A beautifully renovated small hotel in the downtown core of Galway. It suited us perfectly. It was a bit noisy in the late hours with music playing at nearby pubs. The earplugs they provided did help.

Perfect location a block from eyre square. Fun bar where we had good drinks and desserts. Friendly staff. Parking in Galway is a little hectic because driving isn’t super easy (big pedestrian zone and lots of 1-ways). One complaint is that when staff cleaned in the morning all the dirty glasses and room service trays seemed to get clustered near our door, which wasn’t great. The room had beds for 3 people but nowhere to put luggage so we were stepping o er suitcases a lot. But that’s common in boutique hotels these days. Overall we liked it.
