* We would just like to make you aware, HYDE Bar is one of the most popular bars in Galway, we have live music until 1am every Friday and Saturday and occasionally midweek, however this means sometimes there is going to be some noise at night. We do our best to minimise this, but respectfully, if you are looking for an early night, we might not be the perfect choice for you particularly at the weekends. If you would like more details please contact us on reservations@hydehotel.ie
