We stayed with friends as we were at the Galway Races. This accommodation is top rate. The rooms are spacious with lovely ensuites. Mairead & Tom were excellent hosts who couldn't do enough for us. Will definitely return again soon.

We stayed here to attend a wedding in Slieve Aughty - Mairead generously offered to drive us all to the site, which was a considerable distance away and which was greatly appreciated as we'd travelled from Cork and were unfamiliar with the area. The house itself is beautiful, with gracious, comfortable bedrooms, and a lovely sunny breakfast room. The breakfast... More

We spent 2 weeks in Ireland with varying accommodations. The Craig Country House was head and shoulders above the rest. Our host made us feel very welcome and treated us as family. It felt like I was home staying here. I would very highly recommend this as a stop on any visit to Ireland and will definitely stay there on... More

If you want a B & B where you are immediately part of the family, this is it! Within minutes of our arrival, we were sitting around the kitchen table chatting as if we had known one another for years. Mairead and Tom are warm, welcoming and funny! This is the best bed and breakfast I have ever visited.

We spent 14 glorious days visiting Ireland with a group of friends...and stayed in some fabulous B&Bs as well as some of the finest hotels...but our hands-down favorite was Craig's Country House! From the moment we arrived, we were welcomed, first by the greeting committee of Maggie, Sally and Basel...the resident pups. Mairead and Tom embraced us as family...welcoming us... More

Beautiful rooms, spacious and well appointed. Mairead and Tom were the perfect hosts. Most of all, we loved Kitty, the heart and soul of the home. Couldn't ask for more in a B&B - everything was extremely well done from the design of the house to the beautiful grounds.

This is a new (less than 10 years old) purpose built B&B out in the horse country of Co Galway. Mairead and Tom are very warm and welcoming innkeepers. Because it is out in the country it is very quiet and peaceful, which is what we enjoy. Yet it is only a 15 minute drive to the train station to... More

I agree with all the other reviews. Mairead and Tom were the perfect hosts. I thought it was because our traveling companions were personal friends of Mairead and Tom but as I read through the other reviews I see we did not get 'special' treatment we got the normal Mairead and Tom treatment. They are truly warm, wonderful and fun... More

If you want to get a good "taste" of Ireland, stay at Craig Country House! Mairead and Tom are wonderful hosts and they represent the real beauty and nature of the Irish people. Add to that an immaculate B&B with beds that embrace you and a delicious breakfast, and you have the five star B&B Craig Country House. If you... More
