Fabulous 8.8 From 136 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Worth staying and very accommodating
Really loved the hotel. At first thought it was a pub from outside but was greatly mistaken . Lots of thought into things like delivering your breakfast in some bags as they don’t have that facility . Parking was nearby in Jury Inn parking and was a charge but not much.Reception explained everything well on arrival and we had new interiors . Worth staying

Good Hotel - Friendly Staff A++
Nice hotel and very friendly staff. Live music in the pub attached to the hotel which does go on late into the evening but perfect for the trip.

Lovely boutique hotel in a perfect location
Lovely boutique hotel in the centre of Galway. Parked in Spanish Arch multi-story which is discounted by getting the tckt stamped by the hotel. Some inevitable noise from the street below & breakfast comes in a bag (juice, granola, yoghurt, muffin, apple) but lovely, comfortable room and perfect location made it a great choice.

The Residence Inn
The location can't really be beat and the hotel has made a serious commitment to trying cut the noise from the streets out of the room. You can't be well-situated on a street loaded with pubs and have total silence ; however, the city view rooms have two double-pane windows and thick curtains which seems to do the trick. The rooms also have disposable ear plugs in case it's a particularly noisy evening. In addition to the location, the rooms are very nice and there aren't any issues with poor WiFi connections or slow bandwidth. Everything seems fairly new and there's a bottomless supply of N'espresso in each room. There's also complimentary bottled water (glass bottle) that's restocked everyday (or on demand if you ask the staff). If you drove to Galway, the hotel has arrangements with a few of the local car parks. I'd recommend the Hynes multi-story since the one near the hotel can be a bit cramped. The Hynes one is about a 5-minute walk away and has loads of space. Just park there and then get a hotel discount ticket from the front desk. When you leave, insert your ticket followed by the discount ticket and the rate will be adjusted (to €8/day at the time of this review).
