I stayed at the Swallow last month for two nights whilst visiting friends in Galway. I was greeted by Jimmy and Patricia, who could not have been more welcoming and helpful. I wanted to do some sightseeing whilst on my trip and Jimmy booked me a bus and assisted me with any questions I had. Room was lovely, clean, fresh... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and the place is a great value. It is between Galway downtown and Salthill, both of which are just a short walk away. The hosts are great people and will point you in the right direction for whatever you need. The rooms themselves are a little dated but fresh towels and room turnovers occur... More

This is a great B&B and it's location is wonderful being just a short walk to City Centre. The room was comfortable, the breakfast tasty, the price was reasonable, and Jimmy and Patricia are great hosts! I wholeheartedly recommend this B&B to anyone traveling to Galway!

I came to stay in the Swallow Bed and Breakfast a couple of years ago and with a recent wedding to attend in Galway I didn't hesitate to re-book. It was lovely to Jimmy and Patricia again, they were as welcoming as always and even remembered me from my last trip which added a really personal touch! The swallow is... More

As soon as you arrive at the Swallow B&B you are made to feel like family. Jimmy and Patricia welcome all visitors with open arms. Patricia is always on the go making sure any requests are responded to immediately with Jimmy taking the role of meeter and greeter, this works so well as Jim's knowledge is second to none regards...

we stayed here for the Galway races (Aug 2014) It was definitely the cheapest accommodation I could find. I only booked it for five but seven of us actually showed up (without warning). It was such a busy week i was sure that they couldnt take us but they managed to squeeze us all in. Fantastic hosts will be staying... More

I stayed in the Swallow for two weeks and was very happy with this B n' B. I had a single room, which was small, but comfortable. Everything I needed was there, even a blowdryer and a kettle. You get new fluffy towels every morning, which made me feel, as if I was staying in a hotel. In addition it... More

Stayed here recently with friends and found Patricia and Jimmy very welcoming and helpful. Room was cosy, clean and had everything you could need for a short stay. Breakfast was great and there was plenty of choice. It is situated about halfway between Salthill and Galway town so you can be at the sea in five minutes, and in town... More
