Compact, economically quirky (questionable decor) unpretentious, slightly disorganised, clean, comfortable bedrooms, quality toiletries, helpful restaurant staff, unhappy disgruntled and disagreeable bar staff, confused but friendly reception staff, smiling housekeeping staff, limited fast food menus, small portions, good quality and varied breakfast menu. Expensive, we will look further afield for our next trip to Galway.

We loved staying at the House Hotel... loved it so much we ended up staying an extra evening! The hotel staff were amazing and very friendly. The breakfast was one of the best we had during our trip overseas... it was also nice being able to walk everywhere we wanted to go!

They organised a babysitter for us at the last minute on NYE who was such a lovely girl and also managed to get us a last minute reservation at a local restaurant....

A lovely boutique hotel, down by the Spanish Arch, with modern rooms, comfortable beds and seconds from Shop Street. The bar was a little quiet but the cocktails were pretty good. No concierge service but still a very...

The lounge area is quirky and colourful and I feel the nicest part of the hotel. There was a beautiful Christmas tree and a festive atmosphere. We had booked a delux double...

This was a seriously awesome stay in Galway. The hotel was filled with friendly staff from reception to the restaurant, and our room was great. The room had plenty of space and the bathroom was huge! Everything was clean and not too much noise at all - I think the location of the hotel is superb. The breakfast was very...

Wonderfully convenient amenity in room with foreign electricity switch plates (great for travelers and haven't seen in any other hotel). Wonderful and accommodating staff!

Enjoyed the afternoon tea staff were accommodating and helpful. Sandwiches were lovely though some of the desserts were dry. Had a nice afternoon all the same. Very busy location for hen parties and a lovely meeting place.
