Cute boutique hotel. We stayed here on our honeymoon. Great location, close to everything, but on a quiet street. Rooms were small but comfortable. Breakfast here was great as well. Staff was very friendly.

Once again, I had the pleasure to stay in the House Hotel for Galway Race Week. This was my fifth consecutive year at the hotel during Race Week and I'm already looking forward to next year's visit. The House Hotel is very well located, just by the Spanish Arch and maybe 50 yards from the bottom of Quay Street. Yet... More

Love this hotel - great cocktails, great food and fantastic service. It's located right in the heart of Galway city, with shops, bars, sightseeing and great restaurants on your door step. The decor is modern and fashionable so it would be great for a girls trip away or even a couples break. Cant wait to book another weekend away here!

I had been very excited to stay in this hotel as I had heard fantastic things. Firstly I loved the decor and furnishings- quite girly and quirky. The hotel reception itself is smaller than I imagined but not an issue, just something I noticed. The bedroom was lovely and it was clean as you would expect. The bathroom light kept... More

Little jewel at the heart of Galway city. Stayed there on the first night of my honeymoon. Served food late and had a wonderful cocktail bar. Room was spacious and modern, food was tasty and portions were generous. No on site parking but facilities were close by.

My wife and I have just spent two nights at the House Hotel in Galway, Ireland (14th and 15th August 2014.) Not the cheapest place to stay in Galway but very good value for money and right in the thick of things downtown and just around the corner from the "Latin Quarter." It is about 2 minutes walk to this... More

We got slightly lost through the cobblestone streets on our way over, but once we found it we were very happy with everything during our 3-night stay. First impressions: the receptionists were friendly and helpful; the lobby was well-furnished and very pink (in a funky, trendy way); the (attached) bar atmosphere and prices were good; and the room was very...
