Went away with my two friends on the 9th December for two nights and stayed in The Western Hotel. This is a great hotel, located less than five minutes walk to Eyre Square. The hotel its self is very clean and great value for money, along with very welcoming and friendly staff. I had booked a triple room, but luckily...

Conveniently located right in the center of town where there are all the best shops. Easy walk from the bus station, even after traveling for 17 hours with lots of luggage. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms aren't extravagant, but have all the necessities, are clean and the bed was very comfortable. We didn't have a problem with...

First, I want to recommend this hotel. I really do. It's in a great location and has free parking. Family room with 3 beds worked great for us. Staff were so pleasant and professional especially Clare-Marie, Assistant Manager. The pub provided one of the best meals of our trip and also had a great staff. The room was large and...

Stayed here for one night in December while on business and have to say that the room was great value for money- had everything I needed. On top of that the service was excellent- the staff were happy to hold my luggage for the day free of charge after I had checked out. Wifi a little choppy at times but...

Stayed here with my wife for 3 nights after Xmas. We have been to Galway numerous times, but this was our first time at The Western (I hope it will not be the last). The location is excellent, with the added bonus of their own on-site parking, which seems at first to be a bit small. However the Porters do...

We stayed in a two-bedroomed suite at the back of the hotel. It was more like an apartment, with a kitchen, living room, one bathroom and tv in every room. Plenty of space for a family. The location couldn't be better, only a 5-minute walk from Eyre Square. We had one meal in the restaurant and it was delicious and...

We picked the hotel for the location and the price, and we were not disappointed. The hotel was just a few minutes walk from Eyre Square/Shop Street. And the hotel also offers a nice buffet style breakfast for a reasonable price. The rooms were a good size, not fancy or anything. Our bathroom was spacious and seemed recently renovated. The...

We stayed at the Western for the first few days of our honeymoon last April (2016). The staff was very accommodating and we were able to check in a few hours early which was wonderful after our flight into DUB and the drive to Galway. The hotel is perfectly located a few minutes walk from Eyre Square. Great for going...
