I can never understand why the portions are so small in the Huntsman. The food is lovely very good quality but tiny portions. I wish they would charge more give a proper size and I would be happy. I ordered Hake grilled I would have eaten two of them no problem. I feel like Oliver Twist asking for More. It...

Couldn't fault this place on a single thing. The seafood was all delicious as expected in an establishment so close to the sea, the pints were great value and the atmosphere watching the Ireland rugby match on their HUGE telly was brilliant. Found the staff to be very helpful and polite. The roaring fire made the place feel warm and...

Great value for a midweek stay, includes a great breakfast. Very friendly staff. Rooms clean and modern. Pub-grub good value and delicious. Good selection of seafood as you'd hope for so close to the Atlantic! Great location - 1km walk from city. Free parking.

Wouldn't really rate the pasta dish I got here, it was meant to be served with crostini but came out with 2 pieces of really soft bread, the toppings on it were pure cold and never complimented the dish at all, the last time I ate there I had a similar experience,

Stayed here for 1 night in Galway, loved this hotel. Room was huge and very modern, big bathroom but beware of the radiator in the bathroom, it burnt both of us! Food is unbelievable, ate in their restaurant for all 3 of our meals and could not knock service, taste or value. The menu had plenty of options and the...

Had a meal here on New Year's Eve. The place was very busy with bookings and post rugby match. We hadn't booked as we were on our way home from holiday. But we were fitted in, given a table and the food as always was delicious. Always eat here when in Galway. Free parking. So handy.

I stayed here last week. The room I stayed in was fabulous, very spacious, modern room with very comfortable bed. A ten minute walk to the town and only €6 taxi fair back. The staff were more than helpful and very friendly. Had a seafood platter in the bar which was delicious and a lovely band were playing without drowning...

Absolutely lovely food. Chicken done to perfection. Moist and tender. I only usually have one meal a day. I brought my wife in for her birthday dinner. We both enjoyed our food. But an extra scoop of potatoes would make the pricing better. It is the cheapest thing to put on a plate as well as veg. But you would...
