I'll start out with a caveat: we had already dropped off our Budget rental car by the time we checked into Park House Hotel, so cannot comment on the hotel's parking accommodations or cost. It is rather a nightmare to drive and park in Galway so we put this city at the end of our 8 weeks in Ireland and are staying at Park House Hotel for 4 nights then taking the train to Dublin for the final day of our trip. The location of Park House Hotel is ideal: right next to Eyre Square and central to all the places we wanted to visit on a short trip. Yet, our 'superior' room was quiet (no street noise), well ventilated (windows that open), spacious, full of natural light, very clean, nicely furnished had comfortable beds. The bathroom had a tub/shower and heated towel rack and was very clean. The ground floor lounges are spacious and comfortable. The staff are polite and helpful. One night we had a problem with one of the electric outlets and a porter was at door to fix the problem within 3 minutes. We paid a rate that included breakfasts and was a 20% discount for staying 3 nights or longer. Hotel and B & B prices tend to be on the high side in Galway city - for even a quite bad hotel (and without breakfast) you might pay 80 euros a night. So I figure the rate we paid for Park House gave us good value for the money. We were very comfortable. The breakfasts were ample and well prepared. The tables for two are definitely too small for two to eat in comfort, however -- try to get one of the booths. Across the street is a small grocery/convenience store which we found to be very handy. Also across the street is a small garden cafe that serves excellent espresso coffee and fresh squeezed fruit juices. The Budget Car Rental office is 1/2 block away and the train/bus station is a block and a half away.
