On arriving at the hotel you are very likely to be greeted in Irish at the hotel reception and the bedrooms all contain small booklets with useful Irish phrases and a guide to pronunciation. Thanks to its work in embracing and promoting the Irish language the Menlo Park Hotel received the Gradam Award in 2011, which is awarded to Galway businesses that show a ‘visible’, ‘genuine’ and ‘creative use’ of the Irish Language.
