“Great location, lousy night's sleep”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

I booked this hotel due to its fantastic location but was sorely disappointed. Must have been my worst hotel experience in Ireland. Bed was uncomfortable, mattress was literally in tatters, bed linens were clean but torn and the service was appalling. The first night drunk guests were banging on all other guests' doors well past three in the morning and were being quite aggressive. Hotel staff did nothing to remedy the situation, despite myself and neighbouring rooms calling down to complain. I was offered a different room the next day, which considering the fact I was leaving that day was odd to say the least. Service at breakfast was slow and not very friendly, coffee was quite really not good at all. Considering the price this hotel charges I was not prepared for such a bad experience.

Room Tip: If you do decide to stay at this place, which I would heartily recommend you do not, you hear street...

Nice enough hotel. Great location, not far from train station, which is the way we travelled from Dublin to Galway. We did change rooms because the first one was right across from the elevator and it was noisy. Elevators were tiny, and there were a couple of "hen parties" occupying the hotel, so it was pretty crazy in there, but that's Galway for you. Best party town in Ireland, even for us old folks.

I stayed in the Eyre square Hotel for two nights with my partner. I payed 49 euro per night which is an absolute steal. Spotless clean, extremely friendly and helpful staff. Warm rooms and hot water at all hours. The location is fantastic. Right in the middle of eyre square but it still remains quite at night which I was surprised with. Overall a great stay and would reccomend it to everyone.

Room Tip: Rooms 209 was at the back of the hotel so it was quite at night. Everything worked and spotless clea...

Excellent hotel very clean. Room great staff very helpful and great craic. Breakfast freshly cooked and gorgeous. Very impressed and will certainly go back. Much more personal than big hotels. Great location and near to all amenities. Would highly recommend.

Room Tip: Choose room at back as front is quite noisy.

My husband Christy and I have just spent 3 days at this hotel. The location is great it is right in the middle of the city. The receptionist was very friendly and pleasant on check in and during our stay. The staff in the dining room were excellent and so helpful. The full Irish breakfast was fantastic. The bed and room was very comfortable and warm.

Stayed here the first night of our 9 day Ireland trip. Location was convenient to walk to the shops and food. Not great for sound. Pretty loud, especially since its next to a bus station that makes announcements all night. The staff was very pleasant. At first our water kettle wasn't working and they quickly came up to replace it. Also gave us good suggestions and directions for restaurants. I will mention that if you park on the side of the building DON'T drive through any big silver gates towards the back of the alley. Because it will close behind you and you will get locked in. Just saying.
