Close walk to pubs. Parking is a bit of a disaster but there is a night person to play Tetris with your car and move it out.

Nice Hotel

This hotel has a great location near all of the main shops and restaurants in town. The free parking is located in the basement of the hotel, which was great. Parking seemed to be very limited in this busy part of town, so this was a very nice feature and it is easy to get your car out when leaving.

Good location and value for money

Booked 3 rooms here - all quite good - clean, view on the street and sea side. Breakfast was very good here - a lot to choose from. The staff are friendly and helpful. Very tight with parking - had to way long to park the car and get it back, but was sorted well. The TV has a very poor selection of channels and had interruptions in work.

Girly getaway in Galway

The four of us shared a room at the Western and it was surprisingly spacious and comfy (two twins and one double). Upon arrival, our initial room had not been cleaned yet so we notified staff immediately. They were apologetic and embarrassed...got us sorted into a clean room right away. Breakfast was also lovely. Great location, decent price - would stay again!

Absolutely loved our accommodations!

We arrived pretty late and only had one night here, but we wished we had more time at this wonderful place. The location was ideal, the breakfast superb, and the staff was most helpful. Could 't have been better.

It was fine, nicely furnished room, nice view down the hill, nice staff etc, except room was very small and the walls were very thin and the neighbours were very noisey all night long (Too embarred to be more specific)

Very comfortable and clean.

Centrally located near city center and within walking distance to shops, restaurants etc. Clean and comfortable room and bath. Exceptionally helpful and friendly staff. Had a great breakfast as well. Breakfast and car parking included in room price -- great deal! Overall, a good quality and comfortable stay with a clean, spacious bedroom and bath. I would definitely stay here again.

Very charming hotel

This hotel is a very short walk, about 3-5 minutes, to JFK Park and all the bars, restaurants, shopping, etc. The hotel is old, but updated and very charming. The rooms appear to all be different. We had a fake fireplace and an oil painting in our room. The staff is very friendly, parking is free, an excellent breakfast is free and they gave us a coupon for something like a bottle, of wine, two 3 course meals for 38 euro. And the food was good! I would stay here again

Wonderful Gesture Equals Great Vacation

The stay far exceeded my expectations. We arrived early, well ahead of check-in time and hoped to just leave our luggage with the hotel unitl our room was ready. Instead the attendant at the desk offered us an apartment suite for our entire weeks stay at our same rate. This was the most wonderful vacation as a result.
