The room was super small, but pretty quiet. The attached 1520 bar I highly recommend for the evening between the yummy bites and live music it was great. We only stayed one night which was plenty. Wifi was good. Staff very nice. Well situated hotel.

We had a great stay, the room was very comfortable and clean. It’s a terrific location, there is a bit of noise from the bar but ear plugs offered up by the friendly front desk staff took care of that. We would certainly stay there again!

Had a lovely stay! Ladies at reception were great. Feedback - some fitted sheets would be good, sheet kept coming off, but nice to see lovely new mattress underneath. Room was roasting, but the dyson aircooler was a lovely touch! Stayed in room 305, the horse is weird. Love the sustainable toiletries fixed to the wall! Great stay, would return, but not to the horse!

A hidden gem & a wonderful hotel, extremely handy to Quay Street in Galway. Am familiar with Galway but hadn't heard of this hotel before. Boutique style, modern and tea & coffee facilities in each room. Very clean throughout and the staff were very welcoming and friendly. We only stayed one night and did not have breakfast. We dined across the street in Martines which was busy and the food was delicious. Would definitely return for another stay and would highly recommend this hotel.

If you need quiet in the evening and early morning don't stay on 1st floor rooms, the noise from the pub is not nice. Everything else is perfect, mattresses are TOP, rooms are extremely clean and comfortable, having a good coffee machine in the room is priceless, staff is great and super kind. Absolutely recommend!

Recently stayed for a 21st. Arrived to a lovely note and bottle of prosecco for the occasion, which was so nice. Staff were extremely friendly, room was clean and spacious and the hotel is situated in a very accessible area however for those of you who enjoy quiet it may not be the best option for you. As for those who love food, a loud atmosphere, shopping and bars it is a great location. It is also only a ten minute walk to Salthill where you can walk the promenade, get a coffee and even go to the aquarium for the day and only a 10 minute walk back to the Hotel. It's only real flaw is the noise can continue to after 2 in the morning and that may not suit some guests. Overall, we had a very enjoyable stay.

Dear Chloe, Thank you so much for your lovely review. I was delighted to read that you were happy with so many aspects of your stay and in particular that you found the staff to be so friendly during your visit. The Residence Hotel is located on the famous Quay Street in the centre of Galway City. Quay Street and the surrounding areas are lively spots and although we’ve done our best to keep the noise to a minimum, there’s always going to be a party atmosphere around here at night. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience that this may have caused to you. Looking forward to looking after you again in the future. Warm regards Julia C

Great Location, the loveliest staff members! Only shame was the room did not heat up great although it was absolutely freezing in Galway on that particular evening and when we went to have a nice hot bath the water in the shower went cold.

Great hotel in the perfect location to the bars and restaurants. Even though our room faced onto the busy street we didn’t hear a thing . Rooms were modern and the beds were very comfortable. Best thing was when we checked out we had brunch instead of having breakfast at an earlier time. Would definitely stay here again staff very helpful and location was perfect for us
