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

I had the pleasure of staying at Griffin Lodge for four nights, the end of May. Ann made it a wonderful stay. She was very welcoming, truly made you feel like she cared about you and any questions you might have or help you might need. She is a hard worker and makes anything you want for breakfast. The Griffin... More

We stayed at Griffin Lodge less than a week ago and had a great time. Ann is amazing and very knowledgeable about bus tours from Galway (we had not rented a car), local attractions and places to eat and hear music. She made our stay so special! Griffin Lodge is comfortable, clean and close to the city center but far... More

We hadn't booked anything for our evening in Galway but my Girlfriend had previously stayed at Griffin Lodge before and had a great experience. Unfortunately on this occasion the B&B wasn't open, although Ann pointed us in the direction of a great B&B in the area. Having met Ann for the first time I feel compelled to write a review... More

We stayed for a night in Galway and were glad to have stumbled upon a real gem of a B&B. Just a short walk from the centre but far enough from the crowds, nice rooms and a good breakfast. All for a decent price with a welcoming host thrown in for good measure.

Ann was priceless during our stay in Galway. Gave us great suggestions on where to eat and helped us with arrangements for our bus tour. A bit of a walk from downtown Galway, but well worth it. Some of the best full Irish breakfast anywhere. Would definitely stay again when in Galway.
