Reviewed 21 June 2014

I stayed one night as I travelled around Ireland. Room and hotel were very nice with a modern urban feel in a bustling neighborhood. Staff were excellent and full of good recommendations of what to see and do in town. Love Galway...smaller and easier than Dublin, but full of good sights and fun pubs.

Room Tip: Ask for river view.

This hotel is located right in the heart of Galway, walking distance to the Quays and Eyre Square. Checking in and out was very swiftly. Had a very enjoyable breakfast and the rooms were clean & very comfortable. There are some lovely bars and restaurants within walking distance. I will look forward to coming back to this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the river

You can't argue with this hotels location but everything else is mediocre at best. No washcloths or soap- if you want to take a bath and not a shower you cannot reach the shower gel which is mounted to the wall. Evidently they are more afraid someone will steal their cheap shower gel than afraid that someone will slip when trying to take a bath and standing to reach the shower gel. No worries, you can squirt some into a glass. There are no top sheets- no worries, just use the 7 pound comforter. It's clear the intention of this place is to milk the good location and otherwise provide as little as possible to guests. I would never recommend this place and will never stay at a Jurys Inn again. Not expecting it to be a 5 start hotel but this is not even close.

Room Tip: If you need no amenities- I mean none- this is a good location. If you might need soap or a washclo...

Dear MariaKT,

Thank you for your recent review. The impression given to you by Jurys Inn, Galway did not fill me with pride and it is clear the Hotel did not meet your expectations by any means and left you with a feeling that the Hotel operates on a basis of providing the bare minimum. For this I truly apologise and assure you this is not the case.
I have taken all of your comments on board and will use them to improve the service we provide to all of our guests. I acknowledge the points you have made and although the likes of top sheets are available on request, this was obviously not communicated to you and we were not proactive in solving the issues during your stay. The comment you made about the soap is a very valid point and I have began the process of addressing this problem so that we can find a solution. Functional issues in the Hotel can be fixed with feedback from our guests, so I thank you once again for bringing this to out attention.

I reiterate my apologies and assure you I have not taken your comments lightly. I will be doing everything I can to address these problems to ensure future guest do not encounter these. If you would like to contact me to discuss the matter further I can arrange a suitable time for yourself to talk in person. I can be contacted at sean.osborne@jurysinns.com.

Best Regards,

Sean Osborne
Deputy General Manager

Great location, easy walking distance to restaurants, shopping, music, water.
The rooms are small and tight, as is everything in this city, including the parking garage and streets. However, I would certainly stay there upon a future return to the area.

Room Tip: Don't plan to lounge around in your room, it is tight. We had three twin beds. I am not sure wha...

The hotel was very clean. Parking was additional which we should have read the reservation a little better. Look to spend 10euro a day to park. However, if you are looking for a hotel that's close to everything and you can walk this one is perfect. The staff was friendly and very helpful with directions. I would recommend it highly. O

Room Tip: Bring your own washcloth's! There are none!

Location was perfect for what we wanted. Bars and restaurants just outside the door. Nice view from the room overlooking the river. Room was clean, bit stuffy but it was a warm day. Vending machine right outside the room door was extremely annoying late at night.
Staff very nice and helpful.

Jury's Inn in Galway is a great spot from which to explore. It is located at the end of Quay Street, yards away from the pubs and restaurants. The hotel itself is clean and modern. The rooms are more than adequate for families, groups, or singles. One thing to say, the hotel hosts a lot of party groups, whether it be golf, hen or stag. Given this, the bar is lively and the hotel is busy at all hours. If you're looking for peace and quiet, I would not suggest this area of Galway or the Jury's hotel. Overall, Jury's is a great choice.

Room Tip: Rooms on the River side would be quieter.
