I found the rooms to be a little tight, but this being said we were staying on the top floor which would be the converted loft space so this would be expected. The host Ann was extremely friendly and attentive, great for - 5 stars for Ann! The breakfast was all you would expect and included in the very resonable... More

Griffin Lodge and Ann were wonderful! Ann made our stay pleasant and easy and she was so helpful with suggestions on sights and places to visit. Would highly recommend a stay at Griffin Lodge and Galway.

It's not big or fancy, but it is warm and friendly, mostly due to Ann who is the manager and a person who is one of the friendliest and most helpful B&B hosts we have ever encountered. Because we had made a reservation for 2 nights, Ann had our parking space saved right in front of Griffin Lodge and was... More

We stayed for 2 nights during a very busy weekend in July. Ann is by far the most friendly and down to earth host we've encountered during our 2 week travels throughout Ireland. She is was very helpful in answering our questions about what to see and do in Galway and Conemara. Breakfast was excellent, especially the coffee and Ann... More

On our arrival at Griffin Lodge we were greeted by Ann like old friends as we had previously stayed here last year. Considering the amount of people that come to stay i was pleasantly surprised that she remembered us. We even hd the same room as last year, which of course was just as comfortable as we remembered. Our initial... More

Stayed for 2 nights. It's a 5 minute stroll to town. The room was tidy and a good size. Breakfast was really good. Owner was really lovely and helpful. Only minor niggles were poor wifi reception in room and some noise floating through from the next room. Would definitely recommend.

The lady who runs this is probably the best B and B hostess in Ireland. She was great when we checked in early, and treated us with respect and appreciation. She gave us great advice on how to get to the Aran islands, and was a wonderful host, accommodating our early breakfast departure. Unlike some of the B and B's... More

I felt welcomed right from the first knock on the door! Anne was very knowledgable and booked us a tour as we put away our luggage and had a bus come out and pick us up right at the door! Breakfast was excellent and the shower was to die for after a full day of exploring! Best B&B I have... More

Spent two nights here in June. Had a ground floor room which was a treat after two weeks of climbing stairs at other places. Ann could not be more welcoming. She definitely makes you feel as home offering suggestions for sights and restaurants. Breakfast is to order and delicious. An easy walk into town and quiet for a good night's... More
