“Loved it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014 via mobile

Jacquie and I stayed there for 2 nights a cupla weeks ago. Really can't fault it at all. From arrival the staff were friendly and helpful. The service was perfect. The room was excellent. Food in the restaurant was excellent at night and great buffet breakfast. Only minus was when one of the staff announced he was a Chelsea supporter whilst I was watching Man City in the first half of the League Cup Final when we were 1 nil down!! Had a laugh. Will be back.

Stayed in Galway recently and we must thank Dan and the wonderful staff in the Harbour Hotel. They remembered us from our last visit which we had to cut short (flu!), and they went out of their way to make our stay memorable.
We loved that you can leave the hotel and within 5 minutes of walking be right in the heart of Galway. Looking forward getting back to Galway and the Harbour soon!

My wife and I made an impromptu overnight visit to Galway last week and we very much enjoyed out stay at the Harbour Hotel. The staff very particularly helpful and professional. The hotel is centrally located close to the amenities of the city. Breakfast was nice and WiFi was robust.

Room Tip: Our only suggestion would be to improve the power in the shower!

I stayed there for one night only . The staff were all very friendly and attentive . The bar food was freshly prepared and of very high standard . The choice and quality for breakfast was really good .
The rooms are very nice with good quality bathroom products ( unlike the cheap stuff many hotels supply)
Overall this was excellent value and I recommend it highly if you want a Galway city base

A pleasant hotel which is great value and only a short walk from Eyre Square, convenient for Galway's thriving and lively night life. Hotel is located beside the harbour in a peaceful and quiet location. Excellent staff, always welcoming and helpful. Good Breakfast and pleasant rooms.
