Ate here the beginning of September. Happen to be the day Ireland won the championship in hurling. The pub was crammed and Galway was hopping from all the excitement. Had cottage pie and a Guinness with my friends. Food was tasty and the atmosphere perfect. The pub is ornately beautiful and we had great service despite how busy they were.

Room Tip: I did not stay here. I am rating the restaurant.

Nice hotel with friendly staff. Fauve & another young lady whose name I can't remember were exceptionally helpful in getting us bus/train schedules and overall info on Galway. A+ to these hard working ladies. Room was simple and had nice clean bathroom. Pub & restaurant are part of the hotel so very convenient if you want to have a pint before settling in for the night. Price was very reasonable as well. Would stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for room facing away from main street. Also, door closes at 11pm & you'll need to buzz...

We stayed recently. It exceeded out expectations in many ways. Upon arrival the receptionist spotted Mum on a walking aid and changed our room to make it more convenient for her. She wasn't asked to do this but stated they weren't busy and could give us a more spacious room.
We had a delightful cheery bright large room overlooking Eyre Square. Also an amazing Large flat screen which gave great viewing for the rose of Tralee.
The helpful staff including Holly and breakfast room staff all lovely. Breakfast was beautifully cooked.. The breakfast room is surprise awaiting discovery. It's Medieval decor and cadlabras are out if the ordinary. It was covenient for the train and local shops and cafes. We were warned it might be noisy but the music generally finished by midnight. We couldn't fault this hotel in anyway. It has free WiFi good reading lights over the bed. We look forward ro returning .
My mother almost 90 has no bother navigating this charming quirky hotel.

Room Tip: Had lots of photos but won't upload so will leave to your imagination .

Hotel is in a good, central location. Room was fine, but a little dated. Bar/restaurant is very interesting, classic Irish feel. We did not eat there, cannot comment on food. Many complaints about hearing noise at night; we had no problem sleeping and our room faced the square.

Stopped at this hotel for a meal and we were seated outside on the tables on the street. We were told that we could not have a meal outside as dogs were not welcome. We went to another establishment and were made very welcome ,dog and all. Our dogs was better behaved than the pigeons flying overhead .
