This is an excellent B&B, not at the center of the city, but close enough to walk. The room is clean and the breakfast is great. We stayed on the top floor and the only complaint we have (a slight one at that) is that we wish the water pressure could be a little higher. But this does not diminish... More

Ardawn House B&B was easy to find and has a great location within walking distance of downtown. The owners are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. We needed to do our laundry and they offered to send it at cost to the same laundry they use on a Saturday! The rooms were very nice, clean and quiet. We were a little worried... More

We enjoyed our stay here. It was within walking distance of all the great things to see in Galway, but far enough away to provide a nice quiet room. We stayed in a family room with two teens and a toddler. It was a little cosy, but worked nicely for us. The room and the house itself was clean, the... More

My wife and I read about the Ardawn House in Rick Steves' tour guide book for Ireland. We'd stay here again in a heartbeat. Mike and Breda were absolutely wonderful hosts. Mike greeted us at the door, showed us around and made us feel at home right away. Breda was an incredible cook -- breakfasts were certainly a highlight (complete... More

Ardawn House is close to the center of Galway, so we could walk to everything. Mike and Breda knew just what we should do and see. Having breakfast in the morning was like coming into our own dining room, and I certainly miss the poached eggs and smoked salmon - and the brown bread! Mike gave us a ride to... More

We recentely stayed at this bed and breakfast and couldn't be more satisfied. Excellent rooms, food & hospitality.. Close to all the action but not noisy or crowded. I can't imagine anyone having anything negative to say. 5 stars in our opinion. We will be back. Betty & Gloria

Mike and Breda were very welcoming, friendly and accommodating hosts. The room was comfortable and quiet. The breakfast was excellent and there were several choices available. Good location, walking distance to city centre. Parking and WiFi are included. We would stay at Ardawn House again and would recommend it to a friend.

We recently spent two nights at Ardawn House with Mike and Breda. We found our room and ensuite a tad "tired", however, quite a good size (with a single bed also). Also we found the traffic noise coming from the road was quite loud through most of the night. Within walking distance of Galway which is very handy. Breda is... More
