  • 8.0.Very Good

    We had an excellent experience with staff which included the gentleman that checked us in. Very friendly. Victor in the restaurant was very friendly and efficient. Enjoyed being served by him. The location of the hotel is excellent. Breakfast was good. We were in a room in the front of the hotel which was a bit noisy hence the hotel had ear plugs in the room.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    The breakfast included was amazing. The staff were very accomodating to move us to a new room immediately when there was a strange smell from outdoors that was wafting into our room. The location to the action is great and you are close to lots of restaurants and shops. Parking is hard to find if not prepared but at least they give you a ticket for a reduced rate when you check out.

    Good location in the heart of Galway. Hotel staff on the front desk were exceptionally helpful with suggestions for pubs and restaurants. Hotel breakfast and dinner were also unusually good. Cycling on nearby Inishmore was fantastic and not to be missed.

    The location, staff and the town of Galway were all great. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The Forster was our favourite hotel of the 4 we stayed at during our recent trip to the UK and Ireland. Good breakfast in a beautifully decorated restaurant and bar next door.

    Hotel was great, the lift was close to the front door and the hotel staff gave great recommendations for food and drink. The hotel is half a block away from Square and is great as on the weekends this town comes to life and can be loud. Great spot, would stay there again if in Galway again.
