“Great location! Great Breakfast! Great Value!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2010

The Park House Hotel was in a great location in Galway. Down the street from the train station. Location was perfect for walking into town for shopping and dining. Rooms were very nice and the breakfast was wonderful! Friendly service and a garage to park your car. Great value! Fun Bar - Murty Rabbitt's across the street!

This hotel is old and without any charm. Bathroom had chipped tiles and very old bath tubs. We had a smoking room because we didn't specify what type of room we wanted when we booked. It was an oversight on our part but the hotel didn't have any air freshener. Some of the staff were nice but not everyone. This hotel has many American tourists, very boring and not worth the money.

Loved it! Effortless class, super staff, wonderful atmosphere. Large, impressive rooms with great bathrooms. Not stuffy in any way – just very friendly and very polished service. Great breakfast. Already planning a return trip. Got a great deal through their own website that included breakfast and parking.

Just returned from my trip to Ireland, and enjoyed this hotel so much I had to write a review. The hotel staff were wonderful, always willing to help out (called for reservations,and helped locate a missing camera). I has misplaced my camera on a day tour and they called the company and asked them to check the bus for the camera. A few hours later the front desk called to say the camera had been delivered to the front desk (The Galway Tour Company was also wonderful). The hotel is beautiful, I enjoyed sitting in the lobby in the morning with a cup of coffee reading the local paper (delivered to your room each day). The rooms were clean and very comfortable. I ate at the pub and enjoyed my meal. The location can't be beat, close to restaurants, pubs and the bus station. Free wifi which was great for keeping intouch with family back home. I will come back again, and would recommend this hotel if staying in Galway.

Galway was the last stop of my week-long vacation to Ireland, and I had developed high standards for quality and service because my two previous hotel visits in Ireland were among the best. The Park House Hotel is a very good hotel, but it is not the best. The bathrooms were not as clean as I expected them to be.

The best part of this hotel is its location on Eyre Square, the free parking, and friendly service from the hotel staff. The room and bathroom cleanliness could use some improvement. Overall it offers a good value.

Stayed for just one night at the end of January to be close to transport to Dublin the following day. We really regretted that we had only one evening at The Park House because it was, without exception, one of the best hotels we have stayed in in a long time. The service was charming and welcoming, the room was very clean and attractive and the breakfast excellent. We will definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Galway city. Good location and good value.

Stayed Fri and Sat departing on Sunday. The Park House was an excellent choice for a short break. The Hotel and accomodation was of an excellent standard, and the staff were some of the most friendly and welcoming I have encountered. The food in the restaurant was superb and the whole ambience makes this a very welcoming location.
