The Residence Hotel Galway is a boutique townhouse located in the cultural Latin Quarter of the vibrant Galway city. In everything we do, we provide a great first impression, not just with our irresistible design but with our authentic and friendly welcome to each of our guests. This is a place to truly discover the city instead of just visiting and to immerse yourself in all that is Galway. Our neighbourhood is recognised as the most vibrant and historical area of Galway City, spoiling its visitors with an array of boutiques, cafes and restaurants, including our 1520 Bar. A traditional Irish bar, inspired by our medieval past but with a 21st Century kick!

Come and Stay…


Our passion for cultural authenticity and genuine hospitality is rooted in and enhanced by thought-provoking design in each an every room. Our individually furnished rooms are situated within a 16th Century building, originally donated by the Kirwan family, one of the prosperous tribes of Galway. With pop art-inspired interiors to make you smile, that also include a powerful combination of smart technology and beautiful design features.
