We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the House Hotel. On arrival we received a warm welcome and were made to feel at home right away. The staff could not do enough for us - and Aisling on reception was particularly helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. We stayed with our toddler son and the hotel was more than accommodating, even... More

My mother, husband and I stayed here for one night of our three in Ireland. Well-located, this Galway hotel has wonderful reception staff and boasts a wide range of cool velour-covered pink armchairs, sofas and ottomans in the lobby. The pink theme doesn't continue in the rooms which are freshly decorated with a nice-sized bathroom but I can see why... More

Terrific decor, over the top good service, convenient, amazing breakfast, just absolutely love it and would stay again! My mom and I stayed here on our last night of the trip, and so glad we did. Wifi was strong, even had an American plug in my room so I could charge the devices! Lovely lovely lovely.

I enjoyed this hotel. It is not a cookie-cutter hotel at all. It is unique, quirky, and fun. Beyond that, our room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. The staff were personable and helpful (there was terrible road work around the hotel at the time of our stay, and they were so accommodating). Unlike other reviewers, we thought the breakfast was...

Stayed here for one night during our 2 week trip to Ireland. Hotel is perfect for a girls weekend as it's all pink! I loved it! It's located right in the heart of the Spanish Quarter, walking distance to all the good restaurants, bars, and shopping. The rooms were very clean and comfortable, and breakfast was equally delicious! Would stay... More

This is the third time in three years that I have stayed here. As one of my favourites, I was expecting a lot - and my room did not disappoint. However, my stay this year coincided with the visit of the Duchess of Cornwall. I was surprised that this was not flagged up to be either before arrival, or when... More

I recently stayed in the House Hotel for a hen party and the whole experience was wonderful.. Location was prefect close to the centre. The hotel itself is fabulous, cocktails are delicious and we'll worth a taste. The dinner and breakfast was yummy very tasty and the presentation was very good. Would definitely recommend it for a girly weekend.

My wife and I chose The House for it's central location and professional assistance. They went above and beyond to accommodate our large group with bookings, event organising and good facilities and food. The rooms were in great condition for all the group, clean and comfortable. The breakfasts were delicious.
