Room was lovely, clean and warm, we were expecting it to be noisy but we didn't hear anything at all and it was a Friday night - (The Crunchies were a nice touch, by the way) Staff were lovely and helpful
Great hotel! Perfect location in the very centre of Galway. The only downside was noise coming from the pub downstairs despite closed windows and drawn curtains. I'd say this is the only thing folks at the Skeff need to work on. Otherwise, pure bliss:)
great place,galway has the craic!!!!!!!only problem was no car park,well done skeff.
really enjoyed our stay at the skeff, beautiful bedroom, great location, fantastic bar, breakfast not great through , sausages weren't cooked, but it won't stop us from staying again, we will be back, thanks very much
Stayed here on a short mid week break, thought it was fantastic, staff very friendly, location ideal, and even made use of the free entry into the hotels nite club. Room was brilliant, fantastic shower, very clean, neat and tidy, lovely selection of teas.
All in all a great night was had and we are already planing a return visit, pity it was only for the one night.
Great Location, very clean, staff very helpful, breakfast excellent. Will definately be back.
Brilliant Hotel, excellent location, staff were great, everything went really well, the only downside is the parking is a bit of a treck and with suitcases etc it's a bit of a nightmare but apart from that we had a great stay and would definitely go back!
Excellent ,well situated hotel for a fun night in Galway. Don't come for the peace and quiet !!
Tidy and clean enviorment. Good service and especially yummy breakfast in the morning.

We enjoyed our recent stay at the Skeff, helped by the sweltering weather that hit Galway last week. Galway is a great short-break location, and the Skeff is centrally located on Eyre Square. I parked my car in Dyke Rd about 10 mins walk away, but could have used their car-park offer (€9 for 24 hours).
Check-in was quick, friendly, and efficient. The room was adequate, with a decent sized bathroom. They put us in a quiet part of the hotel.
The breakfast range was good - plenty of choice, and the staff were very attentive.
It exceeded my expectations, and I'll be back.
Staff were very friendly, rooms were lovely, very central to shops. Very enjoyable stay.
We had a great time at the Skeffington hotel!
Great room, extremely friendly staff, fab brekkie & great price
Would deffo return!
Other hoteliers need to take a leaf from their book!
Nice and clean , very helpful staff , pity we couldn't work the air conditioner
I stayed in the Skeffington Arms Hotel last weekend (december 9th). The rooms were warm and cosy. The beds are very comfortable. Each room had a plasma tv. On arrival we were met with a very friendly smile and quick and efficient check in. However, the reception area was a bit grubby. After getting our room keys we headed up to our room via the lift service. The lift smelled awful. Like smelly feet and stale vomit. And the outer landing wasn't much better. However after going through the door that leads to the main landings there was a big change. Landing smelled beautiful. Carpets were spotless and painted walls were very clean. Our rooms were spotless from the immaculate bathroom to clean floors and carpets. The breakfast was gorgeous and carvery in the bar was very tasty. Every member of staff I encountered were so friendly and helpful. So top marks for that. Location fantastic too. All in all a very good hotel for location, cleanliness and friendliness.
All the Staff were very friendly and professional.. The breakfast was excellent providing a wide variety of food, with lots of healthy options as well as the traditional options. The location is very convenient. Good value for money and worth a return visit. Five star rating
We had a great time in this hotel. The location is fantastic as it's right in the heart of Eyre Square and beside the bus and train station. The staff in the Skeffington Hotel are the nicest, most friendly and helpful we have ever encountered. The room was warm and cosy, if a little basic, the food and entertainment were both very good and we will definitely go back again.
great value and ideally located on eyre square, in the centre of everything. the staff were very helpfull and polite emma on reception was so freindly and very professional. The rooms were plenty big lovely big bed and were kept very clean, they have a lovely big shower. We had included in price 2 course evening meal lovey fresh food & staff again so friendly and what a great breakfast we got and again more great staff. We will stay here again the next time we are in galway its a wee gem of a hotel. Thanks for making our stay so wonderful
We stayed in the Skeff for 2 nights & could not fault it one bit. One of the nicest hotels we have stayed in & the staff were so friendly & couldn't have been nicer. Will definitely stay here again the next time in Galway
Very friendly staff, great location. Our only complaint was that the rooms were slightly on the small side as we had our 5 month old with us. There wasn't a lot of room for his cot.
But other than that we had a very enjoyable stay. Thanks to all at the Skeff.
Had a wonderful stay in the Skeftington Arms, lovely room, beautiful food and friendly staff. Couldn't fault a thing and would happily go back again.
what an absolute pleasure it is for me to write such a positive review on this hotel. firstly at 35 euro per head it was great value, secondly it is ideally located on eyre square, in the centre of everything. thirdly the staff were helpfull polite and very professional, finally the rooms were plenty big and were kept very clean, they had a fine big shower and what a breakfast we got. needless to say the next time i'm in galway its the skeffington for me. thanks for making my stay in galway a good one
Great location. Clean room.
Great hotel, the staff were all very nice,the only problem we had was with the heating system in the room
is is not a standard rad , its a hot air system controlled by a remote control. it did not work ,we stayed in a cold room for the night. , the manager tried to fix it but he was not able . But we would still go back again .
Breakfasts are very nice,Restaurant and Bar food good, Staff helpful and pleasant stayed for two nights. Situated on Eyre Square near train and bus station. Near Shops. Alice stayed 13 to 15 Feb 2011
