“Our best B&B experience!”
Reviewed June 20, 2012

We stayed in several B&Bs during our 14 day tour or Ireland and Northern Ireland, and this was definitely our best stay. The home is beautiful, welcoming, and tastefully decorated, rooms/bathrooms immaculate. This is a very professionally run B&B, and Caroline and Larry the best hosts we encountered on our 4 weeks touring Scotland and Ireland. We were a little worn out and tired after a long day of sightseeing, and were astounded and happy when Caroline/Larry apparently noticed this and offered to drive us to a wonderful pub for a cold beer and pub food (not your average pub food, definitely restaurant quality!). Under different circumstances we could/would have walked to this great pub (Donnelly's), but this gesture clearly shows the astuteness and caring mindset of our hosts. When we left the next day (we wished we had planned to stay longer, but by then we were committed and could not cancel our next B&B), Larry gave us wonderful information and instructions to drive through Connemara (magical!). We loved everything about this B&B and feel it definitely deserves a higher than 3 star rating. Thank you, Caroline and Larry, for a wonderful stay.

We enjoyed our stay at the Kilbrack House. The owners were very nice, helpful, knowledgable, and efficient. We would highly recommend this B&B.

Room Tip: Ask for the room with the view of the water.

We loved Coco, the owner's little spaniel! The B&B owners were very helpful with directions and suggestions of places to go. My biggest complaint was the very firm mattress and pillows. The bathroom actually had a window, which was nice since there wasn't an exhaust fan. We had an almost traditional Irish breakfast (no black or white pudding, which was fine with me) one of the mornings and it was good. We liked the locations--close to Galway City, Barna, and Spittle.

Side note about Galway City---the driving was more stressful in the city.

Caroline and Larry were absolutely wonderful hosts. Their home was very clean and beatiful. They made our breakfast to order and presented it with Irish china settings. They were willing with advise and very friendly. Definitely recommend Kilbrack House.

Accommodation in Kilbrack House felt like we were occupying a room in a friends house, such was the atmosphere created by Larry and his wife. The House was very clean and neat, wifi tea/coffee in each room and the guest lounge appeared very comfortable.
Breakfast was very good, with a selection of cereals, cold and hot foods and fruit provided.
Larry and his wife pleasant and helpful Larry gave us excellent advice on places to see and roads to take around Clifden and Cong (where the annual Quiet Man Festival happened to be occurring with one of its stars, Maureen O’Hara, as the 2011 special guest).
A laundrette was 10 minutes driving away.
Highly recommended for a night in Galway, a much larger than expected and interesting city!

Room Tip: Any of the rooms would be ok.

Stayed here travelling with a friend through Europe. The entire family was kind, welcoming, and very generous. Upon arrival, they did not have our exact room available that we had reserved, so they were able to give us each our own room at no extra charge. It was a little further our from the city center of Galway, but the accomodations and hospitality were definitely worth it. Easy to taxi to Galway, clean accomodations, more modern decor, and a great Irish welcome. Would stay here again.

The property is fairly new, probably no more than 3 years or so. Very clean, large and a relaxing atmosphere. What set this property apart for us was the owner's incredible knowledge of both the area and insight into Irish history and heritage. You must set aside at least 30+ minutes to talk with them about Irish history.
