Sleepless in Galway
This hotel is over a pub that becomes a nightclub at night. Music ended at 11:30 pm during the week but on Friday and Saturday it did not end until 2:30 am and even though were two floors up and our friends there floors up, it was so loud we felt like we were in the club. Our floor was vibrating and you could literally hear every bit of the music and the loud crowd inside the pub which was packed full of people partying. We called to asked if they could lower the music slightly and they said they could do nothing about it. I would not recommend staying here….

Ok but room too hot
It was a lovely room but very hot so had a disturbed nights sleep. Good location with parking a very short walk away. Lift was being repaired while we were there so was out of order.

2/10 Poor

This was the most horrible stay I have ever had at a hotel. We were on the first floor. The band played below us till 2am and our room vibrated and no ear plugs could even muffle the band. It felt like our beds were in the bar the entire night. I went down to the front desk and sled to be moved but they said they couldn’t do anything They moved us to the fourth floor the next night and it was quieter. I asked for the first night to be defunded by the manager since we did not sleep at all the first night and she responded by saying there was nothing she could do. They are a lovely hotel and too bad. Like I should have known? I did not see this in the reviews. Oh course we wanted a lively hotel anyways but one would assume that you would have it a little quiet by 11not 2am. Room 104 should not even be available as a hotel option

Would do it again.
Parking was not on-site, but was right next door and a discounted rate. Hotel was an easy 100 ft from the ramp. Busy area right on the main pedestrian walkway. Easy walking access to everything. Very friendly and helpful staff both in the hotel and the 1520 pub.

4/10 Fair

Know what you're getting into before you book
The location is convenient and there's a nice bar with great live music onsite. That said, I wish I'd have been warned going in that the hotel is essentially above a nightclub and extremely busy street and the walls of your room will vibrate with club music until the wee hours of the morning. If that's what you're looking for, you may have a decent stay, but it would have been nice to have been told this beforehand in order to have the choice for those looking for a different experience. There is no onsite parking so prepare to pay to park offsite and carry your luggage a short distance through the streets. If you don't plan on sleeping until daylight, this is probably a decent choice, but it would be fairer to guests to let them know what they're signing up for ahead of time so they can make that decision.
