We stayed here after visiting Galway on the way to the Cliffs of Moher. Great spot close to Galway. Much better than a hotel. Rooms werer spacious and the breakfast was great. Marian was a gracious host - I strongly recommend this great B&B.

My husband and I loved staying here and wished we could have stayed a second night. Marian was fantastically friendly and helped us pick a nice place to eat within walking distance of the house and she also called ahead and booked our B&B for the next night for us. We really enjoyed her pancakes (Americans would call them crepes) for breakfast.

We really had a nice stay here in this bb, one of the best of our experience in Ireland. Marian has welcomed us in a really cozy house, our room was clean and well furnished in a lovely yellow. We had a very nice sleep, the district is really quiet.
What was missing was the city, unfortunately the bb is located in the suburbia 4 km out of town. I didn't really like the surroundings, but we did find a really good Indian restaurant in town called Santoor, winner of some prices as best ethnic restaurant in Ireland.

Marian is a great hostess! She recommended a great Pub for dinner within walking distance in Oranmore. One of the best meals we had on our trip. Marian was also very helpful in suggesting a tour route for the following day which we followed to the tee and we were not disappointed. We came back late in the dark and got a little lost coming back though Galway but it was all part of the adventure. Breakfast was delightful and we swapped great B&B stories as we are B&B hosts in Canada.

The room we had was spacious, very clean and comfortable. we could not have chosen a better place to park ourselves to two nights. I would highly recommend a stay with Marian. thanks Marian for the wonderful hospitality!

I was traveling Ireland with my son. We were staying at B&Bs along the way. The Birches is off the main road but very easy to find. We were greeted by the owner and shown to our room promptly. She offered us tea and delivered it to our room while we were settling in. The town of Orenmore was within walking distance and Galway was a 15 minute drive. The room was clean and comfortable. The shower was small but there was a huge bathroom and shower in the hall if you chose to use it. Breakfast was delicious with a variety of items to choose from. The owner( I can't remember her name) was very informative and a pleasure to talk with. I would definitely recommend this B&B.
