I was impress with this little B&B on a recent trip to Galway. It is clean, warm and has friendly staff. The rooms were quitr modern and had nice little touches like chocolates on the pilliows. More than you can expect from somewhere so reasonably priced. The only thing is it is a bit out from the city. It costs... More

We stayed at the Amber Hill Bed and Breakfast while on a 10 day tour of Ireland. We will always remember this place--we felt welcomed from the time we entered. We had a room on the 2nd floor---it was nicely decorated and the bed was very comfortable. It was a small room, but one where you didn't feel cramped. Nice... More

I booked two nights at the Amber Hill B&B based on good reviews I had read here and on other review sites and was bitterly disappointed. The rooms are neither clean ( if you bother to look beyond the surface) nor well maintained. Broken window locks, broken shower head, cement cracked away in between tiles, mouldy edges in the bathroom,... More

With a modern and elegant decoration and plenty of complimentary services, this Bed and Breakfast is the perfect accommodation for an in-depth exploring of the beautiful west coast of Ireland. The staff is helpful, and the price is reasonable. The breakfast is delicious!

We stayed just one night passing through Galway. A pleasant enough B&B away from the bustle of life. The breakfast room was overcrowded when we ate, but there was a real effort to make breakfast a pleasant start to the day.

We were a family of four touring Ireland. We stayed in the "Chateau" in back because it was larger and had a washing machine. We found our room and Amber Hill in general to be clean and well cared for, and the staff was quite helpful. We had a rental car so the location was very good, not too far... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and were impressed by the thought that had gone into the design of the property. Excellent in all respects. The comfort and décor was great. Free wifi is essential today and was easily accessible in our room. Coffee machines in the sitting rooms were a great touch.

Whatever happened to the good old Irish B&B? When checking in we were greeted by a foreign lady (possibly eastern European) who just lacked the warmth and friendly personality that the Irish are famous for. If you want to experience the Irish hospitality stay somewhere else. The location is in a rough neighbourhood next to what looked like council flats.... More

They provided clean lodging, an excellent breakfast and a personal touch when needed. A very extensive and comfortable common area. We had a rental car so location, being a bit from downtown, was no problem.
