The breakfast was amazing, including good coffee, and the evening cake was a nice touch. The staff were very friendly and helpful - excellent tips on both restaurants in Galway as well as sights in the beautiful Connemara. It was clean and the art and books are lovely. My only complain was the short beds; at least in our ground... More

We chose The Stop because of the contemporary design of the place and the reported healthy breakfasts. It met our expectations and more. Our flight to Shannon was delayed and we, unexpectedly, arrived very late at night. We kept in touch with Russell along the way and he made sure our arrival at The Stop went smoothly. Our room was...

There are a lot of B&Bs in Galway's west end, but The Stop is one of the closest to town. A short 10 minute walk one way will have you in the Latin quarter, and 10 minutes the other way to Galway Bay. Delicious breakfast and cozy rooms, stay here! :)

Russell and his wife were amazing hosts! We had a wonderful time staying here! The breakfast was absolutely amazing every morning and they were very helpful with not only attractions and things to do within Galway but also how to best get to our next destination. Nothing but great things to say about The Stop!

Everything about "The Stop" was just great. The room was fresh, a reasonable size and very clean. Free parking. Excellent, very friendly hosts who went out of their way to give directions and advice about where to eat and what to see. The B&B is away from the bustle of Galway town, but an easy, level walk into town and... More

Well appointed, but small rooms /bathrooms in a great neighborhood off the tourist corridor. Focus on sustainability and healthy breakfasts, almost all items (even granola) are home made. Owners are attentive, and a pleasure to work with (thank you Russell). Excellent beds and linens, decent wi-fi, but quite a bit of guest noise through the walls. No hesitations to recommend... More

We stayed in the family room - so it was cosy for 4 of us but really had enough room for us. The kids loved the "tumbler" theme with different art all over the walls and my 9 year old ranked the breakfast as best of the trip so far. Russell gave great local advice on where to eat that... More

This was the first stop on our 12-day Ireland trip, and my wife and I couldn't have started off on a better foot when it comes to lodging. Russell and Emer are in the running for the title of nicest and most genuine people in Ireland (which is truly saying something). Breakfasts were fresh and absolutely delicious, and the french-press... More
