Lovely hotel next to all the main area

Really nice hotel, only a few minutes walk from the train station and Eyre Square - you’re close to everything but not directly in it so it’s quiet. Room was lovely, breakfast included was lovely & the bar/restaurant area is fab. Really enjoyed ourselves - definitely would come back :)

Great location in Galway city

We just had a great weekend in Galway. The hotel is right in the city centre beside Eyre Sq, the train and bus terminus. Our room was really modern and clean. Every member of staff was so helpful and friendly. We highly recommend staying here.

Die Lage ist super, sehr zentral, aber auch ruhig. Wenn man am Vorabend bucht, bekommt man das Frühstück für 9 Euro statt 12. Dort kann man vieles frisch bestellen wie Porridge oder Rührei. Das Zimmer war nicht zu klein. Matratze sehr gut, Kissen für meinen Geschmack zu hart. Das Personal ist sehr freundlich. Alles in allem ein sehr guter Aufenthalt, würde wieder dort buchen.
