The Western Hotel, Galway, Ireland
A nice place to begin a visit to the West Coast.
We enjoyed our 2 nights. Staff was friendly and helpful. Location was close to downtown and public transportation. Breakfasts were plentiful and good. Staff helped us get transportation to our next stop.

Hotel favors bands, bars, and partying over guests
This hotel is loud. They have a bar on the ground level, and they have bands there that start playing at 11 PM and go until 1 AM. We were on the 4th floor and could hear the band the whole time, we could not sleep. The hotel is old and not very clean. Very disappointed. Worst hotel of our trip. There were parties on the street from 3 AM - 4 AM going in and out of the hotel. The hotel staff did nothing about it. Not happy.
