Breakfast was included in the price and was very nice, juice, fresh fruit, cereal, full Irish breakfast, toast, tea and coffee.... More

Just back from a hen party in Galway. We all had a great time. The hotel was fantastic. Staff were very helpful and the food was beautiful. The hotel was within walking distance to all the great pubs in the area.

The receptionist was very friendly and helpful as we did not book in advance. The room was clean and very comfortable added that with free wifi. We ate in the restaurant downstair that night, the food was good but we had to wait over an hour for our main course (only couse we ordered).

The hotel is a little off the square but worked well for us. Only a short walk to all the bars and hot spots but was a quiet and comfortable room.
