“Lovely decor & live music. Fun for kids too!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014 via mobile

Brunch was only ok & not much to choose from on a Sunday but the atmosphere is very relaxing... Decor-beautiful in the lounge. Service slow. Kids can decorate their own cupcakes & top their own pizzas @ the kids table. A lovely touch! Central. Attracts parties as well as Hen parties at night during the weekend & is noisy... Busy.. If that's what you want.

My mom and I showed up at this hotel after parking our car and carrying 50 lbs of luggage in the rain to find that it is no longer in operation. It was disheartening that we were not contacted ahead of time and had to make back-up reservations at the Harbour Hotel on the fly. Not the best experience, especially when you book months before!

I wanted a nice hotel and a great location and we found both and more!! The hotel was awesome. It had the quaint feel of a small Inn but the rooms had all the amenities of the larger hotels. We had a deluxe queen room and it was extremely spacious!! It was beautifully decorated. It had accommodations to use my US curling iron and straightener and provided a hair dryer:). No need to bring a converter or adapter. The lobby was so pretty and eclectic! It made you feel like you are visiting someone's house. The staff was extremely friendly and very helpful on recommending places to visit nearby. They gave us honest opinions and all their suggestions were perfect for what we were looking for! We had dinner at the restaurant and it was superb!! Excellent service, food and drinks. It is also walking distance to a lot of great shops, pubs and restaurants!! Highly recommend The House Hotel and I would definitely stay there again if we travel to Galway!

Arrived in Galway today with reservations for two nights at the House Hotel. We were dismayed to see a "closed for renovations" sign on the door. When we called, we were told that the hotel closed June 2 due to financial issues. They said they tried to notify all guests with reservations, but I received nothing from them. Thankfully the Jury Inn across the street had rooms.

Stayed here for one night in April for a party to celebrate a good friend's 40th birthday. My wife booked this and we had a good time. The hotel was not cheap but comfortable. The decorations and furnishings are all very pink and feminine. Judging by the clientele, I guess that is what the hotel planned to cater for.

There was a really big hen do at the same time (must be over 30 hens), so the place was rather rowdy. Service was also quite slow in the restaurant and bar.

Otherwise, it was a good weekend's stay. Not sure if I would choose to stay there again though.

This is a gem in the centre of Galway. The decor is modern and quirky. The rooms are small but stylish. The range of food for breakfast, catered for every taste - the granola was scrumptious and the fry was clean and tasty. I'll definitely be back again!

Stayed in the House Hotel for 2 nights. This Hotel is in a great location all be it very difficult to find!! The hotel is literally minutes from Quay street and Shop street, and both streets are literally buzzing! Rooms small but tasteful. Breakfast fabulous and great choice. Pancakes and berry compote were lush!! Fabulous place I cannot recommend highly enough..

Room Tip: Pick a room on third floor. Nice and quiet!
