Excellent hotel right on Eyre Square. Central location. Hotel staff so friendly and so helpful, room small but very clean and had everything we needed ( iron/hairdryer) Would highly recommend. Breakfast was included, good choice of food with lovely views over the square.
The staff are warm & friendly and very, very helpful (Thank you Niall, and everyone). The room was excellent, clean and modern. The location cannot be beat! Right on Eyre Square, which is in the heart of everything. Easy walk from train & bus stations. And tour buses pick up a block away. We were very pleased. Hey, the pub downstairs is huge… actually 3 or 4 bars with plenty if indoor & outdoor seating. So convenient to the hotel. Shop Street right around the corner. The hotel breakfast is OUTTA THIS WORLD! Almost too much food! What a deal, included in the price of our room. And when I asked for ice for our room, they were very accommodating.
Had a wonderful stay at The Skeffington Arms. Great location to start with. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The bar was very good too. Great food and atmosphere. Would definitely stay here again when in Galway
We stayed here for 2 nights in July and couldn’t fault the room, service or location. Situated in the heart of the city it was ideal for our visit. Discounted parking in the nearby shopping centre car park was a bonus. If ever we visit Galwaycity again this would be our first choice.
We had been to a family christening at Tully Cross where we had spent two nights. Having stopped and had lunch in Galway a few months before the outbreak of covid we had decided that we would like to have a stop over the next time we passed through and as we were to pick up and later drop off a hire car it was ideal. We made the booking at the Skeffington Arms online a couple of months before. From arriving on the Monday to leaving on the Wednesday we were made to feel very welcome. The location was ideal for us being very central and within walking distance of the coach station for our return journey to Dublin Airport. Our room was a very good size and with the weather we were experiencing the air conditioning in our was most welcome. From our arrival to our departure the staff couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. We would have liked to have stayed longer but due to work commitments this wasn't possible. A very enjoyable stay, over too soon. Steve and Linda from West Yorkshire…
Great central location, clean, spacious room, comfy beds and friendly staff. What's not to like 👍thats all I need to say but unfortunately I cant continue until I have typed 200 words. Tripadvisor please change this to allow for brief reviews. Thank you.
We absolutely could not fault our stay at the Skeff! From the beautiful welcome by the staff to the room, we couldn’t ask for anything more! We were warned about the noise - it’s a pub & to be expected, but we did not hear a thing! The sneaky little ear plugs in the side table caused a smile!
Beautiful hotel with nice style, good hotel room and perfect breakfast (the view on the breakfast room was really nice too). Friendly staff in the reception (nice lady) and a good surprise, the sweet card in the bed with the 2 chocolate bars.
We enjoyed our stay at the Skeffington Arms. Great location and nice staff. They are very upfront about the music in the evenings so just be prepared for that. It runs until ~midnight every night. Only issue for us was the breakfast which was not great compared to other spots we stayed but other folks really seemed to enjoy it if full Irish is your thing! If you have a car you do need to park at a lot that is a short walk away and they offer a discounted rate which is great. Beds were comfortable, showers were terrific and overall a solid hotel. Once again you can't beat the location right on Eyre Square!
Great Historical hotel. The wooden bar and breakfast area are so beautiful. Carved Walnut. We included breakfast it was very typical and good. Front desk help was Ashling, she was so helpful and kind. The parking close and cheap. €10 per day at the Q park. Follow your GPS to the hotel. Drop your bags at hotel. Get directions to park.
