Right beside the train station, good value, accept group bookings, has its own bar that opens very late. Rooms were all fine, a little small, but grand for a couple of nights.. This isn't a luxury or romantic hotel, but if you're after somewhere for a group heading to Galway it's a great option.

Visited Garveys for our first ( few) pints of Guinness on arrival in Galway the day before St Patricks Day. Over the next few days, had food there on several occasions when both the food and the service was excellent. Found the staff to be very capable (especially the two young girls serving food) and friendly. The atmosphere was very... More

Stags and large parties beware! We stayed in Garveys Inn for a night. When booking they required a €1500 deposit which must be paid in cash and will not accept a credit card. When checking out we were told Garveys were taking €330 for disruption. At no time during our stay there were we told we were making too much... More

My wife and I stayed here over St. Patty's day and had an excellent time. You have to realize going into it that you're staying in a small inn over a pub, it's not the Ritz or the Conrad here folks and you shouldn't expect that for what you're paying. The room was dated but clean as was the bathroom... More

Stopped in Galway to watch the rugby and really had a great weekend, during the weekend visited Garvey's Inn twice for both drinks and breakfast and on both occasions found the service and food very good. The full Irish was very enjoyable and quite reasonable too on price, if in Galway worth a visit.

Stayed here for one night at the end of December 2014. Found the staff to be really friendly and welcoming and the location is excellent. The room is what I would expect for a 3* hotel, clean, comfortable and bright. There is a little noise from traffic, but that is to be expected if you want a location in the... More
