I've stayed in Galway many times and tried to get in here many times but it's always been booked out. There's a very good reason - you need to book in advance as this place is good! - this is a B&B that does what it should - great beds, showers, clean rooms, central (but quiet location), superb breakfast and...

We stayed here last year when we visitd Galway races and had a wonderful stay. When we returned this year we thought of staying nowhere else. This is the only place to stay in Galway. The rooms are lovely, the location is brilliant and the hospitality is unrivalled and the breakfasts the best we have ever had at any hotel/guesthouse.... More

This place is awesome. From the rooms to the breakfast, this place has it all. But the greatest part of this clean, well kept BnB are the hosts. The hospitality we were shown was incredible. The showers are great, the breakfast was delicious, the beds are comfortable, did I mention the breakfast was delicious [and huge]. Frank even went as... More

Spent the first two nights of our two week, seven Bed and Breakfast driving tour of Ireland at Petra House. Before arriving, I wondered why a somewhat ordinary looking B&B should get such glowing reviews, but quickly saw why. It was immaculate, with a pleasant room and comfortable bed that included an in-room iron, water bottles, coffe/tea/pastry and a partial... More

My mother and I stayed with Frank at Petra House from Oct 21-24. What a delight! We made quite the entrance, arriving later than expected because of car troubles and then creating quite a scene in the morning while trying to rush to get our car repaired and still make our ferry to the Aran Islands. Frank could not have... More

Petra House is ideal for those with a car who want to park it an explore galway, but since we did not have one, the trek from the bus station was slightly offputting. However, once we arrived in our room we were glad to have a place with an iron and comfortable beds. The breakfast was lovely and the service... More

What a great B&B, Frank and Joan were amazing. Petra was just beautiful, and the rooms were large with very comfortable beds and everything was very clean. Petra is ideally located and just a short walk to all there is to see in Galway, and they had off-street parking which was nice. We had a great time, and Frank and... More
