Dear Valued Guest,
Thank you for leaving your comments via Tripadvisor following your recent stay with us.
We appreciate all comments and thank you for your positive review.
We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
Once again, I had the pleasure to stay in the House Hotel for Galway Race Week.
This was my fifth consecutive year at the hotel during Race Week and I'm already looking forward to next year's visit.
The House Hotel is very well located, just by the Spanish Arch and maybe 50 yards from the bottom of Quay Street. Yet despite this central location, the hotel offers a very calming and relaxed environment - even during Race Week, which is some achievement! Certainly, the hotel's decor is a welcome change to the other city centre hotels in Galway - most of which I have stayed in.
The public areas of the hotel are very vibrantly decorated yet equally comfortable. The hotel's bar and restaurant is very good and the cooked-to-order breakfast excellent, with a wide offering. Equally, the bedrooms are very comfortable with bright and well-designed bathrooms. I slept soundly on all five nights of my stay.
However, what really sets the hotel apart is the staff. I cannot praise Margaret and her team enough, ensuring that my stay was, once again, memorable. The staff are welcoming and professional - nothing seems too much trouble. All of my contact with the staff, from check in to check out, was perfect. The welcome is better than any other hotel I have stayed in.
All told, I cannot recommend this gem of a hotel enough. I've stayed in many of Galway's hotels, both during Race Week and during other visits, and the House Hotel is without doubt my hotel of choice in what is a tremendous city.
Dearest Return Guest,

Love this hotel - great cocktails, great food and fantastic service. It's located right in the heart of Galway city, with shops, bars, sightseeing and great restaurants on your door step. The decor is modern and fashionable so it would be great for a girls trip away or even a couples break. Cant wait to book another weekend away here!

Love, love, loved this hotel. Beautifully decorated, staff was very professional and helpful, and loved the location as well as the restaurant/bar area. traveling from the United States we loved the air conditioning and the walk in shower for my mom who is 82 years young. the shower is most important allowing my mom privacy in her own room within having to climb into a tub to shower. All newly decorated and enjoyed the breakfast package with the room before we headed out for site seeing each day. Front desk was very helpful with our travel road maps and recommendations about the roads. Will definitely recommend and stay here again.

I had been very excited to stay in this hotel as I had heard fantastic things.
Firstly I loved the decor and furnishings- quite girly and quirky.
The hotel reception itself is smaller than I imagined but not an issue, just something I noticed. The bedroom was lovely and it was clean as you would expect. The bathroom light kept flickering however on and off however it obviously didn't bother us that much that we felt the need to complain about it.
The food was fantastic. Breakfast was probably the best breakfast I've ever had in a hotel. Lots of options too. We had dinner one of the nights too and it was very nice , I'd definitely eat here again.
However the price is quite high to stay here.. Although prices in Galway are expensive especially in the summer and it is in a prime location. Having to pay for parking while paying such high hotel prices was a let down.
All in all though I really enjoyed the House Hotel and it's fantastic location!
Thank you for taking the time to leave your comments via tripadvisor.
We are delighted to hear you enjoyed the lovely decor in our Lobby area and we too love pink here at The House. Even our Receptionists uniform is a funky pink!
Thank you for your positive feedback re cleanliness of your bedroom and also for mentioning the problem with flickering light in the bathroom. We have checked lights in all bathrooms immediately & resolved an issue.
I will pass on your compliments also to our chef’s who enjoy hearing all comments from our valued guest.
As a centrally located Hotel unfortunately we do not have our own car park. ‘Hynes Yard’ Multi-storey Car Park which we have an arrangement with is located only 100 yards away from our Hotel and it offer reduced rate of €7.00 for 24h to our guests.
We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.
