Lonely Planet review

Rooms at the Skeff, overlooking Eyre Sq, eschew the frilly cliché. In fact the only lace you may find in any of the 24 rooms is on your underwear. Pass through the arched traditional entrance into a min- imalist haven. Air-con allows early risers to cut out noise from the frolicsome masses roaming the streets on long summer nights.

Our independent authors have visited Skeffington Arms Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Galway City.
