I had a group here at the begining of race week in Galway. It is an excellent boutique hotel in the heart of Galway city. All the staff were wonderful but I have to give a special shout out to Nicky (Niki?) at reception. No request was to much hassel and she met every request and question with a smile... More

We visited The House Hotel last week as we had booked in for High Tea. The experience was brilliant. We were treated so well and our High Tea was great. It was lovely to have High Tea out in the Foyer where it was so relaxing. Service was great and food was fresh. A beautiful hotel located very close to... More

Stayed here with my husband and parents, and we all enjoyed our stay. The hotel on entering during the day can be a bit of a shock due to the vivid pink colour scheme. However in the evening it is a very relaxing setting. We paid for deluxe rooms which were ok in size, but I think a standard double... More

They say when you've got it, flaunt it and my god this hotel has got it. When I arrived to Galway for a few days on business from New York some would say we might expect to much, I guess standards on hotels in New York can be high, but when arriving at the house hotel in Galway last week,... More

Gorgeous quirky boutique hotel in the centre of Galway. Rooms are great, if I had one critique, it would be the glass bathroom door, but it wasn't a massive deal. Cocktails at the bar were gorgeous! Great choice of breakfast and the staff are friendly and attentive. Would definitely come back here again. Most likely with a group of girls!

My husband and I stayed two nights at this hotel. We enjoyed Galway and this hotel. Breakfast was fantastic, fast service, lots of choices, and fresh good bread! The hotel room was clean, bed was comfortable, and the room itself was modern and colorful. If you are looking for a view this is not the place to stay. However, this... More

What a super boutique hotel. More suited to the young and young at heart. Only one lift and wheelchair access is not that easy to get to. Lift broke down (overheated!! )when we were there and we had a 100 year old with us... she missed the press and get together of a film premier that she was in because... More

This was our third attempt at staying here – sick children having scuppered previous attempts. Worth the wait! The hotel is excellent and the location is top notch – literally around the corner from Quay Street. Whilst there is no parking on site there is a discounted rate available in Hynes multi storey car park a few minutes' walk away.... More

My sisters and friends stayed here for a one night visit. The location was perfect. The food was amazing. The staff were friendly and efficient. The rooms were spotless and comfortable. The overall atmosphere was great. The decor is fresh and exciting!!! Would highly recommend it to anyone staying in Galway!!
