Stayed here for two nights in a twin room with a friend of mine down in Galway for graduations. Friendly staff and nice food were a big plus.

Met a colleague for breakfast last week and despite my fussiness I was served up a great breakfast just as I wanted it. A big thanks to Nicola who was pleasant, accommodating and offered great customer service.

Good and clean hotel. Very small room. Nice bathroom. Very friendly and helpful people. Corridors on 2nd floor had a very bad smell from fish and chips... The bar had great music and good irish beer! A bit noisy, as expected, being on Eyre Square.

Just stopped in for a quick pint and bite before catching the Dublin train because it is the closest establishment. The pint was fine. The pizza was terrible. Would never order it again. Staff was fine.
