Galway's madcap city centre is bursting with authentic old Irish pubs and Guinness-swilling locals on the cobbled streets of the Eyre Square, and this place is set on the main Dublin Road – with easy access right into the thick of the action. The rooms are modern and stylish and all have en-suite bathrooms with power showers, as well as complimentary WiFi. This hotel also has a serious swish restaurant that serves upmarket food, alongside a relaxed bar serving cocktails and Irish whiskey. There's even An Pucan, the hotel's sister pub, that is renowned for live music and unbelievable craic. And, you've got a stunning leisure suite – featuring a 20m pool, a sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi. Ideal for hangover recovery.
