Well, when checking out, Sharon at the Reception asked me to give them a review on Tripadvisor and I promised I'd gladly do.
First, to have asked for a review shows that they actually take people's comments serious. I read a lot of reviews and comments before settling for Flannery's. I was going to stay for a month and I didn't want to have any reason to be changing hotels. I've used Travelodge, Galway before and I had to change to another B and B in less than a week
Flannery is by far my best experience so far. Less than 50 euro per night with full Irish breakfast. It was a kind of buffet breakfast and the restaurant staff were quite very friendly and quickly responsive. So was the front desk staff. I asked for some ice one night and I got a bucket full of ice in less than 10 minutes. They not only make you feel welcome but treat you like you're their most important guest, despite that they have several hundreds of guest at any given time.
My room was neatly cleaned out everyday. I liked dropping my swipe key at the reception so I can enjoy taking it back from Jacinta or Sharon with their lovely smiles and friendly dispositions.
I could go on and on but I must say my experience at Flannery's was altogether a pleasant one. I don't think I'd be sleeping anywhere else when next I'm in Galway. And, I can only wish they're in Dublin and elsewhere as well.
Note: If you're not driving, it's a bit out of the city centre, might be a good 15/20 mins walk to city centre.
