My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights and found it a great base to explore Galway from. It's a short walk into city centre but much quieter. The room was comfortable and clean and we enjoyed the delicious breakfast! We also ate in the restaurant one evening and it was great. Would stay again if in the area.

We had the lentil curry and rice as well as the fish and chips. Both were good. They offer spacious seating with a lot of room around the tables. The service is friendly but the servers are kept busy handling many requests at once. It's a place to sit and relax while enjoying your meal, they don't rush you at... More

Nice roomy restaurant and bar. Different rooms give it a nice relaxed atmosphere with plenty of room. One area has TV screens, great for Sports fixtures. In the next area you cannot hear the TV so really suitable for all occasions. Nice menu - very hard to decide what to have as all choices are so good. Great choice of... More

Fabulous 3-night stay. Great family room and food to die for whether it be breakfast, lunch or dinner topped by excellent/friendly service from all the staff. You won't find better anywhere let alone in Galway. A defo for the next stay in Galway especially as it's in a great location to.

I have had food in this restaurant quite a lot, as it is very close to where I work. I think the first time was there it was 2 years ago, and within 2 years the menu has only changed slightly. However, the food is very inconsistent, what you get today might be something very different next week. (different vegetables... More

Pros: Easy parking outside of central Galway. Good restaurant downstairs. Modern and spacious rooms. Big bathrooms. Cons: No air conditioning. Very poor wifi connection in our room. Our friends had good wifi in their room so it must not work in every room.
