I arrived shortly before 3pm. The proprietor opening the door and asked "what happened to 1 o'clock?" (A time she had told me the previous day that the room would be ready from.) She followed this by asking what was the point in having a phone if I wasn't going to answer it. The atmosphere was both awkward and strange.... More

Ann is a real character - welcoming host with lots of spunk. Good breakfast. We liked the location in West Belfast as it was good for nightlife (the bars are less touristy on once you get out of the downtown area on the other side of the river). We had booked an en-suite room and the bathroom was private but... More

Griffin Lodge is nothing fancy but it does everything one should expect from a moderately priced B&B and more. The rooms are fine -- not luxurious but spotless. The location is ideal - quiet but a short walk from the hubub of Galway and its pubs. Ann is incredibly friendly and helpful. When I had to leave before breakfast, she... More

What an absolutely incredible find...Anne you were such a Joy, above and beyond to make my husband and I feel so welcome.

There are many great things about Griffin Lodge --- its location (easy walk into the medieval part of town), how quiet it is, its proximity to the best restaurants in Galway,its excellent breakfasts, its clean rooms. But the best is Ann, the heart of the place. She greets you warmly, serves you breakfast with a smile, shows real interest in... More

We absolutely loved the Griffin Lodge and Ann was the best innkeeper & hostess! She printed our boarding passes, acquainted us to her great city, cooked us terrific food, helped me charge my phone overnight, and was all around charming and knowledgeable. We would definitely recommend the Lodge. It was very convenient to the city; only a few blocks walk... More

The Griffin Lodge Guesthouse lives off the good spirit of Anne. She is extremely forthcoming and helpful and tries to make everything possible. The rooms are very small and barely have space enough to move around. In our room, we couldn't walk around the bed, because we had to cramp our luggage in there. Anyway, it's very clean and the...

Very nice stay in Griffin Lodge thanks to the warm welcome from Anna. The rooms are small, but the neighborhood is very quiet, which is more important to spend a good night! We need only 5 minutes to walk to the city center or to the beach: perfect situation!

My sister and I were fortunate to find Griffin Lodge through TripAdvisor. We spent a few nights here and it was just delightful! The accomodations are nice, the whole house is tidy, clean, authentic, and in a quiet location not too far from town. Honestly, it felt like home. Ann was very welcoming, kind, informative, and treated us like family.... More

We have spent two nights at this B&B. It all starts and ends with two main parameters- the location of the B&B (within 5 minutes walk from the lovely nightlife entertainment area) and the BIGGGEST thing is Ann- Ann took care of us even ahead of our arrival. Helped us with the luggage and was more than happy to answer... More
