We dropped in to the huntsman on a business trip to Galway. The outside of the pub alone attracted me to go in as it looks wonderful as you are passing. Inside is no different, it's beautifully decorated and modern. We just had coffee and a cheese cake which were lovely. The staff were all friendly and welcoming. The rest... More

The reception after 7 was warming, and the room after a days travel met all requirements, even a blanket and a chair, and of course a convenient and big enough shower with a good size TV screen. And effective Wifi. In the Huntsman Pub and Rest we were efficiently serviced by the staff and the food was well presented and... More

This is a small, clean, modern, comfortable hotel, with a good breakfast. Our room was large, with a spacious en suite with both bath and shower. However we had to keep the curtains closed all the time as we were looking out over a busy road right beside us. We also had to keep the windows closed due to traffic... More

Very good hotel, pub, restaurant. We had a lovely room (110), with large room and separate sitting area with comfortable sofa and tv. Large modern bathroom with twin sinks, wc, bath and separate shower cubicle. The guest rooms are all located on the first floor with lift and stair access, and all around appeared fresh and modern decor. The restaurant... More

We had 1 night here and can't fault it. Staff really friendly and helpful and our room was great. Comfy bed and nice bathroom. Location was fabulous about a 15 minute stroll into Galway main town. Breakfast was by order not buffet and service fabulous.

The music from the bar downstairs is so loud sleeping is not possible. The drunk patrons party right under the hotel windows until the early morning hours. There is no food available after 10. There is no air conditioning but the option of opening windows just brings even more noise into the room. I would never stay agin and definitely... More

Being a resident of Galway city I can say that this is one of the best pubs in Galway for a bite to eat and a quiet drink, great for when you want to avoid the hustle and bustle of the city center. Every time I order food here it's always of high quality. Some people might think it's a... More

My wife and I stayed at the Huntsman Inn as part of our honeymoon to Ireland and found it to be the best hotel of the three at which we stayed for our trip. Located a 10-or-so minute walk from downtown Galway City, The Huntsman Inn has a good location despite not being in the middle of it all. Thankfully,... More
