Becky's Thoughts On The Sleep Essentials Galway Memory Foam Mattress

The Sleep Essentials Galway Memory Foam Mattress is a new addition to the range from Dreams, featuring high quality memory foam in a rolled format in order to compete directly with many of the ever-growing bed-in-a-box retailers that have sprouted up in recent years.

This product looks to be a beefed-up version of the popular Wexford mattress that features a few changes making it stand out. To start, this mattress is a medium tension firmness grade, still appreciated by many and suitable for the average person. I really like medium tension mattresses as they give enough tension to help with any niggling back or neck support while also providing a good level of comfort for those that do like to sleep on their side occasionally.

This Sleep Essentials Galway Memory Foam Mattress is a single sided mattress saving you the hassle of having to flip it every few months, we do however recommend that you do still rotate the mattress to help prevent that dipping effect that will naturally happen should you create your own little divots over the years.

The core foam component used in this mattress is of good quality and the price does reflect some of that quality, being on the next rung above absolute-budget mattresses, as such the level of quality is higher and helps ensure that you will get the best night's sleep that you can dream of.


What Makes The Sleep Essentials Galway Memory Foam Mattress Great?

Rotate Regularly - Rotate head to toe weekly for the first three months, then every month thereafter

Your mattress should be rotated on a regular basis as this is the easiest way to prolong and increase the longevity of your mattress. The main benefits to regularly rotating your mattress is the continued support and comfort while reducing any risk of sagging that may otherwise occur

Comfort Grade - Medium

A Medium firmness mattress is the most common build offered due to the range of suitability offered in such a mattress. This type of mattress will be better suited toward averagely weighted people, while lighter people should opt for a medium-light, and heavier people considering a medium-firm.

1 year guarantee

1 year guarantee is typical for the industry. This means you are guaranteed to have a trouble free experience for the first year or have your product replaced

Memory Foam layer

Something for the memory foam lovers. Who doesn't love a bit of sinky-floaty and supportive material designed to rebound again and again. Definitely the optimal for comfort in any mattress

Quilted finish with soft-touch knitted fabric

Easy to clean and maintain, this sort of fabric and finish is fairly common on mattresses and won't cause any issues down the line

Supportive foam base

    Reflex foam is extremely supportive and is ideal for those who need extra support for lower and upper back pain. The pressure is spread evenly over large pockets of trapped air distributing the weight outwards from a singular spot. Once the weight is removed the material will spring back into its original shape. It offers an orthopaedic feel keeping the spine aligned, is cheaper than memory foam and there is no 'sinking' feeling.

Soft-touch knitted cover with quilted finish

A mid-range cover of standard construction. The quilted finish adds an additional bit of comfort to your new mattress, although, it's the fillings and support system that accompany that do most of the heavy lifting.

Body-contouring memory foam layer

Memory foam is one of the more comfortable top layers in a mattress. Memory foam will give a sinking feeling of supreme comfort that moulds to your body giving a feeling of support and contouring

Cleverly rolled for added convenience

You've heard of the likes of Eve, Simba, Otty and Nectar, but as these rise in popularity, so does the rolled mattresses experience that customers enjoy. As such we have an entire range on offer of rolled mattresses, all featuring the same sort of specifications but at a more reasonable price point.

Single sided - Rotate head to toe weekly for the first three months, then every month thereafter

A single sided mattress is typical for the industry and relates to how  a mattress has the comfort layer on one side of the mattress. only This means that the mattress only needs to be rotated rather than flipped. The benefit of single sided mattresses is that they require less upkeep in that there's no flipping, but also, there's less components involved in the creation which saves costs.

Rolled for convenience

Roll up mattresses, also known as bed-in-a-box mattresses are fairly new to the scene, first cropping up via the likes of Eve and Simba back in 2016. Since then there has been a rise in popularity due to their lower price point (due to delivery and storage costs) and their convenience for getting up stairs. Typically these mattresses have much the same support and comfort as a traditional mattress even with the positive points mentioned.

Customer Reviews For The Sleep Essentials Galway Memory Foam Mattress

Based on 20 review

Pleasantly surprised

I needed a new mattress in my guest room and after looking at many sites decided to give this one a try. When it arrived I thought I had ordered the wrong size as it was so thin and didn’t fill the base. I opened the plastic wrap and like magic started to expand. After the 48 hours on the instructions I went back to it and was amazed how it had now become what I expect from a double size mattress. The quilted finish made making up the bed with a tight fitting sheet easier than my last one. I laid on the bed and the all round support was amazing. I am not a spring chicken and this new style product impressed me as when I got up my back didn’t ache or complain. I will now be replacing my mattress with one of these and then the spare back bedroom ready for when my family or friends can stop over.


Great mattress

This mattress does the job well and is worth the price. It does not require any topper of any kind, it is very comfortable. Definitely a lot better than any cheaper alternatives you can find Amazon, i can confirm this as i tested those alternatives; they have been binned.


Better Sleep

Sleeping so much better since we got this mattress. Having had a sprung mattress with a foam top before, my back after a few hours was in bit's. Now I can have a full nights sleep without having anywhere near the same amount of pain I had before.


Very Happy

The mattress comes rolled up, so it’s perfect if you are moving house (like we were) as it can be easily stored. The mattress is also very light and very comfortable compared to a spring mattress like we had.


Comfort and support

This mattress provides the perfect balance of comfort and support throughout the night, containing a supportive foam base and a memory foam layer that moulds to the contours of your body.


Awesome Mattress!

So glad I chose this mattress. Perfect softness/hardness for me & I like it semi-hard. Came vacuum packed so was easier for getting up to my flat. Highly recommend



Very comfortable, depresses a little too much for personal use on a TV bed at the edges. But it's been a wonderful night's sleep since we received it.


Comfy mattress

It’s very comfortable and keeps the body contoured and it’s been a nice nights sleep. The mattress has given no issues so far.


Amazing memory foam mattress

I brought this mattress a month ago, it’s the best mattress I’ve ever had. The quality is amazing and it’s so comfortable.


Gateway Memory Foam mattress

Takes a day or two to decompress, and seems quite firm, but we bought this for a guest room so haven’t tried it out yet


A great sleep

One of the most comfortable mattresses I’ve ever owned. I’ve been sleeping so much better since I’ve bought this!


So comfy

I need a firm mattress but not hard, and this mattress fits the bill. Even better that I got it half price.



Best nights sleep I’ve had in years. Me and my partner both sleep on our sides and this moulds perfectly.



Bought as a replacement for almost identical mattress which was also from Dreams a few years ago.



Quickly got into shape and have had a comfortable sleep since I’ve used it.
