Eyre Square Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This hotel is in a good location in Galway - easy to find if you are driving to Galway or take the bus/train. There was a construction during the time we stayed in early December 2018, so it was loud and there's a smelling of paints all day and night. The receptionist was ok -they can answer your questions if you need to ask them something, not too friendly. The room we had was ok and just enough for two nights - basic and nothing fancy for the budget hotel. And our room was by the housekeeping room, so in the morning we can hear the maids were going in and out and slamming the door. We did not eat at the hotel, but there was a convenient store centra right across from the hotel. Hotel is not too far to walk into the city and to do sightseeing.

Hotel was perfect! Cheap and cheerful in a great location and spotlessly clean! When I'm back in Galway I would definately return here. Less than five minutes to the Latin quarter but just far enough away to avoid the noise! Ideal.

Stayed here a few times,very nice,rooms have been upgraded and are very comfortable,great breakfast choice,and great location,very reasonable prices.Galway has plenty to offer,buses are handy to hop on and off of.

This hotel exceeded my expectations! The room was newly renovated and huge in comparison to pictures. The location is perfect, the bar is great and the staff are lovely & very friendly. Will definitely stay here again. Highly recommend.

Literally not even a minute walk from the bus station and really central location to the town. Big bed and far exceeded my expectation for the price. The place was lovely and quiet during our stay and check in and out was quick. Will be back if staying in Galway again

If we go back we will be returning to Eyre Square Hotel. FANTASTIC LOCATION! RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ACTION. Perfect hotel to have an adventure around Galway. Fantastic staff. Fantastic breakfast and very cheap! The rooms are the definition of cheap and cheerful, they’re great! Decent bed, very good shower, rooms cleaned everyday, decent space so you’re not suffocating one and other, and a tv while you’re getting ready to go exploring. The Location is perfect for a Galway trip. With Galway not being the cheapest (but well worth the extra few quid) this little hotel is ideal. Right in the heart of Galway and I don’t know how the rooms are this cheap. When we return to Galway we will be staying here again. It’s the ideal place to stay if you want to be having a good shower, breaky and out.

Close to every thing in the town. It is great for the price. The only draw back is some noise issues but the location is worth it. Location is less than 1/4 mile from the bus station, train station, and City center. Multiple restaurants and things to see within 1/2 mile walk.

I arrived at the Eyre Square Hotel on a cold and rainy morning with somewhat dampened spirits and needing a one-night stay. That changed immediately after the warm and friendly reception form the front desk staff. Within minutes my room was booked and my bags secured. The room itself was clean and comfortable. The highlight, though, was the beautiful bar and its classy and professional staff. I had a pint and deliciously huge plate of fish and chips. Yes, I will go back again. This was a mid-range hotel with 5-star service.

Checked in to hotel again this month and what an excellent 3 night stay , our room was exactley what i requested. The newly renovated room was so clean and with the new walk in shower it was perfect . All the staff from reception to bar to domestic were so friendly as usual, so thank you everyone from maureen and selwyn ( wilcox)

We stay in Eyre Square hotel only one night but for sure we'll come back again. On arrival very friendly and helpful front desk staff. Our room was ready 2 hours before check in.We received key to our room. Fantastic location just beside Eyre Square you don't need taxi and you are in centre of city
