Clean, spacious room walking distance to all the shops and pubs. The Western Hotel was a great place to stay in Galway. Friendly, helpful staff in the hotel, restaurant, and bar. The food in the restaurant was terrific and reasonably priced. Would definitely stay here again!

Convenient location by all the Galway nightlife, but far enough to get a quiet night's sleep. Walls are pretty thin and you can hear your neighbors snoring. Other than that, I enjoyed my stay.
