We stayed in the Western in Galway in one of their apartments which are a short walk from the main hotel.
I can’t really comment on the hotel itself but I can tell you that the apartments are luxurious, modern and exceptional value for money.
Our apartment had stunning views over the city, the floor to ceiling windows add a feeling of space and the decor made me want to come home and redecorate. The apartment had two bed rooms, one was en suite with a balcony the other was a reasonable size but no balcony or en suite. That said the main bathroom is only across the hall. The apartments that they are not serviced – make your own bed.
The apartments have all you need, if you want to cater at home – crockery, cutlery, cups etc. The oven was a bit complicated we could only ever make the top one work, but it did the trick.
Honestly if there are four of you and you are going to Galway, this is the place to stay!
The location is also fantastic two minutes from the main square, close to the pubs and shops. There is a pub called the Galway Shawl just across the road – the name would lead to believe that you were about to enter a traditional pub complete with Irish music and dancing. Think again! Nothing could be further from the truth, check it out, we stayed for a few drinks and were so entertained by the locals – but be prepared to be shocked!
The hotel administers the apartments and the staff are friendly and helpful.
