This b&b is not only great value and extremely comfortable but it is just like staying at a high price hotel. The Owner makes you feel so welcome and is genuinely interested in how you are and how your day went. The b&b itself is spotless, warm, welcoming and comfortable. The location was perfect for my needs. I would highly...

Carmel has been running Roncalli House for years and is a wonderful hostess! We stayed here for the first time 20 years ago and found it again on our most recent trip in November. All rooms are en suite and, although may be smaller than some we encountered, suited our needs. Breakfast was lovely and served in a beautiful dining...

Roncalli House is comfortable and convenient to places in Galway. We parked our car and walked for the time that we were there. Our room was comfortable and quiet. It was within walking distance to the features of Galway that we wanted to visit. Breakfast the next morning was very good.

We feel Roncalli House has small rooms, mediocre food, noisy rooms both from street noise and thin walls, and a less than exciting view of Galway Bay. The shower was very small and the toilet seat was broken. The stairs are very steep and there is no elevator. If you are traveling by train, it is a far walk from...

The Roncalli house is a fine Irish B and B. Located at an excellent and scenic walk onto the pedestrian path thru Galway. The walk along the sea wall ends as you cross a very fast runnig river bridge. The restaurants and pubs lay before you. And do indulge in these epic old and beautiful pubs. We got the full...

I think when it comes to value for money this place was a winner. However, if I was spending more than what I paid I probably would not be so generous with my scoring. We paid €60 for a double room which included breakfast. We were a 10 minute walk from Galway city centre and a 5 minute walk from...

The room was clean and the breakfast was delicious. The bathroom and shower were amazing. As an American it is often hard to adjust to European showers. This one had great wayer pressure and the water actually got hot (seriously, some don't). Bed and breakfasts can be hit or miss but this one is a yes. Its a convenient &...

Of all the B&B's we stayed at in Ireland, this was by far the best. Are there "fancier" B&B's? Sure. But if you want the ultimate B&B experience, Roncalli House is it. Carmel is just the most lovely person you will meet in Ireland. The rooms were very nice, coffee and tea in your room for the morning, the bathroom...

Lovely host. Good breakfast. Parking in front or on street, no problem. Wifi good. The house could use a little maintenance. But as a handyman, I see those kinds of details. Lots of B&B in the area. I would try another place again, but we would stay there again if needed.
