Jimmy and Patricia were both very welcoming and made my stay here very enjoyable. Room was very clean and comfortable and the b&b was the perfect distance from the beach and the city. Five star weekend.

First visited this lovely guesthouse in August 2013 . We were given a chalet room with separate entrance and we found it to be very clean and comfortable . The owners Jimmy and Patricia were very welcoming and could not help us enough with taxis and information on the area . We've been back to stay a second time since... More

The rooms were quite small, and the home was not really what we were looking for. Not really a common area, and the location was not what I was looking for either. He was a great host, very friendly, but the bed and breakfast atmosphere was not right for us.

A friend and I traveled through Ireland in September/October, 2013. We booked B&B's in advance of our trip. As might be expected, we were apprehensive as to what the quality of the accommodations would be. We are fortunate to have booked several nights at the Swallow. The owners, Patricia and Jimmy, are wonderful people. When my traveling companion injured her... More

Had a great experience. The room was clean and tidy. Modern bathroom. Breakfast was tasty and I had variety to chose from. Jimmy & Patricia were very welcoming and helpful, calling us a taxi. I would defiantly stay there again whilst in Galway. On 5 min walk to main street with shopping and pubs.

This is a great place to stay. The owners were very friendly and they made sure we were happy with the room when we arrived, which we were. The room was clean and spacious. Breakfast was good and Patricia made sure we had everything we needed. It is in a good location, just a short walk from the pubs and... More

I visited in July 2013 on a one night flying visit to Galway to meet some friends who were holidaying in the area. The owners were very welcoming when I arrived and even gave me a choice of room. I opted for the one front of house and have to say was sorely disappointed. Firstly because of the state of... More

Jimmy & Patricia were delightful and very eager to help us. I had an injury and as a diabetic I had to find a doctor ASAP. They made the doctor appt. and called me a taxi. Jimmy walked me to taxi with instructions for the driver. I was treated like one of the family. The breakfast was grand and the... More
