I was part of a large-ish group that descended on Foyles for a wedding in mid September. Myself and two friends shared a family room up on the second floor - which had 3 single beds & a double bed. More than perfect for what we needed (including the exercise associated with climbing stairs clearly not good if you have limited movement etc). The room was super large, 2 windows (lots of light), over looked the street which got a bit noisey (but highly likely it was some of the other guests associated with the wedding, not the locals). The room had a door which could be used to close off the room for some privacy but you needed to open it to get tot he bathroom. No mini fridge. Our shower was a bit weak, but our other friends said they had no complaints about theirs. Hotel breakfast was great, though I couldn't stay there longer than 2 nights or I'd be fat as a house from it - full Irish & croissants & cereal & juice.. nom nom nom! Parking - not onsite, all on the street - there are parking meters & restrictions out front (not sure on how strict the parking cops are). Free parking in the nearby streets or just down the hill in the free council parking area. Bar downstair was fine, girl staffing it was over her head with a handful of customers & their orders, didn't cope well when the other 15 people showed up. Hopefully she was new & has mastered it now..
FYI - Irish tap water is a bit special, I suggest if you aren't local, buy shampoo products when you get there and they may be produced with local pH balances in mind i.e. they may rinse out slightly easier (yes, this may seem petty, but when you have a lot of hair & 3 girls are trying to get their hair done for a wedding it's important to meeting time frames!)
