“great location for exploring Connemara area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2011

Vera was very nice upon arrival, showed us our rooms which were very clean. The beds were comfortable and the shower area newer but sink is a little dated. She had wash cloths and soap amenities. It was our first night in Ireland so we asked for a recommendation of where to eat in town (approx. 5 min. drive). In the morning Vera gave us directions on our map as to the route to make use of our day there. It was excellent advice. Breakfast was good and we enjoyed the delicious apple tart the one morning. Her daughter helped to serve the food and coffee came out promptly. Great garden surrounding the property. Only problems were the one night the people arriving on the floor above us were extremely noisy and woke us up but can't fault Vera for rudeness in guests. If exploring Connemara area this is a great place to stay. Beware if trying to find on gps it gives you the wrong place.

What an incredible place! Perfectly clean rooms, amazing views, and incredible breakfast are all great but Vera and Bartley are what makes this place worth a visit. Very friendly and always striving to make all of their guests happy. This is the most courteous place my wife and I have ever stayed and will be back to stay again. You will not be disappointed in Ardmor country house! By the way they also serve the best breakfast in Ireland!

My wife, granddaughter and I stayed at the Ardmor Country House for 2 days earlier this month. My wife and I had stayed with Vera & Bartley a couple of years ago and any time I'm anywhere around the Galway area, I will always stay at the Ardmor Country House. The hosts are wonderful people and do anything to make their guests stay pleasant and memorable. You will not find any hosts or accommodations any better than what you find at the Ardmor Country House.

Beautiful House and gardens with great view of the sea from back of the house, huge varanda with plenty of seating areas and swings for the kids. Unforunately, it was raining most of the time. The bedroom was very comfortable, with everything you need. The shower wasnt very powerful. The was a communial lounge area, really spacious, a library with loads of books on Ireland. Breakfast was fantasic, we had our three year old with us and Vera couldnt have been any more obliging. The location was brilliant. Walking distance from the town of spiddal. Short drive to Salthill and Galway city and not far from the ferry to the Aran Islands. We will definately be staying again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the house

Our four day stay enable to us visit Aran Islands and explore the Galway area. The B&B cannot be praised renough. From a great welcome, a very comfortable room, fabulous breakfasts, and a most charming host. We would return again and again.

Nicely situated (quiet) outside of Spiddal but a very close walk - very affordable. We were put in a room with a very nice view of the property and surrounding properties. There is nothing very unique or outstanding about the room but it was clean and comfortable. Vera recommended a lovely walk along the seashore arriving at the harbor behind the town - we really enjoyed that. We had a wonderful meal in town and walked back - very easy walk. Outstanding breakfast - the baked goods were probably the best we tasted in Ireland. The only negative is that I did find the owners to be somewhat unfriendly. We stayed at 7 B&Bs on our Ireland trip and so many of the others there was just a very gracious welcoming feeling that I had which made me often not want to leave. I didn't have that experience at Ardmor so i guess my review is a bit mixed.

This B & B is wonderful. We enjoyed the visits with Vera and Barkley. The food was delicious, the home was comfortable and we felt welcome. We have been there twice. The first time was with another couple and the second time alone. Vera always has steered us to the best place to buy souvenirs and where to eat. She even looked up the only bus tour we've ever been on. Our room was homey and dated, but is that wrong? No way. It was clean and had everything we needed at hand. We slept well each night. Our rooms always had a great view of the bay. Nice after a day of walking and a great harbor during rain. Such a short drive to Galway and north to grab the boat to Inishmore - in the Aran Islands. Best memory ever! If you are a gracious guest, you are treated inkind - we hope to return some day soon. We heartily recommended this B&B!!

Room Tip: Watch for their road side sign -
