Stayed here for a night due to its excellent location which is central to everything. Has the feel of a hostel but has so much more. Stayed in a single room which had ever thing you need. Two slight negatives, there was only a rather old & dusty blind on the window and the bathroom was a bit tight but... More

This B&B is only a short walk across and along canals to the heart of Galway City and all its pubs with traditional music, restaurants, and the street scene. Couldn't ask for anything much closer! The rooms are nice and clean, have TVs and WiFi, and private baths. When we were there in July, the weather was especially hot for... More

When booking this B&B the rooms looked lovely, roomy and comfortable. Well looks can be deceiving, the room was very small, and the bathroom was equally as small. The only positive to this room was location, it is walking distance to the city center which by the way is just wonderful. I must also say that there was a refrigerator... More

Excellent place, kind host, easy walking distance to the pubs and local activities. Highly recommend the Desota House. We stayed here on our first night and Ireland and the hostess was very helpful and very easy to talk to. Thank you!!!

The location was perfect! Very convenient to the town. The breakfast was good and there was plenty of it. The rooms were clean and cheerful. The owners were nice and helpful. I would certainly stay here again.

stayed here the night before an exam and was very happy with it. The room I had was a very good size with a very large and comfortable bed. Breakfast the next morning was lovely, and the gentleman who was working was very courteous and friendly. My room was at the front and the thin windows meant the people walking... More

Stayed here for 3 nights, very easily accessible and good location for touring the areas both inside and outside of the city. Rooms are nice, well equipped and comfortable beds. Only negative was the shower, the head was loose which meant it was difficult to control and there was a shower curtain hanging in place of where a door once... More

Stayed here with friends for the new year. A lovely B&B, nice clean rooms and easy walk into town. The gentleman who welcomed us was so lovely and friendly. Made us feel right at home, gave us glasses for out champagne and even let breakfast (delicious) go on longer than usual on new years day! Would definitely stay again.

We stayed here for 2 nights having chosen it for the location. We weren't disappointed, as it is only about a 10 minute walk from the centre. There is plenty of off-street parking and though situated on a main road, we had a room at the back which was very quiet. Criticisms (the reason, therefore, for 4 stars rather than... More
