“It's a shame, but it's just too noisy!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

We stayed for a family christening on a weekend when there was a big rugby match at the ground opposite, so perhaps this was an exceptionally noisy weekend, but judging by the other review this B&B's walls are just too thin.
We could hear everything going on in the room next door and the floor above. In the middle of the second night, the fire-alarm went off. The duty manager seemed to have no idea how to re-set it, and it beeped for the rest of the night. He also didn't seem to make sure all the rooms were evacuated...
So not a place for a relaxing weekend. But it is clean, well decorated, reasonably priced & they do a good breakfast. And it's really close for the centre of Galway.

Room Tip: Try and get an upstairs room.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2012

Excellent value for a room so close to city centre and includes a full breakfast. The room I had was spotless and comfortable. My only complaint is the house noise level which exceeded all other B&Bs of this standard I have stayed in. You can hear everything going on in the rooms beside and above you. This was especially bad since I was there on a bank holiday weekend when everyone tends to stay out extra late.

I'll try to find somewhere else to stay next time I visit Galway, but I would return here if I can't find something more suitable.

Room Tip: Rooms on top floor are quieter and have less hallway traffic.
