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 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

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
