The hotel is very nice and clean. The rooms are spacious (the only fault in my opinion is the lack of a shelf in the bathroom, there was no space to put the toiletries). The staff is very friendly and polite. We really liked their delicious breakfast - you order it from the menu and it is freshly prepared. Besides... More

We booked this very last minute and ended up with the suite which was lovely. King room and adjoining living area. Wonderful rain shower. It labels itself as a boutique hotel and is quirky in its decor. Staff are friendly, its in an excellent location. The breakfast was disappointing. We arrived 30 minutes before it was due to finish and... More

This is a great hotel to stay in while visiting Galway. Just a minute or two walk from the shops, restaurants and pubs. I loved the décor of the hotel and the finishing touches add a little more to your stay than most hotels.

Stayed here for two nights at the beginning of the week as a wedding gift. Rooms were modern and comfortable-small though. Road noise in the morning was very loud-a gas powered leaf blower and street sweeper (?) were very noisy each morning around 6am. While our bathroom looked nice there was no 'sealed door' so privacy was lacking. Our tub... More

We stayed in The House Hotel for a weekend in September and from start to finish it was fantastic. We were greeted by lovely reception staff and checked into our room which was really comfortable and clean. The décor of the entire hotel is really funky and vibrant, from the reception to the room. We had dinner that night in... More

The House Hotel is an excellent place to stay in Galway. There is no on-site parking which is a bit cumbersome and there is no place to load and unload your luggage. The decor is a little too modern for my tastes with lots of pink and black etc. The staff is friendly and accommodating. We had a deluxe room... More

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.
