When I say cool, I mean the decor is a bit psychedelic...pink every where even the attire of the staff. Located right in the heart of central Galway near great restaurants and shops. The staff was very friendly and the breakfasts were warm and tasty. Our room was very comfortable but the bathroom was tiny. Great waterfall shower tho!

Many thanks to the hotel and staff for a lovely lunch.!!!! The Hotel is very central and we walked to NUI Galway after lunch. Car parking very nearby at the Hynes carpark. Nice idea to give a complimentary cocktail to the graduate! Lovely decor and a very friendly atmosphere. Recommended!!!

We have stayed here many times, the most recent being a midweek stay in October. The location of this hotel cant be beaten. It is very central (in the nicest bit of 'central') and walking distance from restaurants, bars, shops and most of the sights. It has been revamped recently and is just as quirky and colourful but is even...

We only got to stay here for one night, but would definitely go back! The hotel has been recently updated and everything was in working order. Cooked to order breakfast was tasty and fast. They had a bar area that was hopping at night, but we did not have time to take advantage of it. My husband said the decor...

There is always a great buzz in the bar and they serve wonderful cocktails. Car parking is close by and at reduced rates for hotel customers. it is located close to...

The House Hotel is a fine place to stay if you want to be able to easily access the main shopping and pub street (High Street). The decor is a little too cute or overly-themed boutique styling for me, but most of that is in the lobby and restaurant. Parking was a block away, which is understandable, but still less...

The staff was very friendly and the hotel is in a great location for shopping and great restaurants, but the pillows (not sure you could call them pillows) and the bed were uncomfortable. In addition, the room was not very clean. Again, great location.
