“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

We absolutely loved our stay at the Fourwinds Lodge. The home is beautiful, and Bernie, the owner, is beyond fantastic. She was so welcoming to our family, and seemed genuinely interested in what we were planning to do, where we were from, and why we were in Galway. She also went out of her way to look up information for us on things to see and do. If we are ever in Galway again we would definitely stay at the Fourwinds Lodge.

My husband, teenaged son and I stayed here in August of 2012. We had the room on the top floor. It was very clean and comfortable. The beds were great. We had an amazing view of the ocean. The shower was nice and very clean. Galway City was an absolute delight and the Fourwinds Lodge was a great place for us to stay and explore from. Breakfast was very good the next morning - very traditional Irish. Bernie was very welcoming and the solarium was nice. We would definitely stay there again.

Bernie is very nice and the home is absolutely gorgeous. My wife and I had a room overlooking Galway Bay when we work up in the morning, just fantastic. Breakfast was delicious and the patio is gorgeous. A very playful collie also resides on the residence! :)

This B&B was wonderful. The solarium was the best part. Very roomy, nice and quite and the grounds were unbelieveable. Very friendly host, and breakfast was great. Will definately stay here again. It was fun looking at all the different items she has used in decorating this great home.

Four Winds is a lovely home, with a stunning garden. Our room was large and comfortable. Bernie and her husband were beyond helpful - cannot state that strongly enough. The one negative was the shower, which was a bit moldy. Beyond that, our stay was excellent.

The location is perfect if you are taking the ferry to the Aran Islands. They will pick you up and drop you off a block from Four Winds - so much easier than trying to make it into downtown Galway!

Room Tip: Third floor has a fantastic view of the gardens and bay.

My husband and I, and my daughter and her boyfriend stayed at the Fourwinds this September. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and the hostess Bernie was very welcoming. The solarium and grounds were beautiful and provided a great place to sit back and relax! Galway was one of our favourite stops (great shopping!) and the B&B is a short, inexpensive taxi ride away from the town center (the cab drivers were very entertaining which made the ride all the more worthwhile!). This was one of our favourite B&Bs. Highly recommend for those who like to go the B&B route.
