The Dean Galway Design led boutique hotel

The Dean Galway is Galway City’s first ever design – led boutique hotel. This new Galway hotel offers super comfortable bespoke hotel rooms that are filled with gadgets, treats and plenty of stuff to make you smile. A slice of boutique bliss in the heart of Galway, one of Europe’s friendliest cities.

The 100 bed boutique hotel pans over 5,000 square metres. The hotel, located a stone’s throw from Eyre Square, is a perfect blend of old and new. The building incorporates unique historic structures, including a portion of the Galway to Clifden railway tunnel built in the 1890s, and a two-storey stone building originally built in the 1830s. These unique features have been meticulously restored and incorporated into the design of this brand-new hotel.

The Dean Galway offers up luxurious spaces for both work and play with plenty of options to eat and drink. Including, Sophie’s Restaurant & Rooftop Terrace which boasts spectacular views of Galway City, as well as the West of Ireland’s very first Elephant & Castle. Our boutique hotel will also soon be home to POWER Gym, Galway’s newest and coolest gym.

The Dean Galway has so much going on under one roof. From the top, Sophie’s Rooftop Restaurant and Terrace dishes up excellent food with a side of stunning views over Galway city. The West’s very first Elephant & Castle restaurant, renowned for its famous chicken wings, dishes up hearty, home cooked dishes since it first opened in Dublin’s Temple Bar in 1989, has undoubtably become a popular fixture on Galway’s buzzing food scene.

POWER Gym, opening in summer 2022, is a luxury, boutique health club, and the first of its kind in Galway City. Guests can enjoy world class fitness experiences or relax in the outdoor heated pool, sauna and steam room. Located on the Lower Ground Floor of The Dean, the gym utilises and highlights the original vaulted brickwork railway tunnel, making it one of the most striking features of the hotel. POWER will offer two unique class concepts; POWER Box and POWER Run. Delivered by some of Ireland’s best trainers, these high intensity classes are designed to push you to new fitness heights while making the whole experience enjoyable and fun.

The Dean are creative partners of the Irish Museum of Modern Art, and proud providers of The Dean Arts Studio, a dedicated artistic hub and cultural space in Dublin which provides over 20 artists with free of charge studio space. At The Dean Galway, art is a prominent feature across the building. The art collection, curated by Sync & Swim, aims to promote and support Irish art, particularly regional artists local to the hotel.
