When we arrived we were shown to a attic room with a skylite. The room was well presented but it was clostraphobic. Luckily we were offered another room. So am grateful for the assistance. This accomodation is nice but the shower is in need of a deep clean to remove mould. Bed was average. Breakfast on both days was served... More

My friend and I stayed here for three days, it is situated outside of Galway but there is a bus station up the road that takes you right into the Galway. Ann was a wonderful hostess, she arranged to have our tour buses to pick us up at the B&B which was wonderful and made us feel right at home.... More

Within a 10 minute drive of Galway. Pretty view of the bay from our second floor room. Hostess was not intrusive; told us all we needed to know in 5-10 minutes. Room was a bit cramped for 3 people, especially with access to our double bed limited to one side only (surrounded by walls on 2 sides and nearly up... More

The guesthouse is a fair way from the City centre, so unless you have the time and inclination for a good, bracing (but very picturesque) walk along the bay, you will need to factor in the cost of taxis (approx €15 to town centre/€20 to the race course). The rooms were well equipped and the beds comfy. The bathroom was... More

Our stay at Rusheen Bay House B&B was a last minute booking that we made after escaping another very disappointing b&b in the area. Ann took the time to show us around the b&b, which is comfy, clean, and nicely styled, before we decided to book with her. She was very friendly and accommodating for our entire two-night stay. We...

Great view, very clean and comfortable B&B. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms are a little small and could benefit from a shelf and towel bars/hooks in the toilet. It's located on the sea walk but it's a long walk to downtown. A taxi was about 12€. Inwould definitely recommend staying here despite the small rooms.

This is what a real Bed and breakfast should be like! Great location only a few minutes out of Galway Centre, great host greeting guests with a smile, comfy bed, powerful shower and very clean room. I'll be back!

Our hostess, Ann, was very hospitable and welcoming. She was so helpful with directions and arranging tours for us with pick-up outside the door or across the street! Breakfasts were very good with a wide variety of selections. Although a wee bit hard to find, quiet location and rooms were very clean and beds comfortable. Lovely view of the ocean... More

We stayed here with our daughter for 2 days. The house and the room was very clean. The beds were very comfortable. Lovely strong and hot shower. When we arrived the owner was not in but left a very friendly and helpful lady in charge. She even booked us a trip to the Aran Island when we asked. Breakfast was... More
