We stayed here for two nights in April 2012 while touring Ireland. The property is a little way out of Galway but its location on Galway Bay makes up for it. Our room had a lovely ambience - stylishly decorated with a water view and bathroom was well appointed with plenty of hot water. Our hosts were friendly and hospitable... More

Stayed in May 2012 for a weekend away with 3 friends and we absolutely adored the place, very stylish and modern and our room was so spacious and clean with gorgeous decor. The owners were so friendly and were more than happy to help out with everything we needed. Breakfast had a large selection of fresh good quality food! Defiantly... More

Clean and pleasnt rooms, but the b&b is generally lacking character. Disapointing breakfast, which costs extra - what is the second ,'b' for in b&b?! It's fine, but you wouldn't want to book more than a night or two.

Nice place but we had to walk up 3 flights of stairs and pay extra for breakfast. Parking was good. The staff was nice - we were given a very good recommendation for dinner which we would never have found on our own (Tom Sheridan's Bar). It was within walking distance. The breakfast was pretty good. We were also given... More

It was pouring with rain and dark when we turned up. The hosts were very accommodating and friendly, and the rooms pleasant and clean. Great location and excellent value for money, however the walls were quite thin and could hear what was happening in the next rooms. Breakfast was great - although a little slow, and felt sorry for the... More

We stayed at the Amber Bay on th 16th Feb'12 for four days. Excellent hosts, very warm welcome, nothing was too much trouble.. Rooms very clean and comfortable and a superb breakfast. This was our 1st trip to Galway to visit our daughter and we will definitely make this our base for further visits.
