While Hotel Meyrick has a rich history, standing tall over Eyre Square since 1852; it is its modern-day reputation that makes it the ultimate venue for weddings in Galway city.

Galway is renowned for its unique charm, inimitable atmosphere and warm welcome.

Galway is just as spectacular in the cooler months with a brilliantly festive atmosphere from the traditional Irish music sessions in cosy pubs, bustling Christmas markets on the hotel’s doorstep at Eyre Square and bustling laneways shimmering with festive lights. With its roaring fireplace, sumptuously furnished lounge and cosy bars Hotel Meyrick is a beautiful location for winter weddings. The Connemara Ballroom in particular makes a spectacular backdrop to a winter wedding.
