Just got off Griffin lodge after a great weekend at Galway and it was so much better after visiting this great little hotel. Anne is so helpful and such a great host you just forget that you are actually paying to stay there. The best welcoming ever. Room was great and cosy, breakfast was very good. One of the best...

Enjoyed our stay, Anne made it so special for us. She greeted us upon arrival and gave us directions to town and restaurants. The rooms are small, bathrooms also, but it is considered a B&B instead of a Lodge, it is clean and comfy. The walk into Galway took us about 10 minutes, right into the heart of town, shopping,...

We were planning on the fly and dropped into this lodge day of. Very friendly, helpful and welcoming. Everyone working there took an interest in all the guests. Just a few blocks from Spanish Arch. We stayed for 2 days. Rooms were clean and cozy. Reasonably priced as well. Nothing not to like.

The was a little small but comfortable. The hostess was very helpful. Breakfast offered a lot of choice, even for us vegans. It's just 10 minute walk from the city center so it was quiet but conveniently located.

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

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.
