“Fantastic B&B”
Reviewed March 23, 2011

My boyfriend and I stayed here for three nights and were very warmly welcomed by Dolores and her family. The breakfasts were great and Dolores went out of her way to ensure we were comfortable. The place has lots of charm and character which makes it feel like a real Irish family home. The room was clean and tidy and was perefect for us. I would definitely recommend this place as it is conveniently located and run by some great people!

My wife and I stayed at The Forge B&B for 7 days in January 2011. We were very pleased with the wonderful hospitality given by Delores and her family! She was very accomodating and helpful with our stay in the beautiful area of Galway. Her breakfasts were wonderful--plenty to eat!! We would definitely stay at this B&B again, A++++++!!

This is a great B&B and very close to all the central bars, shopping streets and Galway bay. The rooms are very clean and have en suite bathrooms, TV and Wifi is available free. The full Irish breakfast is enormous and delicious. Dolores and Bernard give everyone a very warm welcome. I would recommend this B&B for a short stay. For the location it is very good value. The beds were comfortable and it is in a quiet street., so you get some sleep. Pubs, shopping, the bridges, sights and Galway Bay are 5 minutes walk away. I would stay there again definitely.

The Forge House is a very nice B&B. I went there with my girlfriend and we got a very large and clean(!) room. The hosts are very friendly and they even made an effort to bring back much money to me which I forgot at their B&B.
The location is also very good, because you only have a 5 min walk to the center of Galway.
This B&B was indeed the best during our trip to ireland.
So if you want to have a nice time in Galway, just go to the Forge House.

We had a very nice stay at this b&b in the centre of Galway which is the best city we visited in Ireland. Dolores is a very friendly host and we payed just 130 euro for a twin room for 2 nights with parking for our car. It's just a 5 min. walk to the city centre. The room was acceptable but we stayed at he ground floor. It's was a bit noisy and it's was quite hot in the room, we couldn't open the window far enough.

Dolores is very friendly and kind. I love her. The location is very good. Near every attractions and city center. Room is clean but tiny. Breakfast is delicious. I visit the other room for 3 persons is large. I think if the price for twin beded room could have lower price ,because of the tiny space. The value will be better. Anyway, I still recommend this B&B. Especial for the location and welcome atmosphere.

The hostess was very friendly, however, we were totally put off by this place. While the rooms were supposed to be non smoking , the house itself smelled like smoke. Our room was a little odd, in that the one side had a shower stall, but the other side had a toilet. The main issue I had with this place was that there was hair all over the floor and in the shower. The towels were ripped and stained, and so were the sheets. It just didn't feel clean at all. The location was great...walking distance to city center, and there was parking in the lot behind the house. Stay elsewhere for a few euro more.
