We stayed one night in late May. We originally booked for 2, but left early to get to Newgrange for an early admission in the morning.
Our booking included parking and breakfast. As others have reviewed, the traffic and construction around the hotel is terrible. The Park sent us via e-mail instructions how to get to the hotel and they were right on and led us to the parking lot at the back of the hotel. There are 2 parking options, a valet at the back of the hotel and the Europa public car park right next to the hotel. If you are directed to the Europa, go in through the first level and then up to the second level as close to the door as possible. This is closest to the hotel and you exit under a covered walkway on street level with 50 yards/meters of the hotel. There is a back entrance to the hotel where, on exit, you have your parking card validated.
We walked through the lobby to the front entrance and were greeted with the news that makes all travelers happy, "you've been upgraded." Contrary to other reviews, our upgrade was outstanding and it is probably not fair to compare it with standard rooms. It was clean, comfortable, and well maintained. Our room overlooked the back parking lot and was very quiet. Breakfast the next morning was served in one of two rooms. In the smaller room, there was no buffet for cereal and drinks etc. and the only fault of our experience was that our waitress did not advise us about the buffet.
The public rooms were well cared for with staff greeting and looking to serve you as requested. It was very comfortable but, with smaller rooms for the reception area, bar, restaurants and the lobby, it was best described as chopped up. This is only a description, not a criticism of an existing building.
Eyre Square is a short block from the hotel and the walking area just past that. For location, it would be as good as any in Galway, and if you are driving, with parking included, the value is very high.
If we ever to return to Galway, we we stay again.
