We had an absolutely amazing time at our stay at the House Hotel. For location you really can't get better; it is situated just at the bottom of Quay Street and right beside the Spanish Arch. As soon as you walk through the doors you are greeted with a cosy yet modern choice of decor, not usually a fan of... More

This hotel has a good location, high quality rooms (although the bathrooms are a touch small), and high quality service. There is a restaurant/bar on the premises which has an interesting and well put together aesthetic. The overall package stands well above the usual standard of hotel in this price bracket...,

The staff and location are top notch. Breakfast is really good. The room was fine and was quiet. The reception staff went the extra mile to make us comfortable and to give us restAurant ideas. The lobby area is cheerful.

We were welcomed at checkin by a girl called Martha/Magda. Very welcoming and professional and advised us we were given a complimentary upgrade to a deluxe room. The room was great but still very small. I can't find fault with the bed. It was very comfy. At breakfast next morning, staff couldn't have been more helpful. My husband took advantage... More

We stayed in The House Hotel, Galway and found it to be centrally located, ckean andthe staff helpful and friendly. The food was but the dining room effectively doubles up as both a bar and a corridor from front to back so the laouty isn't great. The rooms are quite small but comfortable.

Very friendly greeting on arrival and efficient reception. Room was small, so those who need the wide open spaces may feel claustrophobic. The standard of room was excellent. Bed was really comfortable; shower very effective and TV sufficiently large. Also no noise disturbance at all for us on the night we stayed. Had the thank fizz it's Friday deal -... More

Stayed here a few nights as a base in Galway. Easy walk home from music in the pubs. 2 minute walk from the restarants in the Latin quarter. 1 block from the Galway museum (worth an hour or 2). Nice rooms. Very friendly & helpful staff. Got a bit worried when we got an email that they had closed between... More

I came to Galway for a week for work, and really enjoyed my stay. Being a solo traveller, the only time I spent in the rooms was early morning and evenings which were comfortable and pleasant. The room service and restaurant food were top notch, and really good value for the portion size and quality of the food. The decor... More
