I booked this at short notice through Booking.com for my visit to Galway last week. I was marginally aprehensive as the reviews were pretty mixed. What a great place, I'll definately stay here on all future visits to Galway. Slap bang in the centre, just a minutes walk from everywhere. The linen on the beds was spotless and the matress... More

This was my fourth time staying at Garvey's Inn, and it is the only place I would ever stay in Galway. I stayed for two nights on September 24th and 25th, 2013. The location is just awesome. It is near everything (bus station, restaurants, bars). It is a very good price. The breakfast is fantastic. Wonderful staff at all hours... More

Très bien et amplement suffisant pour un passage en ville, nous avons même décidé de rester une nuit de plus car la chambre était bien et juste au dessus du pub! A 10m un autre pub avec de la musique irlandaise et à 5 min à pieds de la rue passante où il y a tous les commerces. Ne pas... More

We spent three nights in this hotel in August 2013. The rooms are spotless, very comfortable beds. If we are going to Galway again, we will stay there. It's right in the center of Galway and only two minutes walk from the bus- and train-stations. The staff in the bar is very nice, friendly and helpful.

We purchased a LivingSocial voucher (2 nights BnB + 1 dinner) and booked a date in May. Unfortunately, I fell ill on the morning of travel and had to cancel that reservation. The staff member was sympathetic and helpful and I was able to re-book with the minimum of fuss. On our arrival, we were greeted warmly. I would really... More

Had lunch here and it was some of the best value I've ever seen! The dinner menu also looked to be great value, with good specials! The staff were very friendly and there is a good selection of drinks, which are also very good value!

I recently stayed at Garvey's Inn in August 2013. I had read on a few reviews that service was not good, I did not experience this at all. We arrived to the hotel early and the receptionist was very friendly and luckily our room was clean so we were allowed in early. Reviews mentioned that the rooms are small. Yes,... More
