We stayed in Galway 2 nights at this hotel during 2 weeks in Ireland to be right downtown in the middle of everything. If you can negotiate the one-way streets of Galway to get to the front of the hotel and then ditch your car in the carpark, this is the perfect location. Within walking distance of the whole Latin...

This year we were scheduled to leave Galway, then come back later, but we decided to stay. Galway is fun. As a consequence, we stayed in three different rooms this time because rooms were so tightly booked. The hotel moved the luggage for us each time while we were out, so it was't a big deal. Probably the most interesting... More

We arrived on Sunday evening and waited at the desk for a few minutes as the receptionist was assisting someone with their bags. Check in was swift thereafter, and Jamie was very friendly, helping us to plan a few things for the next day. Our room was smaller than we expected 'standard size', but cosy and quiet all the same.... More

Finding The House was a minor challenge, but when we discovered it only a few yards from the epicentre of Galway, with a discounted car park only 200 yards away, there was immediately big marks for location. Helpful, friendly staff in all sections of the business cemented the first impressions and while I was not entirely impressed by the upgraded... More

This is a great little hotel. The lobby is so cute. The bar and wait staff are friendly and helpful. We arrived on the tail end of their dinner service, maybe 10 min left, and we were starving on our first night there! They were so accommodating, and kept the kitchen open for our party of 6. We expected a... More

Stayed for 2 nights with my boyfriend. Mixed feelings about hotel. I was under the assumption that there were bathrobes and slippers provided as this was mentioned on the website, these were not provided. The shower had tiles missing and brown scum on the grouting. There were not many sockets in the room. The hotel lobby seems to turn into... More

We always visit the bar here at the start of a night out in Galway, especially if it's a special occasion. The staff are just lovely, very friendly and helpful. The cocktails are the best I've ever tasted, and the staff are happy to advise on the one most suited to your tastes. I was there with s friend one... More

While the guest rooms are small they are updated and clean. However the wifi is very slow and unreliable and the elevator was frequently out of service. This was particularly annoying since I had a room by the elevator and guests checking out at the early morning hours had to drags their bags down the stairs, thumping away and waking... More

What a perfect place to call home for our first two nights in Ireland! The staff was accommodating, gracious, and welcoming. We loved the sparkly, perky pink decor, enjoyed the delicious Irish breakfasts, and ideal location for exploring the town center on foot. Our room was smallish, cozy and clean. We'll definitely stay at The House again, when we return... More
