Stayed here for two nights. And the room we received was lovely and big with an ample sized bathroom. After going down stairs for a bite of lunch the portions were very big and well worth the money. Staff were very friendly. I would recommend this hotel as it's only a few minutes walk from the nightlife but very quiet... More

Myself and my partner had dinner here at the weekend. We had eaten here over a year ago and couldn't wait to come back as it was great last time. For starter, my partner got the goats cheese fritter and I got the soup of the day with bread (soup of the day was carrot and sweet potato). Both were... More

Extremely friendly staff that maximized every discount available. The food was excellent, including the best seafood chowder I have had in Ireland. Very nice atmosphere in the restaurant but we ate our meal in the very comfortable pub.

We arrived late for our Stay in the hotel so decided to eat dinner in the hotel restaurant. I had a chicken dish with potatoes and leaks and while the chicken was well seasoned and moist the potatoes were not. The service was disorganized. We had no less than four people serving us and they completely forgot to bring our... More

I love food. I have the pounds to prove it. To say the food at The Western blew me away would be such an understatement, the British would applaud my cheekiness. We had their Sunday lunch when we arrived into Galway today. Everything is fixed price at 10.50 euro, which given our other outings in Ireland, led me to question... More

We booked a table for 10 people as we were having a family get together and they gave us a table by the window which was nice. The food was excellent and the service was good too. We had a lovely meal and at no time felt hurried. The staff were amusing and friendly.
