Stella and Liam are lovely people, welcoming guests to their place with warmth and kindness. What a treat! Guests are introduced to one another and interesting conversations ensue. The rooms are lovely with fresh white sheets and duvet covers. Everything is spotless. All the amenities are provided: dryers, kettle and tea-making items, bathroom toiletries and warmly heated rooms. The breakfast... 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.

The B&B itself is very basic (tiny rooms and bathrooms, but very clean). However, Stella went out of her way to make our stay more enjoyable. She cooked us a delicious breakfast and gave us great recommendations to make the most of our time in Galway. She even offered to mail our previous B&B owner our voucher when we forgot... More

Where do I begin!!! Stella, a lovely woman with amazing customer care!!!! My friend and I stayed here for one night before heading off to beautiful Roundstone, Connemara. We arrived at 8.30pm and Stella advised us where to go as we wanted some Irish music. She rang, to ensure live music was on and printed the details of the pub... More

Stella is by far our favorite B&B host we had on our trip to Ireland. My family and I enjoyed talking to her every morning and night when we would run into her after coming back from town. If you need anything she can help :) my family and I were tired so we asked for bowls and spoons to... More

Stella is such a jewel of a lady and I loved her style very much. She greeted us when we arrived later than planned and showed us to our rooms politely and promptly then gave us a quick recommendation where to go for our dinner. She was not a gabber and did not hold us up but just sweetly bid... More

Stella - the hostess - provided us a marvelous breakfast each morning, the highlight of which was chatting with her and the other guests. There were three of us (women) and our luggage, so the room was a bit full, but plenty comfortable. We stayed 3 nights, and walked conveniently from the B&B to the town centre for dinner and...

We stayed as two couples at the Consilio for two nights midway through an Ireland holiday. Stella is what makes this B&B a good place to stay--she is super friendly, hospitable and helpful, and great fun to talk with, too. But we were disappointed with the cramped little rooms, which were overcrowded with dated furnishings and tired carpets. The bathrooms... More
