Once again, I had the pleasure to stay in the House Hotel for Galway Race Week.
This was my fifth consecutive year at the hotel during Race Week and I'm already looking forward to next year's visit.
The House Hotel is very well located, just by the Spanish Arch and maybe 50 yards from the bottom of Quay Street. Yet despite this central location, the hotel offers a very calming and relaxed environment - even during Race Week, which is some achievement! Certainly, the hotel's decor is a welcome change to the other city centre hotels in Galway - most of which I have stayed in.
The public areas of the hotel are very vibrantly decorated yet equally comfortable. The hotel's bar and restaurant is very good and the cooked-to-order breakfast excellent, with a wide offering. Equally, the bedrooms are very comfortable with bright and well-designed bathrooms. I slept soundly on all five nights of my stay.
However, what really sets the hotel apart is the staff. I cannot praise Margaret and her team enough, ensuring that my stay was, once again, memorable. The staff are welcoming and professional - nothing seems too much trouble. All of my contact with the staff, from check in to check out, was perfect. The welcome is better than any other hotel I have stayed in.
All told, I cannot recommend this gem of a hotel enough. I've stayed in many of Galway's hotels, both during Race Week and during other visits, and the House Hotel is without doubt my hotel of choice in what is a tremendous city.
