“excellent location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2012

i recently stayed here we booked a double, a triple, and a king. All rooms were fresh bright and airy. reasonably priced and a brilliant location. very close to shopping and night life in galway. the triple room was spacious and loads of room for three people, the only difference between the king and double was the king had a bigger bathroom. will definitely stay again

We popped in here for lunch today and it was great! Decor I super cool. It felt like u were sitting in granny's sitting room. The shabby was a bit too shabby in that it felt abit dirty but other than that the concept was cool.

We had lunch and I have to say it was the best burger and goats cheese tartlet I have ever had ( and Ive true loads! ) it was def value for money. Will def eat here again

This is very central to all the shopping in Galway. Spotlessly clean and very helpful staff. All utilities worked fine. The rooms are adaquate for a shopping or base for sightseeing. Hostel prices but hotel standard so fair play. A bit noisy some nights but if you can tune this out it is very, very good value.

Stayed April 2012, traveled solo

Myself and three friends stayed for three nights and adored our room. It was the perfect size for the four of us and had a very cozy feel. We also loved Liam and all of his help was much appreciated! The location was perfect and we could walk to shops, cafes, and pubs without any difficulty.

We were directed to stay here for a wedding. It is located just behind the main town square and therefore easily accessible for the centre of the city.

This "townhouse" is located above a row of shops on a side street. The steps up to the entrance are narrow and steep. The reservation process was haphazard and led to much distress for the groom, who submitted a formal complaint. We persevered as our room was confirmed. All our friends gave up and booked elsewhere - apart from one who turned up in the evening and was advised by the receptionist to try somwewhere else, as it was likely to be noisy.

The rooms are modernly constructed with thin and poorly sound proofed walls. The wifi was patchy and television was small. The bed was comfortable.

Actually, it was noisy when we returned in the evening as some guests and taken their party to their room.

Breakfast was not included. There are a number of cafes nearby.

I stayed at the Eyre Square Townhouse with family, renting a quad room. The price was great, but word to the wise, having 4 people in that room was quite cramped. There were two double beds, a desk, and two nightstands. Once you added in four people and their luggage, it was very tight. I think it would be perfect size for 2-3 people, but for the price, I can’t complain. The bathroom and room were functional and clean. The staff that we encountered was extremely friendly and helpful. The lounge area has some seating, visitor information, and a computer with free internet. Galway is a great place if you are looking for a smaller city, but still want to do sightseeing because it is a great home base for side trips (Aran Islands, Cliffs of Moher, Connemara). I would stay here again!

Room Tip: There is not a lift and all rooms are up at least one flight of stairs.

I was a little concerned after reading a couple of reviews, but after my weekend stay there, I see why some tripadvisor reviews have to be taken with a pinch of salt, especially the one by Giilfok.
We arrived saturday afternoon and greeted warmly. We were given the choice of 2 rooms and told that at times there could be street noise from the room at the front. (expected from city centre accomodation in a lively city like Galway).
Excellent room, very clean, good size for the location and very very comfortable beds.

Townhouse does not offer breakfast, but there is a great coffee shop on ground floor andoth 5 metres away and dozens a short walk away.

At night, the door is locked, but the key code is PRINTED on a label on the inside of your key card (it would be difficult to smudge on even the worst on nights) and this is clearly pointed out to you when you arrive.

Overall a perefct little overnight stay, very welcoming and also a very pleasant checkout and we'll be staying here again.

Room Tip: room 1 & room 3 are excellent
