room in quiet but central location in November

hi

I hope to find a typical "Irish style" accommodation (either hotel or B&B)... will be in Galway mid Nov...

emphasis is on quiet (not above noisy pub) and hopefully something charming and traditional.

I am an innkeeper myself.

thanks

birgit

I have no idea what typical "Irish Style" is?

For a B&B fairly central then Forge House. http://www.theforgehouse.com/ might suit your needs.

If you are looking for something more rural effect then you would need to be outside a few miles, say Spiddal and Cloch na Scíth http://www.thatchcottage.com/

If you don't mind being away from the centre of Galway (city) and want sea views, you might look at B&Bs in Salthill. Many on the seafront are bigger and might provide the quiet you need.

A selection here:

www.galway.net/acc/galwaycity/salthill.html

http://towns.galway-ireland.ie/

Please note, Salthill accommodation is often bundled in with Galway city accommodation, as here:

tripadvisor.com/Hotels-g186609-Galway_County…

Click on B&B and Inns option.

Pretty much anything that is in Ireland encompasses someone's 'Irish style'!

If you like the idea of Cloch na Scíth it is on a regular bus route to and from Galway and there is a fair bit to occupy your evenings in the town with a choice of pubs and good food in a couple of spots.

The 424 also serves Rossaveal if you have a good day for heading to the Arans.

Just as I'm typing St Judes has been suggested in Salthill, which has you closer into Galway, walking distance in but cab home late. Not stayed myself but the neighbor says its a great place to stay. Seems to get decent reviews?

If you go for the College Road ones make sure you check the reviews here on them as id a friend staying in one recently and lets just say it was a particularly poor place. Most on College Road are good though.
