We stayed with Brid and Uli for two nights over the recent Christmas holiday period, having stayed at the same B&B a number of times over the past 20 years.
After a long trip up from Cork we were welcomed with sandwiches and coffee upon arrival. Brid is a great host and made us feel welcome straight away. We were informed that breakfast the following day would be served at any time we chose. This came in handy as we "explored" some of the local pubs that night and rose at midday the following day. Many B&Bs have a cut-off time for breakfast which means rising at dawn or choosing to stay in bed and skip breakfast. Breakfast is a full Irish "fry" and is a great way to start the day.
The rooms here are modern, clean and of a higher quality than most other B&Bs we visited on this trip. The B&B has been run by the same couple for over 20 years and we have noticed it has been redecorated frequently. Our room had satellite tv and an en-suite bathroom. Great value considering the cost of hotels in the city.
Galway is a great place to visit and we have included it on all our trips to Ireland because it means that we are guaranteed a few comfortable nights at Linderhof. This is a great place to stay for a few nights or a week as the hospitality is beyond comparison and the location is a great base for exploring the surrounding area.
The B&B is within a 5 minute walk of the main streets in the city and the hosts can provide recommendations on the best pubs, restaurants and sights in the area.
