A trendy little b&b in a great location just across the bridge from city centre. A delightful gourmet breakfast. But no TV in rooms. No tea making facilities in rooms but was available in downstairs lounge. Worst feature the parking. Difficult to locate the back lane access and the close lane too narrow to enter safely. More directions on web... More

This is bar none the best B & B we have ever stayed in. The location is perfect, just far away from the noise of downtown, but only a 5 minute a walk from all the action. The rooms are pleasant and comfortable. But more than anything, the second B, the breakfast, is amazing. They are all fantastic cooks with... More

I was very fortunate to have stayed at The Stop on my recent visit to Galway City. I was passing through on my way to hiking on Inis Mor of the Aran Islands and the Western Way through Connemara. I was offered the warmest welcome. The house is very comfortable ideally located. Russell and Emer are both very interested in... More

Stayed here for two nights while visiting nearby Aran Islands and day tripping up into Connemara. The location is a short easy walk into the historic city centre. The one downside of the location is that it faces out on to a busy, non-picturesque street, so this wouldn't be the place to choose if you want to wake up to... More

My boyfriend and I spent one night at The Stop in Galway. Its location is great just a short walk from the city center and we loved every second of our stay. The b&b is really beautifully decorated and reflects the creative taste of the owners. The thing that made it extra special was how friendly and welcoming Russell was,... More

We arrived way later than we planned from the Antrim Coast yet greeted with smiles when we walked through the door. We were offered tea and shown to our room. The lovely lady that helped us even loaned me her phone to call and set up a B&B for the next night down near Doolin. The rooms are very clean,... More

We stayed in Galway on a Friday night and wanted a B and B where we could easily walk to the downtown - this was it! What we also got was a really friendly and welcoming host and a clean neat compact room in a house that I just loved the decor (think funky/arty). We had a great choice of... More

Has everything you need with an incredible breakfast and one of the best features is the beautiful artwork around the place. I stayed here for a conference and would have thought it was a bit out of the way from the city centre, but it's not at all as Galway is very walkable. The owner is really friendly and again,...

I stayed at The Stop with my Girlfriend and my Grandfather. Galway was at the end of our trip and The Stop was the perfect place to stay. We got a great taste of traditional B&B's, and The Stop was the perfect change of pace, with it's modern style and ambience. The modern feel fit well with Galway's youthful culture.... More

A kind of place you want to keep secret... we spent 2 nights in a 3-bed-family room... Cosy, fresh and nicely decorated, so was the whole arty house. We felt really comfortable and at home... Irish breakfast was delicious with fresh products and homemade bread. A friendly welcome and good advices for dinner in town, places to see in and... More
