“Conveniently located is the main attraction”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2014

The Hotel Meyrick is an older hotel convenient to shopping, restaurants, and pubs in the area. However, it shows its age and although satisfactory I would choose another place to stay in the Galway area that was close to the same area. The hotel is located across the street from a park populated with many young people as a "hang out" which can be uncomfortable walking through at night. The hotel is supposedly rated at 4 stars and we had what was called a Classic Double room and it was alright but I would not put it in the 4 start category. The breakfast was good with a reasonable choice but not extravagant and the staff was friendly with good concierge service.

Dear Robert M

Thank you for taking time to write this review, all our guest feedback is very important to us and is taken in a constructive manner.
We are glad that you have enjoyed so many things about our hotel, such as our location, service and food I will be happy to let the staff know
Regarding the park across the road from the hotel, sure a lot of young kids come and play their skate boarding and just hanging out, but believe me there is never any issue with them.
Your comments regarding the room not been 4 star have been taken on board

Thank you once again for your review and we hope to welcome you back soon.

Kind Regards

Nothing not too like about this hotel. We stayed on the executive floor with a lovely room overlooking the city. Lovely added extras which you would expect paying a bit more for a touch of luxury. Loved the fire next to the sofas in reception. We looked at the spa facilities but didn't get the time to use them - the hot tub looked inviting though. Great location for exploring Galway. Breakfast was lovely .. Lots of lovely cakes on offer.

My boyfriend and I recently stayed here and had the most amazing time. From the second we went in we were made feel welcomed and as if we were VIPs. The staff went above and beyond for us. Loved the car valet service and getting the car back was so quick. The service in the bar was outstanding also. The decor of the hotel is beautiful, very old world, timeless. The open fire in the lobby was lovely since it was such a wet weekend. The room we stayed in was so nice, the bed was comfortable and the room was warm. We were on the 5th floor at the back of the hotel, would have loved to be looking over Eyre square, hopefully next time because I'm sure we'll be returning. One negative, which did not take away from our stay at all, was that for a 4 star hotel I did think we would get more than just a bar of hand soap in the bathroom, a shower gel would have been nice but since the location was so central it was no problem going to a chemist to get one. Overall, the hotel is wonderful, can't recommend it enough.

A complimentary upgrade to an executive room got our stay in the Meyrick off to a promising start. Overlooking Eyre Square, the room was spectacular and very, very spacious. Service was flawless. Breakfast, the table d'hôtel dinner and drinks in the bar were first rate. The hotel is such a fine historic building. Just one feature let it down - the pair of couches in the lobby beside the fire are shabby & need to be "retired"

Got a great deal through the Rewarding Times. The location is perfect for walking Galway city (and Salthill). The train station is just around the corner. The suite was an excellent size - lots of places to sit and read and to write. The room and the bathroom were spotlessly clean. The power in the shower was fantastic. The Hotel Meyrick have recently opened a new bar/bistro on the ground floor and we were very happy with our trips there. The hotel service is efficient - a little clinical at times. We had the set dinner the first night and we dined elsewhere the second night. We were very happy with our choice of white and red wine. However the food in general lacked flavour and seasoning ..... and the hot food was not served hot. The Head Chef needs to start sampling his own food. The breakfast is ok. The juices are not freshly squeezed. The breakfasts are pre-cooked. Just not our cup of tea. The staff waiting on tables were very friendly. I had one trip to the spa - the lovely girl attending to me had a head cold and I felt that she should not have been at work! This could be a great place to stay in Galway.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that does not face onto Eyre Square.

Booked a standard double room for a weekend. Told the hotel ahead of time it was our first weekend away together and anything they could do to make our stay more enjoyable would be much appreciated.

Parked in front of the hotel. Porter insisted on carrying our bags upstairs, parked our car and gave us a quick run-down on the best eateries and pubs in Galway.

Upon opening our door, we realised we had been upgraded to a suite from a double room!

Ate in the hotel both nights. Food was delicious, bar staff were very friendly and genuine.

Couldn't recommend Hotel Meyrick highly enough!
