Hotel Meyrick

Galway


Since its establishment in 1852, the Railway Hotel - later known as the Great Southern Hotel and in recent years as Hotel Meyrick - has been a by-word for exquisite luxury and excellence in Galway. It has been intrinsically tied in to the history of Galway since the mid-nineteenth century and many notable and historic figures have been welcomed across the threshold from heads of state, kings and princes to adventurers, soldiers, writers and actors. The hotel was acquired by Edward in 2006, when the Irish State sold its interest in the Great Southern Hotel Group. Edward embarked on a period of refurbishment to make the property more desirable to guests and visitors alike.
