wood, linen and glass are used in complementary new ways with subtle, warm colours. Mood enhancing lighting is used to calm and comfort, creating a sense of spiritual retreat. Guests are invited to re-connect with their senses through the gentle sounds of music and water, the fragrance of fresh flowers and scented candles, the grounding element of wood flooring, the patterns and textures of rich materials and the taste of a warming tisane. An extensive treatment list will be available for both hotel residents and day visitors, using ESPA's fantastic products. Alternatively, guests may simply reserve time to relax in ESPA at the g's luxurious environment.
