“So sweet and cutely quant.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012 via mobile

Very friendly staff, affordable, and everything you need in the room. Better than a hostel, yet much more affordable. Location is perfect-- it's close to the main street but far enough away that you can avoid the noise of the city centre.

First up: The Grange B&B is extremely difficult to find. The information that is available online shows the B&B as being in about 4 different places - even the owners give 3 different addresses for it. Let me help clear this up: THE GRANGE B&B IS LOCATED ABOVE LA SALSA RESTAURANT ON THE CORNER OF NEWTOWNSMITH AND MARY ST IN GALWAY CITY CENTRE. Right.

The hotel's not terrible, exactly, just very, very basic, and a little inconvenient. Keys are collected from La Salsa restaurant downstairs, and there's a note up in the room saying the keys must be returned to the restaurant. The restaurant doesn't open until midday, so that's plain annoying.

The rooms are basic, but clean. The shower and toilet are separate, and shared, and therefore a lock would be appreciated on their doors!! It gets a little noisy at night, with several pubs nearby. It was OK for our purposes - a large group just after somewhere to lay our heads for the night, but it would be pretty awful for families or an extended stay.

One last thing - breakfast isn't included, so it's less a B&B and more just a B.

Do not confuse this review with THE GRANGE HOUSE B&B, at which I have never stayed, and cannot comment on. Rather I am writing about a filthy little kip above/behind the La Salsa Restaurant on Mary Street.

The group I was with occupied rooms 1, 2, & 3, all of which had a musty odor, dirty carpet, and moldy bathrooms - especially room #3.

The place was so bad that two of our travelling companions left in the middle of the night to find another place to stay. Really, it was that bad.

Avoid at all costs. You would honestly be better off sleeping in your car.

BTW - We were there the weekend of September 15th, and were charged 25 Euro per person per night for the honor of staying there.

After searching for a reasonable bed and breakfast in the center of Galway, we were delighted with the Grange. The rooms and baths were nice sized and clean. The loction could not be beat, just two minutes walk from Shop Street and five from Eyre Square.
