“Very nice stay in Galway”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

Stayed here for one night during our trip to Galway. Very fast check-in and check-out time which is important for me. The hotel is approximately five minutes walk into the city center which makes it a perfect location - Not too busy yet easily accessible. 24 hour parking for seven Euros just a few meters away.
The decor in the public areas is a bit overwhelming with a lot of pink and red colors, but the rooms on the other hand were more subtle and modern.
Plenty of breakfast options all included in the room charge. Both a la cart and buffet.
Employees were all very friendly and you felt both welcome and relaxed.

We stayed at The House Hotel for a hen weekend, the check in was very quick and easy, rooms are gorgeous. The location is fantastic and close to lots of the main areas.
We did a cocktail class there, the bar staff were great and really got everyone involved.

Myself and my wife stayed here for our anniversary last month and I have to say the experience was fantastic. The location is perfectly situated in Galway City. Our room was huge with a great view but best of all were the staff. We were treated so well by the staff during our stay it immediately made me want to come back. We had so much fun chatting with the bar manager, john I think was his name. Was convinced he owned the place the way he looked after us! My advice, check this place out. It won't disappoint.

I attended the Galway Bloggers Party at the House Hotel last Saturday.
Quite simply it took my breath away.
I LOVE their quirky styling, pleasant staff and bar par excellance.
I felt so welcomed and I was gobsmacked when all of a sudden a live fashion show paraded right through the front lobby.
G Hotel watch your back as the House Hotel Galway is definately on my TOP GALWAY HOTEL list.

I would like to thank the House Hotel for helping pull off a fantastic day for the 'Galway Bloggers Party' which I hosted there yesterday. The team really worked together to help pull off all the stops and anything I wished to discuss for the event, they were more than happy to accommodate and organise for the day. The venue for the Galway Bloggers Party could not have been better, all the bloggers were so impressed with how perfect the House Hotel is; a fashion/beauty bloggers ideal hotel! This event was taking place on a very busy Saturday in the hotel and they were more than accomodating in reserving the full lobby area for this private event, rearrangig the furniture to suit the event and helping to co-ordinate a fashion show and pop-up shops from companies which went on from 1pm - 4pm. The House Hotel, is great for these day-time events and I would definitely consider hosting the next Galway Bloggers Party there again as everything was so well organised.

After staying in a few chain hotels The House Hotel was an unexpected but delightful change. Great location and great rooms. All the staff greeted us every time like we were returning visitors. Would definitely recommend it to anyone.
