The location is in a great place. Walking distance from great shopping, pubs, and food. Our room was tiny. *tiny*! We payed a ton for it. Twice as much as the huge castle room we stayed in the night before. It was outdated and a little dirty. The staff was nice. When we left the window open it smelled like a mixture of fried and Chinese food. When it was closed it was too hot. Find a b&b. it'll be better. I promise.

We weren't looking for the Hilton but this was a lovely old hotel 50 years ago.
Now, not so much.
Staff tried to put us on a smoking floor, then because we had prepaid, we had to settle for a room that just smelled of air deodorizer permanently!
We left a day early.
Be wary of any reviews above a 3.

Stayed here a few months ago, fabulous hotel, very clean, and the location is spot on! All amenities are on your door step. Galway is such a safe, busy city and not too big and this hotel was perfect for my stay. The staff were also very polite and were only too willing to answer my questions about attractions and great places to eat. This hotel is beautiful and I had the best time here. Thank you to all at the Eyre Square Hotel for making my trip to Ireland great!

The location of this hotel could not be more perfect. It is steps from the bus station, the tourism office, great pubs/shopping/restaurants- I was shocked to find that after being on a bus for three hours from Dublin airport that I literally needed to walk 1-2 minutes to the hotel.

The room that I stayed in was big, well decorated, had nice furniture, a comfortable bed and a large clean bathroom. After staying in small hotels throughout Ireland and the UK for three weeks I was delighted to see a nice sized bathtub in the room too. The front desk staff were very nice and helpful. I would absolutely stay in this hotel again. The only (minor) downside is that if you don't book a room that includes breakfast you will be paying 10 euro to eat in the morning because not even a continental breakfast is included in the lowest room rates. This wasn't a problem for me because I picked up something in the store directly across the street on most mornings when leaving for tours. They have free wifi that works well.

Room Tip: If you don't want to hear music from the pub across the street ask for a room that doesn't f...
