“Return visit just as good as the last visit..”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

We visited Galway city on a Friday and Saturday night in early October 2013. We decided to make a return trip to the Hotel Meyrick in Eyre Square because of our satisfaction with the previous visits and the fantastic location of the hotel.

The room was spacious, full of little extras and a great view of Eyre Square.The car was parked for us, which meant that we didn't have to worry about it for the whole weekend. All the staff were welcoming, friendly and obliging.

We didn't have dinner in the hotel, but breakfasts were very good with a nice choice of freshly cooked options available, including a choice of fish.

This hotel is a great base from which to see the city.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking Eyre Square.

I loved this place. Our room was a suite on the 2nd floor. The rooms are opulent and full of character. I LOVED that our windows could open and we could hear the sound of the pub music off the square. I also really enjoyed the lack of airconditioning and falsely controlled air temperature. You really do get a sense of history staying here. The dining rooms and bars in the lobby are filled with character and class (without stuffiness). The location is wonderful. I will definitely be coming back.

Room Tip: Our room over looked a side street which was still wonderful.

We had booked a standard room with the understanding that some standard rooms were in the old part of the hotel and overlooking the square. So, we had requested a room on a high floor overlooking the square. On arrival we were advised that all the upgrades were gone ,we didn't realise that the rooms overlooking the square were an upgrade. We were given a room in the newer annex which did have a view of the square and was quite comfortable with the usual amenities. However I could not sleep due to the noise outside either from the hotel itself or from the bus station at the rear of the hotel . Breakfast was average and served in the dining room which needs a little attention . The highlight was the rooftop Canadian hot tub which gives great views of Galway. The staff were friendly and pleasant but we would not be keen to stay here again if we were in the annex which actually looks very ugly from the outside and spoils the whole appearance of the hotel.

Room Tip: Unless you are a very sound sleeper request a room in the main hotel. Rooms at the rear of the hotel...

Dear dustylin,

Thank you for taking time to write of your experience at Hotel Meyrick.

It was disappointing to read that the room you were allocated to was not what you have expected, we will pass your comments to our reservations team, so in the future they ensure that the room type and its location is explained clearly to our guests.
Unfortunately bus station was moved temporary on to a territory of the car park behind the hotel due to some upgrade works on the original station. So there was some extra external noise due to this fact and we apologize for that.
Your comments regarding the breakfast have been duly noted and taken on board by our management team.

Thank you once again for your review and we hope you will return to Hotel Meyrick in the near future.

Kind Regards
Hotel Meyrick

This hotel could not be in a better place for exploring Galway and I didn't meet one member of staff who was not helpful and charming including the people I had email contact with before I arrived. It's a classic hotel and well worth staying there. However, I have two observations: old hotels are hard to maintain and can look grubby sometimes (this one does in places) and the crockery at breakfast was not clean. To me these two things move the rating all the way from excellent to average because they are unforgiveable. A good maintenance programme to fix doors with loose hinges etc is basic and I'll say no more about clean crockery.

I would recommend the hotel for location but there is a Radisson Blu very close by and there's a hotel called Parkhouse even closer.

Had lunch twice here last weekend. The food, atmosphere, staff and cocktails were unbelievable. I was sad that we were not able to get a room as The Oyster Festival was on. We ended up staying at the house hotel but the Meyrick blows it out of the water. (review on The House Hotel to follow)

This is a peaceful, classy and relaxing property.

One not to be missed

Dear Robert78,

Thank you for your kind words on our service and atmosphere.

We are sorry you did not get a chance to stay with us due to our hotel being full, well we hope you will return to us again to get the full Hotel Meyrick experience. We always advise our guests to book the rooms in advance during the summer moths as with all the festivals happening in Galway City hotels do get quite busy.

There is a Galway Christmas Market coming up at the end of November, perhaps this could be a good excuse to visit Galway again.

Kind Regards

We spent 5 nights at the Hotel Meyrick and loved every minute. We had a junior suite which faced Eyre Square - the room was bigger than the 3 previous hotel rooms we stayed in on this trip combined. Very comfortable bed, luxurious furnishings and an incredible bathroom with soaking tub and shower, double sinks. Service was great from the moment we walked through the doors. A very elegant, yet comfortable property. We arrived by train, the station being immediately behind the hotel. The central location makes everything an easy stroll, especially the pedestrian areas of Shop Street, etc. Breakfast was very good too, with a wide selection and impeccable service. We were there for a wedding, which was done beautifully as well. The Oyster Bar, decorated in old New York City subway signs, is a comfortable place for tea, a drink or a quick bite to eat - he traditional vegetable soup was tasty and the oysters very fresh. We used the hot tub on the rooftop patio almost every day or evening. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
