“Great B&B in Salthill - Galway City”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2009

We visited Galway City recently for the Volvo Ocean race. The race spent a week in Galway City. We stayed at Coolin House in Salthill. We had the most wonderful view of Galway Bay. We could see the boats as we walked along the Promenade to the centre of Salthill.
Coolin House was a great place to stay. We could come and go and have a coffee as we wished. The owners were very welcoming and gave us lots on advise on what to see while in Galway. The breakfast was a real home cooked meal with a great selection to choose from. We will certainly recommend it to friends.
Galway is a great city to visit and with the Volvo race there, every place was buzzing.

We visited Galway recently and stayed at Coolin House B&B in Salthill.
The B&B is right beside the Promenade. There is the most wonderful walk into the centre of Salthill. Coolin House has been recently refurbished. The rooms are spacious, bright and airy. The breakfast was the best home cooked breakfast we had in a long time.
The lady in the house was very helpful in helping us organise out day trip of Connemara.
It is also on the bus route, which we took for a visit into Galway City centre.
We really were made feel welcome in Coolin House. I was like a home away from home.

During a family break to Galway City, we stayed at Coolin House B&B in Salthill. The accommodation was first class. The rooms were spacious and clean. We were greeted with a cup of tea when we arrived. The breakfast was full Irish with the most wonderful brown bread.
Coolin House is located beside Galway Golf Club at the end of the renown Salthill Promenade. The promenade consists of a two walk overlooking Galway Bay from Galway Golf Club almost to the City.
We had a most enjoyable break, helped in no small way by the accommodation we selected.

  • Liked — The location, overlooking Galway Bay.
  • Disliked — Not being able to book online.
