No frills bed and breakfast. Lovely hosts. Breakfast was solid and certainly enough for me. Rooms were clean and value for money. Location is a bonus. Close to salthill or Galway town. Parking can be tricky tho as there isn't much space to swing a cat in the car park.

The breakfast they provide is VERY delicious and filling. The rooms are very spacious and clean and the beds were made everyday. Overall, I'd highly recommend staying... More

I came up to Galway to support my brother who competed in a triathlon. Patricia and Jimmy treated me like one of the family and gave me great tips for finding good local eats, music, sights, and markets. The room was clean, the shower hot, and the bed comfy. Being a girl, the hairdryer came in handy. Being alone, it... More

Myself and my wife had the most enjoyable, pleasant and cosy stay in the Swallow. The bed was so comfortable and the ensuite spacious. Simple details such as a socket next to the bed to keep your phone charged or a private area out the back for smokers to sit down in comfort whilst enjoying a cigarette are great. But... More

I just stayed there with 11 family members and we were able to occupy the full 2nd floor of the B & B. The en suite bathrooms were great with such a large group and our hosts were so kind and helpful. This is my second stay at the Swallow B & B, and I would certainly make this my... More

Very well located, just 10 minutes to the city centre. Car parking space in front of the B&B. Lovely couple who owns the place! Old but clean and cosy rooms and hot water in the shower! Good breakfast buffet! We would stay there again...
