Afternoon tea at Galway's Hardiman Hotel

You’ve heard of supermarkets and parks allotting priority hours for older people. But what about hotels?

Galway’s Hardiman Hotel, which reopens on July 17, is devoting an entire “Designated Bedroom Floor” to the over-65s.

It’s the second floor of the hotel, GM Patrick Murphy tells me, meaning guests can avoid taking lifts, and there’s a dedicated dining area, too... should guests wish to avail.
