Loved the boutique; perfect location in the middle of town, free breakfast, cute rooms, and wonderful staff! Our room had a bit of an issue as every time we would re-enter after a day out and about or wake up there would be a dozen or so flies in the room. No idea where they came from, we made sure...

This mini hotel is in the middle of town next to pubs so you can expect some nightly noise but it was not to bad and we had a very good night in the perfect bed. Breakfast was unexpected good with fresh fruit.

On arrival we were allocated the William Wordsworth room, sounds good so far. Had to pay upfront, unusual but that's OK. After climbing the 4 flights of narrow winding stairs we arrived at our allocated room, or broom cupboard would have been a better description, just enough space in there to get through the door with a squeeze and bring...

We rented a house through 7 Cross Street. You arrive downtown Galway to pick up the key. We headed to the house location. After circling the block a few times second guessing that the address could possibly be correct, we found it next to a graffiti covered wall. The parking instructions were to pull up on the sidewalk next to...

When you are looking for a hotel in a central location, you are right here. However, the surrounding pubs are very noisy at night and the rooms and breakfast are very small. Staff is friendly (thanks for the lovely chat last night Maira :-)), but we would not stay here again due to the noise, makes the hotel overpriced.

The location of this hotel is the best thing about it. I would call this place a B and B rather than a hotel as it is quite small. There is a lovely charm to the hotel. The only downside was that the room was very small and there was little to no storage space in the room. However I...

Calls itself a boutique hotel, much like a B&B, small, simple hotel, no lobby, reception upstairs. Our room was quite small (think cruise ship stateroom) but very clean. Tiny bathroom, clean and modern. Staff was delightfully friendly and efficient. Nice continental breakfast included. Central location. Fine for a short stay.

Stairs and more stairs and tight turns were taxing for us. Room is tight which was not a problem--only sleeping in the room--out and about rest of time. Amenities are top notch, staff was wonderful! Quality breakfast. Location is the biggest plus. Everything you want or need within blocks of this hotel. And it is crowded. And some nights noisy...

I was hesitant about the noise reviews and I know how Shop Street can be on the weekends, but I fully planned on being out during my stay in Galway and I know the latest bars close at 2 (most close at midnight). 2:30 is the latest you'll hear anything in the streets and we had no problems! This is...

One of the staff was amazingly helpful, another one was comatose! The rooms are super small and noisy, well, the ones above pubs, which is pretty much every room. The breakfast is like having bubble and squeak at your stepmother's house: two pieces of this, one piece of that,... You feel guilty taking any of it thinking, "Is this the...
