Monks is a luxury accommodation and seafood restaurant located on the waterfront of Ballyvaughan Harbour, where it has been the home of seafood in Galway Bay for more than 40 years. Nestled in the heart of the Burren, against a sheer backdrop of mountains that stretch out to magnificent Black Head, the property is the ideal base for sightseeing trips and outdoor adventures.

HopDigital recently partnered with Monks to develop their new website. The team was tasked with creating a site that mirrored their new branding, used their stunning new photography, and told the story of Ballyvaughn’s rich history.

The main objective for the new website was to engage their users and, through clear calls to action and an easy user journey, encourage them to make a room or table booking.

It was important to our client that the website was image-led, as they were keen to showcase their newly refurbished rooms, high-quality seafood dishes and beautiful waterfront location.


Using the brand colours and imagery, the front-end design worked well to reflect the hotel’s personality whilst promoting Ballyvaughan as the perfect place to visit, relax and enjoy outdoor adventures. The modern font and striking photography highlight the hotel’s high-quality values and communicates what guests can expect from their stay.

The website was built on WordPress, designed to provide our client with easy access to update information across the website as and when needed.

Monks website is seamlessly integrated with our all-in-one, cloud-based property management system, HopPMS, providing the client with everything they need to run their business in one place whilst delivering an exceptional guest experience.
