My boyfriend and I stayed here recently and had a great time. The hotel is very centrally located. Rooms are very modern and contemporary. There was a good choice at breakfast and I really enjoyed my vegetarian breakfast though my boyfriend thought his breakfast had been cooked for sometime. Ideal for couples and girlfriends as this is a real girly...

Liked the hotel. Rooms small & a little over priced but location is perfect so that outweighs the negatives. However the bathroom door is ridiculous. No privacy. It's frosted glass but has a large gap around it & doesn't close properly. I would recommend this hotel to stay in but DEFINITELY NOT to eat in. Our meal was atrocious. There...

We were in a group of 15 touring Ireland last week, and stayed at The House Hotel on the 8th October, just for one night - wish it could have been longer. Super hotel - lots of bright pink! Great location, just near to Galway Bay. Super room - everything very modern. We dined in the restaurant and had breakfast...

Arrived on a sunday evening to chill out and would certainly make the trip back again. The front desk staff are lovely, as is the hotel and the voucher for 2 free cocktails was a lovely touch. We were looked after extremely well and will certainly recommend this hotel to any friends travelling to Galway in the future!

I recently had the pleasure of staying at the House Hotel for one night to celebrate a special occasion.The hotel's location is fantastic and within walking distance to everything.

Despite arriving on a Saturday when the place seemed to turn into one big hen party,the room was very quiet and we weren't disturbed once. The bed was comfortable, bathroom nicely finished if a bit on the dark side. LED spot lights aren't the best when looking in the mirror although after a night sampling the pubs of Galway it's...

The location of this hotel is great. There was lots to see and do nearby. The bed was comfortable, room was decent-sized, and I liked the quirky decor. Despite the double windows, however, it was loud in our room, especially with street sweeper or something similar at 6am that went on for quite a while. Additionally, parking situation is not...

The hotel is very nice and clean. The rooms are spacious (the only fault in my opinion is the lack of a shelf in the bathroom, there was no space to put the toiletries). The staff is very friendly and polite. We really liked their delicious breakfast - you order it from the menu and it is freshly prepared. Besides...
