“Two Thumbs Up!”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Stayed for one night while attending a function in Barna. Would love to have stayed longer - beautiful location, ensuite rooms with amazing panoramic views of Galway bay. (Nothing like waking up to a view like that!). Very friendly host (Joan), and great food too. Reservation was easy and hassle-free, and great value too. Highly recommended.

The location of Freeport House on Galway Bay was lovely. The views were fantastic. The room was cozy - even in the cold of November. Joan was a lovely hostess who also gave us tips about where to eat (we chose the local pub) and what to see in the area. This was the first of five B&B's we stayed at in Ireland. Joan's Irish breakfast was the best of them all. I would definitely recommend to friends, family - anyone!

Room Tip: Choose a room overlooking the bay for an awesome view.

My friend and I stayed at the Freeport House out of circumstances not in our control -- we had actually booked at the neighboring Abbeyville Bed and Breakfast, but the manager there fell ill with a root canal, so she directed us across the street. Joan, the manager of Freeport, was very friendly, warm and inviting. We arrived late and she directed us where to find food at such a late hour and let us stay up in the living room, eating and watching TV. She made us a hearty Irish breakfast and gave us great advice as to how to get into Galway scenically and cheaply. The room was small, but comfortable and the shower was great. Would definitely recommend this place. Barna is also a charming village.

We were there in May, and were the only ones in Freeport House. Joan was lovely, and let us see all the rooms & pick which one we wanted !! We chose one with a beautiful view, but it was incredibly small, no room for the cases next to the bed really. Still, we chose it, and we could see all over Galway Bay, it was lovely. A short walk to the pub for a great meal.

Room Tip: Joan may let you choose !! Small is fine, it's worth it for the view !!
