The town of Galway was much more than I expected. Could be that I arrived on a Saturday - but there was a lot going on.

Great hotel in the heart of the city. My room was quite small in comparison to the previous hotel. But the bed was really comfortable and the room itself was really clean! The room itself wasn't very sound-proof. There was no *buffer* between the inside of the room and the hallway - just the door - so I could hear everything going on outside the door. Not a huge deal-breaker. The location made up for it!!! Easy walk to the pedestrain zone shopping/pub area and a 30 second walk to the bus station! Train station was about 3 minute walk on the same street. Shops close for drinks/snacks. GREAT location of this hotel!!!!
