the room obviously wasn't cleaned properly as there was an empty water bottle beside the locked and dirty tissue on the floor near the bed very disappointing!

Great location with a bus stop outside directly into the city center in less than 10 mins. Our daughter is a coeliac and they were brilliant with huge amount of choices to keep even an 8 year old happy. Would highly recommend and will definitely be staying again next time we venture up to Galway
