Eyre Square Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

My wife and I knew it would not be a great hotel, but we were still disappointed. Lots of construction going on (which I noted in other reviews, but it was still very noisy). The room we were in was not clean, and was in pretty rough shape with very hard beds. I know these things can be common in downtown hotels, but compared to other hotels on a recent trip to London and Ireland it ranks at the bottom. We picked the hotel for location (which is great) but probably should have gone with something a bit off the main square for better quality. The pictures of the bar below the hotel looks amazing, but when you are there in person, not so much. For the price I thought we would get something decent as there were lower priced hotels nearby that are probably the same quality.

Why do people knock a hotel that they have not paid a fortune for? This was a budget priced hotel that offered lots more than budget accommodation. Room was very clean, as was bathroom . Towels changed daily, tea and coffee available and replenished. Reception staff and night porter very friendly and helpful. Cant comment on food as we did not eat dine in. If I had a kinda complaint, it would be the only one key per room policy, yes you can leave your key at reception, but what if you want to go to bed early whilst the other occupant(s) are out, you have to bother the night porter! But complaint over..........In my opinion anything under a very good review is pure folly, especially considering the price.......... Book here with confidence unless you want 5 star!

I arrived in Galway off on a long bus journey and I was hungry so I decided to stop at this place and get a quick bite to eat, I wasn't impressed by the general lack of customer service given by the staff on duty, as I was waiting nearly 15 minutes to be served by a member of staff. Ordered the burger, but I wasn't impressed with the burger, and the chips were like a day old leftovers, left a bitter aftertaste in my mouth, not at anytime did any of the servers come to me to see was I satisfied, so I just walked out. Won't be back to this place again.

This hotel was very quaint and the employees were so friendly and helpful. Parking is a bit tedious for check in. Wish that was clarified better. I would stay here again if in Galway. There is a lot of history in this area and convenient to travel south, east and north as hotel is centrally located. The shopping area with restaurants and entertainment is easy as you can walk to and fro.

My wife and I enjoy traveling to Galway just to relax. We found this very nice hotel by accident and stay there every time we visit. Since we travel by train the location is ideal, being about 100 meters from the train station. There is a Centra market directly across the street from the hotel entrance. The staff are friendly and helpful, but sometimes they have their moments. The room is not huge, but large enough, clean and the bathrooms are fine with plenty of hot water, water pressure, and towels. Sleep quality has always been good with no excessive noise at night. It's not the Ritz but very comfortable. The breakfast in the morning is excellent and I think the Eggs Benedict was the best I have ever eaten anywhere including Dublin and New York City. What we also like is the hotel has a Rewards system for staying there on numerous occasions to encourage you to come back. We stayed there in September and October and will be back again in the near future. The hotel is close to everything by foot. Galway is very pedestrian friendly. M. Greg Miller Ennis, County Clare

We stayed in the Eyres Square hotel Oct bank holiday weekend and we had so much fun. Hotel was clean and basic; but you’re in Galway so time spent in the room is minimal. Staff at the hotel were great. So helpful and very fun. We ended up in the residence bar and staff didn’t rush to get us out. Made our trip extra special. Location is perfect also. A few minute walk to all the bars and restaurants. Would definitely recommend and will also stay here again. Also the food in the bar was fantastic and very reasonably priced. Great weekend with lots of memories made with the girls!

Hotel needs to be updated. Arrived in the room and the switch to turn on the electricity doesn't even work. The wallpaper was peeling off the walls in places and the paint on the bathroom door was also peeling. In fairness the room was clean and central location was good. Not worth the price in my opinion.

Great hotel, staff very friendly and helpful Food excellent, try the fish n chips 👍 Full Irish breakfast lovely Great hotel for the money Located near to the station close to the main square and just a stroll to all the bars and restaurants

Stayed here on a Hen a few weeks ago. Had a range of ladies from 18 up to 55 and they all said how impressed they were with the hotel. All of the staff couldnt have done any more for us from start to finish and were more than obliging at any requests made. The bar food was gorgeous as was the breakfast. Rooms were lovely, beds comfy and very warm. Definitely would stay here again.

Yes this hotel can get a little noisy due to it's very central location. That's the Galway experience though - music and fun! Despite the location I did manage to sleep even though my room was located facing the main street. Rooms were clean and adequate. Staff were friendly and helpful and breakfast was great. Jet lag had me up pretty early and the guy in the kitchen let me sit in the restaurant before it opened, made me coffee and brought me a croissant when it was fresh out of the oven. So good!
