What you see is what you get. We stayed one night and compared to the previous B&B's, this place is in need of some improvements. It's a bit dated and in need of new paint, beds, and decorations. We can't rate breakfast because we are not in the habit of eating a large meal for breakfast and we needed to...

We stayed in Galway for one night. The room was nice, clean and comfortable. It was a close walk into town and a nice view of the water. Breakfast was a homemade Irish Breakfast and was fantastic. Our host was nice, polite and helpful. She even let us keep our luggage there until we were done touring the city.

The location of the establishment is ideal for a walk on the promenade which is relaxing and refreshing. It is also approx. 20 minute walk to the City Centre. The premises was full on my visit. The staff were very friendly and professional with tea and biscuits served on arrival. The accommodation was basic put comfortable. The breakfast was very...

I think it was the worst B&B I've ever stayed in . The twin room was absolutely tiny , the beds were on top of each other , no actual curtains just net curtains , and the room just smelled , old musty smell . The ensuite was fair size , but there was no proper light in it just...

We stayed here last year on our Ireland trip and really enjoyed it. The rooms were clean and tidy, we even got upgrated to a room with a jaccuzi. The owner is Australian and very friendly gave us some great tips. Breakfast nothing special but hey it was free. Galway is an easy walk within the B&B and we had...

The room and location of this Guesthouse were good, however we found that the service was quite disappointing. The managers were not on-site and breakfast was served late because some of the staff were late turning up - this made it difficult as we had other destinations we had to hurry to. The check-in staff were not very helpful and...

I recently stayed at this accommodation with my husband and parents as I had to attend a medical appointment and so we decided to make a weekend out of it. The description of my parents room was a triple but when we arrived there was one double bed and 2 single beds which were in a separate section of the...

We made reservations 3 months in advance at the Ocean Crest. After driving 6.5 hours on curvy roads from Dingle, we were tired and ready to finally relax. When we arrived late in the afternoon we were told by the manager that they had overbooked and they didnt have a room for us! Thats it...your out of luck. Seriously....Who does...
