"Excellent location!"
Great location - pubs, shops, restaurants are literally on your doorstep. Room and hotel is a little outdated but its worth it for the location and the great pub attached. Check-in was a breeze and everyone was friendly. Dinner at the Spanish Arch downstairs was excellent. Important to note that this hotel charges per person - we had 2 people but our room was huge and slept four so we invited two friends from outside of Galway to stay with us the 2nd night of our stay. The doorman would not let them in when we got back to the hotel since they were not on the list and I paid him 100euro in cash to let them come in to cover the 50eu pp policy. Our fault - I just wish we knew about this policy ahead of time.

"Downtown Galway"
Awesome hotel. Room 302. Double bed and a single. Very nice workers. Great view of Eyre Square, a block from train/bus station and all the outside city tours. Shop Street, appropriately named right there and all the amenities; Irish junk food, small market, ATMS, bars and coffee shops. Busy sure, but even front site windows remarkably quiet. A find.

Spent two nights here while exploring the surrounding areas (used Lally Tours, they were fantastic). The decor is a bit spartan inside, but the rooms are spacious and comfortable. Lots of places to hang wet clothes. Lots of surface areas- Wood desks, dressers, nightstands, side chairs, etc.

    Pocket Guide: Galway Alcock and Brown Memorial Hotels

    The first ever transatlantic flight landed in Galway in June 1919. Alcock and Brown flew their modified Vickers Bomber from St John's, Newfoundland, to Clifden, Connemara National Park in County Galway, Ireland in under 72 consecutive hours. The site where the pair landed has been preserved as a national and international monument to the history of aviation.

    A small cairn marks the spot where news of the flight’s landing was transmitted by wireless to London. A sculpture of an aircraft's tail fin stands around a mile from their landing spot, to mark the fourth anniversary of the landing. These two monuments are open to visitors, standing out in the natural brilliance of the Connemara landscape. They serve to remind us of the achievements of these early aviation pioneers.

    Today the monuments remain a popular tourist destination. Visitors arrive from around the world to see the spot where world aviation history was made.
