We had a super weekend at the Skeff, very friendly staff and great food and excellent service . The room was very well maintained and super clean. Just outside the hotel the Christmas market was going and was very enjoyable The Skeffngton Hotel is in a great location right in the middle of the city centre convenient to train and bus stations and great shopping outlets.

Great stay in Galway!
We loved our stay! The room was spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was good and we enjoyed the bar food as well. Perfect location for a stay in Galway. We'd definitely stay here again.

Plan to "enjoy" the nightlight if you stay here.
The hotel is lovely and in a beautiful location. Service was good. My friend and I arrived very tired from America, had dinner and a drink and fell asleep at 9:30pm. We were woken at 10:30 pm to music that vibrated us in our beds. Little did we know there were two clubs outside our window and a bar in our building. We actually laughed at the absurd loudness of being surrounded by three clubs. Knowing no sleep was to be had, we got dressed and went out. Both nights things quieted down around 2:30am. If you don't plan on early nights and mornings it is a great place to stay.

Poor 2.0
worst hotel stay ever!!!!!!
this hotel is on top of six bars. It’s super loud 7 days a week till after 2am each night. The walls and floors boom like a fast heartbeat and music gets turned up louder at 1am. Patrons are up and down hallways laughing screaming knocking on doors and yelling because they are drunk. You have to park multiple city blocks away and walk back through all the drunkenness to the hotel with luggage. Staff do not offer assistance with luggage and are very non apologetic for the noise and issues. They blame you for booking with them saying they disclose all this on the website. They will not allow u to change hotels and as soon as I asked about it they charged my entire stay up front without telling me as if to show me that I was screwed for even thinking about changing. The fire alarm even went off and woke up everyone who then could not get back to sleep. Breakfast is supposed to be served till noon but at 11 the restaurant refuses you entrance for it. I did not have kids but would tell anyone who does not to stay here as it’s not a good environment. Also don’t stay if you want a good nights sleep.

It's a Great Place
This hotel has.great ambiance and good service. The rooms are updated. The included breakfast was spectacularly good--hot food cooked to order, and a large buffet with delicious things in a charming and comfortable space--I think upstairs of a pub? There is no better location for enjoying all that Galway has to offer. Yes, we did use the ear plugs provided in the room and they worked just fine. I would stay here again if I were to return to Galway.
