Excellent quirky accommodation in the heart of the city. Reception was extremely friendly and accommodating and the hotel had a lovely relaxing atmosphere and we would definitely return. A minor criticism of the hotel relates to the layout of the dining area. When we returned from eating in town, we entered through the back of the hotel where there was... More

At first I wasn't so sure I liked the Alice in Wonderland motif, but the rooms were comfortable and quiet. The location is fantastic for walking to a multitude of restaurants and pubs. Above all, the staff were very warm and accommodating. I was travelling with two young nieces who were made to feel quite welcome. The restaurant was really... More

What a fabulous hotel! Very stylish yet totally warm and friendly. We spent two nights here and just loved it. Our room was quite large and very comfortable. Breakfast was fantastic-delicious hot food made to order and a cold buffet that even featured a meat & cheese board. The staff couldn't be lovelier. When I went to the front desk... More

Great place and fantastic location near the City Center of Galway. The Hotel is "quirky" but in a real nice way. Very clean and a great place to eat. The rooms were great and the staff wonderful. You cannot be in a better location!

This was my second time to stay at The House Hotel and this time it was even better! On checking in with the very pleasant receptionist, I was told that I had been upgraded to a Super Deluxe room! This was a mother/daughter visit and we were delighted to have all that lovely extra space! The room was huge with... More

If I could give zero stars I would, the afternoon tea was a disaster staff very rude and incompetent. 24 hour notice is required (you're paying 20euro+ for a few bland sandwiches and a scone and a few sweets, hardly a big ask?) we were also met with criticism that we asked for a vegetarian sandwich for my sister. We... More

Its a nice hotel, rooms get cleaned daily and there's a fresh bottle of water waiting for you when you get back from sightseeing in wonderful Galway..the hotel is located near the ocean, but there is no ocean view. Great hotel, nice people, a bit on the pricy side though.
