“great hotel”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

Have stayed at this hotel several times, and am made to feel very welcome. The staff are laid back and friendly, there's a feel of the traditional Irish welcome, which you don't get much these days with formulaic staff behaviour the norm in many places. Rooms great, TV reception can vary but that's unimportant. Amazing place for the price, lovely breakfast, but good hotels are always about the staff.

Friendly run & professional service - food also highly recommended
Situated near the beach front so ideal for a walk to blow away the cobwebs from a night out in Eyre Square
Would definitely consider booking for our next trip

Great service in this hotel, very friendly at reception, and happy and ready to share a joke in the bar, and restaurant for Sunday Lunch. Bar food on Sat evening was great, with real home made chips on offer. Rooms are sufficient for purpose, could do with a little freshening up, but spotlessly clean and good size with all facilities needed. Also great value booked on line, even including breakfast in bed!!

Stayed at Flannery's this weekend. The rooms were clean , spacious and the bed comfortable. The staff were the best i have encountered in many years. Reception , bar , restaurant staff all very polite , knowledgeable and good fun. It is a 3 star venue , but would be one of the better 3* you will encounter. 3/4 of our group arrived a day late due to being snow bound at B'ham airport. When it became apparent that there maybe an issue with them also leaving Ireland for the return flight , the hotel offered them a free night's accommodation if required. Sadly it wasn't required.

Flannery's is less than a 30 minutes walk from Galway's city center, but bus stops and a big parking lot are just in front of the entrance.
My room was big, clean and quite. Well, it depends also on how loud your neighbours are, however, the busy Dublin road doesn't disturb your sleep at all.
Irish breakfast is well cooked and served, and there's also a buffet with cereals, bread, croissants, etc.
Having prepaid my stay with a web broker, I got really good value for the money.

We broke from our usual hotel as this hotel offered a better deal and we were not disappointed. Very friendly and helpful staff throughout, rooms immaculate, beds comfortable with crisp linen. Dining staff very professional and courteous. Room service quick and professionally served. Breakfast had an extensive choice and offered a generous fruit salad (i.e. good variety of fruit). We had one carvery lunch which was a little on the expensive side for the mains but reasonably priced and generous desserts. A pot of coffee was served but it tasted a bit like instant coffee. House wine served by the glass was very nice and served at the perfect temperature. The hotel seems popular with tour companies which seem to be handled with great ease. Would gladly return again.
