Centrally located
The hotel is a bit old fashioned but I expected that. The room was in good condition. Shower was a disappointment since it kept going to cold water in the middle of a hot shower. The room temperature was also cold. One night there was a loud party outside at 3 AM. Then fire alarms went off twice. Other nights I got a good nights sleep & it was quiet. It’s in a good location in town & you can walk everywhere. I did not have a car & used public transportation. I was visiting family. I will be back to Galway again but might not choose this hotel.

Cute hotel with onsite parking in downtown Galway.
Loved having a bar and restaurant on site. We were lucky enough to be there on a Thursday night so that we could enjoy the Trad Band . Made the stay fun. The hotel is a walkable distance to downtown Galway. Leo handy to have onsite parking. Breakfast included was also a huge bonus.
