A quiet B&B right in the centre of things. It is just a 5 minutes walk to get to the great pubs in the Westend and it's also close to the sea and Sallthill. The rooms are clean and cosy and the breakfast superb; you don't often get such perfectly poached eggs. The hosts are genuinely warm and friendly and... More

Patricia and Jimmy were excellent, such warm and welcoming host. B&B is in a very quiet neighborhood, but is also walking distance from the city. Room was very clean and breakfast was great. Highly recommend!

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 B&B was very welcoming. The couple that own it are very warm and helpful. The B&B is just a few minutes away from the center of town, food markets and the ocean. 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

We were made very welcome by Patricia who told us there was a room available for one night only, the following morning she told us we could stay another night as she had done some rearranging. We were delighted, its a lovely place to stay, light airy room... 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
