You cannot find a better location in the city. We. Stayed here the first time we went to Galway and enjoyed the stay so much, we booked it on our second trip to the city. Being right on Quay street is so convenient to the best restaurants in the city. The hotel is small which makes your experience feel very personalized. Whomever designed the rooms paid extra attention to detail as the quality of materials used are some of the best we had seen in our stay in Ireland.
