Can’t say enough good things about the Gateway! My fiancé and I stayed there for a weekend while visiting from America. The hotel is in a great location, right in the heart of Swinford and the room we stayed in was perfect – very clean and more than enough space for the two of us. The staff were all very warm and welcoming, and the owner (Cathal) was around the whole time making sure our stay was perfect. The food and atmosphere at the hotel bar is great as well. They were having a steak promotion the Friday night we were there and the whole meal was excellent. It was the best meal we had while visiting Ireland! Swinford’s a great little town and a perfect spot for staying if you’re looking to explore the coast of Mayo and the other area attractions.
