“Simply Fabulous!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

I stayed here recently with my husband and had a fabulous time, even though it was a weekend and the place was obviously one of the "places to be" we had a perfect nights sleep.

Such a nice welcome when we arrived, the hotel is lovely in that it's so friendly and welcoming, and the boutique feeling tops it all off! The most cosy lobby area, with interior design to die for.

The breakfast was nearly worth the trip itself, yummy :)

Recommendation: pay the extra €10pps for the upgrade, definitely worth it.

Overall - central location, friendly staff, fabulous surroundings.

Will definitely return!

Room Tip: Pay the extra €10 per person for the upgrade

Stayed here for one night and very impressed by all aspects of the hotel. Stylish and quirky. The rooms are very tasteful and are very relaxing. The bar and restaurant have a lovely atmosphere. The rates are much more favourable to other city centre hotels.

Discounted car parking rate is available for the Hynes Yard 24hr multistorey car park.

Breakfast was spot on.

Room Tip: If you can get a larger corner room go for it

Fabulous hotel, very girlie and stylish. Stayed here with ~20 others for my hen party. The staff at reception were helpful and nice. The cocktail bar is lovely and we had a great time making cocktails! They were very strong too! Breakfast was filling with a lot of choice. We had a suite and it was gorgeous plenty of room for getting ready on the girlie night out. Galway has a great atmosphere for nightlife and the location of this hotel is exellent. I would highly recommend.

This hotel was perfect for a two night stay in the lovely town of Galway. It's located just steps from the latin quarter (central pedestrian street) which provides easy access to many great bars and restaurants.

The hotel itself has a modern and quirky design which was cozy and elegant at the same time. The rooms were spacious and extremely clean.

We would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Galway.

My wife and I had a delightful, completely restful night at the House Hotel, and the breakfast buffet next morning was amazing in its range, scrumptious in every respect, with superlative service. Rarely in my experience has a hotel proved such a bargain. The room was immaculate and very comfortable, and though facing the street it was very quiet: the windows are excellently engineered. The bathroom boasted a huge tub and a forceful shower, the flat-screen television was first-rate, the mini-fridge was well-stocked. We understand that The House Hotel is unfortunately retiring its former "sleeping cat' logo, which is regrettable since it was terrifically charming; but with that minor exception this is one of the best hotel stays I can remember, at a very reasonable price.

I stayed in The House as one of a group of four in September 2012 - just for the one night. From the moment we walked in to the pink cocoon that is Reception, we were impressed. The receptionists are very friendly and welcoming and quickly showed my brother where he could park our car at a reduced rate. The rooms, though not large, are very comfortable. Two of the party decided to upgrade to a larger room and that was no problem to the receptionist. When we were on our way out to eat later that evening, we were given suggestions of where to go in the Latin Quarter which we followed and, again, were very impressed. The breakfast was delicious, again with excellent staff. The hotel is very centrally situated with everything within easy walking distance. I would have no hesitation in recommending The House Hotel.

Room Tip: This is a boutique hotel in a city so the rooms are not large but we were very happy with our standa...

I stayed here for four nights at the beginning of October, whilst on training with the company I have recently joined.
I had a very good stay, the room was well appointed, with wifi and a good flat screen. Small but functional bathroom, good sized bed, which was very comfortable, and above all very quiet.
The bar is nice, well equipped with draught Perroni and Guinness, and was a good place to hang out.
Breakfast was excellent ! There is a well stocked continental array of cold meats, lovely breads, jams, fruits and pastries, and you can also have a variety of cooked to order selections.
Location is excellent, right in the middle of town.
I'll no doubt be back in Galway for further meetings, and will be happy to make the House my home from home whilst I am there.
