Location was everything here, and this B&B puts you right there, yet far away enough to not be an issue. Traffic (at times) could make it difficult to turn left out of the parking lot, and parking, well. Challenge accepted the second day. The first day, I just handed Mike the rental car keys and he parked it. It is... More

Mike and Breda are wonder hosts at their B&B. My husband, three kids (12,10,8) and mother stayed there for two nights. We stayed in two rooms. Both were very clean. The breakfast was wonderful and the hosts make you feel right at home. They are very helpful with local recommendations also.

The Ardawn House is cozy, clean, and perfectly located! The breakfast was great. Breda and Mike are wonderful hosts. Our group (6 adults and 2 kids) had 3 rooms on the top floor. I would definitely stay there again!!

My Mom, Sister and I stayed here two nights, and couldn't ask for anything better. Clean, safe room. Short walk to all of the action. What I really like about this B&B compared to others I have stayed in, is they don't have paper-thin walls, you can't hear everything going on around the house. Mike was very friendly and helpful....

Great hosts, nicely decorated, great breakfast- made to order for addition 9 euro, clean room, and great location. Had a family room #7 up 3 flights of stairs. A little tight for 4, but comfortable overall. My only complaint would be lack of water pressure. Plenty of hot water though! Parking is very limited and extremely tight. I would stay... More

Ardawn House is on College Street in Galway. Easy to walk to the Pedestrian Mall and other sites in the center of the city. Galway was my favorite city in Ireland and we were so lucky to arrange 2 days here w/o a reservation (wouldn't try that in summer, however). The breakfasts are delicious and beautifully presented. The hosts made... More

Nicest b and b I've ever stayed in. Everything is superbly done. Owners are very friendly and talkative. Wifi is strong throughout the house. The only downside is it's a bit more expensive, but it's easily worth it.

This was our first visit to Ireland and we could not have had a better, warmer, friendlier, more knowledgeable introduction to the amazing heritage, culture and hospitality of both Galway and Ireland itself.
