This hotel is effectively in downtown Galway, just a few hundred meters above Eyre Square. We had a triple room for myself and three kids. It worked perfectly. The staff are very friendly, great breakfast, a lovely bar and underground parking. Phone in advance to get directions to the car park and ask them to buzz you in. They might need make and color of the car. There is an elevator from the car park to the hotel, perfect to counter any prevailing mist in the weather. They have a restaurant for evening food, but I didn't use it. Do note that this is a an old building, probably over 100 years old, and not a modern purpose built hotel. And of course this is the way it should be in a city as seeped in tradition as Galway. So reception, the stairs and the corridors are all kind of weirdly co located, but fully functional. We had an inner room so there was no view, but you don't want to hang out in your bedroom. There are far better hangout places around, including sitting in the surround window of the bar watching Galway pass by. Price is affordable, but you are paying somewhat for the location. Galway is such a walkable city it is worth it.
