Had a lovely night away in the Meyrick hotel last week. The hotel itself could not be located in a better place in Galway, everything is within walking distance of eyre square, so you've got to love that.
A couple of slightly minor low points include the pay parking (€6 per 24 hours) which was good enough considering the city center location. Our room (room 203) was very small for a hotel room, the bathroom was large enough, but the bed was quite small, and I think it may have been sized to make the room look larger.
The hotel itself has a feeling of slightly faded grandeur, which is not a bad thing, and my wife said it reminded her of when she stayed in the Gresham in Dublin with her mother.
The highlight of our stay was the breakfast, which I have to say was probably the best I have ever had in a hotel, we had to wait for a few minutes to be seated in the dining room for brekkie, all the usual stuff was there, with a selection of cereals, pastries, and the full Irish stuff with sausages, rashers, beans, pudding etc. But the real delight lay in the menu which had to be ordered from the waitress, we asked for the 'fish of the day' which was a fillet of Salmon (before 10 in the morning!), along with scrambled egg. Absolutely top class, really set you up for the day. It is probably the first time ever that I have not had the Irish brekkie, but so enjoyed my salmon, I felt like Pat Short, having the dinner at 8 so we could have a good run at the day!
Staff were very helpful, and after checkout they allowed us to leave our bags in the hotel, as it was lashing rain outside.
