What a great place to stay when visiting Galway. A bonus is being out of downtown Galway in the lovely seaside resort of Salthill. The Coolin House B&B is just two blocks from the promenade along the bay. Owners Marian and Tommy were amazing hosts who got us oriented, suggested places to dine and see, and fed us great Irish...

We thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay at Coolin House B&B. Clean room, great breakfast, very friendly host knowledgeable about things to do and see in Galway. It is a hop skip and a jump to the beach which offers great views (of the scenery, the swimming / diving platform where quite a number of residents take recreation and LONG... More

We visited Galway for the first time and did not have any idea where to stay. We were referred to Coolin House by another B&B proprietor and could not have been happier with the experience. Marian is an absolutely perfect host; friendly, helpful and a great cook. Our room was spacious and sparkling clean with a really comfortable bed and... More

We spent two nights in Coolin House with our hostest Marian. The B and B is about a block off the promenade that runs along the seashore of Galway Bay. A bus stop is at the corner which will take you into Galway very cheaply if you want to go there. We attended the Trad on the Prom show (excellent!)... More

Salthill is a suburb of Galway. It is a destination for the Irish with the seashore, casinos and good restaurants. We were ready to be outside of a City and Coolin House was a good choice for us. A short bus ride to the center of Galway, we found Coolin House to be ideal for our needs. Recommended!!

We just finished a lovely three days in Galway. Marian and Thomas are extremely gracious hosts. We asked Marian for a bit of assistance that was above and beyond the normal call of duty and she graciously helped us out. The last night we were there a group of us sat in the living room and chatted until almost 1am.... More

Stayed for one night while we attended a wedding in a nearby hotel. Beautiful house, fantastic breakfast; Marions homemade bread is out of this world. We hope to return very soon.

Had the pleasure of staying here while on our side trip to Galway. Marian is a fantastic hostess: the rooms are very comfortable and the freshly-cooked Irish breakfast was great (don't pass up the HOMEMADE brown bread!). For anyone into outdoor sports, talk to the man of the house: he gave me some great ideas for hiking and fishing in... More

Arrived without a booking and Marion was very welcoming. Our room was small but newly renovated and beautifully clean. Our shower was postage stamp size but our friends had a full size bathroom. We walked into town; a good walk along the beach promenade. The breakfast was cooked to order and could not be faulted. Stay again anytime.
