Stayed in Dun Aoibhinn House B&B for 1 night while spending weekend in Galway. Very easy access, quiet road and on street parking. Walking distance to Galway City centre and all restaurants and bars, so therefore no need to spend money on taxis. Room was good size, very clean and simple. It does exactly what it says on the tin.... More

Comfortable B&B in excellent location, quiet street but city centre within walking distance and free parking on site. Host very welcoming and helpful. Room had everything it needed for an overnight stay. On the downside, when booking the accomodation the website didn't alert to the fact that the "value deal" was a room only rate. You don't automatically expect that... More

It is rare that I need to write a review on any accommodation provider but I feel inclined to warn other travellers about poor and substandard accommodation. I am surprised this establishment is still in business, I stayed there last summer only one night and forfeiting my 2nd night payment and left the key. The place is not clean, smells... More

My adult Daughter and I were more than happy with our stay. Good to have off Street parking. We were greeted by the Owner who supplied us with all the information that we needed while staying in Galway, without us having to ask! From Pub food, fish & chips, different Restaurants, price ranges across the board. Pub opening and closing... More

While it was probably the most minimalist of our hotels and BB's in our week in Ireland, it was all we needed really and the price was welcome after spending much more for average places. Like I mentioned the rooms are basic - just beds in a room with a flatscreen on the wall and a shower. The breakfast was... More

Hostel level is exactly what we thought of this B&B as mentioned in an earlier review. Carpeting is worn and dirty, dirt on wood floors and baseboards, bedspread looked dingy and old, bed looked lumpy, and power cords were strewn about in view. We decided to forego our deposit and stayed in a hotel nearer to Quay Street for the... More

This isn't a typical guest house. If you think of it more on a hostel level, it's a quiet place to sleep, shower, and get a basic breakfast. As a guest house/B&B, it's lacking in cleanliness, comfort, amenities, good plumbing, and professionalism.

A friendly welcome by the owner and the price reasonable for Galway hotels, an easy walk to the main part of town. But our double room was a cramped corner with a view of the untended back yard and cluttered tool shed. Need some sheep to mow the grass. Room full of bed. Hard for two people to dress at... More

I stayed at this B&B for three nights and it was an enjoyable stay. The host, Jim, is very friendly. The B&B is not far from the city centre and is in the university/hospital area of the city. It is not far from the promenade. My room was clean and I liked the relaxed nature of this B&B. The cook... More
