Galway Hotels

Kids (young adults) are staying at the Kinlay House Hostel. Husband needs good internet connection so we're looking for a hotel in vicinity of kids. Based on price and availability for 2 nights starting 5/20, some options are -

Jury's Inn (pay extra for internet access & some TA reviews say questionable access)

Harbour Hotel

Meyrick Hotel

Western Hotel

Imperial Hotel

Pillo Hotel

Or do we need to look a little higher end? Our philosophy is it doesn't need to be fancy, just clean and in a good location.

Once again, thanks for your insight!

Maybe they've fixed it? I've never heard of the PIllo Hotel, but using Google Maps it shows up as being out the Headford Road, definitely not in town. Their website starts the description with the place being "within walking distance to Galway City Centre" so that always sends up a red flag to me!

Where did you end up booking instead?

Gorey - the Pilo hotel is definetly not in that location (as you discovered). Its on the Headford road and used to be a Marroitt hotel. Its probably a 15 minute walk to the city centre
