      Let met begin by telling you that Alisha who worked the front desk on the evening of May 9th and morning of May 10th was simply outstanding!!!!! Excellent customer service and fantastic advice for touring, pubs, transportation. We we left with no information regarding the "Ash" from Aer Lingus. Alisha came to the rescue and put Aer Lingus to shame! You have a very valuable employee on your staff. This is my second visit to the Forster and I will be back again.

      The room was very well decorated and felt warm and cosy. Helpful reception staff answered my queries well and very politely.

      The room was very stuffy, but when we opened the windows the noise from the road kept us awake as well.

      Friendly and helpful staff, very close to main city centre and nice interiors.

      No private free car parking at hotel

      It was a center city hotel that was excellent value for the money. Great breakfast, staff was nice, rooms were clean and comfortable, and it was conveniently located. There was a car park that had 10 euro rates, but it was a 5 minute walk and there was not an east luggage drop off by the hotel. Next to the Park Hotel, which is a bit nicer, but not 40 euro nicer!

      Location is the centre of the galway city. So close to the bus station, shopping area and the sea.

      The atomosphere of the restaurant in the hotel was a bit depressive.

      The staff could not do enough for us!!! Great bar, full of great people open until late, gorgeous rooms some with balcony, gorgeous food and breakfast on until after midday!!! The limo ride for our party was a fab touch. They will do anything they can for you. Have stayed before and will be staying again!

      Location excellent- staff very helpful and a great breakfast

      2nd trip to this hotel. It has been revonated since our last trip and has been done very well. Staff are really friendly and helpful. The layout of the bar is lovely and the staff there were very nice including the night porter who was very good at his job. Centrally located to Eyre Square and the shopping areas.

      The fact that there is no parking but near a car park. The price for leaving the car for 2 days was €20.00 which I thought was a little dear.

    • Couple
      8.8

      The room was a good size and the bed was massive and very comfortable. The Irish breakfasts were lovely.

      Because of the city centre location, there aren't many rooms with views.

      Staff were helpful,room was lovely,breakfast was hearty, Close to everywhere we wanted to be.

      It was noisy both inside and out during the night, It was a saturday night though.,Bit dissapointing for the price we paid. Renovations ongoing no restaurant or bar available because of this
