Lonely Planet review

In a sensational spot on the main drag, this 20-room boutique hotel is housed in a 16th-century former Carmelite convent. Its solid-timber bar has a great line-up of live music, so the rooms at the back, while smaller, are best for a quiet night's sleep.

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