JUNE 2014. We spent 2 days at Ard Aoibhinn B&B. Barbara and Tim were very friendly and received us with a warm welcome including coffee and biscuits. B&B has a stunning view on the ocean. Very good location as starting point visiting Aran Isles and town Galway. Pubs and restaurants shops and Roman Catholic Church along with beaches nearby. Barbara... More

We were travelling as a family and needed two rooms. On first blush, the rooms looked great. The fixtures in the bathrooms were a little dated. The light over the sink in the room I had was intermittent, and you couldn't tell if it was on or off. Of course, it came on in the middle of the night, cause... More

We were here in early June, 2013 while exploring the Connemara and Galway City. Barbara was very friendly and helpful with maps, suggested routes, etc., and even let us check in early, which really helped. The breakfast (and sunny, spacious breakfast area) was lovely, and our two rooms were comfortable. Unfortunately, the weather that day wasn't great, and the next... More

Our family group of ten stayed for a week at this B & B in Spiddal. We had the whole place to ourselves (6 bedrooms). Barbara and Tim Curran made us feel so welcome, and extended themselves in many ways. For example, Barbara made a special trip to Bearna to get a wonderful birthday cake for Jim. They welcomed our...

Bedroom TV didn't work - no channels available. Cold damp uninviting room. Towels weren't the freshest. No bath - only a shower with a shower curtain. Avocado 1970s bathroom suite. Toilet seat not fitted properly. Wonky light in bathroom and above bathroom sink. No shades on bedside lamps which were too bright. Allocated a room facing onto the noisy main... More

We are working throughout the county and this b&b is a great location for planning your way from. Friendly owner and lovely breakfast. She was very helpful when she had no room and got me, the supervisor a place across the road.

We stayed in April and found the location outside the village was great, its ideally placed for the beach, has a lovely garden and plenty of parking. Local places to visit include the Builin Blasta cafe in the craft centre, Loughwell Park on the Moycullen Road and the road into Connemara is very scenic.

About out of Galway, 15 minutes from Aran ferry. We had originally planned to stay one night and extended that to two nights. Barbara's hospitality is beyond gracious. Wonderful breakfast, very comfortable and large rooms and well amenitied. This was one of our all time favorites!
