Situated in the heart of the city, The House Hotel is a great base whatever your interest or plans.
It's been a while since we've been able to make plans and look forward to things without the threat of lockdown and tight restrictions hanging over us. But with the vaccine rollout and numbers decreasing, we're tentatively planning to see out the rest of the year making up for lost time.
And what better way to kick off the celebrations, than with a girly weekend away filled with long-overdue catch-ups, cocktails and of course, some shopping. The House Hotel is one of the country's most popular hotels for a girls getaway and for good reason. Set in the heart of Galway's Latin Quarter, its location is unrivalled with visitors only minutes away from the buzzy Quay Street, Shop Street, Spanish Arch and the seaside too, with Salthill not far.
Key in these Covid-times, The House Hotel also boasts an outdoor terrace on which guests can sample the summer cocktail menu or equally afternoon tea if it's a little early for bubbles. Food-wise, The House Hotel’s in-house restaurant The Yard Kitchen/Bar has a menu created with the best of ingredients, high-quality Irish meats, locally sourced vegetables and local fresh seafood. There's a wide selection of vegetarian and gluten-free dishes too.
Whatever your idea of a grown-up girls weekend looks like, The House Hotel's prime location means nothing is off the table.
Fancy getting out of the city for the day? Hop on the ferry at Galway Docks (a 5-minute walk from the hotel) and visit the largest of the Aran Islands, Inis Mór in all its rocky glory, taking in the breathtaking Cliffs of Moher on the return leg of the journey.
Alternatively, and a good option should the Galway weather gods not be too kind, there are plenty of museums and art galleries to explore within the hotel's vicinity; highlights include Galway Cathedral, Galway City Museum, Galway Arts Centre and The Kenny Gallery.
The House Hotel's 'Autumn in the City' package includes a two-night stay, freshly cooked-to-order breakfast each morning, two complimentary cocktails and €30 credit for 2 people, to be used on food or drinks during your stay. Prices start €160 per person sharing.
