The Marian Lodge was clean, welcoming and friendly. Celina was the perfect hostess who did a good full irish Breakfast. She was very helpful when we were planning our days touring. The rooms were comfortable and spacious and the hot water was plentiful unlike some of the bigger hotels. WiFi was also easy to access and you did not need... More

The guest house is located just outside of Galway along the coast within walking distance of the beaches. The rooms were very spacious and nicely decorated with Rococo furniture. Our breakfast was excellent as well. Our hostess was very helpful with everything from arranging bus tours to getting our laundry done to recommending very good places to eat. We stayed... More

Our arrival perhaps intruded on a family meal as when we arrived at 6.15 the door was opened by a young woman who asked what we wanted. We had booked 2 nights through a visitor centre and indicated we would arrive late afternoon. We were told to wait there, the door closed and we stood wondering if we had come... More

We stayed two nights and Celine went out of her way to get us what we liked for breakfast and our room was bright and sunny. We had beautiful weather while there. She also recommended Kylemore where we took the best photos. Celine is a wealth of information and we would come back just to stay with her. Thank you... More

We stayed here and I must say the service was fantastic. On arrival we were made very welcome. The location was superb and the house was very clean, spacious and comfortable with tea/coffee facilities. A special mention to Celine who made us feel very welcome on arrival and throughout our stay couldn't have been more helpful and nice to make... More

We stayed here to tour Connemara from. The bus picked us up from almost the door, for the hop on hop off bus tour and the trip to the Aran Islands, the scenery is fantastic. Celine was so helpful with organising our pick-ups. The bus to town is at the door so you can explore Galway to your hearts content.... More

A very warm welcome from Celine, the proprieter. Lovely clean, comfortable accomodation in a good location with access to the town, a little further than we would want to walk but a bus stop just around the corner. Not a great choice of places to eat nearby but within walking distance from Galway Golf Club where we enjoyed a good,... More
