“Christmas in Ireland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

We stayed at this wonderful B&B during out holiday in Ireland. Mary is a fantastic hostess and her breakfasts are very hardy [you'd best be hungry!], so conveniently close to Galway for exploring the city but also close by to the countryside. The accommodations were wonderful: very comfortable beds and luxurious towels and plenty of hot water for relaxing showers! All in all a very pleasant place to end out holiday in Ireland.

We stayed here for two nights between Christmas and New Year. The B&B is in a fantastic location, 5 mins drive from Galway and easy access for exploring Connemara and the Burren. The accommodation is fantastic, lovely, clean and comfortable rooms with en suite bathrooms. Breakfast was delicious and there was plenty of it! The host, Mary, was brilliant, knowledgeable about the area and very friendly. Would highly recommend staying there, and we will definitely be back.

My friend and were in Ireland for Christmas and were not sure if anyone would take us in for Christmas, most places were closed. Not only did Mary have a room for us but she also shared Christmas dinner with us! She was so kind and welcoming, couldn't have asked for a better place to stay in Galway and Ireland!! The rooms were great and accommodations were wonderful!

Semi-rural setting - ensuring a peacefull nights rest. Mary was a delightfull hostess and extremely accomodating. The room was very large and the bed very comfortable - and plenty of hot water - not always the case elsewhere. Overall a very nice stay and a very good value - Thanks Mary!!!

We really enjoyed our stay here and Mary was amazingly accommodating. She took great care of us and made sure we were introduced to the other guests staying there. The location was a little further out than we expected but the peace & quiet of the location was relaxing.

A very nice house in a calm location. My room had an excellent bed for a deep restful sleep. The breakfast was great and Mary is a very nice hostess. Its an optimal point for to visit connemara or cliff of moher. Both attractions you can easily reach with a car. The next stay in Ireland i will spend my days there one more time for sure!
