We messed up & found ourselves in Galway with no accommodation on a Friday night. Thanks to 'Dickie' - a taxi driver - we were taken to The Swallow whose owner Jimmy couldn't have been more accommodating. We ended up staying for 3 nights because it felt like coming home every evening....breakfast was good too....although he'll tell you himself that... More

Great place just down the road from the city centre and a quick stroll round the corner to the beautiful seafront. Leisurely breakfast where the owners see to your every wish and keep the tea and toast flowing.

Friendly hosts, great location, fantastic breakfast, and very, very clean. If you are coming to Galway this is the place to stay. All rooms en suite with TV, and an Internet connection with a dependable and strong WiFi signal.

Breakfast was hearty and wonderful, and we always got something to eat in the morning, even if we got up a wee bit late after a... More
