I stayed at this hotel 2 years ago . And our room was robbed . Their security is terribly outdated they are still using the old key system where I believe was the cause of our room to be robbed. either an ex patron copied the key or maybe it was a staff member. but anyway there was no sign...

Eyre Hotel fit the bill! We arrived by bus and was pleased that we walked across the street and around the corner and their it was. Check in was... More

I spent a weekend at the Eyre Square hotel and have nothing but praise for the staff. It was my first experience of Galway, and in fact Ireland, and the staff did their country proud. Always helpful and friendly, especially the receptionists who couldn't do enough. Room was clean and tidy, great shower, comfy bed. Did just the job for... More

This is an old style hotel. It doesn't have the glitz and glimmer that other more expensive hotels may have. I would have given it a higher rating except for two things. There is no deadbolt lock on the room door. I propped a chair against the door both nights of our stay. The other thing is if you leave... More

As the title says "location" . Its the perfect spot if heading out in Galway. Its bang in the center. Walking distance to everything. Next door is the train & bus station and across the square is Galways bustling nightlife. The rooms are clean, somewhat small but if booked in advance or from the hotel sites then you can be...

Just up from the bus and train station and in Eyre Square, walking distance on a night out not overly beautiful hotel but would do the trick especially if someone would like close by to everything, Galway is a mighty City

This hotel has a great location. Less than a 5 minute walk from the bus station, lots of shops, and pubs. The hotel was very basic, and plesantly clean. The walls are very thin and you can hear everything in the other rooms and hallway. If you're a light sleeper I'd recommend earplugs. I would absolutely stay here again.

Had a meal in bar with bar food was good and fast service. The place itself was lifeless with no atmosphere a few tvs in bar and few people around. It is convenient as it is on eyre square. Food served until 8 30 pm. It's so big it has no character.....
