“Fantastic hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

Recently stayed at this b&b and were so pleased with the hospitality and the high standard of the accomodation. We were staying down as we were visiting a family member in the hospital and the welcome we received from Patricia and Jimmy was real warmth and helped us feel at home and put us all at ease.
Would very much like to stay at this b&b for a nice break and would highly reccomend this as a great place to stay.

This is irish hospitality at its best. I travelled down to Galway for a weekend with my husband .arrived to the B&B and was greeted with such warmth and we felt at home straight away.the room was very comfortable and was en suite. Patricia and jimmy couldn't have done enough for us , telling us all about the history of Galway and recommending tours to go on, In the morning Patricia made us a lovely scrambled eggs amongst a variety of healthily choices. I would definitely stay at this B&B again and highly recommend it.

From the moment we booked in we were made to feel very welcome. Our en suite rooms were spotlessly clean and catered for our every need. Hosts Patricia and Jimmy were extremely friendly, particularly when serving an ample continental breakfast and patiently catering for the diverse requests of our children. A great location within walking distance of all the local amenities and we look forward to returning again later in the year.

Just stayed here with 10 other friends and we found this place was perfect for us. The hosts were accommodating and made us feel very welcome like their own children....remembering our names was a nice touch. The location was great also as u could walk to d nightlife 5 minutes away or take a cab and it was still cheap. Supervalu 3 min walk for small items u may need also. A great place to stay for large parties.

Room Tip: Stay n d main house...front room facing d street is nice.
