We stayed two nights with Carmel and that is the only B&B that we stayed in more than one night during our two week tour. Easy to find, easy walk but maybe a bit long for some into town center. The Aquarium and waterfront are right there. The house is clean and cozy, breakfast was very nice but the best... More

Located on a quiet residential street close to Galway in one direction and along Salthill beaches in the other, do not miss the walk along the beaches. The ensuite room was clean, neat and comfortable serving all the needs of we travelers. The nice views of the garden from the dining room made the delicious, ample breakfast even more enjoyable....

Great B&B in lower Salthill, five minutes walk to the tourist area of Galway town. The guest house was quiet & clean. Much like the house, the owners were accommodating and charming. Our en suite bathroom was very small, but clean and fully equipped. The full Irish breakfast was one of the best I've had.

We arrived in the afternoon only to be ushered to a B&B down the street, of much more modest quality. I wish we could have stayed here because when I reserved our room more than two months earlier, it had looked very welcoming.

This property is a mix of "ye olde world" with just the right modern mix. Carmel, the woman of the house, is such a warm welcoming person who makes you feel so much at home. Bedroom very comfortable, and lovely fluffy towels (changed daily) Great selection of food for breakfast, from the continental to the big Irish Fry. Ideal location,... More

My friends and I had a stayed at Roncalli House in early April. The location was ideal in proximity to city center Galway. We stayed in a duplex room that was a bit dated but very comfortable nonetheless . I would recommend Rocalli House if you're looking for a B&B close to Galway.

For the fourth time we had been guest in this beautiful B&B close to the town center of Galway with its nice music pubs, shopping area and outdoor activities. Even Chelsea Clinton the daughter of ex US President Clinton was guest here. Great compliments for the warm staying there.

We loved our stay here! It was very comfortable, clean and we slept well; and the food great. With in walking distance of town center with out the hustle and bustle of it. Carmel was very helpful in getting us where we needed to go.

Carmel is a sweetheart of a woman running a basic B&B. The whole place has an appealing faded gentility, much like your grandmother's house. The twin room was clean, bright, airy...and a bit small. Beds were fine and linens above average. The bathroom was itsy bitsy. Wifi was great. Breakfast is average--no fresh produce, but there is canned fruit available.... More
