We stayed at Hotel Meyrick May bank holiday weekend as we had a family wedding. We were worried about parking when we first arrived but there is plenty spaces around the corner in the bus/train station car park and reasonably priced for the day considering you are in the heart of Galway City. The hotel is beautiful and full of character. The staff are really nice and take the time to check you in. We were very lucky as we were upgraded as we were staying a couple of nights and the room or should I say rooms were fabulous. If you like a building with history then this is the place to stay. The high celling, big door entrances and classical decor would win you over. I really loved this stay and would love to return to take advantage of the spa and roof top pool.
The food was lovely and the staff at the breakfast were very attentive and very good in making sure you had enough toast or tea/coffee etc... The bar food is on the expensive side but as mentioned before you are in Galway city.
There are some disadvantages the room was very warm when we stayed and there was no air con so we did have to open windows and being on Eyre's square it was very noisy late at night but hey you are in the middle of the city, It didn't bother me but if you are a light sleeper you might want to pack earplugs. Also the reception desk is located at the right hand side of the entrance hidden away which didn't really make much sense but that is just what I thought.
Considering what we paid I thought the stay was 5 star...
