Consillo B&B is very nice and Stella is delightful. My wife and I and 3 adult children (ages 18-23) were very comfortable. It is close to both downtown Galway City and Salthill. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

however the room is quite small (could be better to convert this triple to double) this b&b is one of the best we stayed. breakfast is delicous. the location is ideal for who wants to stay in a walking distance from the center (only 15 minutes), but away from the traffic and parking difficulties. the b&b is also very close...

Thank you for submitting this review. Your suggestion for changing the Double/Single (triple) room to just a double room, by removing the single bed is very good and I intend to do this at the end of this season. Otherwise I am glad that you enjoyed your stay at Consilio B&B. More

Consilio B&B was a great little bed and breakfast my boyfriend and I stayed at for two nights on our recent trip to Galway. Stella is a wonderful host...it was lovely sitting and chatting with her over tea and great food to get us started for the day. They were very accommodating of our later than expected arrival since we... More

Lovely little cottage, clean and tidy welcoming and within walking distance to town. Warning for those who don't like small or are claustrophobic or are on the larger side like myself don't take room 2. I had to squeeze through the shower doors we guess it was some thing like 3'x3'. Beyond that though Stella is a wonderful helpful and... More

Stella and Liam were perfect hosts. They were so nice and so very Irish that they made us feel like we were at home. They served a great breakfast and always left full. Even better it is served in a very nice sun room, which added to the ambiance. Room was decent size and bathroom, while small, was actually larger... More

Though the room was small, our experience more than made up for it! Consilio is about a 10 minute walk from the center of Galway, which was ideal for a girls' night out! Our hosts were lovely, immediately drawing us into conversation upon arrival. Breakfast was delicious, and was served in a beautiful breakfast room to the side of the... More

The bathrooms are so tiny but the personality of the hostess/owner, Stella, more than makes up for that. Stella is so warm and welcoming that you don't want to leave her BnB. You don't even want to go sightseeing. She tells the most amazing stories and makes you feel as though you have known her a lifetime.
