It was amazing, clean linen, spotless room and a lovely touch of water and chocolates in our room. The gentleman who checked...

I'm not one to write reviews, particularly negative ones, but my experience at The Harbour Hotel last week was so unpleasant that I am prompted to share it. I attended an awards ceremony held by a theatre group of which my niece is a part. The energy of the evening itself was great, but the first let down of the...

We had a family Christening today, about 30 people. I couldn't recommend this place highly enough, especially for little family occasions. Food was amazing, presentation stunning, freshly made breads, melt in the mouth turkey & beef, beautiful fresh veg, (a treat to have asparagus) everything cooked to perfection, all you could eat desserts & delicious coffee! Kids under 6 ate...

Location was fabulous, super close to all the downtown sights and amenities. Would stay here for that reason alone, but it was also a nice hotel. Rooms were well laid out and executive level had nice water/tea/coffee options. Wifi was decent, but flaked out a bit in the evening (high use time we suspected). Bathroom was comfortable size, but the...

We tried the Bar at this hotel not expecting anything of any consequence. It was really good. Both enjoyed scallops to start, they were very tasty indeed. Followed with salmon and gorgeous home cut chunky fries. It was delicious. My partner enjoyed a whopping beef burger and chips. Declared to be excellent! Everything was very nicely presented. Well done all...

Great location in the heart of Galway. Sadly the hotel is getting a little shabby. Double room was quite small - hardly any room for 2 suitcases - we were only there for one night so not that big a deal. Had car parking which was a bonus. Very friendly helpful staff. Nice bar and eating area. If booking consider...
