The Eyre Square Hotel in Galway city centre is just a short few steps from Galway’s main bus and rail stations and close to the Corrib and Eyre Square shopping centres. Enjoy riverside walks along the Corrib or visit the famous Spanish Arch and Claddagh, the home of the famous Claddagh Ring. Our 3-star hotel boasts 80 comfortable bedrooms as well as the stylish Merchant Bar, Restaurant and Café.

Are you in charge of planning this year’s office or work Christmas party or looking for somewhere to host your Christmas celebration with friends and family? Our team would be happy to show you around our Merchant Bar and Restaurant (which is suitable for hosting events up to 100 people) and help you organise it!

We are currently upgrading the rest of our bedrooms and are looking forward to completing this work over the next few months!
