Stayed here for one night last week. I found it by driving by and the neighbors actually called the owner, Joan, who was out running an errand. They let me in and got me situated. Clean comfortable room, very quiet, good breakfast options and a pleasant friendly host. A short, safe walk to downtown and only a block off the... More

We stayed with the lovely Joan during our family trip. We had two rooms, one with two adults, the other with two adults, a 4 year old and an 8 month old in a cot. The rooms were very cozy, a bit squishy with the cot in but it didn't bother us. Each room had its own bathroom. Comfy beds.... More

From the initial greeting to our departure 3 days later we couldn't have been more welcome. Joan was the perfect host, offering very clean comfortable rooms and a delicious Irish breakfast. We will be back!

My family and I enjoyed the Periwinkle B&B and found Joan to be a warm and gracious host. The triple room was the smallest that we would have in our 2-week trip in Ireland, and we had to wait until morning until hot water was again available for showers, but these were minor inconveniences compared to the proximity to Galway...

My sister and I spent a few days in Galway and luckily, we decided on the Periwinkle! Joan was lovely and the rooms are nicely done up! She's always interested in your plans and has great ideas what to do, also concerning trips to Connemara, Cliffs of Moher etc.! The breakfast is absolutely delicious! You can decide between several kinds... More

The Periwinkle B&B is cute, clean, and so comfortable, but the best part of this place is the amazing owner, Joan. My sister and I stayed here for 2 nights, and we are both young, so Joan's help with touring suggestions and places to go were priceless information to us. Not only did she give us suggestions, but when we... More

My wife and I decided to go to Ireland for our honeymoon, and we chose to stay in a B&B rather than hotel for a more intimate cultural experience. We chose the Periwinkle on a bit of a whim, based on the fact that the first place we stayed at (vacationing as a couple) was also called the Periwinkle (Cape... More

The title pretty much says it all. Joan was super helpful--- I had not planned very well for a day trip out to Inis Mor and Joan took care of everything, calling a company that provides both the bus ride to the port and ferry ride for a very reasonable price. Because she knew the company so well they even... More

Joan is a very good host. If you need information about trips in Galway, she has many good advises. She can order the tour for you. The Irish breakfast is fabulous, and my wife and I love it. She drove her own car to let us catch the tour coach. Thank her very much. The location is near the coast,... More
