More than 600 new hotel bedrooms are oplanned for Galway as strong hotel trade in the county continues.
Hoteliers and developers are planning to deliver the new rooms from 2020, according to a study by Savills Ireland.
According to the figures from Trending.ie, Galway hotel occupancy was almost 75% last year.
Over the three year period from 2013 to 2016, average room rates grew from €72 to €95.
During the peak summer period this year, Galway hotels had a vacancy rate of just 5%.
At the moment, 10 hotels are in various stages of the planning process with new builds and extensions on the way.
There are 3,218 rooms in Galway City and if all of the proposed projects go ahead the hotel bedroom supply will increase by 20%.
