It was certainly the cleanest place we found during our 10-day trip along the Irish coast. The hostes was very helpful with all our questions about where to eat, what to see etc. When the shower did not work properly it was immediately fixed. So we has nothing to complain. Breakfast was good. It is very close to the ocean,... More

We arrived in Galway without any set arrangements. The first Hotel that we tried was booked so we gave a look towards the local B&Bs. We ended up staying two night at the Coolin House. Our room was small but was very clean and comfortable. Location was great! Our stay was right during the world cup soccer finals and Tommy... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Coolin House. Marian and Tommy were great hosts. The house was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was very enjoyable, we had a selection of cooked breakfast, cereals and fresh fruit. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it for its comfort, quality, hospitality and friendliness.

We booked this ages ago having been impressed by reviews but it was such a disappointment that we left two nights early. We were in room 2 which is very badly designed - so small you can't open the cupboards as doors hit end of bed! TV so high up in cupboard you can't see it. However, that was the... More

My husband and I stayed here on our first night of our long-awaited trip to Ireland. We had changes plans last minute as we were going to spend our first night in Dublin rather than Galway. Luckily Marian had a vacancy! Marian was a lovely hostess - very helpful and friendly. The room was quite nice if a tad small.... More

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
