I've stayed at the Forster Court Hotel a few times over the last three years and each stay has been enjoyable. I stayed there as part of a group and couple. The staff are very friendly especially the receptionist, very helpful & courteous. "Thought for the day" written on the mirror inside the door of the lobby is a great... More

Between the bus station and Eyre Square, a well priced hotel, with very clean rooms, comfy beds, a breakfast to die for, and competent and very friendly staff. My experience has been outstanding, and I won't look any further if I come back to Galway -which I will do. You shouldn't look any further, either.

Probably one of my faves while I was in Ireland. Room was quiet, staff was amazingly helpful & the bar manager was amazing! Plenty for plugs for recharging. Room was nice, big & cozy! It's a few minutes walk from shop street where everything is happening but easy to find across from bus station & made for a good nights... More

Excellent location right in the heart of Galway, next to the bus station, and minutes from shops and pubs. Couldn't ask for a better place, the bar and restaurant downstairs was good and also there was nice decor all around the hotel. We also got our room cleaned and there were chocolates waiting for us when we returned-very nice touch.... More

I stayed here for 1 night last week. I paid EUR75.00 for a room only rate. The room itself was only okay. Some of the furniture e.g. mahogany type dresser, writing desk, bedside tables, etc. could have done with a varnish as they were shabby looking. But I got over that. What really disgusted me about this hotel, was the... More

We arrived on Saturday, everything was fully booked everywhere in Galway city, Ewa, David and Pat were so welcoming and kind. They tried so hard to find a place for us, and they did it! Few days after we came back to the hotel and Ewa asked some extra to our honeymoon and everything was perfectly lovely! Full of attention,... More

Spent a long weekend here with friends and family, staff where really attentive and friendly, nothing too much trouble for them. Breakfast (Irish) was excellent. Bar staff really good, by chance one of the lads grew up in Birmingham just down the road from me and was great fun. Would recommend this Hotel for groups of people that are staying... More

With 6 travelers, our choices for accommodations needed to be very specific. We wanted old Ireland charm (b&b in a hotel), and Forster Court did not disappoint. Location was wonderful, and rooms were roomy and provided everything we needed with charming style. It's clear they have had some upgrades to an old building, so wide stairways to walk up/down, big... More

Stayed here for three nights last January. Unfortunately, the weather was miserable with a lot of storms so couldn't make the most of what the city has to offer. The rooms were spacious and clean. Housekeeping refreshed the rooms every day to a nice standard. Breakfast had a good variety every morning and the hot food arrived on good time... More

Hi Edel, Thank you for leaving such a nice review. I'm very sorry to hear you were unable to enjoy all of Galway's wonderful sights due to the storms but I'm delighted to know that you were well taken care of while you took shelter with us. I do hope you get the opportunity to visit us again soon, hopefully... More
