When it comes to location, you could not have a better one in Galway city than this hotel. Sitting right on Eyre Square, this hotel is within immediate walking distance of all the bars, shops, and restaurants on Quay street, and all around the square. It's right in the middle of everything, and easy for Tourists to get to locations like tourist offices and travel guides. The hop on hop off buses are right there, as are the offices to book day trips.
While the hotel is an older hotel, it seems as though they have made some steps to update the decor within the rooms. As we were travelling with 3 adults in one room, it was nice that they were able to accomodate us with 3 single beds. The hotel is very large with lots of hallways to navigate.
The included Irish breakfast was the only problem we had. They claimed to have a full breakfast, but there were no hot foods, only pastries, bagels, and soft boiled eggs. There was not enough seating. Also, the bar downstairs seemed more like a hotel bar than the more
authentic pubs you see in the other hotels in Ireland.
We would definitely stay here again for the location alone!
