Stayed here with a friend for one night here over Easter - although the facilities are a little dated and the decor will not be to everyone's taste, the welcome and friendliness of the owners more than makes up for it! Perfect location next to Salt Hill (although it was rather wet and wild when we were there) and within... More

The outside looks fine but when you see the rooms, it is like going back in time to a college dorm. Complete with an antique 14" TV, dim lighting, carpet-less floors and a list of rules on the door, we could not be more disappointed. Yes it is within walking distance of downtown (hence the 2 stars) but after a... More

It is at a very good location and easy walk to both downtown and the beach. It was spotless and Theresa was very helpful with trips and advice for restaurants and shops. She is a broker for the Aran Island (Inishmore) trip and was able to arrange our trip and pick up by the bus just outside the B &... More

This B&B wa more like a cheap motel than the typical warm, charming B&Bs that we had encountered elsewhere in Ireland. The rooms were clean, but small and spartan. The breakfast was generous in neither variety nor quantity. The one thing that this property has in its favor is location...right at the end of the Promenade.

This B&B has a good location with an easy walk to the shore and to city center. After a long day of driving in Ireland, walking to a restaurant felt so good.There was plenty of easily accessible parking. Our room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was adequate but perfunctory: There was a full Irish breakfast but the bacon was strangely... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights during the Galway International Arts Festival and found it to be very clean and well maintained. The owner was very helpful and gave us a few quick directions when we arrived to help us get our bearings. Its in a lovely location right next to Salthill and a stone's throw from the... More

We stayed a few nights in this very tidy and clean B&B. The hosts were very friendly and the breakfast was excellent. The onsite parking was very convenient, and because the house is located between Galway city and the beach/promenade of Salthill ,with its cafe's, restaurants, bars etc, we left the car parked at the house and walked into Galway...

This location was a little bit more professional than most B&B's - they had many rooms as opposed to the usual 2-3 in a home. However, that is not a complaint. The location was excellent, right on the bay behind a casino and walking distance into town (a little bit of a walk - but not bad). The breakfast offered... More

I stayed here the last night of our trip. The owner was very accommodating and the B&B was clean. We were able to walk into the city area without trouble. The breakfast was great. The hostess was so sweet and nice that we felt very welcome.
