The House Hotel is located on a quiet street a few steps from the Latin Quarter. We didn't find the House Hotel to be our favorite part of Galway but there are restaurant and trinket shops galore on the extended primary street.

Our room (suite 301) was large enough with bedroom window and a peek-a-boo Juliet balcony view of the commercial harbor. There was ample closet space (but oddly, no drawer storage). The modest bathroom works for one-at-a-time use.

The team was at all times helpful and willing to go out of their way for us. Don't miss a cocktail in the lounge. The bartender is creative and engaging. The breakfast options are extensive. We enjoyed talking with the wait staff about Galway and their personal backstories.

Room tip: Suite 301 is very quiet with a bedroom window and a living room Juliet balcony with a peek-a-boo view of the commercial harbor

I had high expectations from the website and photos but from the moment I arrived I realised that this was not what I thought it was going to be. Lack of parking made check-in with luggage less than ideal, no help with luggage. Check-in was friendly. Room keys handed to me in a manky card cover (reused - eco-friendly but in the age of COVID was not ideal). The bin in the elevator made me think of BORAT's first hotel experience. The room was not up to scratch - bathroom was tiny and it smelled a little nasty. Windows were wafer thin and attempted double glazing didn't insulate the street noise very well. Breakfast was disappointing and like something from a cheap motel. On the positive side, discounted parking nearby (get a card from reception), and close to the tourist attractions in the city centre. Disappointing for the price.

Amazing hotel: Lovely and helpful staff, nice and clean rooms, nice breakfast (try the eggs benedict), perfect location. Hotels like this one are hard to find in Ireland.

Stay here, if you go to Galway!

We spent 3 nights at this perfectly situated hotel in the heart of Galway at the end of our Ireland trip. And while the accommodations are fine, the service and friendliness of the staff may have been one of the finest experiences we have ever had in years of traveling. Despite staffing shortages requiring many people to work double shifts, everyone was always smiling, friendly and going out of their way to help. They even made a last minute request for a birthday dinner for 10 happen when they were fully booked. Also, the food was excellent! I’m sorry I didn’t catch names, but can’t say enough good things about the front desk, bar and restaurant staff. If you get there soon, make sure to meet the 3 intern students from Italy as well…they will surely learn what good customer service looks like! Thank you again.

Room tip: The rooms are small, but clean. Very small shower.

Stayed in this hotel a few years ago and found it very luxurious so as this trip was for our honeymoon we booked it again as a treat but very disappointed as it is not a boutique hotel as advertised and more shabby than shabby chic. Booked a deluxe room but nothing deluxe about it. Furniture very tired looking, not very well decorated, stains on carpet and curtains, light over bed not working and hanging off wall, switches not working. Previously there was lovely bright reception area with ramp access but entrance is moved to what looks like back of hotel with 2 quiet high steps to go up. When I asked was this the only entrance I was told other entrance was only opened when restaurant was open, this is a serious issue for quests with mobility issues.
The week before our stay hotel reception rang to confirm our booking and asked was our stay for a special occasion, I said it was our honeymoon and reception staff said lovely and they would have a treat for us but during our stay no treat was given so why ask if there was no intention to provide anything. We frequently visit Galway and this was our least enjoyable stay
