3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This is a great little Hotel just on the corner of Eyre Square. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was spotless and very comfortably heated as the weather was cold. Just 2 mins from Bus and Train station. the breakfast was a good selections of fruits, cereals, yoghurts etc and a substancial cooked choice as well. Overall a pleasant stay.

The Hotel was a delight to stay in, the had a great selection of breakfast food, The rooms were clean and fresh. The staff were great and you won't go thirsty staying here, Thanks again to all the staff,

Once we got our room there was a sewage smell coming from shower, I went down and spoke with the front desk to be told no rooms to move us too so they would send someone up to look at it 20 mins later no one had come and we had no phone to call front desk. I went back down and the nice young gal kept calling someone on the walkie with no response. Several minutes later a very young man came to our room and said “ you just need to run the water for a bit “. That didn’t work so he was told to put something down the drain followed by HOt water. We had to sleep with bathroom door closed and window open all night and hold your breath when going in the bathroom Next day smell was so bad again I requested a room change same young man st front desk was RUDE and said it was only a temporary fix for a long term problem REALLY. And you expect me to pay the high price for a room and to accept a bad smell

I booked Erye Square Hotel for a hen party of 30. They were the most accomadating and lovely people to deal with. Changes last min were no problem. Food was amazing also. Rooms comfortable and clean. Central location. Beside train station. Shops directly across the road and close to Galway's pubs and restaurants. Will defiantly rebook on a return visit. Highly recommend.

The hotel was nice and comfortable. There was a little noise, not bad, probably because it was Monday night after St. Patrick's weekend. Parking in structure behind hotel is close. Right down town, easy to walk to old town locations. Easy check in check out.

I was staying here with a friend back in November after our graduation from university. The hotel is a lot larger that I was initially aware of and our room was very spacious with two double beds and a good sized bathroom. The room has recently been renovated and was finished off spectacularly. The bathroom decor was out of a show room it was so beautiful and the shower was amazing. There was minimal to no noise. The location couldn't be better you are right in the heart of the city within close proximity to shops, restaurants and not too far aware from the sea either. All staff were very friendly and on hand to help!

A good value, really well located hotel. Staff are great, and our room (reasonably recently renovated) was spacious and well appointed. Super breakfast too. But the significant downside of this hotel in lovely Galway is the noise from bars all around it, which pump out loud music until 1am/1.30am. We were on the third floor of the hotel opposite the bus ranks (which were not an issue), but a bar on the ground floor with live music made sleep absolutely impossible. I find it amazing that this is allowed to happen by the authorities, and I would have thought that the hotel would make its own representations to them to silence the noise after 11pm. A real shame, as we liked everything else there, but sleep is surely something you go to a hotel for.

This was a last-minute booking for us due to a change in travel plans, but needed a reasonably priced room for one night near the Galway Bus Station - other hotels even closer were significantly more expensive, so we opted to stay here. "Pardon our appearance" signs as we approached the room which was in a far corner and required some hallway navigation to get there. Some mild signs of renovation along the corridor but nothing extreme. Room was spacious, clean, beds comfortable, but some may see the furniture as outdated. Our bathroom was large and clean, plenty of clean towels and small toiletries provided, but large tiles around the tub base visibly loose (not attractive, and could be a safety concern), and hot water took FOREVER to come up for a shower. Very old wall mounted hairdryer wasn't terribly functional. The walls and doors seem very thin, as we could clearly hear our neighbors talking and frequently going in and out of their room. Also could hear music from street/nearby bars, and our window was closed. Breakfast was included in our room rate, and we were pleasantly surprised how good it was (choices of hot or cold items), how nicely the dining room was set up, and excellent service by the breakfast attendant. My friend said they had the best coffee of our entire trip! So net/net - older, European style hotel with spacious rooms in great downtown location, undergoing updates, and serving a great breakfast.

Myself and partner stayed here and we will definitely return .. the staff are very friendly and helpful we spent one night here .. located in city center and close to everything 👍👍 the rooms are clean and everything you would need .. the bar in hotel is also great with very friendly staff

The rooms are small, dingy and in need of repairs. Hotel is under construction, there is zero insulation/noise control and every thing can be heard, no parking on site, and so you must find parking, which is difficult and expensive. Staff was not very friendly or helpful. Not a pleasant experience.
