We (four couples) stayed here for one night while attending a wedding in nearby hotel. The owners are so friendly and helpful. Very clean and beautiful house. Breakfast was gorgeous the next morning. Would definitely recommend staying here!!

The owners pay attention to detail with everything and are extremely helpful and friendly. The breakfast is homemade and the rooms are clean and furbished nicely. I would highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast for everybody who is travelling around the country and is looking for accommodation close to Galway City Centre.

A friend recommended this B & B for good service, close to the University campus and the city of Galway, peace and care of the hosts and the fact is that he was right, the hosts are very polite and worry that everything you need is within your reach and even care about your planning, not to miss the full...

I stayed here for four nights with my Mum, we had a lovely stay and would recommend to friends and family. Marie and Matt were friendly, helpful and very welcoming. The breakfasts were great, lots of choice and they catered for me being vegetarian. The guesthouse is a bit out of the center but with a very regular bus service... More

I was very happy indeed to discover Almara Houlse in Galway. It is a 4* guest house AA and RIAC and the welcome, the room, the breakfast and the hosts are superb and I have no hesitation in promising that you will not be sorry if you stay there. The nearest thing i have to a complaint is that the... More

We were so glad we chose Almara House to stay at for our night in Galway. We were able to park right in front of the B&B and easily unload. Matt was such a friendly host and he directed us to the bus stop on the street right outside of the B&B that took us downtown for the night. The... More

My daughter and I loved the place. It was one of the easier B&B's to find, our room was beautiful, and Matt and Marie were so welcoming and helpful when we arrived. Matt gave us directions into town so we wouldn't have to drive anymore, which we both appreciated. The beds were comfy, the room had a great heating system,... More

Our room was very modern, clean, and tasteful- the bed was also comfortable. There was even a small fridge in the room with two wine glasses and a bottle of tap water as well. The bathroom was small, but functional and clean! Right outside of the room there was a hot drink station with numerous teas and coffee and a... More

This was our second visit to Almara House, having discovered Matt and Marie's lovely B & B two years ago. As usual they were most helpful and knowledgeable. The rooms are furnished beautifully, and are a nice size. Breakfasts are delicious, as Marie is an excellent cook. Matt is kind and will share his wisdom regarding the area. They go... More

Upon arrival I felt as though I was staying in a private home. Our hosts were very receptive and made us feel so welcome. The room on the top floor was very nice and the availability of being on the bus route to downtown made the trip into the city inexpensive and very convenient. Only 4 parking spaces can be... More
