    Good

    The staff were excellent, the bar staff being especially friendly and helpful, with the hotel manager also being exceptionally quick to assist with any issues. The location of this hotel is beyond central, and one of the hotels most attractive features.

    Unfortunately, our room was of a fair standard only, due to a window which would not seal shut, therefore allowing noise from the station announcements (there is a station adjacent to the hotel) very easy access to the room. There also was an unfortunate smell in our room when we arrived home, and the heating was shut off from 10pm - 6am.

    excellent position,boiler with coffee and tea in the room,nice room

    the window on the inner courtyard used for the hotel service(litter),noisy and smelly, anyway with the windows closed wasn't too bad

    Good

    Eyre Square hotel is very close to all of the shops nad nightlife Galway city centre has to offer.

    There is no car park and they do not tell you this on any website where the hotel is advertised. Car parking costs an extra 10 euro per day on top of the cost of the room!

    Good

    Great price, perfect location, clean rooms, breakfast was very good. Staff always on reception, always there to ask questions. Triple room had 3 single beds so was very convenient when staying with friends.

    The special rate dinner was not as advertised (we were emailed a copy of it but the menu on the night was much smaller with far fewer choices). Not a great atmosphere in the food area, wouldn't recommend the place for food. Was noisy at night, with girls fighting in the corridoors. We didn't mind too much, as we were out late ourselves, but it wouldn't be the hotel to pick if you wanted a romantic / quiet night.

    location was good, nice bar..

    a party was aloud to take place in nearby room until 6am, very noisey, nothing done when rang down.. night porter was extremely rude, accused us of making noise when we asked him about it the following night, told us we had 24 hrs to complain and was too late, so nothing could be done.. very very poor staff..

    Good location. Adequate breakfast.

    The hotel has an adjoined nite club that was really loud. In our room it was like being in the nite club! The bed was small for a double and the mattress was very worn meaning you would roll into the middle of it! Not very comfortable. Alot of hens and stags so very noisy after nite club with people coming back to rooms shouting and banging on doors.

    Proximity to train station and all city amenities. Breakfast was delicious! Room was basic but very clean. Had read online that it was very noisy etc... i stayed on a very busy Sunday night and did not think was noisy at all!

    No complaints. Staff were very accommodating.

    Exceptional

    The paper in the room stated that breakfast begins at 7:00A.M. When I went down at that time I was informed by the Non-National night clerk that breakfast starts at 7:30. He was not very pleasant. The Irish receptionists were very polkite.

    Fabulous

    The room was clean, had comfortable beds and plenty of wardrobe space. Breakfast was very good and staff efficient. A request for a hairdrier was immediately responded to.

    The only problem was the noise from the disco on the Monday night - I didnt think there would be a disco on that night(Easter Monday) and even on the 4th floor it was very loud and prevented me sleeping for hours. The following night there was no disco and I slept perfectly.
