The host and her sister were like family friends at the warm and welcoming lodge. They offered to hoist our luggage up the the stairs - yes, you whiners, there are stairs - but my macho self prevented me from allowing that, eh? Nice, albeit small 'ensuite' room with tiny tubed TV (good enough for the news), but you're in... More

This was my first time visiting Galway and I am so glad I decided to make Griffin Lodge my home for those few days. Ann was extremely hospitable and helpful. I even decided to stay for one day longer! The breakfast was generous, the bed very comfortable and the room service excellent. All the popular spots were within walking distance.... More

Shower was very strong and warm. It always helped me to be reenergised after a day trip. The Irish breakfast was something you should never... More

We kinda stumbled on this lil gem by chance. We were on a day to day booking trip and needed a place in Galway. The moment we met Ann it just felt right. Humour and spontaneous. And the room was perfect. Clean and spacious. And finally a decent size en suite bathroom with a shower that delivers a decent water... More

I can't say enough about how wonderful Ann was to work with or how great our stay at Griffin Lodge was. It was a beautiful house, we parked right out front, breakfast was delicious, and it is a short, lovely walk to the harbor and pedestrian shopping center.

Excellent location, a short walk to the center of town. Very clean and comfortable. Most striking: Ann couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful, she really went the extra mile in making sure our plans worked out.

This B and B was absolutely amazing. It is in a quiet location, but is still a short walk to the fun parts of Galway. The rooms are minimal, but comfortable and cozy. Wifi was a little dodgy in our room, but it wasn't a huge problem. Ann is a wonderful host, and is friendly, charming, and bends over backwards... More
