Bad vibes from the woman immediately.I had ordered a double room and was given a twin room and told to "figure it out".The first photo on this page is a photo of a breakfast.Don't be fooled there is no breakfast.We were asked to pay cash up front before we were told that there was no breakfast or before I could...

Lovely clean and comfy rooms in a nice quiet location. Only a few hundred yards from eyre square. Beautiful view overlooking the bay. Room was clean and both of us had long showers and had no problem with water. Tea and coffee, shampoo and shower gel all provided in room. only downside is theres no breakfast. Room only

Nice Clean Guest house but quite expensive for room only .Dont know why its advertised as a b&b it doesn't do breakfast.Generally in most b&bs you make your payment on your departure but we had to pay (Cash )on Arrival .I'm not saying dont stay there, but we certainly wont be back.

How the lighthouse can be called a bed and breakfast is beyond me as they don't do breakfast. On arriving my daughter was sick after travelling for 4hrs in a car only to find we couldn't shower because there was no hot water. The lady wanted cash only as they don't accept card even though it says on the website... More

This b&b is a great value for money option, in a great location. Breakfast is not supplied but there are plenty of good cafes within walking distance. Staff are lovely. Rooms are clean and comfortable. You get what you pay for. I will stay here again if visiting galway

Stayed here for one night as part of a weekend away. It's in a good location, 10 minutes walk max to Eyre Square, has private parking, and nice, if unspectacular, rooms. There is no breakfast on offer, which is a bit odd for a Bed and Breakfast, but no real complaints otherwise. Would stay here again due to the location.

We stayed overnight at this B&B in a double room. When we booked this room online, the ad included a 'continental breakfast'. However, upon check in, we were informed by the B&B owners that our stay did not include breakfast - this was not an issue for us though because Galway has a lot of lovely cafes we could have...

I'm writing to add my misery story to the scores of other misery stories on this website about the Lighthouse B&B. I booked a room for a Saturday stay on Booking.com which was confirmed by email. I was informed late on the Thursday evening before our trip that the room was not available. When I asked how could this be... More

The lighthouse b&b is situated 10 minutes from Galway city centre, I found it to be warm, clean and really cosy. I was staying for one night on my own while visiting Galway for a friends birthday. The owner was polite and the room was big and had tea and coffee making facilities, a hairdryer and clean sheets, towels and... More

Apart from the location thats right opposite a lake and few minutes walk to the city centre this place is not worth staying! The reasons why one should not go: 1. Frozen food, very basic and repeated breakfast for our three days of stay here. 2. Rooms are too small and washroom is more like a cabinet. 3. Rooms aren't... More
