Nice comfortable room, no one there to greet us, just an intercom which was a bit disappointing as we like to chat with the hosts and get tips on where best to eat etc. Breakfast was nice but served on a tiny plate! As Galway has lots of places to stay it's unlikely we would stay here again

Stayed in Room 1 on Friday & Saturday. Lovely hotel. Very clean, very comfortable and a great 10 minute walk into Galway city centre. Maria (the lady who runs the B&B) is the perfect hostess and will go that extra mile to help. The breakfast was great and worth the money. If I come back to Galway, I will definitely... More

Competent, friendly and helpful personell. Clean room. Located in 5min walking distance to city centre. The cot we got for our toddler was ok. We only disliked that it was quiet warm in the room due to a missing air condition (but I guess thats regular in Ireland) and that we got a room headed to the street what made... More

Very friendly and helpful staff,as we were checking in long after the hours,they rang me to make sure everything is OK and assured they are waiting for us. The b&b is located near to town,perfect spot.It was a short stay,but definitely will gp back,as they have reasonable prices.

we stayed for one night in one of courtyard rooms, basically tiny chalets built onto the back of the main house to boost their profits, pack them in style. Access to the rooms is via a narrow alley. The room itself was a small box with no warmth in character. The bathroom was barely useable due to its size. Breakfast... More

This is not a B&B: first of all, the breakfast, which is mostly made up of stale cereals and bad coffee, is €6 extra per day. It's actually run by a chain as a hostel, so there is no family living in the house, only a group of men who couldn't care less if you had a pleasant stay or... More

The breakfast room and the continental breakfast were nice. Staff friendly. No idea what the rooms in the main building were like, but we got a room off the back courtyard and it is definitely not to be recommended. Only slightly larger than the double bed, flaking paint on the walls, internet signal coming and going ( in the evening... More

Unfriendly welcome. Despite the pictures on the website making this look like a decent size B&B, we stayed in the "courtyard" which had 3 tiny rooms that you could just about fit 2 people and their luggage. Room was filthy, there was dust lying everywhere, door mat was filthy, the back of the door was covered in black marks and... More
