FAQs about hotels in Galway







Cracking City of Craic

Welcoming Galway is a small city with fantastic nightlife and an infectious atmosphere. Outside of the Galway Arts Festival, there’s still plenty of live music in the Irish pubs to get the party started.

The Galway Races at Ballybrit Race Course west of Galway Airport attract a good crowd, as does Eyre Square, a green space with flags of previous ruling families who gave it its nickname - City of Tribes. To the south are cobbled streets housing brightly coloured shops and restaurants.

Sights in Galway include its cathedral and city museum which offers an interesting insight into the history of the city and Ireland. Lynch’s Castle is the last remaining 17th-century merchant house, and the Spanish Arch is a small section of city walls by the Corrib River, linking Galway Bay to huge Loch Corrib. Where river and ocean meet is Claddagh Park, a great spot for a picnic with a view.

Further around the coast is Salthill Promenade, home to Atlantaquaria, Ireland’s national aquarium, focussing on sealife off Irish shores. It’s a Christmas Day tradition to jump from Blackrock Diving Tower nearby into the icy Atlantic Ocean, though you may well spot some wag giving it a go.

Booking.com has an excellent range of Galway hotels, apartments and B&Bs to complete your stay.

    Very friendly and helpful staff and we received an upgrade on arrival. Room was very clean and tidy. Plenty of towels in the bathroom and even a bath with our shower. Evening meal was excellent at a very reasonable cost . Breakfast buffet was exceptional with a vast verity to choose from including vegetarian. There was a public bus stop just outside the wall of the the hotel going in and out of town every day mostly every 30 minutes. It’s only a 20 minutes casual walk in a straight line so very convenient for a bit of exercise, will be staying there again soon, everything was excellent

    First of all, it is the people who make Galway special.

    First of all, it is the people who make Galway special. In addition, we liked being able to walk everywhere in Galway. We enjoyed walking along the river and the bay, and sitting on the wall along the water at the harbor. Galway Museum at Spanish Arch was enlightening. Streets restricted to pedestrians made it safe and easy to stroll and browse as we passed by uplifting live music. There were so many pubs and restaurants serving every type of food that you may want. The ice cream and gelato shops, Gourmet Tarts, Butler's Chocolates, and Farmers' Market had special treats to enjoy. The Galway Bay Seafood Chowder at Blakes on Quay Street was the best chowder I've ever had in my life, and I've always liked chowder. Aran Sweater Market shipped my purchase of sweaters and hat home for me with quick, courteous and efficient service. Loved the humor of the local people whom we met while strolling in the neighborhoods. One caution, don't let something go by thinking that you will pick up a last minute item in the morning before leaving Galway to catch the train or a bus as this is the time the shops are closed for deliveries of new supplies. Glad I did what I wanted to do from the moment I arrived because there is so much to see and do!

    I loved the hop on and off tour bus which we took up to salthill and back. The whole journey was narated, history unfolded I loved the traditional music in Taffees. We didn't have a bad meal wherever went . The architecture and history of galway is both beautiful and amazing. Our hotel was right next to the main train and bus station so ready access to main routes to airports and ferries etc. Local buses make getting around Galway very easy

    We prefered to eat and drink in the West End and stayed clear of Shop Street other than when we hit the artists market where we could get locally made stuff. We had great food at Universal and grabbed drinks at the Bierhaus. We listened to fabulous music at the Crane- go for the experience (go upstairs) if nothing else! If you want to go to the Aran Islands, I recommend the Aran Island Ferries. They leave right from Galway Docks and take you to Inishmore. You get about 4 hours on the island (enough to take a horse and cart (a must!) to Dun Aonghasa and back but not much else) then it picks you up and returns via the Cliffs of Mohr. If you want longer or want a different island you'll have to go to one of the other ports (Doolin or Rossaveel) that will take you a while to get to. The weather was incredible, so we were outside the whole time and walked on the promendade to Salthill each night. We didn't have a car- the traffic was pretty heavy, so I was very glad we were on foot. If you do have a car, I would recommend parking at wherever you are staying and walking everywhere else if possible. If we had more time we would have ventured to Spiddal and to Connemara National Park, but we felt we had enough time to see Galway itself.

    Room was spacious and all amenities expected were provided. The included breakfast was great and the service staff was friendly and attentive. Location is perfect for those with a rental car touring Ireland. The hotel has its own parking area and it's only a 20 minute or so walk to downtown Galway, which is very busy with car traffic and is a hard place to find parking. The Menlo Park Hotel is an excellent place to stay just outside of the city center for a good value.

    The location was amazing and the facilities were clean. 2 rooms with a double/single bed were cheaper than another hotel that was not close to the city center. We were able to leave our car on site even though we had checked out so we were able to spend extra time in Galway!!! The even let us leave our electronics in the office to give us piece of mind, rather than leave them in the car. Breakfast had good options.

    Comfortable if unspectacular hotel close enough to the city center with decor that feels pretty old fashioned. But everything was clean and the beds were very comfortable, but I would expect a bit more for the price I paid, although granted it may have been a bit higher because of the Christmas holidays. All in all a nice stay in Galway.
