“Good hotel with a handy location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2014 via mobile

Stayed for 1 night. Clean and presentable hotel with personable staff. Car parking was easy to navigate and the car was valet parked as it was rather busy when we arrived. Room clean and tidy, bathroom in need of a refurb but essentially clean. Breakfast freshly cooked to order and plenty of choice.

Enjoyed the Park House very much. After a long day of touring Connemara the Park House was a lovely, refreshing treat. The hotel is of a very high standard and conveniently located a block from Eyre Square and the heart of old town Galway. The dining room is lovely and after a meal it is an easy 15 minute walk to the Spanish Arches. We enjoyed the Full Irish breakfasts.
The Park House is most suitable for adults and older, well behaved children.

If you plan to visit Galway for business or pleasure, there is simply only one choice for your hotel.., the Park House!
I have traveled for over 30 years and stayed at countless properties, and the Park House is a true Five Star Hotel. My first two week vacation in Ireland included a visit to Galway. As a family of three, we decided on the Park House due to the outstanding ratings on Trip Advisor, as well as the location around the corner from the train station. We planed to stay one night, then travel to Dublin by train for two nights, then back to Galway for two more nights. I emailed the Park House before we left the states asking if they could hold our luggage during our trip to Dublin, and suggest where to leave our car. The hotel mamgement responded back immediately saying they were happy to hold our luggage and would assist us with car storage upon arrival.
Arriving on our first day, the friendly staff parked our car on site, and was able to get us into a junior suite ahead of checkin time. We were very impressed with the dinning facilities and comfortable bar on the first floor, along with the decor throughout the Hotel. I could go on and on, but as you will see from other reviews, this is a truly special designation .
I would like to point out some of the personal services that truly sets this hotel apart . The attention of the staff to their guest is in my opinion, truly outstanding. A few examples..., I arrived one night late and hungry after visiting a local pub with my son. I went to the bar for something to eat. The bar had stopped serving food 30 minutes ago, but as I turned to leave, the bar man suggested he could make me a sandwich and chips if that was acceptable. I know he made an exception to policy, but I was hungry and appreciated his compassion. Another example.., I was at the desk several times over our stay and noticed the staff would offer to find rooms in other hotels for travelers unable to book at Park House, and even suggest dining locations along with staff making the reservations for the guest. On returning from Cong one day, the manager heard us tell the porter our suite number and notified us that my son had dropped a bank card earlier in the hotel. Management had left us a note in our room, but the manager left and returned with the credit card in an envelope. My son was understandably relieved.
I could continue with many other examples, but hopefully you get the point. Five stars all the way for one of the best experiences I have ever had in a hotel. Don't miss an opportunity to experience Galway's finest hotel......, the Park House !

Thanks so much to the management and staff.

Centrally located, the Park House Hotel scores highly for its service. Nothing is too much trouble for the eager to help staff in restaurant - particularly at breakfast - and in the hotel in general. Rooms are spacious, well equipped and very clean. Breakfast is a delight - the porridge a special treat, closely followed by the toast (the breads are gorgeous).

Stayed at the Park House Hotel for one night Friday, May 30, 2014.

We were attracted to the hotel because of its location in the City Centre and because of its high ratings here on Trip Advisor.

It was one of the smoothest check-ins that I've ever experienced. We parked the car in the hotel parking lot (free valet) and walked to the front desk and were greeted by some cheerful staff.
We were in our room within minutes. Large room with a King size bed, flat screen TV, nice bathroom, and super clean!

The location is perfect...easy walk to Eyre Square, Shop Street, , Spanish Arch, The Long Walk, etc. Plenty to see, do, shop, eat, and drink. Also, there is a Centra (convenience store) across the street for snacks, sundries, beer to go, etc,

We had a drink at Boss Doyle's Bar (Hotel Bar) and ventured out to explore Galway City. We had perfect weather, a sunny day, mid to high 60's on the Friday of a Bank Holiday Weekend, so the streets were jumping.

We ended up returning to the hotel hours later for dinner at the main restaurant which was also very highly rated on Trip Advisor. Dinner was excellent!! I had the Rack of Irish Lamb, and my wife had the Fresh Atlantic Lobster Salad. Both delicious!!

Breakfast the next morning was included and that was also very good...eggs made to order, not buffet style. I had the Full Irish...yummy!!

Our stay at the Park House Hotel was perfect! I only wish that we could have spent another night with them. Hopefully we will return in the future. Would definitely recommend this hotel!! They have definitely earned their number one rated position for Galway!!!

We only stayed two nights, but wished we stayed longer. Our room was modern, clean and came with a very nice porter who we needed several times :) He was always happy to help us, from turning on the shower to turning on the TV (who knew it had to be plugged in....) We asked for a quiet room, and it was very quiet all night. During the day we could hear the bus announcer, and it always made us laugh for some reason. The beds were extremely comfortable, all the staff was helpful and friendly, and the location is perfect. The main area is five minutes away, with lots of good places to eat and fun shopping. The water area, where the river meets the sea, is a nice place to hang out and watch the swans and sunset. Galway, in general, is a special place, and this hotel makes you feel very special when visiting. We also loved the breakfast and being close to the bus station when we arrived and when we took a bus tour of the cliffs. I would happily stay here again!

Stayed here for a mid-week break. Rooms were great, just a short walk and you are in the middle of galway tourist area. The bar is ok, typical hotel bar. Just lacking what you get in the local bars. Resturant was great, really enjoyed the meal. The staff made you feel welcomed from the start. Would recommend to friends and would return again.
