My daughter, her children and ourselves recently spent 3 nights at this delightful Country House located on Galway Bay. The accommodation is superb, the rooms beautifully furnished, spotless and so comfortable. The breakfast table is 5 star and service impeccable. The hosts are charming and help to create a lovely family atmosphere. We loved it and really hope to return,... More

Lovely house, great breakfast, pleasant owner. My husband and I enjoyed our stay here very much. Our room was in a separate building from the main house. It was spacious and nicely decorated. We decided to drive to the village in the evenings rather than walk, as the main road is very busy. Ballyvaughan is a cute little sleepy village,... More

This house is beautiful and the owners are welcoming and friendly. Each room is perfectly decorated and with very comfortable furniture. The breakfast is first class. We travelled as a family of five plus a dog and he was welcomed just as much as we were. We enjoyed everything about our stay and we thoroughly enjoyed our evenings playing cards... More

Drumcreehy House was the last B&B on our tour and of course the best. Great located with a breathtaking view over the sea and mountains. The house is perfect decorated and the beautiful rooms have all belongings we need. We felt like home. The buffet breakfast is excellent and the cooked breakfast types also. We will miss it. Absolutly great... More

Pros: Attractive home with lovely views of Galway Bay. Very clean and professionally run. Excellent breakfast with an extensive buffet and a menu choice of hot breakfast entrees. Self-service "honesty bar" with a selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Cons: A lengthy walk on a busy road to the village. Lack of warmth and friendliness normally associated with Irish hospitality... More

I must have driven past Drumcreehy House dozens of times, and kept saying to myself that one day, I would stay there. The opportunity arose in October 2013, when my daughter and I wanted to stay in the area, in order to attend the Burren Winterage festival. Armin and Bernadette were away, but their charming daughter made us feel most... More

This was a third stay for us at Drumcreehy House since April - this time with family from South Africa. Bernadette and Armin looked after us and made both our families feel at home. Great location and a delicious breakfast - easy access to the Burren, Cliffs of Moher etc

When I think of what I look for in a B&B experience, Drumcreehy Country House pretty much defines it. Quiet, comfortable, inviting and personal -- but also professionally run. One thing that this B&B does better than almost any I've been to is breakfast. The buffet spread was amazing. The range of fruit - dried, fresh, and made into preserves... More
