After a rather tiring drive from Dublin (having just experienced a long flight from the US and 6-hour time difference -- to say nothing of white-knuckle) our party of four was welcomed most graciously and instantly made at home. We were provided excellent directions to key restaurants and pubs in town, which turned out to be a very short walk... More

I was very happy to find a single room here on a busy Friday night in Galway. I thought it was a lovely house and that the breakfast was tasty. . The location between Salthill and town suited me well. Would stay here again.

Sorry to say that we failed to see the charm of this B&B. Somehow the magic welcome which the positive reviewers received was not for us. There was, in fact, just a mild feeling of being something to put up with. Good beds and a quiet room, yes. Space to put our suitcases and still walk around our beds -... More

We had a great stay at this B&B. Bridie was very kind and helpful. We coordinated our group with the Roncalli House that is right across the street. The location was within walking distance of a couple of Pubs, our favorite being the Cottage Bar about 10 mins or so. We stayed in 4 B&B's on our trip and this... More

This was the first B & B we stayed at when we went to Ireland. Birdie was so wonderful and gave a warm welcome to weary travelers. Honestly, I felt as though I was home visiting with Mom :-) Birdie's home was very cozy and comfortable and she is a great cook! I regret that we didn't take any photos... More

We had a lovely stay at The Rock Lodge B&B. We hadn't booked anything for the evening and were pointed to The Rock Lodge by another local B&B. On arrival Bridie was very welcoming and friendly and got us sorted in our room straight away, made us comfortable and allowed us to settle in. The room was nice and clean... More

The Rock Lodge is a beautiful house, but the rooms are quite small. The bathroom barely offers room to move and the shower is claustrophobic. However, the common areas are well-decorated and comfortable and the hostess Bridie is sweet as can be. Her breakfast was good too. The location is close to the city centre and is an easy walk,...

The hostess, Bridie, is a friendly, helpful gal, very personable The home is nicely appointed with antiques and reproductions, original artwork, and is clean and comfortable. Breakfast was fresh and very nice. There is... More

Hostess was nice, breakfast was good. Be aware you have stairs to carry your luggage up. Bathroom was small. Walking distance into the city center. It's on a main road, so unfortunately it was quiet noisy throughout the night with traffic and people walking/chatting. Private parking, but could be tricky depending on how many guests are there.
