Nice hotel location

Posted 22-Jun-2014
The Forster Hotel is nice. It's location is great with only a 5 minute walk to the main shopping/ pub area's. The rooms are a little small but that's normal in Europe. Staff were very friendly and helpful!

Convienent and clean

Posted 19-Apr-2014
This hotel was in the perfect location and was very comfortable. Everything was clean and spacious. Surprisingly the room I had was very quiet too! Breakfast was worth it as well. Good selection and great service. Based on location alone, I would recommend staying here if you're making a quick stop in Galway or even for a couple of nights.

Excellent value and very comfortable

The hotel felt quite luxurious especially considering what we paid for the two rooms. Great location, only wish parking was included, but at least there is a discount for the city parking lot very near by. Would definitely stay here again.

Brilliant location

The hotel was perfect for our trip, it was walking distance to the city centre, not even two minutes away. The hotel was lovely and clean and the staff were really friendly. Highly recommend it.

Pleasant, Convenient, and Charming Hotel

Posted 18-Oct-2013
Pros: Location and breakfast were phenomenal!
Getting off the bus in Galway was possibly the easiest thing I've ever done. As soon as we got off right outside we saw the sign for the Forster Court on the building opposite us. We went across the street and around the corner (a 1.5 minute walk) and we were there! It's very convenient location, as it's also just a 8 minute walk away from the main pedestrian street! The room was very nice and spacious enough, with a view of the street. If you get the breakfast, that's also well worth it! I expected just a cold buffet, but you also have the option to order a full traditional Irish hot breakfast.

Ideal

Posted 24-Sep-2013 on Hotels.com
Perfect location for a trip to Galway, rooms were in great condition, very nicely decorated, and very comfortable, reception was in a mess due to renovations, and the kitchen was closed aswell, this was not disclosed at the time of booking, not sure if that's the hotels bad, or hotels.com's fault. So only a cold breakfast and no bar food. Discount on my rate because I opted to have a hot breakfast elsewhere, so no complaints there, renovations have to be done and they are doing them with minimal interruption, I would stay here again no problem, hotel staff were all very friendly and accommodating.
