In Galway’s historic Latin Quarter, The House is an elegant, 4-star hotel just off Quay Square and the Spanish Arch. It offers air-conditioned rooms, free Wi-Fi, a restaurant and cocktail bar.

Set in an old stone building, The House Hotel has unique art deco interiors and modern facilities. Rooms are all individually decorated and feature soundproofed windows, flat-screen satellite TVs and laptop safes.

Chic and understated, The Yard Kitchen & Bar offers a comfy lobby to lounge at any time of the day, and a restaurant that you can party the night away in at the weekends. A selection of cocktails are served in the award-winning bar.

Located in the center of Galway, The House is a 10-minute walk from Galway Cathedral and the National University of Ireland. Numerous independent boutique shops are located nearby, and Salthill and its promenade are just 15 minutes’ walk away.

This is our guests' favorite part of Galway, according to independent reviews.
