“Great location, free parking”
Reviewed 4 April 2012

Good hotel, free secure car parking in the city centre. Location was great, right beside Eyre Sqaure in the centre of Galway. Rooms were fine no complaints except TV was wall mounted and every remote they gave me failed to work! Breakfast was fine and didnt use any other facilities

Clean rooms, good food in adjacent bar/restaurant. Located just a few blocks from main square of Galway - a short 2 min walk. Friendly staff. Wished we could have stayed more than 1 night, but being on a budget didn't want to splurge on a more expensive room on the weekend. Good value for the price. Couldn't have asked for more, would stay here again!

The hotel is just north of Eyre Square and has free parking, which is a big plus as we ended up paying 10 euro per night to park elsewhere. The rooms were spacious and comfortable, with very spacious bathrooms as well. Very good value with the included breakfast, which included a vast array of cold options as well as hot, made to order entrees. It is an older building, but does have an elevator (also an upgrade from many other hotels in town)! Well kept up overall. They were very nice as well when we somehow left behind a camera in the room. They e-mailed us to see if we had left anything behind, and held it for us until we came later in our trip to pick it up. We stayed at 4 different hotels in Ireland, and this was definitely the best one.

Reviewed 20 February 2012

The hotel has a really good location just off the main square in Galway, its basic but actually very good.

It has a sense of an old fashion B&B but the rooms are a good size and well equipped for the standard of hotel. The car parking was a bit strange but well managed

The food was very good and they do offers £15 pp for a 3 course meal and bottle of wine!

The staff were very helpful and the hotel was clean

Only complaint I had was the matress - lumpy and uncomfortable

But I would recommend this hotel

We spent 2 nights in this hotel this week-end, and we were pleasantly surprised with the standard of service at all levels dining room, reception, bar and even the parking attendant was a pleasure to meet. Have travelled the world staying at hotels and on cruise liners and the service in this hotel would match the best of them. Thank you staff of WESTERN HOTEL GALWAY.
