In a little residential neighborhood... Quiet street, but if you walk ten minutes east or west, you're either on a beautiful beach or in the city. The room was bright and clean, breakfast was great, and Bridie was very friendly! She offered suggestions on activities in the city and booked a taxi for us. The only thing that was a... More

Dear Jane F, Thank you for your kind words! Were glad to hear you enjoyed your adventure in Galway. In regards to the closed doors after breakfast, we do like to add a bit of mystery of whats behind door number one or door number two ;) Many thanks for staying with us and we hope to see you again...

We've been there with a group of four, sharing two double bedrooms. We were welcomed very friendly and had a great time there, including a funny breakfast and some very helpful informations (If you read this: we missed the ferry, though ;-). The rooms are small but clean and fair-priced. Thank you guys!

We had a twin room for 4 nights with ensuite (but separate) bathroom on the top floor. Everything with the room & bathroom was fine, super tiny TV. We didn't find Bridie to be very helpful or friendly though, nor particularly knowledgeable of the area, from what we could tell. We had an early morning departure to get a flight... More

Nice and friendly family runs this lovely B&B. I sleeped in a graceful triple attic bedroom, with the wide bathroom and all very clean. Good position, the B&B is a 7 minutes walk from the Galway centre and a 3 minutes walk from Salthill promenade. Good breakfast (Irish or Continental breakfast). Very kind person is Birdie, the owner, she has... More

My family and I stayed at Sli Na Mara for 2 nights. We had 2 rooms both were very clean and comfortable. The location is perfect, within walking distance to town but yet quiet at night. Breakfast was excellent. The hosts George and Birdie were exceptional, very warm, welcoming and helpful. We highly recommend this B&B

Bridie was very welcoming and we had a beautiful stay. The room was clean, a bit small but well furnished, as well as the bathroom (but the shower had a quite low pressure). Breakfast was excellent, continental or egg-sausage-bacon with toast and tea/coffee. It is located in a nice and quiet neighbourhood, just 15 mins walking from the city centre.... More
