Great location, very nice, comfortable hotel and very friendly and helpful staff. The additional bed for our 4 year old child was a bit on the expensive side considering it did not include breakfast but besides this it was all good. Highly recommended.

When I say cool, I mean the decor is a bit psychedelic...pink every where even the attire of the staff. Located right in the heart of central Galway near great restaurants and shops. The staff was very friendly and the breakfasts were warm and tasty. Our room was very comfortable but the bathroom was tiny. Great waterfall shower tho!
