Very central location was 98€ for twin room which is good for Galway. Lads behind the bar were sound. Grand for a lads night out. Would be no harm to put a shower jel dispenser in the shower. Can be a bit noisy with loads of traffic constantly going by , didn't matter much to us , As we hadn't...

Stayed with 5 friends. Great rooms at a great price. The owner was a great guy. Had a good chat and laugh over breakfast which was also good. Would recommend. Latin quarter is a great night out as is Galway.

Not the ritz but reasonably priced n great location with friendly staff. Most rooms have small balcony, are dated but a cosy place to crash if in galway for the weekend. Im now going type gibberish to hit the minimum word review limit trip advisor makes you do. Cheers

Hotel is in a perfect location only a short stroll from all that Galway has to offer. The rooms are all clean & the breakfast was great. Nothing to fancy but for the location & the price it is excellent value for money.

Nice central location, pay & display car park 100 yards away (free after 7pm on a Saturday till 8am Mon morning) Close to all pubs in Galway. Rooms basic but sat TV and clean Food in pub was fantastic. After a long day travelling you don't need to hunt for a restaurant. Landlord was really pleasant and happy and couldn't...

- Good location, very short walking distance from the center - Lots of space in the room, spacious despite suitcase - I've always wanted to sleep over a pub; we were not disturbed at night at all from any noise - Lots of light through multiple windows - The bathroom wasn't the cleanest I've seen (maybe because it's older), but...

The location is perfect, that's true but there are spiders everywhere, there are 3 floors without lift, only wifi on the first one. One light for the whole room.... If you can spend more money don't doubt it! Obviously there are many other places much worse!

Stayed here for one night with friends, very central, bit pricy for one night (€98) without breakfast but Galway is VERY overpriced so was the best we could find for a Friday night. Rooms were good, bit old in that could do with a lick of paint, but beds were incredibly comfy, room was warm and the owner in the...

We really enjoyed our stay in Galway and definitely would stay in the Galways Arms Inn again. The only small downfall was no shampoos/shower gel/hair dryer and the lock to our door was doing a funny thing and wouldnt close but staff were superb and came straight up to help. Although we were on the main road, we slept through...
