We have stayed in this B&B for one night. Upon arrival we received a very warm welcome from Joan the owner of the B&B. She showed us our room and gave us an introduction to Galway with some very helpful tipps! She has some very good stories and is fun listening to. She really adds this special charm to the... More

Great B&B on the edge of Galway - 1 min from the sea, 5 min walk from Salthill and 7min walk to Spanish Arch. Joan the host was very accommodating and friendly. Offered to drive me into town due to the rain, which was a very nice gesture. Rooms smallish but spotlessly clean with super comfy beds and have all... More

The room was; very clean, bed exceptionally comfortable, a very nice bathroom and shower. Breakfast was worthy of a five star hotel with a great selection and served to the highest standard, the smoked salmon scrambled eggs and pancakes reminded me of a cookery book and the host, Joan was very friendly and created a very relaxed atmosphere. As the... More

Nice B&B well located and charming. Nice clean room with a lot of attention to details (wine glasses, bottle opener, facial tissue, etc). Very good breakfast, well presented with good choices of food. Too small for a family or 3 person room. The 2 double beds facing each other take all the space (1 feet between the two beds; hard...

The place was nice, modern, clean, extremely comfortable and the landlady was very nice. But the thing that stood out the most was the breakfast. We were given a small menu to choose from the day before and there were so many good things offered, it was hard to decide. It almost made me want to stay longer, just so... More

We stayed two nights in September and enjoyed it immensely. The host is very helpful and friendly. Rooms vary in size so try and get one of the larger one. Breakfast is also very good and something to look forward to. It takes about 15 minutes to walk to the heart of Galway but it's a pleasant walk along the... More

Periwinkle is a good B&B, 10min walk from the city centre of Galway. Joan is very welcoming and her breakfast was perfect. The rooms were cosy, we had all we needed. The walls are not very thick, so we could hear our neighbours. We got a twin room instead of a double room. We had 2 beds for a couple.... More

We got a warm welcome when we arrived late. The room was small but clean and cozy and had all equipment you would expect at an B&B. The only thing we didn't like was the beds which were to be honerst quite uncomfortable but still ok for a nights stay. The breakfast was the best experience alongside with Joans hospitality....

Friendly B&B within walking distance of town center. Room was rather small but Joan has cleverly used the space well so that we were very comfortable. Excellent breakfast with some interesting choices. The smoked salmon and scrambled eggs is a "must try". Joan was only too glad to help us with tourist info. We had a great stay!
