We visiter the pub only. Lively atmosphere with a mix of locals and visitors. Well furnished and layout good. Excellent selection of drinks and bar food good. Staff poorly dressed and untidy. Cleaning detergents on bar counter. Staff loud drinking beer behind the counter.Almost perfect.

I really loved the ambience of this boutique style hotel. The staff are delightful and very helpful. We ate in the restaurant during our stay and the food was very good. I've only 2 small complaints. The pillows were dreadful! They are flat and hard, no bounce back in those little pancakes. The check out time is 12 which is...

This is a great place to stay if you are in Galway. Everything was to our satisfaction, The rooms, bed, bathroom, location, breakfast and parking. There are 3 bars and a great restaurant in the hotel, Irish music and a lot of happy people. This is a place we will come back to

Over rated.........live band on but corporate event dominated the evening and talked over the music. After band had gone, bar closed, bar manager and staff sat on but refused to open the bar saying that because there are only 12 rooms, they dont have to open the bar late. We only wanted one more drink. Other residents were similarly fed...

I have been a regular here for years and always love the food and still do . However over the past few months I can not believe how bad the service is . The staff are actually rude and totally disinterested. There is zero customer service and the attitude here sucks. It's such a shame as I love the food...
