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

This is situated right across the street from a bird sanctuary and has lovely bay views. The staff could not be more helpful they were very very nice and provided a traditional breakfast. It is not near downtown but there is a bus station within 5 minute walk. I did have a problem with the shower temperature. The rooms were... More

Just had to say something about this place, stayed here may 2015 with 3 mates on a motorcycle holiday in Ireland. Everything about this place is first rate from parking facilities to breakfasts. The rooms were large and very clean and comfortable. Parking right outside isn't a problem for cars or bikes. Breakfasts are fantastic, we were not hungry after... More
