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.

* We would just like to make you aware, our AWESOME location in the heart of the Latin Quarter means that sometimes there is going to be some noise at night, particularly at the weekend. We do our best to minimise this but respectfully, if you are looking for an early night, we might not be the perfect choice for you.  If you would like more details please contact us on info@theresidencehotel.ie
