“Flawless place to stay in Galway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

The quality and hospitality at the Petra House blew us away. Frank was the perfect host and the room and entire property is spotless and nicely appointed. Breakfast was plentiful and well cooked. The location is a nice but short walk from the center of town and quiet at night for a restful night's sleep. Every detail in the B&B was perfect down to the flowers out front and in the garden. This B&B deserves all the rave reviews and we hope you enjoy staying here as much as we did!

Fantastic location short walk into town. Nothing too much trouble for Frank and Joan. Great breakfast will set you up for the day . Would definitely stay here again. Rooms are on the small side but are very clean and have everything you could want

We had an amazing stay at the Petra house! Very quick walk to all of the restaurants and bars, and perfect room. The breakfast was also fresh and amazing!! Frank and Joan gave great recommendations not only Galway but the cliffs of mohr and things along the way. We have stayed in many b&bs and this one was the best!!!!!

My daughter and I stayed at Petra House this week. It is a remarkable place. The location is perfect. A ten minute walk to city center and the bus station. The home is immaculate. Everything is perfect. The rooms are really quiet and so modern and spotless. The Irish breakfast in the mornings is specular. You cannot do better at any price. The price is a bargain. Book well ahead. It was the only B&B with "No Vacancy" sign up at all times.

I can't say enough about the service here. Frank was so nice and welcoming. He provided us with a map of the town and was able to suggest a great restaurant and later some pubs for us to visit. The room and bathroom were spotless and the bed was very comfortable. Little touches like the ironing board and bottled water/snacks in the room were so nice. I regret to say that after a late night of "pub action" we missed breakfast-which is said to be amazing. Upon checking out, Frank gave us a bag of goodies "to-go"-fruit, cheese, scones, water, etc so that we didn't have to stop for something on the way out. I wished we had allocated more time in Galway because we really enjoyed our stay here.

We stayed one night in this good house and we are very satisfied of the choice we made. The room in the penthouse was very big, spottlessly clean and very confortable. The breakfast was wonderful. The house is next to the stadium, a short walk far from the city center, Highly recommended!

The meet from Frank was genuine and welcoming. The house and rooms are very clean, though the rooms are not overlarge they are adequate. Location is a nice walk, around 15mins into town with pubs on the way. The breakfast is extraordinary, probably the best we have encountered. Little things like the toiletries, nice towels, bottled water, and ironing board in room all combined to make it a great place to stay. While the B&B itself is hard to fault, we found the outstanding feature the nature and generosity of the host. Nothing is too much trouble and he is a delight to talk to. If there was 6 stars for service this would be it! Would recommend without hesitation.
