Super cozy place, excellent breakfast and super helpful staff. I recommend and I intend to come back. The city during the christmas market is also charming. 🥰 Great location, close to the bus terminal and the city center.
A brief trip to a very welcoming, small B&B. Great rooms, well appointed with everything we needed. Excellent breakfast - staff very attentive. Paul & Amy super hosts. Short walk into town. Thanks team!
Two words: Paul and Amy. They make this place special. Paul's incredible enthusiasm, desire to make guests' experience comfortable, and interesting chat were special elements. Amy is equally warm and friendly and a great cook. I really enjoyed our stay here and you really can not go wrong at Petra House. It is a short walk into town and a pleasant walk. The breakfast and the breakfast room were great, and the food was fantastic. I would not hesitate in staying here again. Paul and Amy live on the premises and I think it so much enhances the experience, less hotel and more staying with friends. On a wet and rainy Sunday Amy provided us carrot cake fresh from the oven, such a friendly gesture. Paul I have no doubt we will pick the conversation up from where we left off.
My wife and I visited Galway and Paul's B&B in Oct. for our 30th wedding anniversary. He and Amy were such gracious hosts, very well organized at check in and breakfasts, beautiful, clean home and room. We would definitely return. The food each morning was beautifully prepared and served. Amy even brought us a couple wine glasses when we wanted to sit in their back room and enjoy some wine/cheese before going for dinner. Thank you so much for providing a fantastic first experience of Irish hospitality Paul!
This B & B is walking distance to Galway city center. Amy and Paul are wonderful hosts. Amy welcomed us to the beautifully appointed room. The breakfast was delicious, one of the best during my time in Ireland. Paul was the perfect host and we enjoyed our conversation with him. This B & B is a perfect choice while in Galway.
My husband and I recently stayed at Petra House while visiting Galway. Paul and Amy were so welcoming and available for any questions we had. The B&B is in an excellent location. The core area is an easy 10 minute walk away, which is far enough away to not be too loud at night when you’re trying to get some rest. The B&B was very clean and the bed was so comfortable. Paul and Amy go to great lengths to make sure you enjoy your stay, from recommendations for local restaurants to a beautiful breakfast (the homemade soda bread was divine!). Our only regret is not staying an extra night. Thanks Paul and Amy! Jaime and Andrew
Stayed here for 4 nights and would definitely return. We received a very warm welcome and all the staff were very attentive. Amy’s cakes are a real treat. Good to be able to walk c. 15 minutes into the centre for eating. Make sure you have a good appetite as you will find the breakfasts very generous, though they will respond to requests for moderation if you find it’s too much. We certainly didn’t need lunch after them. Thanks again Amy and Paul.
All the good things I can say about this place fall short. The spectacular breakfast, one of the best we have tried in our life. All homemade and a lot of variety. The exquisite treatment, Paul and Amy are great hosts. Special mention to Nicole for her kindness. Perfect location, less than 10 minutes from the center and in a quiet neighborhood.
We arrived early and Paul, our host, allowed us to keep our car in the parking lot and gave us the key to the room, so we could come in anytime. Then he kindly carried our bags to our room on the top floor. The B&B serves a full Irish breakfast, very good, and Paul recommended a few places to eat. Paul and his staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was next to a busy highway, which interfered with sleep.
This is a wonderful place to stay in Galway. Paul & Amy are gracious hosts. Delicious breakfast with Amy's scones and beautiful fruit presentation. Our room was very clean and spacious with all the amenities. You really should visit when in the area. Great location to town, pubs, restaurants, etc. Highly recommend.
