Fodor's Expert Review Jurys Inn Galway
Quay St., Galway City, Co. Galway, Ireland
Expect good-quality budget accommodations at this four-story hotel set beside the historic Spanish Arch and the river. Each room is big enough for three adults, or two adults and two children, and the rates are the same regardless of how many guests stay in each unit. The light, airy rooms have modern pine fittings, plain carpets and walls, double-glaze windows, and fully equipped bathrooms. Those overlooking the river are quieter than those in front. The atmosphere runs toward anonymous international, but the inn is central—at the foot of Galway's busy Quay Street, right on the bank of the Corrib—and the level of comfort is high for the price (note that rates shoot up at peak times, such as during the Galway Races).
- reliable Irish budget hotel chain
- great location for pubs, clubs, and river views
- rates subject to demand, so book early
- favorite for large bachelor/bachelorette parties
