We stayed at the Meyrick on November 3rd-4th, 2013 as part of a group tour. The location of the hotel is excellent; almost everything you'd care to do in Galway is within walking distance. The dinners in the hotel restaurant were top notch and the breakfast was good as well, although the buffet layout becomes difficult when a lot of people are eating at once.
Our room (406) was located in the annex portion of the hotel, and feels as disconnected from the rest of the hotel as it appears from the street. The room sits above a roadway and overlooks the bus station, so if it's warmer and you need to open the windows be prepared for engine idling noise and diesel exhaust. We didn't have to worry about the windows though because the radiator heat in our room did not work at all. Thankfully the staff were very friendly and quickly provided a plug-in electric heater when I called the front desk.
Overall, I would consider staying here again, but certainly not in the annex rooms.
