We really enjoyed our stay in The Skeffington Arms and we found the location to be its number one asset as well as the lovely bar, modern rooms and friendly staff. We got a room overlooking Eyre Square which was very large and modern looking with nice wooden floors.
We ate dinner in the bar and our waiter was friendly and chatty. We had Chicken wings and Caesar salad to start which were both very good and the Sirloin Steak was really tasty and very reasonably priced.
The full Irish breakfast was great, the mushrooms and black pudding were very tasty and it was nice to get two 2 eggs. The homemade scones at breakfast were the nicest I have ever tasted and I nearly did not even try them because they were so big I did not want to waste them. I would return to this hotel any time I am in Galway just to try these scones again.
I would recommend this hotel and return to The Skeffington Arms if I wanted to stay in Galway city or especially if I wanted to spend some time shopping as it really is so convenient and central.
