Lonely Planet review
There's faded Georgian charm in these three Georgian buildings wedded at this central spot just east of Eyre Sq, with a modern block behind. Rooms are large, modern and comfortable, with good-sized work desks but fat-screen TVs. There's basement parking.
Our independent authors have visited The Western Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Galway City.
