I booked a two night stay for myself and my boyfriend as a surprise for his 30th Birthday. I definitely made the right choice! If you want a hotel that's more than just 'nice' this hotel is really unique and avoids any corporate/ chain hotel feel. The decor is modern bright and FUN whilst still being tasteful so it was...

I booked the hotel as a birthday surprise. The hotel itself is very central to shops, great restaurants in the Spanish Quarter and attractions. However, when we arrived the "set down" area was completely full with parked cars, so I had to jump out while my boyfriend drove around until I checked in. Our room wasn't ready but we were...

January is never an easy month to get through, so this year my Fiancé and I decided to book a weekend break to beat the post Christmas blues. What a splendid idea it was!! This is the second time I have stayed in The House Hotel (first time on business) and I was dying to come back for a trip...

The hotel really is in the heart of Galway within a minutes walk from the Spanish Arch. The rooms were large and elegantly decorated with a rustic twist. I particularly liked the Orla Kiely toiletries in each room. Staff were very professional both at the reception desk and in the restaurant. The cocktail bar is beautiful and has a large...

Let's see: reasonable price, great service, trendy ambiance, excellent breakfast and next to the Latin Quarter/what's happening - what's not to like? I prefer small boutique hotels and some quirkiness/charm that distinguishes them from the corporate, all the same, boring palaces and this fit the bill. Actually, it has no quirkiness, just trendy charm. At first when I found I...

We were in Galway for 3 nights. We knew that this wasn't a 5 star hotel but it exceeded our expectations on many levels. There are definitely some areas for improvement, but they did not deter me from giving a 5 rating. Location - Amazing. In the heart of the latin quarter. You could walk to the Spanish Arch and...

We found this hotel has something which the bigger 4 star hotels is lacking. The customer service was excellent and the breakfast was delicious. Again a far better breakfast than you get in other hotels. Things like a bottle of water in the room on arrival really adds to your stay. The location is just ideal. The only thing that...
