One cannot choose a more well-situated hotel in Galway City for sight-seeing, dining/shopping, and the pubs. Located on the beautiful River Corrib, with views over the Claddagh, Prom, and Galway Bay, this Hotel provides the perfect base from which to explore the City and surrounding area.
The Hotel itself has just been refurbished; the rooms are brighter and more comfortable; the dining room has ample seating and serves a delicious breakfast. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful in every way possible. There is a restaurant/bar on the premises - and - a variety of cafes, coffee shops, restaurants and pubs within a few minutes walk. The Galway Museum is just across the street and if you're taking a day trip to Connemara or the Cliffs of Moher, at least one (if not all) bus company has a pick-up right outside the door! There is a very useful brochure rack in the lobby; staff are always willing to help with reservations, confirmations etc.
My only reasons for the four star rating: If there are "hen parties" or other celebrations going on, it has once in a while gotten noisy at night. (This isn't the Hotel's fault, but if you're a light sleeper, it could be an issue on the weekends.) Also: This is a very busy hotel and I agree with other reviews, housekeeping can get over-whelmed. It was not unusual for our room to be cleaned as late as 4-5 pm. Since this is our "down time" before an evening out, we mentioned it to the desk and the situation was remedied.
We have stayed at this hotel for the past three years for 4 - 7 days each visit and we have always had an absolutely great time in the City and really like staying at the Jurys Galway; a chain hotel that has more than met our expectations.
