My husband and myself visited the House Hotel for Pizza and a glass of wine, It was a very pleasant experience. The Dining room was very busy as it was Grad night and they were catering for a few large parties, however, Aisling our waitress offered us a lovely space in the "Snug" and even though she was very busy...

Excellent stay here. Prime location in the Latin Quarter near tons of bars and restaurants, including some with live traditional Irish music. The room was a good size, great shower and extra comfortable king bed. Definitely recommend for a night out in Galway.

On visiting this hotel, with a few girl friends, we were greeted by a sea of pink..really nice, simply reception area. Staff really helpful and friendly.Rooms were really basic and quite small. The noise at dinner, was ear blasting as we were surrounded by 100's of hens, that was fine, although the same noise level at breakfast is a little... More

Stayed there a few years ago when it was Brennan's Yard & was expecting something quite special. Sadly, the room was fairly basic with lots of little niggles (such as the glass door on the en suite wouldn't open fully without hitting the toilet, shower doors opened outwards & soaked the floor). Communal areas were frankly grubby, particularly the stairs... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here recently and had a great time. The hotel is very centrally located. Rooms are very modern and contemporary.

Liked the hotel. Rooms small & a little over priced but location is perfect so that outweighs the negatives. However the bathroom door is ridiculous. No privacy. It's frosted glass but has a large gap around it & doesn't close properly. I would recommend this hotel to stay in but DEFINITELY NOT to eat in. Our meal was atrocious. There... More
