Great location, parking garage, and helpful staff
Overall very good stay. The staff was very helpful booking a tour of the Cliffs of Moher and Aran Islands for us when we asked for advice. Breakfast was very good. Only downside was it was very noisey at night which was mostly because of the guests across the hall from us.

We had a lovely time in Galway. We stayed here for two nights. We only had one issue. I had paid upon checkin at the hotel, but on check out was told we hadn’t paid! Fortunately I found my receipt or was I danger of being double charged.
