OUR OPINION:

This is a contemporary, well-styled and great value option just a short walk from popular Quay Street.

Rooms

While simple in design, rooms are spacious and comfortable. They are decorated in a stylish contemporary manner with bright tones prominently set against crisp white linens. The style of the rooms could be described as comfy minimalism, with an uncluttered but inviting style. All rooms feature complimentary Wi-Fi, plasma screen TVs and compact bathrooms with a shower over the bath. Superior and executive rooms are more generously sized and come with larger bathrooms. 

Location

Situated in Galway’s port area, the Harbour Hotel Galway City is about a five to ten minute walk to Eyre Square, the city's commercial hub. Galway's pedestrian core of charming narrow streets lined with independent cafés, eateries and shops, as well as the historic Claddagh and Spanish Arch are also about five to ten minutes away on foot.

Food and drink

A full Irish breakfast as well as an array of hot and cold dishes are served in a relaxed atmosphere at the Harbour Restaurant. Bar food is available from noon and later, a full evening menu featuring freshly caught seafood and locally-sourced dairy and meats. Guests can also take part in whiskey tastings guided by an in-house expert.

Afternoon tea is served by an open fireplace in the light-filled contemporary lobby.
