As much as I liked the room and the service I am absolutely appalled by their lack of consideration towards their customers who are lodging the night. It is downright arrogant and inconsiderate. I wouldn't recommend it for a group of friends

This hotel has a fascinating history revealed in the interior architecture and décor. The room was comfortable, staff very accommodating, breakfast filling and delicious, and best of all its location was perfect for visiting many pubs and shops in Galway. Entertainment in the pub downstairs was super and the people we met in Galway were charming!
