I visited Galway for two days and really enjoyed this hotel. It is located just on the edge the 'Latin Quarter' so it is convenient to nightlife and close to the shopping and restaurants of Galway. It is a 10-15 minute walk from Eyre Square, the bus and train station. The rooms are modernised within a mostly older warehouse type... More

Stayed for two weekend nights as part of a driving trip in western Ireland. I got a kick out of the bright, in-your-face, festive vibe of the large lobby with several seating areas. Room decor was subdued by comparison, very attractive, clean and comfortable. Staff members at the front desk and in the restaurant were friendly and helpful. The hotel... More

This is a decent hotel located in a central location in Galway. It is a boutique hotel and decorated in a kookie style and perhaps needs an update. We had a room on the first floor and you could certainly hear the music in the bar clearly. This didn't bother us but might not suit if an early night is... More

We decided to spend a night in Galway after reading "Galway Bay" by Mary Pat Kelly. Came across The House Hotel on Trip Advisor. It was primarily reviewed as a funky hotel. We found it to be pretty normal. Great staff, modern, clean and a great breakfast. There is parking nearby. If you are going to Galway, my wife and... More

We had a graduation dinner for 8 people The place is freezing as all the doors lead directly on to the street from the restraint and reception. We ordered white wine which was warm. When we told the waiter he told us that was the proper temperature for white wine. My son had a pint of Heineken and could not... More

I have stayed in the house hotel on a few occasions over the last few years and the main reason is for the location, it is very central for all the bars restaurants and shops, no taxis required, we had a larger room this stay with lots of space, had a few problems with the light switches, got sorted! girl...

My wife and I returned to The House Hotel in the Latin quarter of Galway city centre after a break of several years and were once again overwhelmed by the whole experience. The hotel has had a makeover since our last visit but had lost nine of its unique character. The service is still excellent and the food delicious. What... More

The House Hotel was very comfortable with spacious, clean rooms. Steps away from Quay Street and a short 10 minute walk to the bus/train station, the location could not have been better.

Stayed in this hotel for a hen party last night and found it perfectly suited to the occasion. Location was perfect, food was a good standard and the decor was modern, however the shower tray in our bathroom needed cleaning. Beds were very comfortable. Reception staff were friendly, however our room service tray sat outside or room for nearly two... More
