Reviewed September 25, 2013

I have stayed at the Park House Hotel a few times before which is why I returned again on my recent trip. The hotel ambience, quality of furnishings, cleanliness is all excellent, but the reason I like it most is the friendly and helpful staff and excellent service. The location is perfect for exploring Galway and the breakfast offers a wide selection with a hot cooked breakfast as well.

Beautiful lobby and restaurant area. Rooms were just like average hotel. Had to pay to park quite a distance away. Did not eat in restaurant. Looked really fancy. Wasn't in mood to dress up. Very close to shop street with all the shops, pubs and resturants.

This hotel was very convenient . The parking garage entrance was just across the street from the bus station. Easy to navigate when taking the express bus from Dublin airport. It is an old time looking hotel. Comfy and relaxing. It is not the "happening place" but enough of lively venues are nearby if that is what you are looking for.
After a. Long flight from the US and bus ride from Dublin, I was really looking forward to checking into the hotel and having a shower when I arrived at noon. Checkin was not until late in the day, I think 4 pm. I have had so many places that have allowed early checkin, I was disappointed by this. I believe there was an option to ask for early check in if available for a little more. Think I did that online but not sure. I would call the hotel in the future to ask as the staff seems very helpful and I believe they would try their best.
Breakfast was good. Dinner was average. The staff was very nice. Some service staff a little new but helpful and kind. I slept well except for some middle of the night guests who we noisy in the hallway each night.

Very nice typical Irish hotel with lovely decoration and attention to detail. The location is great. Friendly service but the rooms need more attention. Our shower did not work and we had to take a bath. The faucet did to work very well and needs maintenance. The TV is a little bit old but no major issue. The food quality during dinner was OK but not wow. Breakfast service and food was very good.

We thought mid-week in September would mean no troubles finding accommodations in a city as large as Galway. Our mistake, but fortunately, after several futile attempts, Sam found us the last two rooms at the Park House Hotel. And, what rooms they were - large, well furnished, comfortable beds, and a great bathroom. As good as the room was, the breakfast was even better. We had many good ones on our trip around Ireland, but the Park House breakfast was the best. Sam also recommended Kierwin's for our evening meal. A terrific place to eat, but be sure to make reservations. The walk through Old Town to get there was delightful. Sam and the Park House Hotel - a stroke of luck for us.

I rarely ever write a review of a hotel but this made an exception for all the wrong reasons.Found this hotel to be old fashioned and stuck in a time warp to be honest.The televisions were like from a bad 1950's era,also the food was just ok,service slow but fake friendly,also if you are between the age of 20-50 this hotel is not for you.The only thing decent from this hotel is its location.I have been to many hotels and this was extremely disappointing.

We ate at the Park Restaurant this evening and it was a wonderful surprise. We are not having much luck finding a restaurant near our hotel so we walk to Eyer's Square there we saw the menu for the Park Restaurant. They were able to seat us immediately. Service was great and the food even better. We had the Dover Sole special and loved every bite.
