8/10 Very good

Expect to carry your luggage up narrow stairs. Typical Irish accommodations with no air or fans, so if you are there during a heat wave, expect to sweat.

Walk on the West End
This aging guesthouse is over a lively pub that doubles as the breakfast room in the morning. There's parking on the street out front and a small private lot out back. Rooms are compact but everything works. Small shower but plenty of hot water and a very clean bathroom. Wi-Fi worked great. Delicious hot breakfast too. And the best part was the hotel's proximity to the West End's Sea Road, where trad music pubs such as the Crane and Áras Na NGael, and restaurants such as Massimo and Mona Lisa, are a short walk away. Further on is the Dominick Street scene, and the bustle of the city centre is beyond that over the bridge. The Quays is like the Doctor's Tardis: looks small from the outside but huge enough for 800 people inside. The Skeff is nice too. In between them, lots of shopping, but watch out: all the shops close promptly at 6.

2/10 Poor

Needs updating
Room was small and shabby bathroom had a very musty smell and shower was disgusting. Didn't really use bar a bit noisy first might but not really an issue for us. Short walk to salthill but definitely not to city centre and we would walk lots so would recommend bus.

weekend break
Had a wonderful 3 day stay, staff were friendly, efficient and professional.Food was lovely and our room was spotless and very comfortable. Hotel is conveniently situated within walking distance of beach and bus stops which provide regular services into the city centre.My daughter found this hotel for us online and we are already planning a return trip.
