Galway B&B - Amber Lodge?

Greetings! We are in the process of booking B&B's for a July visit to Ireland. I have read good reviews of the Petra House on College Street and much less on Amber Lodge, also on College Street. Could anyone provided more information on Amber Lodge so that we can make a comparison? Thank you for your help.

Hi Doodah

I don't really know anything about these ones, but I will say to book early for July as it is the busiest month in Galway

And just to add to your confusion, I just booked what looks like a great B&B right in downtown Galway on the riverfront. Heron's Rest B&B on Long Walk. It is listed in Bridgestone's 100 Best Places to Stay in Ireland. I haven't been yet so can't give first hand info, but the pictures look great, and the hostess Sorcha was a total joy to correspond with.

(whales checked out the location for me, too!)

I tried to book Petra House for dates in September but they were already booked. They are very popular! If you haven't tried to contact them yet, do it now. I ended up booking Amber Lodge for my dates. Can't tell you anything yet about the accommodations but they've been very kind in our correspondence.
