A fine guesthouse, fairly central to Galway. On arrival we were made to feel really welcome by two very friendly members of staff. The rooms themselves were clean and spacious, and the beds were great. Would stay again! My only issue was the lack of outlets. Luckily we always bring extension leads with us, to plug our phones and things... More

Fantastic b&b which had more of a boutique hotel feel including chocolates on the pillow and access to the expresso machine. Rates are more than fair with a range of breakfast options. Excellent value. Lots of facilities including a common room and computer hubs. Great parking too.

We really enjoyed our stay and the staff helped us with getting a cab into and back out of town. The Wi-Fi was pretty good here, compared to most places which were "iffy." The cottage was well appointed, with a kitchenette and a full bath/shower. The rooms were comfortable, and the living room had plenty of space for four of... More

Friendly staff, clean rooms and very comfortable. We stayed two nights as part of our family vacation. Breakfast was very good, adequate selection. Location was ok, somewhat close to attractions and beach. Depending on your arrival time, you may have to buzz for someone on the intercom. A bit on the expensive side.

And dog friendly! Made a work trip very convenient as there was a family emergency and I had to travel with the furry friend. Rooms were lovely and so was the location. Great for evening and morning walks. Thanks!
