Situated just off Eyre Square, the hotel is right in the centre of the city offering the freedom to explore Galway’s many attractions.
Enjoyed our stay , found staff very friendly especially James in bar, great personality. rooms clean tidy, little small, only one thing I had asked for a room at back away from noise, was put in 212, which was fine but had central heating system directly outside window. Over enjoyed weekend.

The location of the hotel very close to Eyre Square ...
The location of the hotel very close to Eyre Square was its best feature. The room was small and very basic. The first room offered to us was overlooking the central courtyard which was filthy and very noisy as there was a generator and/or large kitchen extraction fan unit on full blast. We asked to switch rooms and the 2nd room was overlooking Forster Street which was an improvement, although the 2nd room had no wardrobe or anywhere to store clothes!!! Breakfast was fine. If you are simply looking for somewhere central to lay your head after a long night out in Galway, this would do the trick. The majority of the guests did appear to be stag/hen parties. If you are looking for some comfort and somewhere you will want to spend a bit of time whilst awake, do not book this hotel!

I had stayed in the Forster Court previously a weekend ...
I had stayed in the Forster Court previously a weekend with my girlfriend and found it a top class hotel. I was on a stag in Galway last weekend so booked the Forster Court again and the service was every bit as good. The rooms are a great size with lovely decor and the staff are very friendly! Nuno (the Portuguese barman/waiter) was a great laugh and all the lads on the stag found him accommodating. There was a blonde girl serving breakfast-she was easy on the eye and she had a lovely way about her so she got top marks too. Breakfast was gorgeous and there was as much of whatever you wanted. Overall the Forster Court is a top class hotel for a budget price! It's location is perfect for anyone wanting to be in the centre of the city. Will be stating there again. Thumbs up guys.
