Forge is the right balance between quality, cost and location. It’s placed in a quiet street yet just a few minutes from some of the best Galway’s pubs and venues. You may sense an imprint of old-time design in the house and it’s very well maintained. The sleeping quality is fine and the room rates are more than competitive. Rooms... More

We stayed here our first two nights in Ireland after driving from Dublin. Dolores is a wonderful host -- very personable and she had great recommendations. When deciding between going to the Aran Islands and Connemara she recommended the latter and we had a tremendous day driving out there and riding ponies on the coast of the North Atlantic. It's...

For me this is exactly what Ireland is about. I absolutely love B&B's with hosts like Delores, she is amazing and welcome us to stay at her lovely old house. Room was really cozy and we absolutely loved our stay in Forge. I do hope I will get chance to stay there again in future when I am heading back... More

We arrived in Galway without a reservation and knocked on the door of the first B&B we came to near the city center. Bernard greeted us cheerfully, expecting someone else, and showed us to the last remaining room. We slept well after an evening in town, and woke up to Delores' good humor and breakfast. The breakfast room was convivial... More

After the long flight from The States and then a 3 hour bus ride from Dublin, Delores' lovely, smiling face was a very welcomed sight. She is a friendly beam of sunshine and she made our stay at The Forge a very positive experience. The location is a short walk to The Latin Quarter and all that Galway has to... More

I had a lovely stay here at this B&B in Galway City. It is in a great location in the center of town, easy to get anywhere, while still being in a nice quiet area. The room itself was very nice, clean, and comfortable; a very welcome thing after a day (or night) walking around Galway. Dolores was an excellent... More

Fine, basic accommodation. It was downright freezing while we were in Galway, so the room was a bit chilly, but we warmed up under the covers. Dolores was an excellent host with great recommendations and she is a great cook. The breakfast was way more than we needed, but all delicious and warming for the day. The location was great....

This is the fourth bed and breakfast I have stayed at during our road trip round ireland. The best yet. Comfy bed, fantastic service and all round great character.

We had a lovely two nights at the Lodge. Dolores made us feel very welcome from the moment we rang the doorbell to the moment we left. The room was clean and comfortable and the breakfasts delicious! We had been tempted to stay closer to the bay but this was definitely the best choice. So close to all the bars... More

My friend and I recently stayed at the Forge for 3 nights. It was adorable and clean. Dolores is amazing and she is great cook! If you are looking for a quaint place to stay in Glaway look no further! The rates are reasonable as well!
