Dropped in for lunch today. We had soup and stale roll. We also ordered Cajun Chicken it. They took it away, we paid for the soup as requested and left. Never again will we eat there. We noticed a few customers left because service was so slow.

We stayed here recently . The location is a bit further from Galway City than I thought especially given the heavy traffic in Galway . We had four rooms we had no TV for two of the three nights we stayed which is a problem when you are staying far away from city amenities . But the biggest problem was...

I stayed here as I was attending a wedding in Galway city as most places within the city were either booked up or too expensive. I must say I'm delighted I chose The Arches. Firstly all of the staff here were fantastic and super friendly. They couldn't do enough for me. My room was serviced every day which was great....

We stayed here as we were attending a wedding in the hotel next to it. It was cheap and cheerful and you got what you paid for. The breakfast the next morning was the topper. Would stay here again if i had to.

We stay in a triple room for 90€. Big and comfortable room. Big bathroom too. Very clean. Good WiFi signal and breakfast included (eggs, bacon, sausages, tomatoes, beens, bread, tea, coffee...). Recommended to stay there if you want to see Galway, pretty near by car and much cheaper.
