My family and I spent a few days at Cashelmara Lodge and it was a truly pleasant experience! Christina greeted us with such warmth and showed to an impeccably beautiful and clean room with comfortable beds. Each morning we had a fantastic breakfast with great selection of coffee, tea and juice. She gave us great information on things to do... More

My wife and I arrived in Salthill for a long weekend. We were greeted warmly by the owner of the lodge - Christina. She was incredibly helpful. Advising us on places to visit in Galway and the best ways to get there. The room was very clean and the beds surprisingly comfortable. We woke each morning to a great breakfast... More

As the title says staying here was an absolutely wonderful experience. This is a family run bed and breakfast and I must say the family really made our stay enjoyable. They even drove into town when we were going for dinner on our second night! Our room was a large double room overlooking the bay and it was absolutely spotless.... More

We had an enjoyable stay at Cashelmara Lodge and Christina, Husband Patrick (Padraig?) and family we encountered were most engaging and attentive. The location in Salthill was ideal being close to the promenade but far away from traffic and our room was prepared and cleaned to a very high standard. Internet access was fast and easy to access but for... More

When we arrived the owner didn't think anyone had booked as she was cleaning up the house as she had been busy on the previous days with the local elections. We we eventually shown to our room and told to go to the golf club if we wanted dinner. We then asked about wifi and she tried to help but... More

Christina provided the best breakfast we had on our trip to Ireland, with a beautifully cooked Irish breakfast on cracking hot plates. The perc coffee was great as well. But there were disappointments. When we arrived, I had to knock on the locked door until Christina arrived. When I said we had a booking she replied, "no you haven't". On... More

Hostess Christina was a delight. We were there during a slow period, so she spent a lot of time chatting with us about her life, making suggestions on things to do, and seeing to it that we enjoyed our time in the Galway area. Internet service was a bit iffy (not good in the room, but fine in the parlor),... More

Stayed here for 2 nights. I felt like home, the room was perfect, the breakfast was delicious and the hosts were too good to us. It was a perfect long weekend off. We will be back as soon as we can take a few days off!

Very cosy , feels like home. The owners are excellent. They really want to make sure that you make the best of your visit to Ireland. They gave us excellent suggestions on where to go. Thumbs up to that! Parking is convenient, right in front of the house. Breakfast is wholesome. Payment is by cash.

We arrived unannounced, off the street to see if there were any vacancies. Luckily for us, Christina made us very welcome and we soon felt like we had settled into a home away from home. We only wanted one night but quickly decided to stay for two. Great breakfasts, happy to meet requests and very knowledgeable about the local area.... More
