“I'd a great stay in the Eyre Square Hotel over the Galway Races week. I was greeted and made very welcome by extremely helpful and friendly staff. It was my first time in Galway & the receptionist gave brilliant advice on everything from where to eat, shop, good pubs and available transport. I'd many fine meals in the bar which had lots of large screens showing the matches as well as a quiet restaurant. There is also a nightclub which is very handy for falling home. The hotel is situated in a central location just off Eyre Square and right beside the train station. The rooms are comfortable and are priced very reasonably when compared to other hotels in the same location”
