The Glencree B&B is a cozy little B&B located approximately 10 minutes walking distance from Galway City Centre and is on a quiet little street. The proprietor Mrs. Maureen Nolan was the extremely kind and the perfect host. She was able to answer our questions and provide directions to points of interest nearby. The room was clean and tidy.

Mureen, the host, was superfrienldy and very polite! She told us a little bit about the town and then showed us the room which was big, nice and very clean. (free wi-fi in all the rooms!) The bathroom was big and clean too! The next morning we had the biggest surprise: Maureen made for us a wonderful irish breakfast, and... More

I just have to start with the first impression, because it wasn't good and it really should be fixed (everything else was just fine). The main entrance to Maureen's B&B is through sliding glass doors in to a kind of sun room. Not the greatest; but the worst part is that this is the smoking room. I believe that her... More

We stayed with Maureen for 3 nights in early October. Aside from some initial trouble in finding the place the first night, our stay was very good and Maureen could not be a better host. The B&B is about a 10-15 minute walk from the main center of town, easy peasy and a good way to walk of some of... More

Stayed here for one night and it is only a ten minute walk to the city centre. The first thing that hits you when you walk into the lobby is a stale smell of smoke! Not a problem though as once lovely Maureen has taken you to your room the smell has gone. It was very cosy and clean but... More

We loved staying at this B&B while traveling with my husband and his parents. Maureen couldn't have been more welcoming. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The location was good (15-20 minutes walk to city center, 5-10 to Salthill). It's close to the boardwalk along Galway Bay which is really nice. I would truly recommend this place most of all... More

We spent here just one night but everything was perfect: our host was so friendly and nice and the breakfast she made for us was really good! The position is very good: you can reach the city center with a short walk, and the seasside was realy close! The room was big and clean and so the beathroom (not so... More

This a lovely B&B with clean and comfortable rooms located a ten minute walk from the Galway outdoor walking mall. Maureen is a wonderful ambassador for Ireland and exemplifies Irish hospitality. She gave us the best advice about where to go and what to see during our very short stay, and also prepared a lovely breakfast that filled us up... More

Superb location, excellent breakfasts, and great hosts (Helen and Kim). Only minor criticism would be lack of shower in our room. Out of 100....99%. Honesty bar was also a nice touch. Would definitely recommend.

Maureen Nolan, the owner of this bed & breakfast, was very helpful. She arranged all our tours, and was very accommodating when we needed to have breakfast early on our last day in order to catch a flight at Shannon Airport. The breakfasts were very filling and delicious and you are given several choices that you make a day ahead... More
