My boyfriend and I stayed here recently and had a great time. The hotel is very centrally located. Rooms are very modern and contemporary. There was a good choice at breakfast and I really enjoyed my vegetarian breakfast though my boyfriend thought his breakfast had been cooked for sometime. Ideal for couples and girlfriends as this is a real girly... More

Liked the hotel. Rooms small & a little over priced but location is perfect so that outweighs the negatives. However the bathroom door is ridiculous. No privacy. It's frosted glass but has a large gap around it & doesn't close properly. I would recommend this hotel to stay in but DEFINITELY NOT to eat in. Our meal was atrocious. There... More

We were in a group of 15 touring Ireland last week, and stayed at The House Hotel on the 8th October, just for one night - wish it could have been longer. Super hotel - lots of bright pink! Great location, just near to Galway Bay. Super room - everything very modern. We dined in the restaurant and had breakfast... More

Arrived on a sunday evening to chill out and would certainly make the trip back again. The front desk staff are lovely, as is the hotel and the voucher for 2 free cocktails was a lovely touch. We were looked after extremely well and will certainly recommend this hotel to any friends travelling to Galway in the future!

I recently had the pleasure of staying at the House Hotel for one night to celebrate a special occasion.The hotel's location is fantastic and within walking distance to everything. The bedroom décor was beautiful, the bed was very comfortable and loved the bath tub in our room. Our room was so spacious which is rare for a city centre hotel.... More

Despite arriving on a Saturday when the place seemed to turn into one big hen party,the room was very quiet and we weren't disturbed once. The bed was comfortable, bathroom nicely finished if a bit on the dark side. LED spot lights aren't the best when looking in the mirror although after a night sampling the pubs of Galway it's...

The location of this hotel is great. There was lots to see and do nearby. The bed was comfortable, room was decent-sized, and I liked the quirky decor. Despite the double windows, however, it was loud in our room, especially with street sweeper or something similar at 6am that went on for quite a while. Additionally, parking situation is not...

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
