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... More

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

Stayed at Consilio for one night during trip to Ireland. Stella is a wonderful host - friendly and extremely helpful. She was genuinely interested in us and took time to talk and get to know us. The B&B is close to the water front and within walking distance of Galway city centre. Would highly recommend this B&B.

Stella was so hospitable, very interesting, and so funny. Her husband Liam was very helpful and also very friendly. Our rooms were very clean and comfortable. My husband, daughter, and I had planned to be in the same room but since they were not full, they let our daughter stay in a single bedroom which was much more comfortable for... More

The Innkeepers, Stella and Liam were VERY hospitable, friendly, warm and caring! Although we only stayed one night, our rooms were ready when we arrived in the evening with the heat on high :) We took a walk, just 10 minutes to downtown Galway where there are many pubs/restaurants! Stella and Liam were a wealth of knowledge, did I mention... More

Stayed here on St. Patrick's weekend. Hostess and her husband were extremely helpful and chatty. Really enjoyed my stay and would recommend again. Great location and value for money. Twin room and bathroom were quite small, but clean and tidy. Suited me and my partner fine. Nothing majorly bad to say about the place!

This B&B is in a good location for the city centre, only about 10-15mins walk, and the right side of town for Connemara with free parking off-road. Stella is chatty and friendly and there is a good spread for breakfast. The way we booked, there were only twin rooms available but we requested a double anyway, and Stella was able... More
